It's been too long!

We are doing well here. I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. It just slips past. I keep thinking I don't have enough time to write what I would like..... and then I just don't write at all. I'll try to do better, even if it is just a bit. The kids are doing so well. My big kids are getting bigger every day, and are in general great kids. The littles are fun and messy, and oh so sweet. Georgia and Calvin are doing better every day. They are seeming much more secure, are able to go to their classes at church with their siblings and feel comfortable. They are sleeping great (which is such a gift!). Calvin finally got his leg brace last week, and started physical therapy. He is more stable already, and doesn't seem to mind the brace at all! He has changed the most. He was such a unhappy, crabby, whiny little boy at first. Understandable, but still so difficult.  We had glimpses of happy occasionally, and now he is such a fun, happy, kind little boy. He laughs, and plays, and is just a joy. Georgia is so sassy, and outgoing, that she was much easier in the very beginning. Then we had some testing (still sometimes), and now she is figuring out that we are more than just the same  old type of caregivers, and she seems to really like it :) Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures, and I'll try to write more often of our daily adventures.

 Walking through the hospital.
Easter egg hunt at the hospital.

We stopped by the Poly to ride the monorail.

Georgia climbing with abandon.  And we didn't know if she would be able to walk. God is so good!

this egg hunting thing is the best!

Thrill seekers should try W*lmart with 8 kids, lol.
