Goodbye Beautiful Mississippi

We'll miss you! The moving truck comes Monday.

These last seven months have just flown right by. We arrived with a five year old, four year old, two year old, and a little baby who wasn't even crawling yet. We are leaving with a six year old, a five year old, a three year old, and a one year old who is toddling all over the place. Beth has grown tall, has gone from reading a few words to reading chapter books, and has made so many friends here. Matt has learned to ride his bike without training wheels, can operate the Wii, and brought home is first "game ball" one happy night. Beth and Matt have both learned to swim, and enjoyed their first season of t-ball as well. As for our little redhead Carrie....she is not so little anymore. She's long since potty trained, pedals her little princess bike around the neighborhood, and happily walks into her preschool sunday school class each week. Finally, we have Katy. The little love of my life. :) She is so sweet and so so big now. She has two teeth, eats everything the rest of us do, and spends her entire day making sure she is left out of nothing. It's funny how so much can change in such a short time. Especially when it comes to motherhood!
