Hope all is well out there! Things are good here - Dustin seems to have the worst of a head cold here and Brenna is getting over hers. I kept her home from school again today - she was bouncing more today (literally - she jumped all over the couches and on the pillows - I think a sign of recovery) - I think she ran around in the living room circle for about 45 minutes today as well (maybe a sign that I needed to take her out of the house for a walk earlier??)! We tried to do a few more activities today - we colored eggs this morning (I know Easter isn't until April, but I need to use up my food coloring here, plus Dustin eats lots of boiled eggs and I thought it would be a good activity for Brenna), we made homemade cinnamon buns (yummy and Brenna loved getting her hands in the dough), Brenna fingerpainted and did some other crayola painting, and we walked to the grocery store here in town (where I probably didn't make a friend in the cashier when I gave her 14 Euro in small coins today (20 cent coins and smaller)). Brenna was so cute at the store - she took one of her new bags and really wanted the cashier to see it and then she went to the end of the counter to take her money out to pay :-) (I let her put that money in her piggy bank when we got home as we didn't end up spending it at the store...) Brenna raced Justice up one of the hills her during our walk today (one of the people walking by said it looked like we were having fun - I think Brenna's giggles said it all, lol).
Well, I think we are all going to turn in early tonight - hopefully Brenna will sleep well. Brenna fell asleep at the supper table tonight at about 5:45 (Dustin was very bummed that he missed seeing her awake).
