Someone mentioned to Ben that I have not been in the blogs lately. So here's a picture to prove I'm still around. These days I can usually be found wherever Evangeline is.
These stools had suede on them that I had to scrub after every meal. So I decided to cover them with vinyl. Here is how they turned out. It was pretty easy to do. It was my first time using a staple gun, and my first time using Ben's drill without his help (or permission). The girls were a lot more excited about it than I thought they would be. They are both really into dresses lately, especially Kiersten. I can't get her to wear pants lately.
I thought it was cute the other night when Ben was helping Kara read. she's been learning to read words for a few months, and I have started teaching her to read sentences. I was just writing simple sentences on paper, since most of her books have some words that are still a little hard for her. A few nights ago, Ben came home with these early reader books for her. They are perfect. And she is so proud to be able to read an entire book without us telling her any of the words.
