Life the past few months has been BUSY!
Here are some updates on the kids:
Lily: Lily is getting to be such a big girl! She is finishing up her last year of preschool and is very excited about starting kindergarten in the fall. She lost her first tooth a couple of months ago and her new "grown-up" tooth is starting to come in. She learned how to tie her own shoes. She is a master on her "two wheeler" and absolutely loves to ride her bike. She is working on her reading (and is doing a great job!), writing and math. She is a big helper and takes so much pride knowing that she is helping us and making us happy. She is about to take her first school field trip to the zoo. She is so excited to ride on a school bus for the first time and to go on the field trip with her friends. And I am so excited for her- I know she will have so much fun!
Jonah: Jonah is about to turn 4! I can't believe it! I am planning his party, which is going to be fire truck theme (I'll post more on that later). His last week of his first year of preschool is this week. Jonah is getting so big! He is quickly catching up to Lily in weight and height. It won't be long before he is bigger than her! He does not seem to be too into sports, but is showing much interest in music. I think that he will be the musical one in our family. He finally figured out pedaling and bought himself, with his own money, a cool little bike that he adores. He is also pretty obsessed with swinging and would swing all day long if I would push him. He needs to learn how to pump, then he can swing all day!
Kate: Kate has been such a trooper the last few months. She has been through a lot with everything that has been going on with her health, but she is handling it well. She had another episode last weekend, so I had to take her to the ER to get all of the blood work done. That was a tough morning, for her and for me. We found out that there are some abnormalities in her blood, which means another trip to Boston to meet with a specialist. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. I'll keep you updated once we know more. Other than all of that, Kate is doing great. She is a feisty little girl and is just the cutest little thing you've ever seen.
We have been busy working on the house, putting in the landscaping, trying to get the grass to grow, rebuilding the front steps, building our garden (!!!), and now building our new shed. The house is really looking great from the outside. Such a huge difference from just over a year ago! Last weekend we celebrated living in the house for 1 year.
The next month or so is filled with birthday parties (we have 3 this weekend!), graduations, and graduation parties. Maybe in July things will slow down?

Gorgeous, right? I love where we live!
