A Few More Pics from July

I get the kids pictures done every 6 months or so. Here is the most recent batch, from mid-July:

We're all done with swim lessons. Eric came REALLY close to swimming by himself this summer. He can jump into the water and move himself forward, he just can't quite keep his head up long enough to get air and keep going for an extended period of time. Definitely next year.

Now the boys are taking gymnastics and the girls have chosen ballet. Everyone is enjoying their classes, and Eric is having a good time in his Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program. Elliot and I are planting a butterfly garden in our front yard and (slowly) decorating our new home. Life is good.

Finally, An Update!

Well, we made it. We're all moved in to our new house and our house in Tallahassee has been updated (painted, new flooring, etc.) and we have renters. Let me tell you, moving with four cats and four small kids was CRAAAAAAAZY. But it was definitely worth it. Our new house is bigger, nicer, in a better neighborhood with better schools, and we're close to family. The kids are very happy in their new home. So are Elliot and I.

I owe everybody some pictures. Here's one from April, when the kids went to Eric and Kiki's biological sister's birthday party:

This one's from May, before we moved:

The kids started their annual summer swim lessons this June, after we moved. Here they are in their grandparents' pool:

The kids won't all fit in the bathtub together for much longer. Here they are on the 4th of July, getting ready to go to a party. I think this is my favorite picture of them ever:

Picture of the Kids from March 2013

In March we had a group birthday party for Eric, Kiki, and Elise. Here is a picture from the party, including Clark and two of their cousins. Funny faces!

Happy birthdays to my babies!

*** Also, house update: We've closed on our new house! Yay! We're so excited to be moving soon!***

A Picture of the Kids from February 2013

I think we were at the mall in this picture. Notice the lack of a stroller. But also notice how nicely they are all sitting. We have some really, really good kids!

Update and an Old Picture

Hello, again! We're still as busy as can be. We've had the usual round of wintertime kiddie sicknesses circulate through our house, but overall everyone is doing well. And speaking of houses, we're still moving forward with purchasing a new house closer to our family and old friends. I've been slowly packing and trying to cull through our toys and clothing. We're so excited for the upcoming move!

Here is an old picture of all of the kids. It's from sometime in January of this year, but I'm not sure of the exact date. We took the kids to a local museum, and here they are digging for fossils. They were mostly just excited to put on the protective eye-wear.

Been So Busy!

Wow. Four toddlers sure keep a mommy busy!

Been a while since I posted. I'm still taking lots of pictures of the kids, I just have no time to put them online. I've been doing some work from home lately and that takes up a lot of my free time. Also, Elliot and I are in the process of buying a house, so that's been a hectic and very time consuming process.

Things are going very well for us. The kids are all healthy and beautiful and smart and funny, like always. I'll try to give a more thorough update later, and post some pictures, too.

We love you!
