On the homefront

Since school and after school activities have started life on the homefront is busy. But we like it that way! Abby just finished her first ever season of Volleyball and she of course was amazing! She got most of the points for our team each game because she's such a great server! I had the opportunity to coach her team and I had a lot of fun. It's my first time coaching a sport, and at the end of each practice I would just thank my lucky stars that Abby got to go home with me : ) Some kids are just a little too much for me to handle sometimes..I'm thankful my kiddos are so good to me! Right now Abby is playing baseball and swimming, and taking piano lessons! She's a busy, happy girl!

Mac started taking Tae Kwon Do and he seems to like it enough. He's such a quiet kid that really I have no idea if he's enjoying it! He just started play basketball, and he's in his second year of preschool. He can write his name out pretty well now and he's getting used to his new bike that we bought for his birthday. Mostly he keeps to himself, playing with his legos or ninja turtles.

Finn started his first year of preschool, he didn't love it at first but he's come around! I am sure it helps that Mac is there with him. Finn is enjoying learning all about the alphabet and his writing his name out, it's cute because whenever he sees a "F" anywhere he'll say "look Mama my name!! He is super excited for his basketball season to start up and his favorite line to say right now is "that's not fair!"

Jack is getting into the monster/destroyer phase. It's not fun most of the time, I have to watch his every move. One of his favorite things is to open our junk drawer and find all the pens, markers, and sharpies and draw all over the couch, the carpet, the baseboards, the walls...really anything!! He is talking more and he especially likes the word No! He loves balls, like a typical Wischmeier kid!! It's really hard on me to watch him grow up, he's my baby and of course it goes by much too fast.

Ben is good, he wakes up at 4am to go workout each that's dedication! He's always so happy and positive, I admire him so much. He makes life so happy and easy for me.

Life is good for us. Busy, happy and having fun...with the occasional Mom melt down of course : )
