Some of my favorite pics from Florida. We had an incredible family vacation. Kids were unbelievably good. It was surprisingly very relaxing and enjoyable!! Sometimes vacations can just be a lot of work, but this one was so fun! We did have three adults, so the one-on-one ratio was nice. The plane rides were tough with Izzy. I think I'll drive next time ;) But that's my only complaint, so not too bad!! We are very thankful and will have memories for a lifetime.
I've kinda fallen off the bandwagon of blogging here... I apologize to my 5 or 6 readers ;)
We are having another! I'm sure all of you know that, but I had to keep our announcement quiet until I saw a friend two weeks ago that I haven't seen in two years. Wanted to tell her in person. I kept the secret and crossed my fingers and it worked! I got to tell her in person and she had no idea! Fun :)
But yes, we are breaking the mold a bit-- #4 is to arrive April 18. Easter weekend...yikes!
We are excited! I am feeling great! Addie and Eli are hoping for a boy! And Izzy has NO idea that this baby is going to flip her life upside down. So, I'm thankful we have a few more months! Quite a few... we will be ready :)
In other news... Addie is loving first grade! She adores her teacher and her friends. We had a terrific conference about her, which of course I cried through because I was so proud of her. She's still such a joy. Eli is a different kid this year! He's confident. He loves school. He has conversations with kids and adults! WHAT?! It's good. I think the world of him :) Isabelle has quite the personality. She takes most of my attention these days, but I'm loving the time she wants to be with me (which may be 24 hours a day...ahhhh!!!), cause I know she will grow out of that quickly. She's got a million words! And she loves her brother and sister. Brandt started a new job this week. Finally, he will be worked hard and a company is going to benefit from his brains! We are feeling blessed by this new opportunity and the Lord's timing in it all. All for now... :)
