I'm still alive... I promise.

Hey everyone! I have been a terribly blogger lately, but at least I have good reasons for my absence. School started for us on the 17th of August and I have running around like a chicken with my head cut off since then. Teaching Emma at home through GVA and taking care of Madeline at the same time, has left me with not much time for anything else.

So, here's a quick update.

Madeline: She is doing great, and eating like a champ. She still doesn't like anything green, and we have also added chicken to this list. On an exciting note though, she sat up for the first time last week. I was so excited! She is turning into such a big girl.

Emma: We are on week 3 of 1st grade, and things are going pretty well. Emma is not too fond of school or authority, but we are slowing working on correcting her attitude in those areas. (That's just a fancy way of saying that she doesn't want to do her school work, and I am making her. LOL) She is growing up so much lately, it's hard to believe she is 6.

Ike and I: Busy....that's all I can say. We are both working hard in our various "jobs" and trying to make time for each other. Ike just celebrated his birthday on the 29th, and I made him a Boston Cream Pie for the occasion. It turned out great! See??
That's all the updates for now. I promise to do better in the next few weeks with my posts! Here are a few recent pics for your viewing pleasure.

Is this a happy baby or what?
Here is Madeline enjoying her new highchair and some sweet potatoes.

Madeline sitting up for the first time. Thanks Aunt Kathy for the floor mat! We love it!
On Monday, we took Emma to a GVA meet and greet at the bowling ally. She had a great time with the other kids. She bowled an 85!!
