2012 - The Life I've been Given

Greetings Friends,

Obviously it has been a long long time since I have updated this blog, and for that I apologize. Most of you know that once children come around, life can be very busy, and with work, dreaming, and family I have neglected this blog!

Family - The kids are doing well, and school is just around the corner. Ella is going into third grade. She is doing so well in school, she loves to read, imagine, and also, in her 3rd year of piano, which is laying a great foundation for not only music in her life, but also the repetition of life, work and activities that she wants to better herself in. The other day she was practicing, and no joke, I thought it sounded amazing, it was like when you don't see someone for a year, and they grow, or get older. If you were with that person, you wouldn't really notice near as much, but since it came out of the blue for me, it was like, holy cow Ella, was that you playing the piano?!?!
Sophia is starting school as well, she will be going all day for the first time. I am excited and nervous for her. I am looking forward to her growing in imagination, and wonder. I can't wait for her to ask me, or mom some questions that she has. Sophia loves spending time with her sister, and often pouts if her sister does not want to play with her. I think she will also begin to start piano soon as well.
Levi is getting big. Speaking in sentences, and acting like a boy. He loves his mother very much. He tells it to her, and often reminds me that I should as well. I think that in becoming a man, having a son is the last step as far as growth comes, and as your son gets older, you too learn different ways of becoming a better man.
The kids love singing songs to Jesus in the car rides. They love to jump on their trampoline, and play with their dog and cat.
Red is doing well. She has been working so much this month because of the great promotion they are doing at JCPennys. They have been giving away free hair cuts for children, and she has been working over time! She has been handling the remodel in our house very well, considering the timeline we are on. I think though her patience will be wearing thin.
