Clumsy Exits, New Threads and Table Dancing

It's hard to pinpoint why this is so exciting to me - but my girls can now independently put on their own shoes and grab their own water supply when getting ready to leave the house.  I've never been a very graceful exiter, and since having kids the amount of time it takes me to get out the door annoys me almost as much as it annoys my husband.

They're all waiting for me in the car, I better get hustling.  After I pee.  And it's a little chilly, I should grab a layer....

As long as I keep them from monetizing naked table dancing as adults I think I've passed the test, right?!

Here's the final product of one art project.  Genevieve requested I spell out our WHOLE family's WHOLE names in stickers for her to bedazzle.  It spoke to my inner scrabble board so I complied:
