French Braids

When my mom comes to visit, she puts beautiful braids in my girl's hair.  So, last fall after Oma left, CC naturally asked for a braid.  I replied with, "Sorry sweets!  Your Mama doesn't know how to French Braid."  CC then quoted my very own words back to me, "If you don't practice Mama, you'll never learn."

Fast Forward 9 months:
I can French Braid!
Trust me, it's not easy learning on squirmy toddlers with fine hair!  So, please don't underestimate the talent displayed above!

Kachess Lake!

Gorgeous Vacation!
In CC's words, "This was the best vacation since I was one!"
We had a GREAT time!

Below, CC and Ben built a little fairy house on an old stump.

Thank you, Ben for all your efforts to make it happen and for picking the most beautiful campsite!  We made a lot of memories to share!  Love you!

And she's off...
She showed us the way to school.  Got in line behind her teacher and friend.  Marched into school like she had done it a million times.  Me? (you ask) Well, I'm hanging in there and super thankful for G's constant chatter this morning!
