Not Much to Blog About...

I feel as if I am neglecting this blog, but in all honesty we just don't have much to post about right now. We have been super busy getting everything organized and ready for a new little addition who is due to arrive very soon. We have also had some pretty spectacular weather which we have been enjoying. And to top it all off, everyone came down with colds recently. Eventful, but not really photo worthy. So, instead of my normal posts with tons of photos, this one will be photo free, but I figured I would update on what is going on. Michael has spent his recent times putting up a new trampoline. We were really wanting a trampoline with a net on it, too many wrestling boys (and girl) around here to go much longer without it, and we found one at Sam's Club for pretty reasonable. I think it was supposed to be a 2 or 3 man job, but he did it by himself and it looks awesome. The kids have really enjoyed it and it makes me feel a lot safer. Of course, the first time they really got to jump on it, Alyna hurt her knee...go figure! But, it was not a bad injury and she is doing fine now. Michael (and I) have also been busy with coaching our soccer team. Michael decided (or got roped) into coaching Noah and Alyna's soccer team this year. I never realized how much work it all is...ordering jerseys, scheduling practices, waiting around for other things to be scheduled. It is a little crazy! But, I think once all of the organizational stuff is out of the way, it should be really fun! I have been staying really busy trying to get some last minute organizational/cleaning things done at the house. I have a few more things I am hoping to accomplish before little one comes. I also decided to go canning for the first time this Saturday. It was really fun! We got a bit of food storage done and I was glad to get to go learn how to do it for future use. The kids are all doing great. Alyna is anxiously awaiting the new baby to come and of course is excited about this season's soccer games. Noah is thrilled about soccer since it is his first year to get to play. We had a bit of a time finding shin guards and shoes for him because he is so tiny. We ended up going to a soccer specialty store to find them and his shin guards are still too long for his tiny legs, but they will do and they look pretty adorable as well. Lucas is doing his usual, getting into things of course! Yesterday, he decided to paint the craft room blue, literally. Took some cleaning up, but luckily I have learned my lesson about keeping non-washable things (i.e. sharpies) in our house, so it wasn't too bad. We are all still recovering from this little cold that hit us this weekend, but it seems everyone is at least on the road to recovery. I am hoping to maybe get out and do some fun things in the next week or so, but until then, this post will have to do.
