Day's Progress - Great; Plus K Turns 21 mo!

Super exhausted ... if I go to sleep now, I'll have just under two hrs before the kids wake me, but it was such a good day that I wanted to post something - anything - to remember (and try to keep the momentum going).

Music: Here's the update to our SM Progress Post:, which includes links to pics and a vid.

Everything Else - Here's a general outline I put together.  I didn't get to review it in the whole day, but after the kids fell asleep, I was able to make some minor adjustments.
