So I see it's been awhile...

Or Life has continued moving forward...

It's been awhile since I posted last, almost 2 years in fact.  The last time I posted Che was almost 5 and the girls weren't even 1 yet.  Ooops, guess we got busy.

Che just finished his
Kindergarten year, and while we had some struggles, it was overall very well.  He can now read, and writes stories, and does double digit addition.  He's excited to be a 1st Grader next year, and is hoping that there is less homework.  Something about 15 + sheets a week didn't set well with him.  Che also just finished his 2nd season of hockey, and is gearing up for the fall when he gets to start up again!

Che is taking a good interest in his community, history and Science as well.   This Spring he submitted an idea for the Downtown South Bend's Pitch Your Plan contest, and was selected out of 88 applicants as a finalist.  We originally thought he was selected because he was the youngest entrant, but later found out that the selections were made blind, and no submitters information was provided, just the ideas.  We're excited to present our ideas to the public on Tuesday, June 19th!

Lucy is quite the talker and very opinionated.  She knows her letters, and consistently counts to 15 correctly.  Lucy can also write some of her letters and does so on magna doodles, and with sidewalk chalk.  With Lucy, you only have to tell her something one time, and she's got it.  Lucy is the clumsy one, always bumping into something, falling, and getting scraped up knees.   She's going to have a great scar on her chin already!

Zoe is quiet, yet smart and thoughtful, always the one to share when her sister asks, and willing to play whatever game Che wants her too.  Zoe also knows letters and numbers, but good luck getting her to tell you.  She stated just this evening that she too wants to play hockey like Che.  Zoe is much more physically able than Lucy, but she's much more cautious too.

We added a new member to our family earlier this year, a 5 year old Schnauzer, named Thunder.  He's fit in quite well and despite his name is petrified of storms, making sleeping interesting on those nights!

This year has also brought us time to spend on hobbies we have long since forgotten since becoming parents to three, and one of those things for me has been gardening.  I laugh when I think about the vegetable garden I let go back to grass, and the flower beds that we let go to grass when we moved into this house, that I've not brought back.  So far we have lettuce, some tomatoes, peas, cucumbers and pumpkins.  We're hoping to have broccoli and cauliflower as well.

Mike has been able to go back to the pool, and is now swimming for the Master's Team at Notre Dame 2 nights a week.

It's a busy life, but I love it!

Thunder is very cute, my family used to have a Schnauzer. It probably wasn't as well behaved as yours, it got into all sorts of trouble.
