Here for us... well, life doesn't stop, now does it? We have a 6 month-old, a 1.5 year-old, and a 3, 4, and 5 year-old. We have started the journey of homeschooling and we LOVE every minute of it! My daughter loves being able to grow in her understanding at her pace, which I discovered quickly is much faster than anything the kindergarten programs out there! T-man and Monkey love doing homeschool preschool, and my littles, well they enjoy playing with a box full of toys for class time. Balancing life has been quite the adventure as we work hard to maintain sanity of home life, work lives, volunteering and helping our parish, plus two awesome Catholic homeschool co-ops in the area. Life never settles by the waysides in our house. But what can I say, we will enjoy the memories of summer and think about them especially as it gets cooler and colder here in MN!

Well, the past few months have definitely slipped passed me. Let's see, highlight reel....
- after extensive testing, T-man and Monkey are cleared from the autism spectrum. Both boys really enjoyed the four weeks of testing at the 'big kid school'. T-man is above average on memory and cognitive skills testing. Meanwhile, Monkey will be getting some specialized one-on-one time for his speech for pronunciation.
- Bumblebee has been taking weekly swim lessons, which she loves and seems to think she is an Olympic athlete with her kicking! It's too cute! But classes are wrapping up in a few weeks, so she is getting sad knowing it won't be a weekly swim date, which is alright since.....
- Soccer starts soon! Both Bumblebee and T-man will be on a team together, which is extra nice for traveling purposes! Plus, they have been excited to play since the snow started melting last week!
- Our "baby" turned one on Saturday... Where did the time go? He still acts like a baby regardless, which is fine by me at times, except for when I need my arms since he likes his perch on my hip compared to being stuck on the floor...
-Lastly, our newest blessing is due to come out any time now! We are quite excited to welcome a sister for Bumble! As she has pointed out, we need more pink in this house of little men.

Why? Well at this moment, I have three sleeping boys and an almost sleeping daughter, so I clicked some links and found this INCREDIBLE short video about adoption. As many of you might know, or maybe you don't know, SuperHubby and I are truly open to God's love through having a large family. And while we are constantly growing with our tribe, lots of news to follow, we also look at how God can multiply our love through other outlets like family volunteering, quality time with each child, and hey even the possibility of adoption :)
So without any further anticipation, I encourage you to watch this short video and then spread it to the world!!! Facebook it, tweet it, email your family and friends, everything you can to share this awesome family's video.
Since i don't know how to use this new blog set up stuff... go here I promise it's not some weird site. it's so incredible.. and once SuperHubby comes home, maybe I can get him to fix this :)

Bumblebee had wanted to cut her hair for a while now... So we finally said yes since it was getting pretty unmanageable. I think it was harder for us as parents to say goodbye to the hair she had since birth... We might have even shed some tears as they snipped her strands.
12 inches were donated to locks of love and our princess was so pleased when we told her she was making someone happy who was sick. She said she was just like Rapunzel with her magic hair.. Oh Disney Tangled movie!
Oh yes and they put glitter in her hair afterwards... The joy of glitter is that it stays with you for weeks! B loved it though...
