Other Stuff

Life lately has been a little busy. With Chris transitioning from his job at the school to the new job at the church, plus lessons - it's a little overwhelming. However, in between all the busyness there have been pockets of treasure that we have found and enjoyed with the kids.

Caleb learned to climb a ladder that is straight up. This is exciting to the PT because it uses different muscle groups that we have been specifically targeting and this means that they're getting stronger.

His fashion sense has lessened but that's OK because he's usually happiest in a spider man outfit with boots on :)

Sometimes Creed is just too tired to keep going so he sleeps like this :) Now that he's WALKING he needs a little more sleep than before. Here's a VIDEO of some of his early walking.

Caleb has been teaching Creed to love the drums as much as he does. And it's working! Between the 2 of them, there aren't many days that go by without someone getting some quality time in on the drums. And we're so grateful not only that the boys get along and play together but that it centers around music! There are also moments where they drum on each other's heads but we're choosing to not document that as much :)

Here is a VIDEO of some of the drum techniques that Chris has been working on with Caleb :)

Cadence lost a tooth! Seriously this is one of those milestones that we weren't quite prepared for, but it came and so we dealt with it as best we could. Kagan was pretty concerned about the entire situation :) but I (ashleigh) just pulled out the loose tooth and it was only after she saw that it was out that she cried! More for dramatic effect I'm pretty sure... The tooth fairy came and she got a gold dollar so she's hanging on to that until just the right thing comes along to spend it on.
Art projects have been getting done with Daddy on the weekend. This particular one introduced her to her address and phone number. And it was all done at Dunkin Donuts with Daddy.
Another "win" for the homeschooling adventure!

Hannah and Justin got married! It's been so cool to walk on the journey of their engagement and to watch them honor the Lord with their decisions. We're quite convinced that God has great plans for them and we're thrilled out of our minds to get to watch it play out. And they love our kids lots too - which is always a plus in our world!

Chris and I got to spend a couple of days together - with the worship team from church - at Catalyst in Atlanta! The speakers were great, the time together was unbelievable, the church planters shirts were hideous (that's the brown shirt guy) - sometimes you just shouldn't be that "relevant" ya know?, time with Annie was so fun, and dinner at the Melting Pot was way more yummy than anything we've had in a long time!
