The short take...

We're enjoying a crazy summer (already), before Kate starts Kindergarten (ALREADY!!?) this fall. Our kids are so much fun, and we are SO blessed!

Spring has arrived! It's warm, but hard to feel under the wind. All three of us are healthy again, and Kate is causing no small commotion every time she gets up on her knees and rocks a bit before moving her legs forward a crawl-step or two! OK, I guess sometimes she falls down too, instead of moving forward, but she's so pleased with herself at being able to move a bit! She can't often seem to remember how to get everything to work together at the same time though, so she'll end up trying to swim across the floor on her belly again. It's fun watching her, but she refuses to sit still ever anymore! Of course, once she's really crawling, we'll be wishing for the days of a squirmy (but mostly stationary) baby, as we run after her and try to keep all the dog toys away from her.

Honey is doing marvelously, considering everything. She's weak, but she's getting her determination back, bit by bit. This weekend, dad slept on the couch in the living room with her in case she needed anything, and awoke in the morning to find she'd gotten herself out of bed and over to the couch, and was now sitting next to him with a twinkle in her eye. We take Kate up to visit her as much as we can, and she just loves watching her play on the floor and the brief moments Kate allows herself to be held up on the bed. Daniel's been out here for the past week and a half, and has really been able to bless her with his nearly continuous presence as well.

Thank you all for your prayers- we'll continue to request them on behalf of Honey and her health, as well as our family as decisions have to be made and emotions dealt with.

Happy March, and we'll be getting pictures up as we can. TTFN!
