Long Time

So I know it's been a really long time since I posted but work, kids, college age kids and just day to day life is keeping me busy. I also am having photo challenges so feel bad about not posting photos at the same time. However, I'm past that now and thought I'd post a quick update on the girls:

Jayden: The oldest little princess in my house started 2nd grade and is loving it. She has a great teacher and has finally managed to crack the code to reading. Yeah!! She still has to struggle through it a bit but definitely in a better place. She also managed to lose all a lot of teeth and both the process, timing and now gaping holes in her mouth are pretty funny. Jayden also played soccer again this fall and had a ball. That girl has wheels on her feet and can really move. Seems I had to go outside the gene pool to get speed in my family. :)

Rowan: My wild child is adapting well and is definitely the one to push the limits more than the others. She also loves her preschool classroom at KinderCare. She's turning into a real card and is all about jumping from one piece of furniture to another in my house....over and over and over again. She's lucky I'm one of those mom's that doesn't care too much about jumping on the furniture.

Riley: This child is mom's cuddle bug and likes to attach herself to my hip if I'm sitting or standing. She's also and recently managed to put a popcorn kernel up her nose. When asked how it got there, her reply was "Momma, it jumped there." Yeah right....I didn't believe it either. Riley will be starting speech therapy soon. She turns K's and C's into T's most of the time and so I want to be ahead of this before Kindergarten.

The older girls are doing well and in college. I can't believe my oldest is a junior this year.

I feel so blessed to have been given the privilege of parenting these girls.

I promise to post photos soon. The girls have incredibly cute Halloween photos, courtesy of big sister Devin, and now I just have to figure out how to do the download thing.

Hope everyone is well.
