Family Update

We are all doing pretty good. My husband has had a change in career - from working as a Dish Network satellite installer into plumbing. So far he likes it and is doing really well. He has done that before, up in Seattle, before the economy crashed and now he is working towards his Journeyman license. He gets the weekends off, which is great, and we go to the local Unitarian Universalist Church in Oklahoma City. We love it there. Kids get to play with other kids and attend Sunday School, and there is a nice feeling of community. We have got to seek out other like-minded people after all! And it is no secret we are a very science-based, tolerant, secular (i.e. humanist - gasp! - ATHEIST) family.

In other news (Hah!), I have kept the weight off for a full year! Which is great. I do love that I can wear anything I want (still a size 6!) and am thinking of joining a gym opening soon nearby. So that is my other accomplishment.

The kids are doing fantastic. Getting so big! It is so awesome to see their personalities developing and so fun to watch them interact with each other and other people in general. It is a learning experience for us as parents too! It's amazing how your entire view on life changes once you have children. It is true - a baby changes everything. We are thinking of adding baby #4 around next year. In reality we have no set number really. We will decide when the time is right when we are done - but now is not that time. Whether you have 1 child or 12 children, it is a personal decision. You have to be able to keep up with them though! Not easy. I will have to admit my 3 girls can be quite a handful. But we wouldn't change a thing. Still cannot imagine life without them and our life prior to having them pales in comparison.

Meanwhile, here are some recent pics!
