4 and 6 year old check ups

Last week we finally made it to the pediatrician for some overdue check ups.

KK weighed in at 41 lbs and 46.25"; 50th percentile for weight and height. Matt weighed in at 31 lbs and 39.75"; 25th percentile for weight and height. Either Matt is about to hit a growth spurt or he is a shrinky-dink. I guess only time will tell.

The 4 year old check up is the awful one with 4 shots and a finger prick. I'd love to write that Matt took it like a champ but that couldn't be further from the truth - he screamed bloody murder.

After the "suffering" we celebrated our survival with a brief outing to the aquarium. It was so fun to spend free time with the kids on a weekday - some much needed downtime for everyone.

Choo choo

The Roof family featured here visiting the Amtrak 40th Anniversary moving train museum when it passed through Charleston. Of course we couldn't do something like this without thinking of Poppa!

Katharine's first book

Today I had the joy of attending a publishing party for the kindergartners at ECDC.  Katharine's book was titled, "The Dum Chikn".

After a personal reading from the author, we treated to some refreshments of sweet tea and cookies.

First trip to the vet

These two kittens were worn out from their first trip to vet and another round of vaccinations. They weighed in at 3 lbs and were very well behaved.

They are scheduled for declawing at the end of the month.

A couple days in AL with the grandparents. Featured here with Grandpa Willert on an outing to the McWane Science Center in Birmingham. Everyone had a blast!

The greatest show on earth

At least I know KK thought so! She had the good fortune to be invited by her good friend, Holland and boy did they have a blast. Katharine reported that her favorite parts were the clowns and the acrobats.
