A little behind on updates...

I'm not doin' so great on keeping our blog updated. So much has happened in the last month. The kiddos are out of school and driving me nuts! Emmy had her Kindergarten celebration in May. She said she wants to be a ballet teacher when she grows up. :-) How cute is that! She finished kindergarten with flying colors. Mrs. Foster wants to hold her back though so Emmy can teach the class next year. Sterling easily passed 2nd grade and we will miss having Mrs. Burgardt as his teacher (again). Joe finished his first year of preschool and hopefully will go back next year. He LOVED Ms. Carol (and even said he wanted to marry her!!) and if all goes as planned he will be in her class again in the fall. Cori is just loving/hating having his older siblings home all day. We manage to spend most of the day outdoors when it's not too hot or raining. The like to run around and just get dirty. Thankfully kids are washable..though apparently not machine washable which is too bad. It'd be sooo much easier to throw them in there with the clothes. ;-) Kai is growing so fst. I'm sad to see her getting so big and yet excited at the same time to see what she'll do next. She "talks" (always) and laughs (occasionally). She loves to be outside and just look around. She weighs around 15lbs now. She ahs the cutest fat rolls on her legs! They're not as big as mine, but then no one seems to think mine are all that cute...We have a somewhat busy summer planned. The kids will all be taking swim lessons this year since we will be spending a week at Lake Powell. I thought it would be a good thing for them all to have some level of experience and comfort around water. Sterling and Emmy will also be doing an arts and music summer camp. So there's a quick update on our lives. And here are some fun videos. Enjoy!!
