A Big Congrats!

So one year of Dental School down, three to go. Looking back, this first year actually went pretty fast, although some weeks felt like they just dragged on and on. I'm just glad it's over.
If Dan goes anywhere, Rayce goes into a slight panic wondering where he is. I guess he never got used to not having him around. They've been pretty inseparable since last Thursday. Dan has not been able to get a nap in yet, at least not a good nap. It feels like we should be doing something exciting to celebrate this milestone, instead, we are buying A/C filters at the Home Depot. Oh well, it's better with Dan around. I'm not the only one now saying "Rayce stop that", "Rayce don't touch that", "Rayce stop pulling Danielle's hair". Have I mentioned before he's a little physically high maintenance?

It rained here last week which was so nice, it even cooled down to the low to mid eighties. Rayce insisted on puting on his heaviest winter coat to go outside and play in it.
It only lasted a few days and now the temp has risen back up to around 100 degrees, which is okay because the kids started swim lessons today. I was a little worried that I signed Danielle up for a class that was a tad advanced for her, but she did great. She tries really hard to swim without getting her face wet at all. I've tried to tell her that getting your face in the water is kinda an integral part of swimming, but she seems to think it unnessesary. I don't care how she swims as long as she can. She was excited to wear her new swimsuit we got her at Target yesterday. I was sure it was going to be too big, but it fits her perfectly. I must be in a bit of self denial about how fast she's growing up. Raycey had fun at swimming lessons too, but I don't worry about him as much, he doesn't seem to be afraid of the water at all. Hmmm... that could be more worrysome than Danielle's fear of the water. It's crazy how different our kids are, and how similar too.

Avie is three months old today, and she's recently taken to sucking her thumb. I don't know if it will make her teeth all crooked, but she looks so cute when she does it. It's nice to not have to always be shoving her pacifier in her mouth. We always know where she is too, with all the smacking sounds she makes sucking it. She's a hoot.

Congratulations to you both!! I could not be prouder of both you and Danny. What an amazing accomplishment! It brings tears to my eyes as I am typing this. What a wonderful and smart brother and an equally wonderful and supportive sister-in-law (you know you are really my sis!) you two are! I can't wait for you to come home. Give my darling nieces and nephew squeezes and smooches for me. I love you!!
