Some nights Dave and I lay awake talking about the fact that we have almost 5 year olds... we look back (on what we can remember) and it's hard to believe we've all come this far. I mean if you've been following you also probably have breathed some sighs of relief too.

Now that they are almost 5 things are easier. Ok who I am kidding they are ALOT easier. Noah and Ari are caring, sensitive, generous, easy going, try anything, kind, silly, good kids. They love big.. Going on Maternity leave this year was a bit hard for me.. I was really nervous how it would go. When I went back to work it was what we needed... we all needed the break from each other. I needed to get out and do something else and half days was perfect for us. We were blessed with the best childcare and things just came together. So a full day at home for all of us made me nervous.. would we fight all the time? what would we do?

I am so thankful to say it has been such a good year... I feel like we have gotten to do so many fun things. The boys love being at home and you know what so do I. I am so thankful for this time we have gotten to be together before it all changes... you know Kindergarten in the fall.. yikes!! Some of the days are LONG and we don't always get along but we figure it out.. the four of us just roll with it. Some afternoons we get in the car and go to town because I know they will fall asleep and we all need it but for the most part our home days are good days.

Just two more reasons to be so thankful for the life I've been given. A blessed mama of some fun, crazy, goofy, boys. Who somedays dress up like super hero's!
