Family Update




It's been so long I can barely remember my account info! Life is great. I can't believe how fast Luke has grown up. He is approaching his 1st birthday. He has surpassed each of the girls...sporting EIGHT teeth for his first birthday! He just started to munch on a pear and I thought it was so cute.
















Emily loves kindergarten and her teacher, Mrs. Holbrook. Her favorite subject is math and she loves to swing on the monkey bars. It has been so fun to watch her learn to read and write. I love all of my little notes from her all around the house!










Savannah just turned 4, but is already planning her 5th birthday (she's already told me what she wants for her breakfast in bed and on what tray I should use to bring it in to her)! She is thrilled about her pink sparkling shoes...and has almost worn them out in just a month. She is a very "attentive" sister and continues to try to carry Luke around by the neck.




















A little over a year ago, Rick started working as a health insurance agent. It's been challenging, but he has really enjoyed it.





I have started to take sewing class every week and have loved this new hobby. My teacher is 84 years old and as sharp as a tac! She has so many great stories and is such a great example to me. I am also playing basketball on a city league again (this is our team's 3rd year together). We have a lot of fun together and I love the exercise.



My sister, her husband, and 3 kids had been staying in our basement (for 3 months) and just moved out at the beginning of the year. They sold their house and were buying another. It was so fun to have daily lunch dates with Michelle, a constant party for the cousins, trading off babysitting, family parties, etc. We miss them and are so grateful for the many memories! We are still glad they live close by.

So happy for an update!!! Hooray!!! Luke's little face looks just like his sisters - but very BOY, of course! I love hearing what your family is doing. I'll be thinking of you running up and down that court. They don't make you run sweet 16's do they?! ;0) We really do need to make it down there to hang out for a weekend. Miss you!
