Jerry's mom came to visit this month!  What started as a few nights stay has turned into a permanent change of residency.  Luckily she does not make a lot of noise or take up much space.  Currently Caroline has 4 new roommates to watch over.  If anyone can handle it Caroline can.  She is a LOVER of dolls- which she is certain are real.  She never leaves home without making sure her babies are situated and before bed each night she makes sure everyone is tucked in tight.  The one problem comes when Sarah wakes up at 4AM and Caroline comes to my room to report that Sarah is awake and will not go back to sleep which is keeping Caroline awake.  A very groggy and tired mom responds to Caroline with "You better tell Sarah to get to bed or there will be no playing outside today."  Thankfully Sarah is usually able to get herself back to sleep. Caroline's roommates have learned from cousins Sam and Charlie how to handstands.  Caroline is very proud of them and likes to take photos of them doing their tricks.  
Talk about being born to be a mother and a hostess with the mostess.

Shoe-a-holic

Caroline has a slight obsession with her red shoes.  But I mean can you blame her?  A girl has got to have her shoes because at times a pair of shoes just seems to make the outfit.
The red shoes are never far away.  They can be used for going swimming, riding bikes, going to church or just a stroll through the neighborhood.  

We had a small crisis- we outgrew the red shoes.  There was no more squeezing into them.  We searched high and low for a replacement.  Finally, the Old Navy clearance rack struck us a deal at $2.47.  

All is well in the world of Caroline again.  

Full of Joy





This pretty much sums up the summer thus far.  This girl is goofier than you can imagine and keeps us laughing all day.

Farewell Canterbury

We ended a great school year.  Caroline LOVED preschool and I'm certain preschool loved her.  She ended the year with the Hungry Caterpillar party.  She informed Mrs. McNabb that she would not be singing but that she would smile.  Caroline did exactly that.  I think Caroline may be more a behind the scenes gal.

Caroline simply adored Mrs. McNabb and I'm pretty sure the feeling was mutual.  They both have a love for fashion.  Caroline's end of the year progress report noted that Caroline would always stop after her morning routine to show off a new hairbow, outfit or her famous red shoes.  


Mrs. McNabb will always hold a special place in our hearts as Caroline's first teacher and the one who first fostered Caroline's love for learning.

Easter 2014


As you can see Caroline wasn't quite so photogenic for the family photo.  We should have just called it quits with the sibling picture.

Hilton Head 2014

 This face pretty much sums up Caroline's feelings the entire week of vacation.  Caroline just couldn't seem to get enough of vacation.  She loved having her family with her for the WHOLE week.

Caroline made sure Grandma Dickmeyer  got where she needed to be.  

 Caroline was also quit the fish.  She had no fear.  From the first jump into the pool she was in love.

 She also quite the fashionista when she went dolphin watching.  As long as she had her shades on she was ready for anything!


Thanks for the memories Grandma and Grandpa Dickmeyer!  Until next time...

February 2014

The snow has kept us from doing a lot this month.  Grace missed a lot of school because of the snow, however Caroline did not.  It was a point of rivalry within our house.  We joked that since Caroline did not miss school she would definitely be in the running for valedictorian.  Between the snow storms Caroline's class celebrated Valentine's Day.  Caroline was pretty proud of her Valentine's Day outfit.  Not only did she have a glitter heart on her dress she had hearts on her leggings as well.


Caroline's current loves are: Sarah and Jerry, baby Hudnut and Ramona and Beezus The Movie.
