Bicycle Mayhem

One of the kids very favorite activities right now is riding their bikes. Stella, Beatrice and Elias came to us not having a clue about how to ride a bike, but picked it up extremely quickly. Emma (and Nathan and Hope) have jumped right in and shared some of their daredevil antics with them. Fabulous. It is actually very fun to see them all having fun together, even if it ends in a bicycle boo boo....

Poor baby! (He WAS wearing a helmet at the time, maybe we should add a face mask!)

I'm Back!

I've been on a blogging hiatus lately. Don't blame me, blame Facebook. If you really want the scoop on our family, I suggest you join me over there, don't worry... I'll accept your friend request.

I'm going to post some videos taken of our kids recently, to jump start my leap back into Bloggy Land. Those of you on Facebook have seen them before. Sorry!

These are some videos of one of Emma's gymnastics meets:

This one is Nathan and the 8th grade guys doing a skit at church. They had to do a 1 minute skit called Compelled by _______. They chose Compelled by Music. What makes this truly funny, is that up until this point, Nathan has been rather quiet and shy. This weekend at church really brought him out of his shell, now we are going to spend the next few years trying to shove him back in... (He's the one 2nd from the left, wearing a beanie).

So, yes, we are alive! Yes, we are fine! Yes, all of the kids are doing great! I was just busy having an affair with Facebook.
