Dang, Jane had so many more teeth the last time I posted! haha. In all honesty I am completely surprised at how much has changed since I was last in this space. I have been missing it though. I really love documenting our life and sharing the things we love but it's hard to fit that all into Instagram. This blog used to be a place to collect all my thoughts, our adventures, and the extra photos. I think I need to make a habit of that again. Not that y'all particularly missed it, but I did.
So much has happened and I don't think I could adequately bridge the gap so we are just going to start fresh. As of right now my girls are all in school and absolutely loving it and I am trying to balance all the other aspects of life. We have a contract on a house here in the same neighborhood and if all goes as planned we will get to move in at the end of the month!! Like a good mom I planned two things without remembering my own daughter's birthday so it is going to be a jam packed and overly exciting last week of April! We are supposed to close, the next day is Kate's birthday, then the day after that we head to Florida to stay in an awesome VRBO and go to HARRY POTTER WORLD!! Speaking of which, I still haven't bought tickets for all of that. Honestly I was overly surprised when I saw how much it all cost and I think I have been in denial since. I guess it's time to pull the trigger though!!
As I am sure y'all have gathered from the overabundance of photos in our backyard we are absolutely LOVING living on a lake. Just about every day after school they girls head out back to play in the water. Have no fear, I have worked with all of them on ISR swimming and all three girls, yes, even 3 year old Kate, can swim laps in the pool all by themselves. Wyatt is getting really good at floating and is improving every day. Today it was very exciting because he was consistently turning himself over to his back to float! He is overly obsessed with jumping off the wall (which he then floats and gets to the wall to pull himself out) and swimming to the stairs. I will try to post some videos of the girls swimming the next time we all go, it's so fun to see them all thriving in the water!
All in all life has been really good to us down here. We miss a lot of things about Alaska but this is home now and we are building out community. I hope y'all enjoyed these behind the scenes photos of our life!
