Wet days, dry pants

So, I mentioned in my last post that I enjoy a good rainy day every now and then as a welcomed break from steamy hot September days. Well, I think that I can speak for all of Northwest Georgia (and much of the southeast!) right now when I say that we are sick of rain! We in Rome have been fortunate enough to have not experienced the tremendous flooding taking place in Atlanta, but how much rain can sun-loving folks like us take?! Surely the crisp blue fall skies are out there and arriving to us soon, right?! We saw sunlight this afternoon, so I feel a little optimism creeping in!

Thanks to a fever virus, Aly missed the first official dance class, but got to go last week. She loved it and was very proud of herself. Because she wears the outfit almost daily, my new ambition is to keep it somewhat clean and presentable for the actual class. When I asked her recently what she wanted to be for Halloween, it was no surprise when she answered, "A ballerina." Done, darlin'!

And thanks to the rain, we decided to buckle down and get serious about potty-training. I say (with a little nervous trepidation!) that Caroline is trained! We picked out her big-girl panties (I feel a little weird typing "panties" over the Internet!) on Monday, as she is proudly displaying below. She's done a great job!
