Busy, busy, busy!

You may be wondering where we've been! We've had a busy month and a half! Dave is super busy at work and working a lot of nights so we've missed him! He's also had a few meetings with church as well. We were hoping to go to Great Wolf Lodge this coming week for my birthday (and David's off for a few days from school), but alas that is not to be. Dave is just too busy at work. He is the best and we love him so for how hard he works for us.

David's been busy at school. They just had their 100 day celebration (pic to follow) and David made a special project for it and they had lots of fun treats and activities to celebrate their 100th day. David also has been busy making Valentine's day cards for his classmates. He took them in this week to "mail" them in their mail boxes. So cute! David has also been busy swimming and playing basketball. He is a great swimmer and can now swim two lengths of the pool! He has been working hard. His rotary breathing is improving tremendously too. He loves it! He also is loving his second season of basketball and scored in his last game! He is very good at dribbling and he wants to find more time to practice. :) In April, he starts soccer and tee-ball so he is looking forward to that too.

Owen has been busy doing fun preschool projects at home with Mommy and he also has been swimming. He is getting so brave and jumps off the side all by himself! He loves his swimming and has made a few little friends there too. He also loves going to the Y for gym time every Tuesday and also going to his childcare class while I work out. He is always telling me about the friends he is making. :) He also loves it when David gets home from school. He runs up to him and gives him a big hug every day. He really does love his big brother (well...most of the time!). :)

Liam is getting bigger each day. I can't believe that he will be two in April! How did my baby grow up so fast?!? He is all boy and quite a crazy kid. He loves, loves, loves to be outside and begs me to take him out every day. When we go to the park, he loves to run around and slide down all the slides. He gives me a heart attack pretty much every time because he has no fear and no realization that he is not as big as his brothers! He just climbs up and down and is a little monkey. He also loves the gym time at the Y on Tuesdays and loves to play with any ball of any kind. He is talking and communicating more and more too. He's a little toddler now and not a baby anymore. :( He also loves to wrestle with his Daddy and brothers.

I have been busy taking the kids to and from all of their activities, trying to organize my home little by little, running and working out and trying to stay sane with the craziness of our schedules! I am tired, but it's all worth it! We are hoping to get some quality family time over the next few weeks. And we are all looking forward to David having 4 days off from school starting this week!!! Yippee!
