On day two of wearing the special Primary sticker…anyone want to put in a guess as to how long the sticker will stay sticky? We’ve already transferred it from Sunday clothes to pajamas to our outfit today.
Well, since I almost kind of updated last month (aka wrote something) on this space, maybe you dedicated readers deserve something more this month. 🙂
Halle turned one year old–in fact she is almost 15 months old. Time flies.
Rachel is in preschool and is once again counting down the days until her birthday–about 45 if you want to know. (That would be give or take a few because I’m not sure how accurate that is.)
Katie is in first grade and just finished up spring break…and I already miss her happy face and tender heart around here all day. She told me that she was sad before recess today because she missed me. (Ahhh…I love that kid.)
I got a new calling in December. I am the Primary Music Leader–which if you must know I really LOVE. It helps if you don’t mind being a dork (a musical dork at that) in front of all those kids. Although I do miss my RS peeps. It’s a little more lonely without 3 hour meetings.
Scott has pretty much recovered fully from his accident nearly a year ago. He will always have a few scars and now sports new fake teeth, but I’ll take it! I’m so grateful it wasn’t worse.
And here’s a pic of the three kids (what! They are all in a picture together!?!?! That never happens. Ignore Halle’s crazy hair.)
Just maybe…maybe….I might be thinking of updating this blog. (Chorus in the background: hallelujah or a funeral march–your choice)
Katie wanted to write a post on my blog. She also was the photographer of this picture. I love it when she writes anything. I can just see so much growth in her learning this past year in kindergarten.
My perits are the best perinst in the wrald
i love my baby. rachel too
i love school.
I went to my friend Audrey’s when Halle was first born because I wanted to get some cute pictures of her before she was two weeks old. I have new respect for all of you that take pictures of newborns! We did get some cute ones, but it was hard to get her to fall asleep! And I was working within some time constraints because I had to get Katie to school right after lunch.
Here’s some of my favorites. Thanks so much, Audrey for helping me and for feeding my girls lunch! I’ll see if I can get some more pictures up later.
So ok, one of the real reasons (besides laziness) that I haven’t updated this blog is because we are expecting our third baby! I dropped off the planet in a lot of ways for a little while. We are very excited to welcome another little girl into our family in January. (Yes, apparently we only do girls in our family!) Katie and Rachel are so excited–they can’t wait to have a new baby sister. Rachel tells me almost every day that she wants her new baby sister now.
And in other news, I am now the parent of a kindergarten daughter. Where has the time gone?
She started school on her birthday, so it was a big day for us. She requested gogurts for her “healthy snack” at school. (Her school doesn’t allow treats for birthdays, but you can bring something healthy.) So Rachel and I got to see her at school on her first day. Then, we had a party that night with her grandparents. And, as soon as the grandparents left, she dissolved into tears. “It’s my party and I can cry if I want to.” But who can blame her with a first day of school and a birthday? Too much fun. In fact, that’s what she did say, “I had too much fun today!”
Hello world. Seriously, has it really been almost four months since I last posted? Why, yes, yes it has. And to think that there are still people out there checking this thing. Especially since I have not been checking it.
Well, I’ll see what I can do to add more posts in the next little while. But, no promises.
For the last little while, I have been trying something new with Katie. Each day, I have her tell me the three most important things she wants to do during the day. I also write down three and if Rachel is there and seems to care, I have her tell me three things she wants to do as well.
This has been working well for both Katie and I. I tend to focus too much on myself and what I need to get done. I forget that Katie and Rachel have desires of things that they would like to accomplish as well. And by limiting the “to-do” list to only three things, makes it feel manageable during one day. We can usually get through Katie’s and my combined six items. (If Rachel participates, her three things usually copy Katies.)
Katie’s list today:
2. play Wii
3. help Mommy with pictures
Rachel’s list today:
2. go to Grandma’s store
3. color my picture that I printed
Good question. I get easily distracted sometimes. I also decided to take a short break which stretched into two weeks. I will be updating this blog regularly (hopefully!!) starting tomorrow.
Today I have errands to run…grocery store, Lowe’s…and then I am working on some projects. So until tomorrow amigos…
