Update on a crazy week

We've been busy this week, and my head is spinning with details. My mom was here during the week for a business trip (we're hoping to have exciting news to share about that sometime soon). Then my cousin Abby came with her boys for a visit. And today Brian's friend Joey arrived for a few days. This is during our first full week of school, several orientations and start-up meetings, and washing David's bedding every morning after a failed attempt to get rid of nighttime Pull-ups.

Some more highlights from the week:

I came home one night and Brian had made a track with every piece that we own. Isn't this impressive? I cannot make a track to save my life.


This is becoming a very common scene at night lately. Katy is still struggling with anxiety at night.

Our friends JT and Adrienne had a beautiful baby girl. We got to see her when she was less than 24 hours old. It's amazing to watch two people become a family of three.

Emma Lynne...isn't she beautiful?

Katy is still enjoying school, which I am realizing is a big accomplishment. I have had a few friends whose kids have had rough beginnings, so I am so relieved that things are going well. She is tired after a long day, and there are parts that she doesn't like ("It's too hot at recess. Parts of the day are boring."). But overall I have a good impression of her teacher and we're off to a good start.

I think my boys might like to snuggle too but their beds are too small!
I'm so happy for JT & family!!! And yes isn't it an amazing thing to go from 2 to 3 - I thought about that a lot after I read your post.

I am hoping our school year gets off to a good start as well- we start tomorrow. And WOW, what a busy week and school in the midst of it.

I love setting up train tracks and it's always my goal to use every track but I can't always make that happen. That one looks really cool!

Love the new family picture and the picture of the two snuggled up in bed together. Pictures like that make me hope that kids keep that closeness throughout life because it's so important!!
