I know, I know it has been way to long but I have just now come to the realization that this blog thing is great. Great for friends and family that do not get to see the boys on a regular basis and enjoy all that life has to offer with three boys in the house. We have been a busy family with Preschool, swim lessons, soccer, and finally getting to go out side now that the weather is getting warmer.
The twins are now three and potty trained. It really was not that difficult and we lucked out it took about two week and a jumbo tin of Jellybeans but we got her done. They are full of energy and have a wild imagination. They are great friends and playmates always needing to know where the other is. The are going to be starting preschool in the fall so that will be exciting and new for not only us but their teacher as well as she has never had a set of twins in her class before. (She is in for a treat.)
They have just finished two sessions of swim lessons and are little fish following in their brothers footsteps. Nate was a bit stubborn and did not want to show the teacher he could blow his bubbles so he got to repeat the class and Alex moved on. Well he learned quick and showed teacher Stacy his bubbles and they will be in the same class next session.
Jacob is getting so big and so grown up. He is now 5 and in his last year at his wonderful preschool. He loves to learn and is just starting to read and recognize words. We have begun reading the Magic Tree House book with him which I highly recommend to anyone with 4-5 year olds. He is just learning how to ride his bike with no training wheels (pictures to come). He is such a determined boy and just keeps getting back up and trying again. He also has his moments of teasing his brothers and having a bit of an attitude. He is excited to start kindergarten in the fall and is always asking us questions about it. He has just started soccer and it is great not only for him but his parents as well. It is a great outlet for him. He is so loving and loves to give us hugs and tell us that "Today I am gonna really try to be good all day long."
I have made a promise to post on this blog at least once a week with pictures and updates of what is going on in our busy lives. So send your comments or notes we would love to hear from our friends and family. Here are a few pictures for now.
