Winter at the Zoo

I took the kids to the zoo the other day. It was sunny outside and very windy, but it was about 55 degrees even with the ice cold wind. We wore flip flops. Except for Rosie, who is ever more practical. We have a membership to the zoo because it’s only about 40 minutes from our house, and it’s such a huge zoo you can go twenty times and still not get bored. We’d never been in the winter before though....

Keeping Busy.

I have some news about Igor. I’m not really sure what to say yet. I’m working on gathering my thoughts. In the mean time I’m keeping busy, see? The Toddler Life: Henry’s antics=Never a dull moment, ya’ll.

Henry’s Speech

Igor and Tyler are in Atlanta. Tyler will be home on Sunday. Igor flies out on Saturday afternoon. Henry has his two appointments for speech evaluation coming up. First there’s an evaluation meeting on the 27th. I’m not sure exactly what they will talk about at this meeting, but it’s at my house and it’s an hour long! The second appointment is on the 5th of February and it’s the actual evaluation. I’ve heard they don’t do much for speech articulation,...

The Rec Center

I’ve been wanting to sign the kids up for extracurricular activities since we moved here. It’s hard moving to a new place and knowing not a single person, which activities are good, where to go, or anything like that. I found a homeschool co-op that looked great, but it had a waiting list that was for next fall. (Fall 2016) Ok so that’s kind of a no go, and sad because it looked so fun! I found another homeschool co-op that...

Snowy Pictures!

It finally really snowed here!! The kids were so excited to find that there was more than just the previous day’s dusting of snow on the ground. Igor said it was too cold outside to play, and Rosie only stayed out for a few minutes, but Henry and Ada had tons of fun. It was so bright out that Ada couldn’t see to smile. Hah! Yes, my two year old is almost the same size as my five year old. She’s...

Five Minutes of Henry.

I just wanted one sweet picture of him smiling without his sunglasses on! The pout: Singing into an invisible microphone! Here’s a video of our post-Thanksgiving dinner time, just hanging out… Edit entry Delete entry

October in Pictures.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks of October that I never got around to posting…at least not that I can remember. Rosie wrote this letter in Russian to Max. Every time we host each kid gets a welcome letter from their new family to read (or be read to them) on the plane. Rosie is super excited about Max, so she wrote him the welcome letter all by herself. Ada bathed the baby guinea pigs one afternoon. These...

Our Halloween Pictures!

It’s so strange to me that our area in Ohio does trick or treating on the last Thursday in October instead of actually on the 31st. It feels bad and wrong! So tonight for Halloween we did nothing. It’s silent outside. Not a thing going on. Here are a few pictures of the kids’ costumes on Thursday night! This was how the evening ended. Brrr! And I posted this in the previous entry, but it should really go with this one...

How to Survive the Grocery Store with Three Kids! (Vlog)

Our latest vlog post! The kids begged me to vlog a trip to the grocery store. I’m still not completely sure why they think this is so fun, but whatever. I need to get a nicer video camera than just my phone, and professionally edit my videos, and and and…wait. I can’t afford that. ;)

Toddler Hates Pancakes.

The kids are having so much fun with this. They love watching their videos! They keep begging me to make a “vlog” about every little thing we do. I figure it is a fun way of recording memories, and it’s great for our families back in Kentucky and Georgia since we’re so far away and they don’t see us often now.
