We have had so much going on in the last couple of weeks.
First of all, we have all been a little under the weather and still are. We just keep passing it around. Second, Frank was in India for a week and that kept me busy with the kiddos. Lastly and most important, my sweet baby girl had her 4th birthday! I can't believe she is already four. She is growing up so fast and she is so smart. We plan to have her birthday party this weekend complete with a bounce house and she can't wait!
Anyway, I have to get my pictures in order and I will post them asap.

All the backyard fun you and the kiddos can handle. We really enjoyed the time with the Gerwick's. As you can see from the video below, "Mr. Billy" as he is affectioinately called, enjoyed spinning the kids around and around.
We all tried it, as the adults joined in the fun of the "2 year old spins". Kathy spins and dances with Kyla and Mr. Billy spins Grayson.
However, I am so glad the Gerwick's are able to start getting their lives back to normal.
I miss you guys and I look forward (hopefully) to a visit in October.

We had so much fun at the Prosper bounce house today. We are finding all kinds of fun things to do with all of the kids, and this one was definitely a favorite! As you can see, Kyla is really good about helping her little brother when he needs help climbing up on things. Sweet girl! Frank was also having a good time on the slides. It was a great time!
I know they are under a lot of stress just trying to figure everything out, so we are so happy to be able to alleviate some of this stress by welcoming them with open arms for however long they need it. We are very blessed to be able to help out and to have our great new house that has enough space to accomodate 4 adults and 5 young children comfortably.
I am actually very excited to have Tanni here to keep me company during the day and to have someone to give a look and take a deep breath with when our kiddos are pushing us over the edge. I have to say, the weather has cooperated so nicely. When you are trying to keep 5 kids occupied, it helps to have great park/playground weather.
Anyway, to sum it all up, we love the Gerwick family dearly, and are so happy to have friends that feel comfortable enough with us to ask with no reserve to come stay with us for however long they need it.

I know you probably cannot tell, but they are well equipped with a flashlight, a pink cell phone on the windowsill and we cannot forget Kyla's babies in their pack-n-play right beside her.
You've got to love a child's imagination!!

However, we have realized as of today that Ethan is not going to be our little artist.
I went to pick him up from class today and when I looked down at his little bin where they usually put the days work and art projects I saw a bright piece of paper sitting in front of his bin.
I reached down with excitement thinking this was his first piece of artwork from school and much to my surprise after picking is up, IT WAS BLANK! Come to find out our little one doesn't like to get his hands dirty. So much for our 1st year art portfolio! :-)
Oh well, hopefully he will adjust and we may see some fun stuff in the future.
I have to say, the break two days a week is really nice. It takes some time to get adjusted to having so much time all to myself. It is truly a blessing to be able to send the kids to such a great school where you feel comfortable leaving them, knowing they are well taken care of and loved by their great teachers.
