We were invited to the Zoo one day with Nicholas, one of Jac's classmates. However, we got rained out, imagine that. So we went to the Magic House. It was our first time there. We were early and they let us join a little class that was going on, very nice first impression! We had a lot of fun, but I don't recommend taking two toddlers by yourself! I got quite the workout.
Mia had a lot of fun in her mommy and me class. Mia was quite taken with the two cars in the class. My question is, why do men always think they need to drive? Mia also liked the Playdo a lot. She really started using it well, versus just making a big mess.
The class was a success, we had a lot of fun and Mia got the opportunity to play in a group of kids her own age.

Trooper died this weekend. We were completely caught off guard and had no idea that anything was wrong. It was hard. He was like our first baby. So far Jac and Mia have adjusted well (much better than mommy and daddy). I was sad for a few days and would cry unexpectedly over little things like coming home from the grocery store and not having Trooper greet us. Jac would tell me, "don't be sad mommy, be happy!" The only time I got worried was when Jac said, "don't worry mommy, Trooper will be back soon." We had a conversation about how he wasn't coming back and Jac didn't have a mild melt down and screamed, "I want to see him now!" However, he was over quickly when I told him that he would need to look at Trooper's picture if he wanted to see him. I am sure we will get to have this conversation a few more times.
Trooper touched a place in our hearts and everyone's he met. He was part of our family and will be missed deeply.
