Wow! Summer is crazy!

July 19, 2008

Wow.  I can’t believe it’s the middle of July already.  Where is it going?!?  I still have to finalize my curriculum lists for next year and get things ordered.  It’s going to be time to start soon.  I need to get on the ball.

I thought I’d take a little bit of time and give quick updates on us. 

Christopher has been experiencing some growing pains.  He wants to be grown up so badly, but refuses to accept with growing up comes more responsibility.  We’re working on him, but he’s a tough nut to crack.  He’s started sharing in our Bible reading time at night and seems very proud of himself that he’s doing so well.  I’m expecting LOTS of progress with him this year.

Erin is so ready for school to start she can taste it.  She’s reading pretty much on her own now…which should make things go a lot smoother next year.  As great as she’s doing, she still lacks confidence in her own abilities though.  We’ve been working on a few things that are just for her to help with that and so far so good.

Sean.  Wow.  Is this the boy we had to do speech therapy with??  Sometimes he’s still a little hard to understand, but he doesn’t stop talking these days!  It’s so nice to see him finally growing into his own skin.

Kelsie is 8 months old already!!!  When did that happen!!?? (Yeah, 3 days ago!  LOL)  She’s crawling all over the place now and started pulling up and cruising around on her own a lot too.  Looks like she’s going to follow in the trend of an early walker.  She finally got her first tooth last weekend too!!  After several cranky nights she seems to have settled in and is relaxing now.  It hasn’t effected her nursing or eating any yet either…which I say is AWESOME! 

Daddy is working like a crazy man.  Between work and work at the church and keeping up with the yard work and things that need attention on the house (summer jobs), he barely sits still.  Mom, you’ll be happy to know I finally cut his hair.  So at least he’s not so shaggy and that should help him stay cooler when he’s out in the heat.

I’m doing well.  Still working on getting things more organized and decluttered around here…including me.  I’ve lost 68 lbs since Kelsie was born and REALLY can’t wait to loose more.  It’s hard work, but I’m okay with that…for now. 

I’ve taken a ton of pictures the last few weeks, but haven’t been online much to post.  We had our niece and nephew here for three days last week and that totally threw my schedule out of whack.  I’m trying to get laundry and all those fun things caught back up now and then I’ll post some pictures.

So, that’s us in a nutshell.
