It's been so long.  My kids are getting so huge! So here's some pictures of them and what we've been doing.  I tried to put some new ones that didn't appear in other social media, but those are some of the best ones anyway.  

Kindergarten is in full swing! Savannah had trying first few weeks, but now she loves it.  She starts her day there at 8:25, and gets to come home at 3:20.  They have a little rest time in the afternoon, but she's pretty busy all day.  We are loving how much she is learning.  Today I woke up at 6:25am and heard her practicing letter sounds in her dark room.  She gets to eat school lunch once a week (we let her choose which day from the school menu) and Travis packs her lunch the other days.  He always puts some candy or something in it, so she loves that.  Charlie and I went to eat lunch with her one day.  It was a lot of fun to interact with some of her new girl friends.   They all love Charlie! 

This picture is pretty blurry, but we got a bird!  Her name is Princess Pepperwood - a compromise on the name. You can guess which part Savannah contributed.  We really like having a bird and Savannah is working on learning to feed and water it herself.  Charlie loves watching the bird.  Sometimes I put it on the table so he can "interact" with it.  

Baby boy is getting big!  He'll be 10 months at the end of October, and I'm putting him in 12 months clothes already.  I have no idea how much he weighs now, but it's a lot.  He still isn't sleeping through the night, but we're going to work on that.  He's eating all kinds of things. He prefers food he can put in his mouth himself and the little stinker is already avoiding vegetables!  You wouldn't think by looking at him that he avoids any food.  He's also crawling everywhere.  Wont be too long before he works on walking.  

We keep reminding ourselves, when things get crazy and when both Savannah and Charlie are freaking out.  When we are so so so tired.  And when scheduling naps and play dates is ridiculous - this is a short short phase.   We are in a season.  Our kids are amazing.  We love them and even though it will be nice when they don't take so much out of us - we know we will miss having a baby and a five year old because they are such a joy!
