I had vowed that I was going to do more in depth blogging this year and yet I have not! I have a post in the works, but not ready yet. Just a true look at life. Might not even be something I post, may just need to be something I write. Life is going good. Here is just an update on all of us.

Doing well. Did have some knee issues last year and had a torn tendon in his knee they did surgery in Dec to repair it. He is back to normal activities and does not seem to have much problems with it. He has given up running. This is big for him. He has been running for 35 years. We got an eliptical and he has started using it. He has to do something with all the food he eats he would gain weight FAST if he was not active!!! He does have a job interview with a local utility next week which would be a great job, so prayers would be appreciated.

Doing great. He is 8 now and in the 2nd grade. He is loving school and playing basketball for the first time. He has made all A's so far this year. He is growing tall. He has a few extra baby teeth and we have found out he has at least 1 extra adult tooth, so dental surgery is in his future. He has adjusted to us moving to a closer church home and made a great new friend. They have already had 1 sleepover and are planning the next!! Oh the joys of childhood. Elijah and Doug finished the clubhouse and have had fun playing in it. It is really cool. I need to get some pictures and do a post. Maybe this spring when it is warmer!!!

Sarah is doing really good. She has been healthier lately so that has been nice. We have all had a few illnesses, but she has not been as bad as in the past. She is back in preschool. The special ed class at school was not a good fit. We will see what next year holds. I have been collecting stuff for homeschooling if needed. She is adjusting to having a baby brother. She is not impressed with him, but is tolerating him much better. She does love him and love to kiss on him, but she is just not sure about him. She walked on her tippy toes for the first time Wed!!!!!! We had taken her AFO's off to check her ankles and she started walking on her toes. She is getting stronger all the time. Still needs the AFO's for now, but doing better. She is getting so smart and amazes me with her talking all the time, in fact had to tell her to stop talking for the first time the other day!

Isaac is growing up fast. He is still a rolly polly!! He is finally starting to get taller. He does not crawl yet, but he is so close. He is trying to pull up some. He has 2 teeth and jabbers all the time. He is eating table food and drinking from a straw sippy cup. He has been very healthy. He has only had 1 fever and 1 stomach bug.

Well, I am doing better. I started having back pain last year and found out I had to have back surgery. I had a spinal fusion in Oct. My mother came and stayed for 7 weeks and Doug's mom came for a week. I am up and about now. Just started physical therapy and finally have pain relief. I feel like I am going to make it now!

Well, that is the basics. I will do better, I hope!!!
