It's been awhile...

Hi Everyone,

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. Approximately 6 months, give or take.  As you can imagine, 6 months is a long time in the lives of 2 one year olds and 1 four year old.  I truly wish that I could blog more often, but it's been a crazy 6 months!

Not only are we living our day to day as a family, but I started a new job in July, working for an inclusive preschool. Inclusive means that we accept all children into our program, typically developing kiddos, and also kiddos with special needs.

Because of the latter, to remain highly qualified in my position, I need an extra teaching certification in special education. I was lucky enough to snag a grant from my district and the University that allows me to do all this for very little out of my pocket.  That's the good news.

The bad news is that I'm away from my family far too much! Right now, I am attending classes at the University in Severe and Profound special education two nights a week.  Add in all the studying and writing that I'm doing, and I'm lucky if I get to see my little boys for more than 15 minutes some days (Seth goes with me to the preschool, so I see him lots :) ).

So, long story short, if you feel like you've missed anything with the boys over the last six months, imagine how I feel...

Anyhoo, here are a few recent pictures.  The twins are so verbal and active these days.  Parker loves to say "Aw Man!" and "Book!" Benjamin, sings "all through the town" and loves to use "up" and "down"

They are learning how to climb these days which scares the poop out of me. Not so much that they might accidentally fall, but that one might purposefully push the other.

Another biggie these days is dancing.  The boys love to dance!  They especially love to Riverdance. They can really get their little feet a-moving.  It's a blast.

How did I get so lucky?
