Blogging


I'm not even sure that blogging is very popular anymore, with Facebook, Twitter, texting, etc. But, I realized it had been over a year since I posted anything so I thought I would post a bit about the last few months.

The kids are very busy...Clara is still doing cheer and is busy with school. CJ has moved from soccer to lacrosse and still fiddles with his computer and xbox. He also plays bass clarinet for his middle school band. Amelia is also doing cheer now and plays piano and french horn. Charlie is in kindergarten and is enrolled in two Chinese classes and will start playing soccer in the spring.

Even with the horrible snow conditions this winter, we were able to get two ski trips in so far. I must say that Charlie is quite the little skier. He seems to be a natural athlete and can pick up on things very easily.

Here is a picture from Christmas. I will be sure to post more later

Much Overdo Post!

I know it's been 5 months since I posted! That's what 4 kids do to your life! No time. I'll just post about September...it's been very eventful. Clara...started HIGH SCHOOL! She's on the freshmen cheer team and loves it. She also just went to her first homecoming dance...growing up so fast. CJ started 6th grade and still is playing travel soccer. Amelia started 4th grade, loves school (and life) and is also doing cheerleading (for the local youth sports association). Charlie started preschool (he goes 5 mornings a week) and celebrated his 2-year adoption day anniversary with our family! Here are some pictures...

CJ, Clara, Amelia Skiing

video

This is a little clip of CJ, Clara and Amelia skiing at Keystone. It was our first day out, first slopes! They were a little timid at first, but by the 4th day they were zooming down the slopes. It is so fun to be able to ski with all of them. It's definitely our family sport!!

Skiing in Colorado!





We just got back from 5 days in CO skiing! It was perfect spring skiing. We stayed with our friends that used to live in our neighborhood. The kids had a blast hanging out together and skiing together. And, Charlie spent 3 days in ski school and actually learned to snow plow down the beginner slope! Way to go Charlie!
