Update and Pictures

So we have been super busy around her the last few weeks and my bloging has suffered. Riley turned 10, this does not even seem possible to me. I still feel like he is my little baby. Lorenzo had a birthday too and is happy to be 7. We are all just glad when he is happy lol! So besides April being a month of birthdays for us I also had a booth at the New Product Expo and it has resulted in more crazy busyness, but it has been good.

The kids also had their first annual fun run at school and it was a big success, they had a blast and raised a lot of money. Thanks so much to all of you who helped with the fundraising. They did not win the Nintendo but Riley won a gift card to Walmart and Lorenzo won an oil change, (he did not think an oil change was a very exciting prize, luckily Riley split his gift-card with him).

Liam started Preschool this month and I have really missed him. He loves school so that makes it a little easier having him gone but the house has been way too quiet! I feel like I am to young to have all of my kids in school!

Riley placed 2nd in his archery tournament and did a wonderful job at the school district's technology fair. He has been involved in an after school enrichment class and they built a website for their school. He has done a fabulous job!

We still do not know where or if jeremy is going on tour this summer. We are just kind of waiting to see what happens. I feel pretty confident that whatever happens happens and we will be fine. We would still rather have him home but we will be ok if he has to go.

We had a big evaluation with Lorenzo on Monday with a new group out of CA. They are an ABA therapy group specializing in children with autism. We feel really excited about the path they have laid out and best of all most of it will be covered by our supplemental insurance!!!!

last but not least, we added another member to our family. Meet Piper. Tinkerbell is in such demand around here that we thought (actually Jeremy thought, I know shocking) we needed to add another 4 legged friend to our brood. Piper is a sweet 6 week old miniature Schnauzer and we are loving her! it is so much fun to have a puppy again. It has also helped me be not so lonely with the kids all in school. (I know I will be singing a different tune when summer comes and I have 3 kids all home!)

Wow, you have been busy! Your puppy is adorable, is she as tiny as she looks?

Those pictures are so cute! I can't believe how much Riley looks like Jeremy ... and he doesn't look so incredibly skinny until you posted him next to the hearty looking boy! How do Piper and Tink get along ... she (he?) is really adorable!

And ... I would now say that Liam looks more like Lorenzo than Riley -- or is it just in that picture?
