The First

So today we have internet on the computer. Yay! This is awesome, especially since I have been wanting to blog for a while and it's very hard on my droid. So now that I have one, I have nothing to say. That's normally how it goes.

Well, I guess this is mostly for my family anyway, so I will share what the kids are doing. (It's not like the adults matter anyway.)

Cranston is now 8, loves watching television, and playing his Nintendo DS. He is mostly quiet, and you'd never hear him talking on the phone for more than he absolutely has to. (This boads well for future phone availability.) Cranston has most recently been involved with swimming. He taught himself to swim and it's his favorite thing to do.

Dylan is now 7, he is very energetic and often has trouble waiting for his siblings to wake up on their own. He has been known to yell loudly "hey, are you guys awake yet?" He is both loving and hating having siblings. Wonderful to have someone to play with, hates the dreaded SHARING! Since he was recently an only child, he is finding it very hard to share the attention, but totally worth having a doting father. Dylan will start swimming lessons on June 8th. Stay tuned!

Serene is now 6, and she is aptly named...usually. She is the little princess and loves pink. This morning, we fashioned a wedding gown out of a dress and some tulle. This was completely torn down when the boys and daddy started wrestling. She was in the middle of it, too. She is my "little momma." She wants to take care of everyone, and up until recently, she was always in the spotlight. (Cranston was happy to deflect that!) She is now having trouble with the realization that there's another girl on her daddy's arm. (Of course, he has two! It's not uncommon to find the three of us snuggled with me on one side, and Serene on the other.) My favorite picture was the one where the boys were wrestling at their grandma's house and she went and just sat in the middle of them. :) That's my girl! Serene will also start swimming lessons on June 8th, and then two days later will have her final gymnastic recital. This weekend she's in a parade with her gymnastics team!

Nick is just a few months old. He's our black lab puppy. Nick is mellow and sweet, always the protector. A few days after we brought him home, he was following the kids around when one cried, he would rush over to see what the fuss was about. He's a sweet boy, and we love him very much. He's already growing so much! Nick's favorite new thing is the pen. Brad put up a fence the other day and now Nick has a large part of the yard where he can freely run all day with his little sister.

Nala is the youngest member of our family. She's less than a few months. We are not sure what exactly she is, but she's part black lab. (Maybe border collie?) She's a ball of energy. She will just take off running! (But she stays in the yard.) Nala is known to run laps around the house. Nala is also thankful for the new pen. A big thanks to Daddy for putting up the new fence!

Currently on the to do list-laundry, dishes, run to the store for laundry soap and trash bags. Most importantly, must find something to have for lunch. Yesterday's lunch was sandwiches cut out with favorite cookie cutters!

Currently on the want to list-visit the ocean. It's summer, and I probably won't get to go. That's a bunch of crap!

Currently on the project list-the kitchen. What should I do with it? I'm thinking blue vintage something-or-other. Any ideas?
