And baby #5 is....

I'm several weeks behind on blogging because we've been so busy with the start of the new school year.

Sarah loves going to Kindergarten and still enjoys Montessori in the afternoons. Her kinder teacher says that she does very well at school. Her favorite activities include recess, computer lab, library time, and P.E. In Montessori she enjoys painting, singing, reading, and doing various creative projects.

Joseph was a bit jealous at first that he wasn't going to public school too, but he got over it when he realized that he would miss out on all our fun outings and park days if he wasn't at home in the morning. He's also doing homeschool math, reading, and writing with me on occasion.

Sarah and Joseph are also playing soccer this fall. They practice once or twice a week and played their first game last Saturday. They think it's a lot of fun and I think it's great exercise for them.

Kathryn is going to Montessori in the mornings, 4 days a week now. She looks forward to it everyday and her teacher says she is a busy little bee at school, choosing and completing many different work projects every day.

Davey is growing into quite a rambunctious little boy. He climbs onto and into whatever seems interesting, he makes sound effects for his cars, trains, and dinosaurs, and loves to wrestle with Dad. He's very energetic and keeps us on our toes. That's why we're grateful that our next baby will be...

a GIRL! Yay--bring on the cute ruffly, pink clothes. =) Today was my ultrasound and everything looked pretty good. We're excited about having another girl.

Now, we just have figure out how to fit our whole crew into our van. We have enough seats, but squeezing in all the necessary car seats or booster seats is going to be tricky.
