Wow, Look What Happens When I Don't Post For Over A Month!!!

I am so sorry it has been so long. So many things have happened. Skyler turned eight on May 25th and not long after that the boys both grew mustaches. It has been a really long time since I posted!
About a month or so more and Shannon's brain spontaneously combusted. Just lit on fire out of the blue. Or maybe the red white and blue (Happy 4th of July).
And last but certainly not least in the last week the number of girl children in our home has doubled making it a little more pink (and she is little!!!) Oh, by the way, look how big Esmirelda is getting!
Ok, now I will go back and explain a little.
Let's see. We had a great birthday party for Skyler at the Riverlakes Pool. It was so much fun. He invited a lot of his friends and we had about 17 boys and girls there. It was a little cold during the week so I was a little nervous but it warmed up nicely by friday for his party. There were a few parents that stuck around and we all had a great time visiting. We ordered pizza for the kids and then had star wars cake/cupcakes. A wonderful time was had by all. The next weekend we drove down to Orange County for the day to celebrate Skyler and Amy's birthdays at Barbara's house. It was really nice, a wonderful dinner and Skyler got a lot of really cool legos (his favorites!). It was a pretty quick trip up and back in the same day.
Right after Skyler's birthday it was the end of the school year. Skyler was promoted to the second grade and David is all signed up to go to kindergarten! He is pretty excited.
Next came Vacation Bible School. I am working part time at Valley Baptist Church as a preschool teacher and volunteered to be a coordinator for the two year olds this year for Vacation Bible School. Skyler had gone last year and had a really fun time. This year David also got to attend and ALL OF US had a really fun week!
For forth of July this year we went over to my friend Sharon's house in the morning. The boys swam and we all visited, then we came home and had a small front yard barbique with our neighbors down the street. It was so much fun. Our street is really turning into a neighborhood. That is the night Shannon's head caught on fire! Just kidding. He taped sparklers to his hard hat and lit himself on fire! Too funny he is.
Esmirelda is still with us. When she got here she was supposed to be here for about three weeks and six months later she is still here. She is getting so big. She crawls all around the house and boy is she fast! The boys have such fun with her. Yesterday was court and it looks like she might be with us until at least the beginning of October. I just try and remember one day at a time, God has a plan!
Last Tuesday we got a call about a little girl that we think may go right into adoptions. She is just little, about two weeks old, and we are calling her Grace. I will keep you posted as we know more about her situation.
So the pictures. . . .
The first one is odvously the boys (growing up with moustaches already!!!)
Next Shannon on fire!
The next two are Es. Just to show you how much she has grown.
And finally little tiny Gracie.
Well, I am tired so I am going to call it a night.
Happy Tuesday!
