Obadiah is 5 years old!!!

I realized this morning that for the first time since Micah was born, we don't have a little boy under 5 years old in our house. Weird.

I can't believe my little guy is so big. He is 100% ready to start kindergarten, at least in motivation.

Genna's words

Genna's first word was "Momma." She also could say "Dada" and "baba" but mostly just babbling. She also learned to say "uh-oh" and it was the cutest thing ever, but she stopped saying it after a while and worked on other things. "No" was another word in her vocabulary. But in the past few days she has added the following important words to her vocabulary.



Along with the word "no" she hasn't stopped practicing all three, and she has demonstrated that she knows exactly what they mean. Not.even.kidding. For example, she will do something she isn't supposed to do, then look up at me and say, "Stop," before I can.

We sure do have our work cut out for us!

Micah will be graduating in May. I asked him months ago if he would like to join our homeschool association's graduation ceremony and to my dismay he said no. A week ago we got a "last chance" email and I asked him again. I guess this time nagging paid off--he said yes. Part of the preparation that we need to do now is to gather 12 photos for a slideshow. As Micah and I went through photos and "argued" about which ones to include, I came up with a brilliant idea. It didn't seem to please Micah for the graduation slideshow, so I decided it would work very well as a blog post. And here it is...

Eden has another birthday!

T minus 1 year until she is a legal adult. One year until she graduates high school. One year until she earns her AA degree (a 2-year college degree). Unbelievable.
