Family Update

What can I say- we are so Blessed!

Madelynn is doing so well reading. The books get harder and harder, and she breezes through them.  She does so well at sounding out the words she doesn't recognize, and she loves to read to her sisters (who love to hear her read.)

Annie loves to sing and dance. She starts dance classes today with Madelynn and they both are really looking forward to it.  Annie is our little mommy. She helps me with all the housework, and makes sure Joy and Lydia are happy.

Joy is as active as ever. She is talking so well, and really knows how to let us what she wants.  She works hard at keeping up with her older sisters and is very proud of her great climbing skills. :)

Lydia is rolling very well now. She can roll both directions and loves laughing at her sisters.  She likes to be high up so she can see everything that's going on.

We are really enjoying our summer in our new home (since we got the better patio.)  We were surprised with a wonderful grapevine that has provided many great snacks. The grapes are very sweet and there are so many of them!  If you are wanting any, please come and get them! :)

The switch to cloth napkins and cloth diapers is going so well! I'm still working on a routine when traveling, but still am amazed at how easy it is at home (don't know why I didn't start sooner!)

I hope everyone is having as great a summer as we are!


  1. I can't wait to see everyone next week!! They are all growing up so fast! It sounds like Madelynn and Annie are a big help to you with reading to the younger ones and cleaning up. Maybe they can give my girls some pointers while we are there. :) If there are still grapes next week, I would love to try some! I don't think I've ever had grapes that fresh before. See you soon!

  2. Sounds like a really pleasant family summer!
