The only thing is, #1 I have to be involved, okay, that is fine, but #2 the whole sidewalk and driveway have to be covered in chalk before it is okay for us to go inside. This takes a lot of time and creativity. She doesn't want us to draw the same thing over and over again, in fact, she doesn't even like me to draw the same things two days in a row. I am really running out of ideas. It has been really fun though. We have come up with some fun pictures.
Last night I wrote everyone's names (REALLY BIG to take up space) and Kennedy decided to copy me. She already knows how to write her name and Tori's name, but she also added Dad and Mom. It is really light in this picture, but I thought she did a GREAT job.
(and the little thing she is drawing does not have a name, she just thought it looked COOL!)
One day Tori came home from preschool and announced to Austin that she was going to ride her bike without training wheels and he needed to take them off right then. This came as quite a surprise, because Tori is a bit a a chicken in things of this nature. He told her that this might require to to fall on the pavement and get a little scrapped up, but she was determined.
She did surprisingly well the very first time. Since then she has been out on the bike whenever Dad is home (and awake at a normal time) and the weather is nice. So only a few times. But she is getting so much better every time down the street. Yesterday Austin said that it may only be a couple of weeks until she can do it on her own. I think that for most kids it wouldn't take that long, but I just don't think that my pregnant self could go running up and down the street with her right now. Wouldn't be pretty.
Kennedy is also loving the bike riding. She wants to ride right alongside Tori, although Tori's legs allow her to go a little faster. Kennedy may soon be riding without training wheels too.

This is Kennedy's idea of listening to Tori read. Actually, I think that Tori was making a game out of not letting her see the pictures because they ended up on the floor wrestling and giggling.
