The rest of the family

Everyone else in the family is doing good. Dallin still loves the first grade. Earlier in the week he FINALLY lost his tooth. It was loose for quite a while and we told him to keep wiggling it and it would fall out. Clint tried a couple of times to surprise him by pretending to just look at it, then pull it out real quick, but Dallin was too smart for that and he wouldn't let him touch it. I'm glad Dallin lost his tooth on his own. (Without any tears.) Anyway, Calvin and Abigail are doing good. Abby is starting to sit up with help and likes her new stationary walker. (So does Elsa). They play with it together, and Abby likes to stand up in it. Calvin asks me just about everyday if it's time for him to go to school. He can't wait to be a kindergartener. Clint and I are doing good. Healthy, happy, and loving life with our four kids.

First Entry

Hello, if you're reading this then you know that we have started a blog. I thought it was a good idea when I read Micah and Camille's blog. What a great way to record our day to day activities. Since I'm not very good with "writing" in a journal and much better at typing, (and faster). What better way to keep a record of our family and sharing it with our family and friends.
We just recently celebrated Elsa's birthday. Since turning 3, she started the early childhood program at the elementary school. She's been going there for two weeks now and loving it. She was a little shy at first when I dropped her off, but now she runs onto the playground and doesn't look back. We have seen a difference in her already since she has started. She will tell me what she wants instead of crying and when I ask her to say a word she'll try to say it. Things are going great with her and we are so proud.
