Happy Birthday Christian and Maggie

Christian and Maggie are my September birthdays. Christian turned 5 on the 20th and Maggie will be 3 on the 26th. We had a party on Sunday with my Mom, Dad, sister, and brother. this year was extra special because Austin could join us too. One of the many perks of being back in Michigan.

The kids had a great birthday. We love them dearly and can't believe how big they are:) We had tacos, watched football, ate cake and ice cream and enjoyed watching them open gifts.

Unfortunately, Christian has poison ivy and it was really bad so we had to go to the Urgent Care after the party. Good thing we did because it was badly infected as you can see from his legs in this picture. Thanks to all the meds he is much better now:)

Ist day of school

Mikey, RJ, and Ben all started school last week. They are attending a very nice charter school in Michigan.

So far they are really enjoying school. it has been an adjustment getting up at 6:00am every morning so I can get them to school on time. There are no buses to their school. hey are also adjusting to homework after school. Other than that they like it a lot and Mike and I are pleased with the school. It has been such a blessing to have people we already know at the schoool.

As time goes on I will keep you all updated. Also Kolbe and Nate are not in yet so I am home schooling them for the time being.
