The latest updates

I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything. We’ve been pretty busy between work, school, and home.

Ceili Fey is enjoying middle school. She signed on for the school paper and was hoping to get involved with student council as well. She is discovering that middle school requires more attention to detail as well as more work!

Noah is doing well in kindergarten. While the first day was a little rough, he seems to love it now. He’s got several little girls that seem enamored with him – and, quite possibly, he with them. Unfortunately, starting school hasn’t decreased the whining in the least.

Henry is doing a bit better in new situations. It helps if he has something he can control about the situation. For instance, if we go out for supper with others, we let him pick where he will sit and who will sit next to and across from him. This has greatly eliminated some of the hiding under the table and quivering for the duration of the meal.

Calvin is one hard-headed little dude. He doesn’t give up and he certainly doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s also pretty funny. Especially when he tries to say things like “Uh-oh, Spaghetti-Os” or people’s names. Unfortunately he’s still not into the idea of sleeping away from mama, which is incredibly frustrating.
