An update, and some random pictures...

Well, things are going okay here in The Valley. We are passing some germs around, but we're all still alive. Tyner has had Fifth Disease, croup, and a cough/stuffy nose cold. Sierra has had strep throat, Fifth disease, and pink eye. Jay had a pretty bad cold. I have had mastitis, and a cold that went from extremely stuffy nose, to sore throat, to slightly stuffy nose/sore throat/cough. Even Zeker hasn't escaped. He had pink eye (which he did not get from his sister) and a bronchial infection. But, we are all on the mend.

Other than that, things are going good. The kids are doing well in school. Sierra is reading amazingly well. As far as we know, she is at a first grade level, if not higher. She is loving school, and also loving AWANA club on Wednesday nights. She is flying through her book, collecting her jewels left and right. Tyner is learning about dinosaurs in preschool, which he is thrilled about. He is still a little loopy, and has a VERY vivid imagination. Zeker is growing up WAY too fast. He is such a happy boy, smiling all the time. We have a lot of fun playing together while the big kids are at school. Jason is doing good. We had quite a bit of snow a few weeks ago, which made for some long and tiring work days for him, but he still likes his job. I'm also doing good. Feeling lazy lately, and trying to find a way to kick my butt into gear. Please keep our family in your prayers. As individuals we are doing good, but as a family unit we could really use some divine guidance. Thanks in advance for your prayers.

Anyway. I thought I'd share a few random pictures from the last few weeks. Enjoy.

Here is a picture of the guys, watching Dad play a game on the computer.
Sierra fell asleep reading one night.

Zeker wearing Tyner's dirty sunglasses.

This one was taken today, during "tummy time." He is getting so big.

"I like big butts and I cannot lie..." We realized the other day what a big booty Zeker has. This picture really doesn't do it justice.

Anyway. Hope you liked them. See you later. And I'll try not to take three weeks to post again. I always think of things to write about, but I can never find the time to sit down and type anything out. Sorry.

How adorable! Rye loved the butt one and the one of Sierra. I saved the tummy one. He's sucha cute boy. Thanks for post...and I must say that if you can't find the time to post for 3 weeks, then you must not be that lazy.
Oh and tell Tyner that most of Rye's animals came from Target.
