What a week for the Ziniel family!
We are thrilled to celebrate Aurora earning her yellow belt a little over a week ago. She worked very hard for this achievement, and we were very impressed with her Tae Kwon Doe skills! She also officially graduated 1st grade yesterday and will be in 2nd grade next year. She had an amazing report card, and we are very proud of her! Her last bit of "big news" is she auditioned and received a part in her first play! She will be in VCACT's production of 101 Dalmatians at the end of June. Her character is "Spunky Poodle" (she chose the name).
Kyle has been enjoying many trips to the park with Brittani this week. I also enjoyed spending mornings with just him and I. We colored, played games, put together puzzles and had a great time! I think he enjoyed his sister not being around :-)
Today was our 38 week visit, and although we plan on 2 more weeks before the birth of the baby, we were reminded that it could be any day now! We will not have a 39 week visit next wee as planned, as the drive to Fargo has become very exhausting and the doctor saw no real need for one. The baby is doing well . . . as am I! The doctor did not even measure my belly this time, stating that I was "plenty large". And I am HUGE! I do not think I was this large with either of the other children.
We are looking forward to a restful and relaxing long 4 day weekend at home. Dennis and Linda should be arriving some time next week and the kids are THRILLED!
Also, a reminder, Aurora's birthday party will be next Sunday, the 6th at 12:00 at Pizza Corner.
