Kids Update (long over due!)

The month of September had been a hard one.  I'd say three out of the four weeks, one or both of the kids were sick.  Its also crazy for birthdays, especially William and Natalie's that I need to plan parties for.  Then, I started working for a blog that pays!  So, I haven't been thinking too much about writing. 

So, at long last, an update on the kids.

  • Is getting used to the school rules and routines and tells me about them.
