It still blows me away to think Sophie is already in school. But, we are super excited. she was SUPER excited to start and has bee counting down the days since May. She was great on her first day!! on her second...not so much. She cried and cried and wanted me to stay. But her Teacher is AMAZING and handled her perfect and got her to stay and have fun. When I went to pick her up she was SO excited to go back on Wed. She can't wait to go. again. So we will see how THAT goes. She was nervous. and tired. But that's something we can fix.

Owen AKA "owie" is well... one of the best babies. ever. He just hangs out and smiles at everyone and everything. SUCH a happy kid. eats like a mule, wants to keep up with his older siblings ALL DAY. now he's crawling and testing out his walking skills. he can take 2 or 4 steps from derek to me but he's not quite there yet! thank goodness.

this video cracks me up. I don't know what's funnier. Owen dancing to his favorite song, or the other two kids trying to steal the spotlight. cracks, me, up.
