The weather today was gorgeous with temps hovering at 70 degrees here. I moved Amelia's house (a hot water heater box) onto the deck and we got out her paints and decorated for a while.
Right now, Joel and Amelia are jamming on their harmonicas. We went to the used book store yesterday and Joel got a new book about playing the harmonica to add to his collection. I've been with this man for over 13 years now and have only ever heard him play Oh Susannah.

She has lost a bit of weight in the last couple of months and it's harder to get her to eat. The best days for her are the ones that Joel takes her to work with him. She gets to be with him all day which is all she really wants and when they get home, she eats without me having to put eggs or beef broth on her food and is generally very well behaved. I guess he'll just have to take her with him more often.

I recorded this little bit last night but didn't get a chance to add it until today. What a great thing for her to remember.
Joel took Amelia with him to vote in the Presidential Election this year, explaining the whole event to her. I was at a parent meeting that night but when I got home, Amelia announced to me that Barak Obama was the new President and also told me that "John Acain was crying." That was definately a moment that I wish we had recorded. She can now say "McCain" and she can spot President Obama in the news stories.

In regards to my back; I have a lot less pain if I stay up and moving. If I sit down, it's hard to get back up and I don't really bend down to pick anything up, that's Amelia's job!
Well... I'm going to enjoy this beautiful weather while it's here... I'm going outside!!!

Amelia gets to go back to school tomorrow and she's soooo excited. She keeps asking how much longer it will be before she can go see Charlie (her friend at school). She doesn't really now how long to wait for tomorrow but she's trying to be patient. I'm excited too because she is officially potty trained and I can do a drop off day where I don't have to be there with her!
