Well, we are done!! Potty training, that is! Talk about easy-peasy!! Ava-girl went from zero to telling us "I go big girl potty!" in just a day and a half. We even went shopping ALL day yesterday and she did SUPER. No more yuckie diapers--Hooray!! BTW--Happy 4th of July everyone! We are picking Itziar up at the airport in just a half-hour and then (if she's up for it) scooting off to a BBQ with another Basque Host Family and perhaps fireworks--although I don't think she'll last that long after an 11 hour plane ride and jet lag, too...
