not so exciting update

Summer is flying by.  I've slacked in updating my blog.  Not to mention I've slacked in taking pictures.  So a short boring update is all you get to reassure you we are alive and well.
  • Benji lost his 2nd (bottom) tooth sometime this summer.  (He's still not impressed his sister is beating him.  Each day he checks the progress of his not-so-loose top teeth.)
  • Carolyn lost her 4th tooth not too long ago.  It was the other front tooth, so she's without her front teeth. :-)
  • We started our (home) school for the year.  Benji: 2nd, Carolyn: 1st, Katie: Kindergarten, John: PreK (because of the age cut off, he wouldn't be able to go to 4K until next year.  I have a hard time holding him back.  He's eager, so I let him).  All 4 kids were ready to jump in head first this year.  Here's hoping the excitment continues.
  • My baby will turn F-O-U-R in just a few weeks.  That blows me away.  FOUR.  My baby. F-O-U-R!
  • Although the weather is warm (80*) and sunny right now, fall is right around the corner.  I love it for a variety of reasons: cooler weather, church convention, changing leaves, sweatshirts, the smell of the woodstove smoke, cups of hot cocoa, stews simmering in the crockpot. 
  • My husband could sum up fall in one word: HUNTING.  While it means that he'll be spending his free time in the woods or preparing for the woods, it does put meat in our freezer.  So I won't complain, too much.
So there you have it.  In a nutshell.  Our not so exciting update.

Sounds exciting to me... or at least a lot like things around here. School and teeth falling out all over the place. Except for the hunting. While my hubby loves me, he hates hunting. He prefers taking a trip to the butcher on Friday evening to getting up before the sun to sit in a tree stand in the 30 degree temps. I am just as glad. Not that I would discourage him if he enjoyed it, but we have so little time together anyway, I would hate for him to spend it in the woods.

I am just glad for a post, even if it is a post about the everyday life of a momma, her honey, and 4 kiddos! Hope the kids have a great school year!
