Aleya met with a post today on the playground at school. She hit her left eye on this post while attempting to go down the slide. She didn't do any damage to her eye, thankfully, though the lid was quite swollen and blue. This evening, the swelling has subsided quite a bit, and she seems much better. I think it will be sore and "pretty" for a few days though.

We are basking in the beautiful temperatures this week - 70's! Finally! We have seen snow for so long that the warmth and sunshine cheers us all. We cannot be outside enough!

March 29 -

Today is trash day. In West Des Moines we are given one day a year when we can get rid of junk by putting it on the curb and the trash men will come by and take it away. Unfortunately, all the girls are busy doing school things so Tom and I are left with getting all of it on the curb. I think we fill the curb every year, but this year looks to be a little bit slight. The fun part is watching all the people drive by with their trucks loading your junk into their vehicles. Our trash - their treasure!
