A Little of Everyone

A few weeks ago I left Joseph at home with Sophie and Avery and traveled with William for his first plane ride ever. Thank goodness he did pretty well.

We went to Utah to be with my family as my sister Julie went for her first time through the temple.

She is going to be married this summer to a great guy, Leo, and since she is the last of my siblings to be able to go through the temple, my parents wanted all their kids there for this special event.

I truly wish Joseph and my girls could have also come, as well as Peter's family. They were greatly missed. But it was an awesome experience to be there with all these wonderful people, and I'm just excited for the wedding this summer in which we all will be there together!

I missed both my girls, including this little Peanut and all her antics. She's a funny, independent, spit-fire of a 2-year old and I love her. (Those are hair bands on her fingers, fyi.)

Alright, who puts rubber bands on this boy's thighs and wrists every night?

Somebody's a little milk drunk I think.

Sophie rode in her school's bike-a-thon a couple weeks ago. She's riding Avery's bike here because she's got a better handle on it than her big one, and she rode very cautiously. Sophie likes preschool a lot and has had a fun year. We've recently decided to let her do one more year of it instead of sending her to Kindergarten at the age of 4 (though it was not an easy decision), and she's excited to go another year.

William is starting to look more like his daddy every day. We have two models of children we've decided. William and Avery fall into one model with Joseph, and Sophie's in my model.

See what I mean? A lot of it is the eyes. :)

That is so great for your family.

Lucy's birthday is in November. She is only 3 and people are already telling me that I should push to let her start school when she's 4. I have pretty strong opinions on this and I feel perfectly happy to let her have one more year with us before she goes to school. I have been surprised how torn I have still felt by all of it though.

Definitely see the two models. William is growing & changing so much. I guess babies do that right?

yes, I was going to say the same thing. Will looks just like Avery and Joseph. (: Sophie definitely looks like you! (:

SO EXCITED for Julie! That's awesome! I'd like to make it to the reception if I can.
