Fall is Here

My favorite time of year…the change from summer to fall.  Cool, brisk mornings, warm afternoons.  Ah…  I need a hammock in the backyard (and some time to lay in it 🙂  ).

The kids are settling into the crazy schedule.  We are surviving… 
Ha!  I'm watching a naked little boy make his way to the potty.  Micah is doing well with pottying on the potty.  We have to be very diligent though about taking him…he doesn't always tell us. 
Blake is busy with Church, FCA, Band, 4H and Facebook.  Hannah is involved in several things at Church, Band and excelling in her studies.  Bethany and Seth are still kids who just like to play.  🙂  I miss those days with Blake and Hannah.  The good thing is that the three little guys will probably always like to play and be content to be at home…
Eli is going to and endocrinologist this morning to see what we can do for him.  He's not growing at all (in the last 18 months or more) and he's very lethargic.  His blood count is still good, so it's something else.  This is about the last place we can go so hopefully he'll be able to help.  It's like he's stuck at age 2 and can't move forward.  Weird.
Matthew is doing great.  He's coming out of his shell.  He's babbling (yeah, that's like a baby, but when we got him he made no sounds except crying).  He spoke a few days ago at school and said "I want." We didn't hear it but the teacher were so excited!
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
