Isaac's Book

This is a book Isaac wrote at school today. He's in Kindergarten. And he loves Sonic. :) 

"This book belongs to Isaac Hall
Sonic X The Quest for the Emerald"

"I was going to the cave where the emerald was but my mom said there was a bear."

"I got to the cave where the emerald was. I saw the bear."

"He was chasing me but I was too fast for him"

"I stopped. He started to be nice."

"The bear was coming to me. He liked me. "I like you too" Sonic said. I hugged the bear but I realized the bear was a baby bear. The end."

"Find these books at sonic dot com.
1. Sonic and the lost emerald
2. Super Sonic
3. Sonic World"

Hello, is this thing on?  I haven't been on here in a while.  That seems to be the recurring theme for the past year (or 2 or 3).  But life goes on, the world keeps turning and my kids keep getting older.  Since I've last posted, Laney had a birthday (she's now 12 and is kind of a braniac), Mike and I celebrated another anniversary (13 years later and we're still in love), Chloe had a birthday (she's now 10 and is getting all, you know, hormonal.  Heaven help us all.), and I celebrated my 33rd birthday.  I remember being young and stupid and thinking that people in their 30's were old.  If I could go back in time and punch that little witch in the face, I would.

So, we're still here.  We're busy.  Mike is in school full time, on top of working full time, on top of being a husband and father full time. We're still exploring our options with adoption.  I just saw the profile of the sweetest little girl from China with Down Syndrome and just wish she were part of our family today. yesterday. 

 That's it, I guess.  My baby will be 4 years old in a couple weeks.  I get it, they grow.  If they don't, something's wrong.  But it doesn't mean I have to like it.  Sometimes I think he looks like a tiny toddler.  That is, until I see an actual toddler, and I realize that he's not even close.  He's like a foot taller than a toddler.  Oh well, when we're at home where there are no toddlers around, he's a tiny toddler. 

So that's where we are.  School.  Work.  Eating.  Sleeping.  Pretending to have toddlers.  Now you're all caught up.

She's 12. Twelve.

New hairs

Oh, and I started working out 5 days a week.  The body pump class is my fave!!  The boxing class is not my fave.  But the shower after a boxing class is just about as amazing as that first shower after giving birth.  fyi.

Summer Days

How we spend our hot Summer days...

The 2 big boys started t-ball and baseball this past Saturday!  It's the first time either one of them have been part of a team sport.  Needless to say, they loved it!  Elijah was a little behind the other players, since he's never played baseball before and he's doing coach pitch instead of t-ball, but he did great!  He even scored a run! :)   Watching 5 year olds play t-ball has to be one of the funniest things ever.

Picture time!

Omaha zoo and picture overload

A few weeks ago, we took a little 3 day trip to Omaha Nebraska, which is only about 3 hours away from us.  We'd heard their zoo is excellent (it is, by the way), so we found a nice hotel with a good indoor pool and off we went. 

It was cold the weekend we went, but most of their zoo's exhibits are indoors, so it wasn't bad at all.  We had a great little getaway and the kids a blast at the hotel pool!  They probably enjoyed that more than the zoo! 

The only pics I took were at the zoo, and I hadn't used my camera in a good 2 or 3 months, so you're about to see WAY too many pics from the Omaha zoo.

I honestly think God created some animals just so we could laugh at how ugly they are!

Elijah said this one was playing puppets. :)

The dude would not stop picking his nose!


These cute little lion cubs were only a few months old.
