I am sorry that I have been absent. Life is busy now with older 5 kids being in sports and such.
First! CONGRATULATIONS Sarah- Jean on your pregnancy!!!
We moved almost two years ago now and we are well settled into our new life. The house and the town feel like home now which is a great relief because I felt like such a stranger there. I think the kids did too.
Our oldest is graduating high school this year and is already signed up with the Navy. He will be in the IT field. He has a girlfriend ( who is an only child!) and he is on a rowing team.
Our second son Phillip, is in 10 grade. He loves to work in our machine shop, is building a chicken coop, is my go-to guy when I need something fixed or improved.
Tim is our third and he also does rowing. He is in 9th grade. He loves playing on his computer and avoiding chores
KArolina is in Middle School, she loves it. She did sideline and competitive cheerleading.
Julius is also in Middle School. He did basketball and had a great season. He finally got his dog he always wanted.
KAsia is our animal lover, she really has a way with them. She is in fourth grade.
Chloe is in second grade. She loves baby dolls, reading and is playing piano a little. She gets along with GAbby the most.
Gabby is in first grade. Learning was hard for her and she is receiving help at school, she has been my happy-go-lucky girl who could spend hours playing BArbies ( but not in a "glamour lifestyle" way, but she would make them a family and often play "poor Barbies").
Sebastian just turned 5 and is in preschool. He loves it and can't wait for KDG. he loves duplo blocks, crafts, songs... He is really calm and understanding, it's almost strange.
Nicholas is 2 and he is a tornado. He will undo any cleaning done in the house, in seconds. He loves duplo blocks, trains, cars and anything messy
We now have a yellow lab Howie who is 1 year old
Winter was hard, even with us escaping some of it by going on a road trip to California. I have never experienced such cold! I am so looking forward to spring and summer. I want to plant flowers and a garden, i want to be outside!
I will post a link to my Flickr, hopefully it will work since there are too many photos to post.
