Magali had her kindergarten assessment, and she knew everything. She only needs to practice reading.
We are remodeling the two rooms on the main floor. The boys will go downstairs (the basement is almost finished), and the girls will be here on the main floor. So we're painting and putting hardwood floors. Everything should be ready by next week. Right now the house is a mess, things everywhere, but it's at least clean. We just have all the kids clothes on a chair in our room, and dust from the carpet that was removed. I'm trying to be patient with the construction. I know I'll love the rooms, the floors, the bathrooms after they are finished. Now we all have very bad allergies; that is, all except for Joax! That's a proof his naet treatment worked. I guess we'll all be getting it this year. The treatment that is.
I just can't believe we were in England a month ago. It's like a dream. Waht a beautiful place!
Well, tomorrow we have two soccer games, and we're coaching Juli's. You should see Maga. She looks so healthy and full of life when she plays. She fills my heart with love. All four of them do. My gorda is just gorgeous. I can't get enough of her.
One of the highlights of my day? When Juli's teracher told me how bright he is. It's something else when a stranger confims your feelings. Yes, he's beautiful and smart, and tender and sweet.

their baby contest, so he and Jeff got to ride a train in the parade. The kids were ecstatic their baby brother had won the contest. Last year they were very bummed he hadn't won. "How come they don't see how beautiful he is!" Juli kept asking. Areli won the Baby Gerber award. I heard a little girl tell her mom, "Did you see that baby? If he (their baby boy) is competing agaisnt her, we don't have a chance. She's gorgeous!" I guess a winner in the family is enough.
Summer is coming to a close so very fast; and the kids start school next Monday!
