Since having Emilia I have felt like I have not been able to do a lot of the fun things I would normally do with the big girls. One of them being volunteering in their classrooms. I miss seeing them light up when they see Mom in school.
I finally got an opportunity to help in Leah's room. They are preparing for the 100th day of school by painting 100 things of their choosing on their tee shirts. I was impressed by how well all the kids worked. They were silly and fun. Her class seemed a bit louder and more spunky than Ayla's class in kindergarten. I can tell Leah is a leader in class. She finished efficiently and happily. Her teacher asked to help other kids count and finish their 100. I am very proud of my big girl.
Every year we start the first week of January celebrating Christmas with the Owens family. And every year it is so much fun. This year was great because we got Brent's family home for an extended weekend. There were here for NYE through the weekend festivities. My kids were over the moon.
We got our first big snow last night and the kids were thrilled to gear up and head out. Abe of course with his shovel in hand. The bigs were ready to sled. E even got to come out for a few minutes since Daddy was home to help.
I have been married to my best friend for over 7 years. We feel so blessed to have each other and our daughters Ayla & Leah and our son Abram. Just enjoying time with our sweet family! We love life and hope to fill our house with lots of children. I am an RN by profession, but a mommy for life!
