January 2012 Update

Some of the photos I promised...
MK had her first week of school at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. It seems to be the perfect fit for her and the answer to our prayers! Her teacher sent several pics. Here is one from recess.

And Conway is doing much better with keeping his glasses on. He had just started getting used to them and the frame broke! We got them fixed and he's back to looking sharp!

In mid-December he sang in Assumption Preschool's Christmas program. Even though he only attends in the afternoons most days and the rehearsals were in the mornings, he learned all they lyrics well. He LOVES to sing. Here he is in his dressy duds.

We also attended school's Breakfast with Santa for the obligatory photo with the jolly fellow. Karsten wanted nothing to do with him (or, as I've mentioned before, ANYone else besides parents and grandparents), but the kids had fun. Conway told Santa what he wanted for Christmas and then as soon as he got down off the stage he asked me where the table tennis set was. He actually thought it would appear then and there. I had to explain to him that there was a waiting period and it wouldn't be until Christmas morning that he'd be seeing the present.

...and of course there was Christmas morning. Conway got is still big into bowling so that was the prevailing theme yet again for him. He got a new piggy bank,

and his favorite, an automatic return bowling lane!

As always, thanks for looking in! We are so blessed to have so many people thinking of and praying for us and our children.
