What to write about?

I feel like I haven't had anything to write about lately. It's not that there isn't anything going on. It feels like we are so busy! Maybe it's just writer's block. I've never been much of a writer.

Life here is going well, but is rather busy, as I mentioned above. My class is going well. Right now I'm getting an A and I really enjoy the class. The prof is a bit kooky, but honestly, I think that's one of the prerequistes for being a prof.

The boys are doing well. Ezra took his first step the other day. And it is step, not steps, because he only took one and has not taken another since. He just seems to have no desire to walk. Which isn't all bad. He does seem to have a desire to talk and has been babbling his little head off. He smiles and babbles to anyone who will listen and if no one will listen, he'll talk to his hand.

Matthias continues to be a monkey. His newest trick is turning his bed on its end. He still loves being naked, so we have to continue to duct tape his diaper one for naps and bed time. He is also talking more and more.

Calvin is doing well. He just went to a 'Man to Man' conference which was about men's ministries. He really enjoyed it. His job is stable, so that is helpful. He'd love a different job, but right now we're just thanking God that it is stable and pays our bills.

Well, I guess that's about it for now. Hopefully, I'll come up with a more exciting post soon.

New Words

Matthias' speech has just taken off in the last month or so. He is learning new words every day and it is so cool to watch. He loves to talk about stuff he sees and is also able to communicate his needs more and more. But, like most children his age, he doesn't always have the pronunciation down. One of his favorite words is 'truck', but instead of the 'tr' sound, he makes a 'f' sound. So that is an interesting predicament when he is yelling at all the trucks he sees driving by. I'm sure people sometimes wonder what he must hear at home, but I guarantee that it is not that word!

Ezra is doing great. He seems like he is almost ready to walk, but just doesn't want to let go and take that first step.

My Human Anatomy class is going well. I love the material and am doing quite well on the quizzes and tests.

More Matthias Antics

He is such a hoot. (Note: Calvin helped him get up to this position, but he held it for a few secondson his own).

crossing my fingers

No mice in the traps for over 24 hours. Could we really have caught them all?

Mouse Count

3. Calvin finally set up a second trap. Hopefully this is it, but after my friend having at least 18 in her apartment, I'm not getting my hopes up.
