Katie and Noah both had end of the year recitals...Noah for his Science combo class, Katie for Zoology, and Katie had a play that she worked on with her drama class. Her play was the week after Ruby was born. Thankful for friends who helped us out with all the rehearsals, etc that were going on at a very busy time!
OH and we finally became a family of five with Ruby's much awaited arrival on May 20th!
We've been adjusting very well!
Number three has been the easiest baby of all! It could be that we are much more relaxed or that she is just a good baby. Or maybe because of the age difference between the last two. Katie and Noah are a huge help...with Ruby and with doing some of the chores around the house. It may also have something to do with the fact that Ruby sleeps at least 4 hours at a time at night and many times up to 6. I realize that is subject to change at moment's notice though, I will enjoy it as long as I can! It has definitely helped in these first few weeks of recovery. Speaking of, I am recovering very well also. Feeling totally normal already!
The complete birth story is posted on the baby blog, but I will be posting here from now on. Back to the regular family blog.
We will be getting ready to start school in July. I wasn't sure I would be ready to start early again, but it turns out, I am! I know that it will be easier now than when she gets older, so may as well get to marking off those 180 days again! I can't believe I have a 2nd and 3rd grader! Our supplies are all bought and ready, I just need to get the first nine weeks planned out. I had hoped to get that done before Ruby was born, but I didn't.
I am motivated to get going on the planning.
So that's what has been going on with us...
