Swimming Lessons

Sydney and Austin enjoyed daily swimming lessons last week. Although they are not swimming on their own yet, they are both more confident than when we began! And what did Camryn do during these daily lessons? Why work on her double chin of course! Our little 5lb. baby is now 8lbs.

Preschool Graduation

Sydney had preschool graduation on May 22nd. She has been in a 4 year old class this year even though she still has another year till she startes kindergarden (long story).
Since Camryn was only 4 days old, Mom was not able to go. Sydney had a lot of other support from both grandmas, Aunt Stephanie, Celine, Austin and Dad.

Welcome Home Jake!

We returned home on Monday from a fabulous trip to Denver. Our nephew Jake returned on June 11 from Seoul, Korea. Greg drove out with Sydney and Austin, while Camryn and
I flew. Thankfully Hailey was willing to help on the drive out and Grandma Joan drove back with him.

We had a great time hearing mission stories, going to the zoo, gathering for a picnic, attending church for the homecoming talk and an amazing brunch afterward. In fact, I think we were having so much fun that we did not take a single picture!

Our 3 Ring Circus

So 2 weeks into life with 3 children has sure been
fun! Amazingly enough Sydney and Austin are really enjoying their new little sister. I expected there to be much more jealousy, but not so much. There have, however, been bouts of acting out and other issues to deal with. Thankfully Greg has had 2 weeks of paternity leave and we had my mom here for the first 5 days after coming home from the hospital.
This week will be the true test of how I survive the "3 Ring Circus". Greg is leaving tomorrow on a business trip to NYC until Friday night and I will be left to manage alone. With that in mind, I made sure to get all my grocery shopping, errands and other misc things done yesterday that would be difficult to do alone with all 3 kids. Ready or not, here we go!
