Apologies and a sigh of relief

It's terrible that it's been so long since I updated the blog. We had some really busy, stressful days last week simply because we have five two-and-a-half-year-olds, and they are all acting their age, requiring lots of full-on parenting, and I was just too tired to do anything after their bedtime (except cry. I was pretty good at that one night.).

Seth's most recent "cold" never turned into anything remarkable, and none of the other kids got it. SO GRATEFUL!!!!

Thanks for praying. The kids are super fun and cute (this IS my favorite age!), albeit lots of work. We enjoy them greatly yet greatly enjoy putting them in bed and being done for the day. :) We do need prayer for wisdom, stamina, love and patience, as always.

Tonight Will and Marcie spontaneously told each other, "I love you!'

Will walked into the room, saw David and said, "Hey, big guy! What are you doing?"

They really are super fun. Seth is talking tons more now too.

Love and gratitude,

P.S. Seth's climbed up the growth chart, height-wise, (10th to 19th percentile) although he's fallen further down the chart weight-wise (5th to 3rd percentile). We're going to try a medication he used to be on to help his little appetite. I think he's just so busy he can't be bothered to eat unless he's really, really hungry. Thanks to all you who pray for him!

We attempted to get Mommy/Quint photos. Not super successful, but still pretty cute.  Left to right: David, Gracie, Marcie, Will, Seth. Gracie refused to sit on my lap. She wanted to be a big girl.

David loves this motorcycle. He only gets to play with it once a week, on Mondays. It's special!
