Goodbye Training Wheels!

The training wheels came off of Emma's bike this week and she has taken to 2 wheels like a pro! I was a little concerned considering how much trouble she has with balance just when she walks. But she has mastered he bike with ease!

June has arrived! Here comes summer!

It's been another busy spring for us. It's hard to believe that this time last year we were on the road and on our way out here to Washington! The time sure does fly by!

The weather has been beautiful here lately. It's been in the 70's and even in the 80's and it's been dry and sunny. The kids have been spending as much time as possible outside and at the parks.

Emma graduated from preschool on May 22nd. They has a nice little program followed by cookies and juice. She was sad to say goodbye to all her friends though. Only one will be attending the same school that she will next year. She is already getting excited, and scared, about stating kindergarten in the fall!

Allyssa is wrapping up her last couple weeks in school. She will be done on the 16th of June. She is also wrapping up her volleyball season. Her last regular game is this Saturday and there will be a tournament next Saturday. Also, next week, she will be having her end of the year party for Girl Scouts where she will be bridging from a Brownie to a Junior Girl Scout!

Jake is growing like a weed! He's really starting to talk and he's such a ham! He's really been enjoying this weather as well. We have to keep the doorwall locked or we'll find him out in the backyard, as we have quite often.

My pregnancy is going well. I am finishing up my first trimester and starting to feel pretty human! I'm even getting some of my energy back! My doctor's appointment confirmed my December 12th due date and all looked good in the ultrasound.

Bill has been working extra hard. Besides putting in some overtime at work he's been hauling stuff from one house to the next for the last week. The landlord of our new home has allowed us to move things into the garage and pile it up. I can't lift anything so Bill has been doing almost all of the work! We officially move into the new house on June 20th. We are so excited! Bill is also finishing up another semester of school next week and starts the summer semester right after that. Fortunately he is only taking one class per semester, so we still get to see him!

Well, summer promises to be busy as well. We have house guests coming in June and July. And I'm sure we'll be busy unpacking and getting settled into the new house.
