to post! (from a certain someone...you know who you are:)) No blogging has occurred recently because of one main activity: WALKING! Walking to dance, to Latin, to the library, to choir. You get the idea, our legs have been mobile! Actually, it has been great; good exercise, beautiful weather (with the exception of yesterday when we hitched a ride to Girl Scouts with friends) Really, I enjoy it. The only trouble is we are all exhausted by the end of the day. Which means we all (including myself) are asleep by 8:30. I generally wake up around 9:30, back aching from being in the toddler bed and in a fog. I am too sleepy to DO anything and if I go back to sleep in my own bed then I wake up around 2AM and can't sleep. So usually I stare at the computer. Blogs, videos, emails, knitting patterns; not really coherent enough to put together a blog post or even upload pictures.
However, here is my attempt, rambly as it may be, to put up a few pictures and tell y'all what we've been up to. Without further ado:
A picture of Ella that I like because her eyes look so blue. This was taken today before her last choir practice. I got kind of emotional at her choir rehearsal today. Luci gave her a gift and had all the kids say something about Ella that they liked. She will be singing for the last time on Sunday. (last time in the choir at St. Patrick's...I hope she never stops singing)
Gabriel seems to have grown a bit since last winter:
Joshua working on a spear today. He has been soaking up this glorious weather. Outside from morning till night. Mostly playing soccer, basketball, and a new game he learned called 500. Gabriel follows his big brother around everywhere.
The two brothers again, this time in a band. I think that's pomegranate juice all over Gabriel's face.
