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!

We've finally posted the rest of the pictures we promised you- Kate in March and some really cute pictures of Kate's first trip to the creek from last weekend! She's doing just great- crawling SO fast and pulling up on everything she gets to- she probably spends almost as much time standing as crawling! She can even balance herself up on her knees without holding onto anything- it's so cute. She loved the water when we went to the creek- though you usually can't keep me out of the water when we go, it was too cold for me to really play in. Because of that, we were just going to dip her in and see her reaction, but she loved it so much we let her just keep playing- she ended up being in the water probably almost 4 minutes! We got some great pictures of our water baby, and really enjoyed our afternoon.

We decided that we have to make the call on her first word- it's YAY! It sounds a little different than her babble, and she always claps her hands when she does it, so there you have it; her first word! Though she knows who 'ma-ma' and 'da-da' are, she can't really say them yet, though she loves her 'b' and 'd' sounds so much, she's pretty close to 'da-da'.

Honey's still at the Hospice house, and each day is a little different. She has happy days and sad days, days when she can eat and those when she can't get anything down. Though it's hard not to take every bit of latest news and try to project what's going to happen, it's really not possible- each week seems to have at least one hopeful time and one downcast time. So we're getting up to see her as much as possible, someone from the family is staying overnight with her each night, and we're taking it one day at a time, thanking God for each blessing.
