So it has been a long time since I have blogged. A lot has happened in the last few months. Alex has continued to struggle with school especially writing. He is a very smart boy but when it comes to fine motor skills he really struggles. We have sought help through private resources as well as through the school. Hopefully, he will soon get the help he needs to be the most successful student he can be. But throughout it all he continues to remind us how good God is and how much we have to be thankful for Alex's sweet spirit and loving attitude. As he continues to tell me "Mom, God makes everyone different." You got to love that boy!! Jake has grown up so much in the last few months. He has moved up to the big boy room at school and loves his new teacher Ms.Abby. He is continuing to add new words to his vocabulary everyday and has learn how to express himself very well. If you don't pay attention to what he is trying to tell you, he will clap his hands at you until he has your attention. I have no idea where he got this bossy attitude :) Definitely not from me! We have been keeping very busy with sport events (Alex tried basketball this year) and lots of church activities. We are all looking for to spring break in a couple of weeks. I think we can all use a break from our day to day lives. We are not going to New Jersey this year because of short time frame and I just don't want to travel with two small kiddos by myself. My parents are going to try and come here for a long weekend which will be really nice for all of us. We really miss not being able to see them every day and look forward to day they can move back to Texas. I think I have rambled enough for now. I am going to post some of our favorite pictures from the past few months and call it a night!
