dot points of randomness

  • our washing machine broke.
  • the guy came out today and had to replace the motor capacitor.
  • Not bad considering we've had the machine for 10 years and have only had to replace a belt and the capacitor. Go Maytag!!
  • Nathan is talking more. If only we could understand him! His "1,2,3!" sounds more like "uh, tuh, TUH!"
  • He loves to sing.
  • We found out that the baby is a girl! Have I mentioned that already? can't remember
  • I went through the baby clothes the other day. I started sorting them to wash the tiny stuff but then realized that I should probably wait a few more months. =)
  • Some friends had a little boy Wednesday. We went to see him on Thursday. I just love holding newborns. And they smell so yummy!
  • The girls are doing well with their schoolwork.
  • Catie prefers reading to anything else including schoolwork. =)
  • Emma like Math and Astronomy.
  • She has also taken it upon herself to start writing in cursive. Guess I should work on teaching her the proper way.
  • Beka continues along in her Prep/Kindgergarten work.
  • She really enjoys the books we've gotten from the Mennonites.
  • And she has a third and hopefully final hearing test next week. I guess they want to make sure that the one she passed wasn't a fluke.
  • Further to yesterday's clever post I wanted to mention that except for the backing on the bookshelves every single step to go from live tree to awesome bookshelves was done by Mark!
  • And they even have some of the distressing with a hammer that's really popular in blogland right now thanks to a little helper. It's like the signature on a great piece of art. =)
  • We are headed to Atherton in a couple of weeks. That's where Floyd and Gwen spend most of their time. So we thought we'd check it out.
  • It's a 20 hour drive at least. ugghhh! But we'll be there for two weeks or so.
  • Gwen has been home for the last 6 weeks or so. It's been so nice to have her home. The girls love spending time with her and Nathan really warmed up to her too. Which is awesome!!
  • She's planning to watch the kids for us in September.
  • Josh and I are heading to Montville for 4 days in September to celebrate 10 years of marriage! Yay for us!
  • I believe there needs to be more focusing on and celebrating of marriages/anniversaries.
  • I'm sure there's more to say but that's enough for now.
  • In case you didn't know, but I'm sure you did, that's an ultrasound picture of #5 up the top.
