My little Graduate!

Cali has graduated from Kindergarten and is quite proud of it!  She has really grown so much this year as she learned how to read and write paragraphs all by herself!  Her teacher told me at graduation today that  the superintendent came to their class and she had to show off Cali's writing to her. Cali wants to be an author and I think she would be a great one!  We are so proud of our Cali girl!
There are two weeks left here in Michigan and I am started to feel the pressure of moving.  There is so much to do and yet and I don't even feel that stressed about it yet.  I can't quite grasp this big change that will soon be here.  We have been enjoying swimming lately as well.  Adam had his first drowning experience.  My friend Heather is a faster swimmer than I and so I yelled her name really loud and she swam in and saved my sweet 2 year old that jumped right in the pool with out his floaties. Thanks Heather!

Maylee is 5months!

Yaah! I am so happy that Maylee is on a good schedule.  She is sleeping from 7:30 to 7:30all night.  I feed her twice in the night but then she goes right back to sleep.  It's so nice. I hope it stays that way.  Maylee is so smiley now and giggles when she sees her sibblings walking by, its so cute!

 Scotty gave me these on our Anniversary, he is so romantical!

A bit silly and a lot happy.....

 Isaac and his friend Kaden are super silly together, but I am glad that he can be that way with someone who can handle Isaac's goofiness!

What's happenin in May?

 Well, for starters, these two cute boys sure keep me busy.  I can hardly catch up to where they go, and what they get into.  Adam lately has shown me that he has a mind of his own.

Eight weeks and counting...........

Scotty took the boys outside to play in the woods. Don't know if Adam will ever stop his cheesy smile.

One family night, waiting for their pudding!

Catching up..!.....

Lot's of events have occurred and I am finally getting around to blogging about them.  First of all  the  Easter  Activity was so much fun for the kids to find the eggs and do crafts and games at the church!

 Then Cali's 6th birthday party was so much fun coming up with fun games for the girls to play!
Making necklaces was her favorite!

Cali is six going on sixteen.  I am reminded every day that she knows a lot more than I think. She listens to everything I say and is not afraid to tell me what she is thinking.  It's so adorable that she wants to be an author when she grows up and she writes a new story every week.  I love how independent she is and that she is really shining in school! We love our Cali girl.
 Isaac is getting so big now too! I can't believe how much he has grown. He loves to talk and talk and talk my ear off, but I am just so happy at how well he is speaking now. We sure love his smiles and laughter and how he loves to make us laugh.

Then we have sweet Adam that loves to get into anything and everything.  This is the face he makes when I say to smile!  Well, I think he was tired of me asking him to smile so maybe he was a bit frustrated too. Hee Hee.

And finally there is Maylee at 3months!  She is so much fun and lovable. The kids can not get enough hugs and kisses from her.  She is the star of our family right now and loved by many!  
 She is always looking around trying to find out what her siblings are up to.  She is sleeping most of the night now, too, hooray! We love you Maylee!

Cali's birthday!

Cali is six and becoming so responsible and smart!  She is really enjoying kindergarden this year and has a great teacher as well!  Her favorites are: Taco soup, birthday cake ice cream, recess, gym class, gold and silver, and playing with her friends.  She is really excited for her friend party coming up and spring break this week!  She loves fashion still and getting new clothes is a real treat.  We love her so much!

 Cali was so sweet and made me a salad for lunch one day, all by herself!

Isaac all ready for snowplay!

He will play right out front where I can see him, and I don't have to go out and freeze!

Isaac is very creative and likes to cut and make puppets and dinosaurs, but a couple of days ago he decided to be really creative and cut his own hair. I knew one of my kids would do this someday.

I love watching how sweet Adam is with Maylee, it's so precious.

 Smiles every morning!

Maylee is seven weeks!

I love how Maylee is sleeping more at night, it's like I can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  She is doing well and smiling now! She smiles at all her sister and brothers too! It's so sweet to watch our family grow.

Scotty is now back from Africa.  We are so happy to have him in our home again, it's been two and a half weeks. He was able to go on an African Safari and see the oceanside view in Cape Town.
Poor Isaac was in tears one day saying he missed Daddy, and Cali had drawn a picture at school with her and Daddy, saying she missed him too. We all missed him a lot!  Now that he's back, we are excited to have our house planned out in Arizona!  Four more months and counting!
