News and Updates

Well, the latest on the kids:

Collin is way into whatever movie or book he discovers at the library. That kid has an amazing memory. He retains everything he sees, hears, or watches. He baffles me. He gave my mom almost a word for word play by play of the rodeo Sat. He loves for us to read to him and absorbs everything. He'll be 5 this fall, but won't go to kindergarten till next year. He loves music and pretending.

Isabel is a rare beauty, I wonder if every mommy thinks their girls are so gorgeous! She has gained quite a vocabulary, and jabbers about everything. She is such a detail girl, and will always be the first to notice things and is a great listener...not being sarcastic. She is the first to run to do something for me when I ask a favor. She is so good to her brothers, truly a princess. She loves to sing and play in the tub, sometimes at the same time. She is mommy's little helper: cooking, dishes, sweeping, vacuuming, laundry, you name it, she's on the job!

Gavin is growing up way too fast! He has been sitting and crawling for a few months now...and today he stood up for a full 10-15 seconds. He sort of lowered himself to the ground as if to say, "hey, I didn't really mean to do that, but boy am I cool"! He is already into drawers and cupboards....woah watch out! He also acquired his first tooth last week, which is way earlier than my other two kids. He just wants to beat them at everything I guess. He is so happy and so fun.

I don't know why, but to me Sleepy Pics are SOOO Cute!

Fun at the Park!

Sleeping Beauties

More goats, couldn't resist

These were just to cute to skip. Out in the "wild wild west" as my kids would say. They had so much fun chasing all those goats around!

Boot Scoot Boogie!

We went to see my brother-in-law's goats near our house and the kids had a blast chasing the "kids". Gavin thought the grass tasted great, and Collin and Isabel were delighted to have their cowboy boots on for the rodeo later.

So Behind!

I won't attempt to write a lot tonight. I'm just going to update with pictures mostly.
