School's Out For Summer!

That's it! We're done!  Emma finished her first year of school, which was also our first year of home schooling.  What a journey it has been.  We discovered that our little girl has a talent for math and science, and hates phonics.  Phonics has been...well, a challenge.  She tests at grade level, but she just does not like to do phonics lessons.  At all.  We'll be working on that while we're on break.  But for now, she gets a chance to relax and take a little time off before we work on more school work.  To be honest, it is just as much a break for Adam and I as it is for her.

Life has been a little crazy since Avery came earth-side.  Big sister is having a bit of a hard time adjusting to her new brother.  She loves him so much, but has a hard time sharing attention and time.  Avery is like a doll to her, and excited hugs have led to a puking baby more than once.  She'll get the hang of it eventually. 

Little Avery has been growing like a weed, and is 13 lbs and 24 inches now.  He's a happy little guy, full of smiles and squeals.  Ceiling fans are pretty much the best thing ever to him, aside his dedicated milk dispensers. ;)  The poor little guy is dealing with a little bit of a stomach bug that all of us got aside from Emma.  I'm hoping that will pass soon, and we'll be able to enjoy the nice weather.
