And more times goes by......

We finally got family pictures done again.  Our kids loved Wheeler farm and it was hard to keep them from getting too dirty while getting pictures taken.

 Anna posing for Easter.  She just finished second grade.  She loves reading, especially Harry Potter.  She is almost done with the 4th book.  I have to make her stop reading and go to bed some nights.  She loves playing with friends.  She thinks she needs to swim every single day.  She is the most die-hard swimmer out of our kids.  First to get it, last to get out.  Complains when I make her come in. 

 Caleb on Easter.  He sure is growing up.  He has grown about 6 inches and gained about 16 lbs in one year.  I've been shocked at how much he can eat now.  When he makes corndogs for lunch, he makes himself a whole plate of corndogs, not just one.  When we had smores at Leslie's house the other night, he ate between 5-10 smores.  And that's after eating a good dinner.  He is such a nice boy, and helps me out so much without me asking.  When we go to the park, he follows Sam around and helps him instead of playing.  Its kind of sad when they outgrow the park.   
 Rachel turned 14 in May.  Its hard to believe she is that old now.  She wears the same size of shoes as me now.  She is just two inches shorter than me too.  She had a huge party for her birthday and had almost 20 friends come.  She has gotten really good at the piano. 

All of my kids together...Sam can hardly hold still.  Alex just finished Kindergarten.  He did really well in school and improved so much in every area.  He loved his teacher and is sad that he won't have her next year.  He is currently taking swimming lessons, and is getting good.  He got a retainer to help correct his severe underbite.  He has had it one month and hasn't lost it yet.  I can see that its helping already.
