a quick update

I have taken the time to sit down and write a quick update on our lives lately because one of my three devoted fans has mentioned they don't feel loved because of the lack of blogging. :) You know who you are!

- has a huge vocab for a 2 year old and talks constantly . . why did we teach him to talk?
- has been "that" free since monday afternoon! A huge success for us. He still asks for it several times a day but when told he's a big boy and big kids don't have passys he will usually drop it. If that doesn't work and he asks again all you have to do is say "where is your that?" His response "at hospital" then you ask "why is it as the hospital?' His response "help sick babies" . . yes you heard right . . we gave the "thats" to Tanya while she was at work to give to the sick babies to help them get well. He asks for it alot but hasn't cried for it yet. :)

a funny story about it: yesterday we were at daycare at the crack of dawn (7am). at that time of the morning all the early risers are together in one room. Around 7:45 Mrs.Deb takes the babies into their room and the big kids go to their room and we divide up the other kids by ages. Garrett had gotten into a argument with his sissy and was wanting his ruff ruff and his that. (that=passy) (ruff ruff = puppy) I gave his the puppy and we went through the whole above sphell about the passy. Well, then he looks at the baby room door and says "baby in there?" I answer "yes. that's the baby room" He says "babyies have thats?" I answer "yes babies have thats. but you are a big kid. big kids don't need thats" He looks at the door again and says "i go in there n get that with babies" . . i mean is he a genius or what people!?

- he loves to run fast like the race cars
- he loves his friends and family dearly
- he has the sweetest smile and funniest facial expressions

- just finished her 1st year of real school (Pre-K3) . . she loved it and thrived there
- she loves to color / draw / write . . on anything and everything
- she likes to be in charge . . . . of everything . . . quite independent young lady
- she's still growing like a weed
- she in curious about everything, how things work, why things happen
- she loves to help out
- with her new haircut she looks so old and grown up
- loves to hold cat all day
- can't wait to start going to the pool

- going to several high school graduations right now (a youth helpers job is never done)
- playing on a church volley ball team
- subbing for a church softball team
- working on some kind of programming stuff at work (i know real tech savvy aren't I?)
- teaching our children to tackle and tickle mommy
- working on the yard and house on weekends

- super busy at work trying to get ready for summer academy to start monday (have had 9 and 13 hours days lately)
- running after the kids all day and all night
- trying to catch up on household chores . . not really succeeding

That's the jist of what's going on here . . super busy with everyday life . . if you really really miss us faithful readers, please stop by (don't mind the huge mess) and demand to see us or meet us at the pool on my off days. :)

Well....I could meet you at the pool, but that is a really long drive :) Missed you and glad you updated. Good luck getting the camp set up- hope things slow down for you!

Thank you for the update :) Emma is giving my girl a run for her money on the brains category. We'll get there someday...

Since you didn't specify which pool, I guess I can't meet you there ;)
