Welcome to my blog. I've been inspired by a few friends to start a blog to keep friends and family updated with pictures and the details of our crazy lives. To catch everyone up, we moved back to Searcy in December after a very interesting experience in Kansas. Blake and Claire finished kindergarden at Sidney Deener and loved every minute of it. It is so fun to watch them and their personalities come out in their activities and interests. Blake likes to read, loves legos and Star Wars, wants to know how everything works and never forgets a thing. He's a little engineer. Claire is pretty quiet. She likes to read, loves math, art and is very athletic. During a recent trip to my grandmother's house she taught herself to play Mary Had a Little Lamb by ear on the piano. So now we are checking into lessons. Anna Kate never stops talking. NEVER!!! She loves playing with baby dolls, playing dress up and performing whether it be ballet or singing. She is very dramatic...a true red head.

We are enjoying our summer by visiting grandparents and taking swimming lessons. They have two more weeks of swim lessons and then we'll be done. All three of them are looking forward to school starting. Anna Kate will be going to preschool five days a week this year at Curtis Kindergarten. She and I are so excited. She was so bored last year being at home. I think it will be good for her.

For now we're just enjoying the long summer days and loving being back in the south...back home hopefully for good.

Welcome to the 21st century! Katie actually said, "Who are those people?" for JUST A SECOND when she saw the pictures. I think we need to come visit soon!

I started a blog and then stopped. So, I need to re-start it again. It's nice hearing from you and seeing pictures of the kids. Keep it up. I'll keep checking from time to time too.
