I just realized that I really haven't posted much about this pregnancy. That's mostly because it has went by so fast. I have been feeling really good. A few aches and pains, but nothing compared to some of my previous pregnancies. I have lots of energy some days and other days, ZERO! I have appreciated our older girls more than ever, they have been and continue to be such a huge help to me. Everyone is excited for the baby to come. Jesse loves to feel it when it has the hiccups. Yesterday we took out the 'little' baby clothes and the boys couldn't believe how small they were. We also watched a home video that happened to be when Zachary was a newborn. Caleb wanted to know why he couldn't laugh yet! I think they will be anxious for this baby to grow up! Brooke just wants to dress her doll. So three more weeks and counting down. I know it will go very fast for me, and the baby will be here before we know it. So for now I will: try to get all those little projects done, calving, get some fresh air, finish up our parenting classes, homeschool, get out the cradle, pack my bags, enjoy my family, waddle, waddle, waddle, and get some SLEEP! AHHHH....

This month went by extremely fast as most of it was spent working on Mark's parents house in Morden. As you can see from the picture below we have been sleep deprived and are quite tired!
Our two little muskateers figured out they like Bob the Builder and have were delighted to get matching pj's.
Our Kerisco turned 12 on the 11th of this month.
What a delight she is to our family.
She adds humor, love, joy and a little bit of goofiness all of us.
We have marveled many times at how she delights in playing with her
younger brothers by choice and can keep them entertained for hours.
Our prayer for her this year is that as she grows physically, her love
for the Lord will also grow. We love you Kerri!
And here is our little Brookie. What you see here is what she is like most
of the time. She says too many words too mention and you can almost have a conversation with her. She is starting to tell her brothers what to
do and what not to do, and the character training has definitely begun.
She has been a lot of fun though!
