We just got back from a quick trip to Houston, Texas to watch my cousin get married. Daniel and I were able to leave the older 3 kiddos with his parents and drive with my parents and Charlotte to Texas. We flew home. It was a very nice weekend, but it went by way too fast!
The summer has been flying by so fast. Before we know it, we will have our vacation and then shortly thereafter Savannah will be back to school to start 1st grade. This year she will be attending Greenwood Christian Academy. It will definitely be hard for me in the beginnig to remember to take her to and from school.
Daniel recieved a job offer on Monday. God definitely answered our prayers in both the job, and the start date. We had planned a vacation around my work schedule due to work being slow, and were worried they were going to ask him to start the same week we had planned to go. Thankfully, without him even mentioning it, the start date is the day after we return from vacation. Daniel is so ready to head back to work, and I am ready to be at home with the kiddos for a while. I will continue to work once or twice a week for a few hours, but am glad that the stress of relying on my job for income will be gone.
We are looking forward to spending a week in Ozark, MO with Daniel’s family in a few weeks and getting away from it all. The last 6 months or so have been rather stressful and we are looking forward to taking some time to relax.
Charlotte will be 8 months old in the next few weeks. It is hard to believe that she has been with us for this long. She is a little giggle box. She has been eating some solid food for about a month or two now, but still prefers to just have milk. She is rolling all over the place and starting to scoot backward. This last month she learned to sit up and is now pretty steady. She still does not have any teeth, but her hair is coming in quick and blonde!
Savannah finally was able to buy her birthday bunny. Actually, she traded 5 chicks for her bunny and was able to save her birthday money. Bartering at its finest. Violet (assuming the rabbit is a girl) is adjusting well and is very gentle with the kids. Charlotte is finally not terrified of the bunny.
The pigs are getting quite big. Every time we turn around they are so much bigger. Henry is now quite leery of the pigs since they are getting to be bigger than him.
