Unforgetable Story

On Sunday, I normally do our grocery shopping, after church. So, we (all) went, to whole foods to eat lunch and than I would shop. Normally, we do not ALL go! We got our food and Jake was checking out. I went to get the kids water and sent them to a seat. While I was getting water, a lady stopped me and said "I'm a kindergarten teacher and your kids are so well behaved!" I told her "Wow, that means a lot to me." Not even two seconds later, I turn around to Harper pulling down the fire alarm. Holy cow. I remember trying to put it back up, to see if it would turn off! Whole Foods, on a Sunday it completely packed. At least 500 people in the store. Over the intercom "everyone needs to evacuate, to the nearest exit." People are everywhere, leaving carts, leaving food at check outs....all because of Harper! We walked out of the doors and could hear the fire trucks coming! We literally, didn't stop, just kept walking to the van. I still could not believe it happened. Just a few months ago, Kamdyn knocked over a huge display at the Broward County College Library, which is packed with people. I'm now going to a different library and will have to do the same with Whole Foods!

Here we are, September. I can't believe it. Landri Rose will be 1 in two months. How is that even possible. She's moving chairs around and not sleeping through the night! We accomplished a few milestones this month. Kamy Rue, learned to ride her bike with out training wheels. We took them off in 1 day and she was riding by the end. I can't believe our 4 1/2 year old is riding her bike. She also, started swimming last month. I asked her to take her floats off, she did and swam from one end of the pool to the other! Ta Renee, is getting big! She's tackling 2nd grade work, at the age of a 1st grader. Harper Caid, he's huge, tall! He says 12 word sentences. He looks like his daddy with blonde hair. We as a family, will travel to NC next week! Jake, is laying down his vocals finally, for his second album! Hopefully, it will be out by the end of this year!

Harper 2, will just try not to break or hurt himself while we homeschool. Landri 9mths, will hopefully do something she doesn't do often and nap. We look forward to this year. I'm super excited for our kids.

The crew!

5 months?

I can't believe its been 5 full months since my last blog! Time has flown by. We are well. We've been in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a year. Taylor, is 6. She turned 6 in April. She's fully reading at a 3rd grade level. She loves to sing and read her bible. Every night, she wants to read her bible in bed. She's a go getter for sure. She's lost two bottom teeth and has grown a few inches Kamdyn, is 4. She turned 4 in April. She's spelling and is reading basic words. She can swim with out a float. One night we told her, we would give her a full bowl of chocolate chips if she took her vest off to swim. Sure enough she took it off and swam across the pool, long ways! She's getting big! Harper, he's 2 1/2. He is all boy. He eats us out of our house, already! I bought him a soft baseball bat and ball. He hasn't put it down. He is currently sleeping with it, in his big boy bed! We made the switch from crib to big boy bed in June. He loves it! He's also almost fully potty trained. Landri, is 8 months! WOW! I can't believe she's already that big. She's crawling, pulling herself up, eating food. Tonight, she almost put her leg up on the second stair. She has yet to sleep through the night! She's the baby for sure. Jake and I are doing well. Jake, is almost done recording his 2nd album. Just a few more "layers" and he will be finished. It should be out by Christmas. My photography business, has picked back up since moving. We're busy as always with 4 kids.

Its been too long!

Now, I have so much time on my hands during the day to keep up with this blog. Not really! We're doing well. Loving life in Florida. Kids are doing well. Taylor, is 5 almost 6. She's a year a head in school. So, she currently doing 1st grade instead of kindergarden. She's excelling at reading and writing. She loves to help with Landri. She loves riding her bike and playing. Kamdyn, read her first real book yesterday. Yes, she is 3 almost 4. We've been working on sounding out words and putting them together. She's doing well with helping me with Landri. Harper, well he's a boy. He loves dirt, loves cars, trains and trucks! He's already eating us out of our house. We're working on our colors. He's doing well. So far, he has the color blue down. Landri, is doing well. She's sleeping, eating and growing. Her sisters and brother love her so much! She's in the 90% in weight and height. She giggled for the first time yesterday. Jake, is recording his 2nd album starting in April. He's super excited. He'll be recording it at a studio in North Carolina. The same studio that he used for his 1st cd. Me, I'm good. Trying to juggle 4 children. Someone once said that 3 child is dreading water and 4 children is sinking! Ha, I believe it. I enjoy them all but its overwhelming at times. So, pray for us!

Happy New Year!

Better late then never! Happy New Year. We are doing well. Landri, is such a beautiful baby. Perfect, yes. She's a good sleeper. At night time she sleeps about 6 hours. During the day she's nursing about every 3 hours. She can sleep through everything! I guess as #4 you have to survive! Taylor, is loving life. Doing well in home school. She is thriving, doing a 1st grade and she's 5 1/2. Kamdyn, is becoming such a sweet little girl. She has such a sweet spirit. She's thriving in home school as well (preschool). She's almost reading. She's spelling and sounding out words and she's 3 1/2! Harper, just turned 2 on Saturday January 5! I can't believe this little boy is 2! He's into everything and loves to pester his little sister, Landri. He's a sweet boy. He's in love with trains, trucks and bob the builder. For his birthday, we took the kids to monkey joes and celebrated with a train cake. He got a ride on buzz car, which he loves driving around! Jake and I are doing well. Jake, is working on a getting a new CD together. He's hoping to record at some point during 2013. Me, having 4 children is an adjustment! Its wonderful, crazy and I would never change it. Our church, NorthStar Fort Lauderdale, is awesome. The Lord has awesome plans for the people of Fort Lauderdale! When you remember, praying for us, our church and our family!
