"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

Today Dora was up super early and couldn't go back to sleep so I treated her to one of her favorites "Conveniet Store Coffee". After having that and Pop Tarts she watched Dance Moms while I caught up on my online email and messages and we headed out to her gymnastics class. (She loves Dance Moms, she records them because she says she likes drama!)

Here are a few pics of her at class:


Afterwards I offered to take her to a lunch date instead of going on Saturday like we usually do but she wanted to take the boys out to lunch instead so we went home and woke them up and decided we should all go to Chick Fil A. After a fun lunch out I had to run a few errands and get some essentials like toilet paper!

We went home for awhile and the boys hung out in their rooms and Dora watched a show or two and then I remembered I had to go uptown to pick up something from the lawyer's office so I decided since the weather was nice to walk the few blocks up town instead of drive. The kids decided to go with me and to walk the two youngest dogs as well.

When we got home they walked our little old girl Jessie and played a few video games. Bubba helped cook dinner and afterwards Dad took the boys to pick up some new games at Game Stop. On the way back he stopped by his cousin's house and much to Dora's surprise she is getting to have her cousin over for a last minute sleep over! This does not happen near enough and the girls are in Dora's room giggling already as I write this!
