Hello Bloggy Friends

I haven't had as much time as I'd like to post here. Though, I have been keeping up with my regular blog circuit, so I know what you've been up to ;-) I'm just hopping on to give a quick update.

Jonas has been doing so well lately. Operation Chubby Buns in in full swing. I am really hoping we post some high numbers when he returns to the doc on the 21st. Jonas also learned to crawl last week. He still prefers his army crawl on the wood floors but on carpet he'll crawl for quite a while. He's pulling up and cruising furniture as best he can with his twiggy little legs. He's too tall for his bouncer but he still needs some strength conditioning. His pampers pad a lot of his falls. It's pretty funny to watch his pull up and have his legs wobble all around. If you try to help he becomes indignant. He wants to run with his big sisters. I'm confident he'll be walking in no time. For now, I'm glad he's still limited in his mobility because he gets into everything!

The girls have been huge helpers while the kitchen is torn up. This morning Rienne washed dishes all by herself without being asked just to help mommy. What a loving girl we've got! Rory has been busy tinkering in the kitchen with us. She's a very hands on girl and mechanically inclined like her father. Ally is a WONDERFUL big sister. She's taken lots of responsibility for Jonas. She's extremely loving.

Today we interview at the private school we'll be sending the girls to next year. Yes, it's been a hard decision but we believe it's the best one. It's been very difficult to educate them sice Jonas came home. It's not at the level that it was before. Many distractions make it difficult. Also, I think Jonas will do well with some one on one time during his day.

I will absolutely miss the fun and joy of teaching the kids and knowing so intimately where they are at in their studies- their strengths/weaknesses. I'll miss the morning snuggles on the couch for story time. But I'm super excited for them to have a new experience and I know this school will provide for all their needs. With a great staff and many good friends attending they are sure to have a wonderful 2009-10 school year.

I feel your pain on the remodel - our kitchen took 1.5 years from start to finish but soooo worth it now! How awesome that you have such good little helpers.

Jonas is so cute - how about posting a video of that cute crawling before he takes off running!

Beza is so excited that Rory will be in her class next year. And likewise Natalie was sad :-)

Thanks for the update! It's hard to keep up with it all, isn't it? I sure wish we had the funds to place our kids in that school. I just don't know how we would swing it.
