An Update on Us

Every so often I like to give a little update on what has been going on around our home. I get so caught up posting about crafts and projects that sometimes I forget about all the other events going on with each of us. So here is a quick update on the kids.

Jake It has been a whole week now and we have no new breaks. In case you haven't heard, he has broken both his hands. He broke his left hand in September and while still in the cast broke his right hand last week. For one day he had both hands wrapped up. We went and saw the Orthopedic Dr. last week and his left hand was healed enough to remove the cast. The right hand has a buckle fracture so they gave us the option to either put a cast on it or make a removable splint. Jake opted for the removable splint which has been wonderful. Mostly because he can take it off to shower and we don't have to mess with wrapping it up.

So, needless to say he is out of football. His last game of the season is tonight. He also is quitting band at the end of the quarter. He has been wanting to do this since the beginning of the year and as much as Will and I have tried to talk him out of it, he really just doesn't enjoy it. Other than his injuries he is doing really well. He is now taller than me and weighs almost as much!

He is doing pretty well. He is bored to death at school because he says it is too easy. Here is a picture of his latest project. A Ziggurat.He missed a couple days of school due to a fever and cough but has since recovered. He is really liking percussion in band and just got some new music to practice so it has been a little noisy around here. He is still debating whether he is going to play basketball this Winter. I am not pushing it, I figured I will let him make his own decision this year.

Brodie Brodie is at a really easy stage right now. He is so laid back and easy going. He loves to do "projects" and as soon as we are finished wants to know whats next. He went in for his 4 year well child check the other day and weighed in at 39 pounds. He is in the 95th% for height and 70th% for weight. He is doing great.

Drew Oh Drew. I never what the day holds with Drew. He is my little firework right now. We have entered the world of terrible 3s and he isn't even 3 yet! He is very determined, stubborn, smart little boy. He dresses himself, buckles himself in his carseat and tries his hardest to do everything he sees his older brothers doing. He just started potty training himself, so I am pretty excited about that.

That's the kids in a nutshell. Will and I are doing great. Will still has a job thankfully. He is enjoying his new Jeep and we got the old Saturn sold after sitting at the end of the driveway for only 3 days. We have lots of projects to get done before Winter hits. I am afraid some of them will have to wait till Spring though. Winter will be here before we know it.
