The beginning of the "ber" months (as my sister says!)

Yay!  It's September 1st!  It's 100+ degrees today, but there is the hope of cooler days ahead!  I haven't been blogging so well.  We've been doing major house projects, and it's hard to find time to sit down and think about blogging.  We have the flooring in the living and dining rooms done, and our furniture came, so things are really looking nice!  We still have the floors and cabinets in the kitchen, and the hallway floors to go, but we're getting there!  I am really looking forward to lighting the first fire in the fireplace and hopefully just sitting and enjoying it! 

The kids are doing really well.  Katie just started the 6th grade!  It seems impossible that this is her last year of grade school, her last year to wear a uniform.  She looked so cute on her first day with her new shoes and bag...they are so "her"...colorful and happy and a little on the wild side.  She's really been trying to "spread her wings" and it's difficult for me sometimes, but I know she needs to be able to use her own ideas and think for herself.  She loves the Lord, of that I'm sure.

Asher is just growing so much, he talks and talks and talks!  One of his favorite things is helping me...he loves to just do whatever I'm doing.  He is such a good big brother, he truly loves Claire.  I can just see it in his eyes when he is talking to her or sees her after they have been apart.  I pray they are always this close. 

Claire is such a joy...she is just beautiful and is also growing so fast.  We took her for her 6 month check up and she weighs 22 lbs and is 27" tall!  She is our little chunky monkey!  She is almost able to sit alone, and has been trying cereal, peas, sweet potatoes, and apples.  She loved the apples the most.  She is so smiley and giggly, and we just love her. 

We feel so blessed to have our kids!  I know I've said it before, but it's amazing what God can do!
