best friends and brothers

spencer started Kindergarten today! Christopher is not quite sure how to take it either. His best friend will be gone now every day. Thank goodness we are starting with baby steps, he is only half day this year. I tell you though when we left Spencer at school all Christopher would say was "Get Spencer"..."where's Spencer". Made me pretty sad. If Chris is ever in a bad mood, or he's not feeling like doing his PT or he doesn't want to go to bed... he just needs his big brother to turn his mood right around. Spencer can convince that child to do anything. Thank goodness he convinces him to do good things and not bad! :).
So This is going to be a new adventure for Christopher, daring to try things with out his big brother by his side all the time. It will be good for him, and for us I think. This will be the first time that It will be just he and I...We will get some serious bonding time, and I am really looking forward to that. The only thing that makes me sad is that my kids are GROWING UP!!!! Emily is now an 8th grader, and James is in 7th. There is no picture of the two of them because they only let me take one quick one of them on my phone...PUNKS! I'll get a good one of them and post it soon though. I love my 4 beautiful children so much. I know I say this alot but Rob and I are so lucky to have these very specific special sweeties. We are so grateful!

newest family picture

I have been trying forever to upload these pictures to my blog!!!! Hoping this finally works. This is the newest picture of my family. We were on vacation for a month this summer visiting family. We were actually together with ALL of my brother's and sister's (there are 6 of us), our spouses and all of our children. We were all together to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. My Dad's wish for the last few years was to have the whole family together for a family portrait.We were able to acomplish that, and we are so excited about having all these new pictures of everyone. OOh I'm telling you we had the most amazing time with everyone. Now that we are home and settled I am going to be able to blog all about it. Lots of amazing memories to perserve. But, Here is the first of many pictures to share.....My kids sure are growing fast.
