Our ducks, all in a row

Well, it isn't until you look at pictures of your kids that you realize how fast they grow. Here's a little FYI on each of them...

Matt is finishing up 8th grade right now. I believe he is counting down the days until summer break. He wants to camp and fish the days away so that he can come home dirty and tired. He's looking forward to the hike that the young men in our ward are going on in July. Brad is going with him, so I think he is especially looking forward to that.

Adara is excited to be out of elementary school. She starts 7th grade next year. She will be playing the cello at school and is looking forward to the summer orchestra program that the school has during June. This will also be her first year going to girl's camp. She is very excited for that as well.

Madyson will be in 5th grade next year. She is currently taking violin lessons and had her first recital last week. She is also looking forward to swimming and playing soccer this summer.

McCandliss is going into 4th grade next year. She is playing the piano and enjoys having her turn to play the prelude music in Primary. She is looking forward to the outdoor pool opening up again so that she can go off the diving board.

All of the girls (along with their cousin, Angie) are participating in a 4-H sewing group that is taught be their Aunt Karen. (Who is fantastic with them and shows an endless supply of patience!) They just completed some book marks and some travel kits. They are very excited to display all of their projects at the fair in July.

Eliza and Daniel continue to delight us. Liza is still the queen of the castle. She is learning to say everyone's names. Matt's is of course the easiest. She loves to yell that out in the middle of church(which I think pleases Matt to no end). She is also endlessly entertaining to Daniel. She cracks him up by coming up to him and saying,"HI! HI!" I don't know what I will do when they are 2 and 3 years old. I can see all sorts of trouble headed my way.

Daniel has started to crawl this past week. He now knows no boundaries. He'll go anywhere. He is really such an easy going child. He is the perfect caboose for our family.

I think that's everyone! Hopefully I will be able to post some videos soon, so stay tuned...

You didn't say anything about Brad being excited to go off the diving board.

I recognize the onesie that Daniel is wearing. All of your kids are getting so big!

I hope Adara has a good time at camp. Camp memories are some of my favorites.
