About Me

My photo
I'm a hand-holding, swing-pushing, story-telling Mama with a creative streak and a nurturing spirit. I like growing food and flowers (and people, hehe), sewing clothes and quilts, cooking and eating and running, a long, tight hug and the color yellow. I love date nights at home, spontaneous trips to the bookstore and hearing my babies laugh. I am indecisive, exaggerrative and I overuse parentheses. I am reflective and sentimental and quick to laugh. I think I still picture myself as a 22-year old, yet every year my life gets more fulfilling. I am still figuring out exactly who I am. :)

I'm guessing you wanted to see some pictures of the kids?

Lucy can ride her bike with training wheels! She loves being able to ride with the big kids, but she is mischievous, and always "forgets" her helmet, then runs away when I try to put it on, little stinker! :) 
Claire has had a few "skills meets" where they are not timed but instead evaluated on their strokes.
She likes hanging out with the other little swimmers, and Alex and Lucy like running around the grass by the pool.
I love watching her standing on those blocks ready to jump in and looking so small,
and Noah loves embarrassing me with his loud cheers. :)

They've been getting along really well, which is always nice. :)

One of my favorite things is making dinner and hearing them running around playing together in the backyard,
even if it almost always ends with someone unintentionally getting hurt. :)

We participated in our local Light the Night walk for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society- all the balloons had little lights inside that glowed as we walked. :)

She lost her other front tooth!
Now she's lisping because she can't quite figure out how to say her s's without any front teeth- so cute!

She's been very into jump rope lately!
It's cool how fast she picked it up- first day, she couldn't get three in a row, then a week later she was doing 60 in a row!

She earned the Big Cat Award (student of the month), and she got a drawstring bag with her school mascot, the jaguar.
We think we're clever because we came up with the name "Jag Bag" hehe :)

We went to the fair with Nana and Grampa and Uncle Nathan

He loves things to be clean and one day decided to take matters into his own hands and clean up the dishes for me, hehe

trampoline at Oma and Opa's house

helping me chop sweet potatoes for dinner (he has since decided he wants to be King Boo from Super Mario for Halloween, and I'm attempting to make his costume. We'll see how that goes, hehe)

They always like "foot rides" to bed at night.

She got her first friend phone call :)

Picture day!
So, I think you're caught up!

Today is the day we have all been waiting for- chilly, gloomy and rainy!

I think we will have grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch. :)
