Does is make sense to back track over the past 6 months? Probably not. Maybe just the highlights...
We did have a great Christmas. We decided that instead of buying "things" for the big kids, we would plan for a special activity each month this year. We are at the point where time together is more important to us than having more stuff around the house. So far the kids and dad have gone to Funset Blvd. and also The Fire to create their own ceramic master pieces! We missed sledding in January because of icy weather, but that's okay. This month we will spend as evening at Tundra Lodge's water park in Green Bay. SO looking forward to the bathing suit! :)
Clara and Tommy each had a birthday, she is 11 and he is now 10. I cannot believe how time has flown by. Tom also had a birthday- but once he crossed that line of 40 he has quit talking about his birthday!
Baby Drew spent 2 days in the hospital due to some random virus that made it difficult for him to get enough oxygen while sleeping. He thought is was great- lots of extra attention. I almost had a meltdown (more than once), but we made it through and Drew is doing fantastic.
Emma and Drew continue to grow and change and amaze us daily. Emma talks non-stop (no, SERIOUSLY... Non-stop!), and Drew wanted to be walking yesterday. He works so hard to keep up with Emma and she works equally as hard to get herself and her things- mostly her things- away from him. She has Drew-dar, she can tell if he is within 2 feet of her and she will panic, gather up her toys. and move elsewhere while yelling at me to, "take Baby Drew somewhere else!".
We did have a wonderful Easter even though Emma got totally hyped up on sugar- my fault, not hers! The kids helped with Easter eggs and with a wonderful breakfast that Emma didn't eat because her tummy was full of marshmallow chicks and kisses. She did, however, eat three rolls at dinner ("Mommy, I LOVE roll!").
Up next is Spring Break with the little ones at home then Tom leaves for Vancouver B.C. for several days. There is always something going on around here, and I love it!
I could never answer to a whistle.
