Family Update.

I thought I'd post a quick update on the kids for today. There has been a lot going on lately in our house...updates will come eventually, but only after this month is over.

Put a video in and this is the scene! BTW, they moved little Jimmy next to them so they could all sit together.

Marco is continuing with his hip-hop classes and loves them. I suppose one of my kids had to have a dancing bug, since I enjoy it so much!! He's also still taking piano. Most recently, however, he did his Sacrament of Reconciliation (yesterday!!) and has been feeling wonderful about it!! He's looking forward to his First Communion with great anticipation and joy.

Brother and sister showing off their smiles and missing teeth!!

Isabella still has her cast on her broken arm. This Tuesday, they will be removing the pin that was inserted into her ulna. Unfortunately, these past couple of days have been the most difficult since she has been intensely itchy. But we are getting through it. Her latest accomplishment has been gaining great control of her left arm. I'm almost daring to say she is becoming ambidextrous. She is extremely tenacious and still completes all her schoolwork, independently, with her left hand.

Drawing on a piece of poster-board. Practicing those left handed skills!

Christian getting in the picture. Please ignore the dirty carpet. New carpet is being installed tomorrow, so I didn't bother with vacuuming today!

Finished picture. That's red paint from our dining room walls that Isabella made part of her drawing. She apparently likes clowns.

Anthony is progressing through his preschool year wonderfully. In a month I have been able to see him improve by leaps and bounds! I love seeing those "AHA" moments where he grasps a something new!! Truly such a huge benefit of homeschooling.

Christian is still a rambunctious 2 year old. From climbing on everything to drawing on the walls, he's keeping us on our toes! His speech has also greatly improved and is talking more than ever. It's quite entertaining! He has lately developed a love for singing as well, and I love hearing him make up little songs as he plays with his Thomas trains. Of course, he is also catching on to doing school like the older kids and has mastered holding a pencil correctly, drawing lines and circles, singing the ABC song, and sitting down quietly for story time.

Our little trouble-maker, Christian. He's a sweetie!!

Oh Baby Jimmy!! He's our little angel and is such a joy to have!! The kids absolutely adore him and he is never without someone to entertain him. He is also growing faster than I'd like him to. He recently started eating solid foods and the kids love taking turns in feeding him. We are so blessed to have him in our family!!

Bouncing baby Jimmy and having a first meal.
