On the mend

We have had almost a full week of sickness over here, with temperatures in the upper 103s, lethargy, coughing, restlessness, and just a full spectrum of miserableness. Elena is now about 95% all better, and Clara is at about 75% - so we are working our way out of this, at least!

Elena asked me to take a video of her with her "Bear Bottoms" on - so we did. You don't get a very good view of them, despite the showing-off, but most of the Gap Kids tights have a bear face right on the behind section of the tights, and the girls love them.

In this video, you can note two skills. First, Clara's great ability to follow directions. Even though at one point I ask Elena to lift up her hand so we can see her bum, it's Clara who follows through lifting her hand high above her head for most of the video! Second, note Elena's uncanny ability to snap. Christina didn't gain this skill until about 6 or 7 years old, but because the girls love the "snapping song" we play in the car ("My Girl") they love the idea of snapping, and it turns out that Elena turned herself into a snapping prodigy, as evidenced in the video. We hope you can hear that she really is snapping!
