Well, our little baby girl has finally arrived and we are doing great. She arrived late August and was just a few days late. The recovery has been a little harder this time, as I hemorrhaged about two hours after delivery, but things are going much better now. The older kids LOVE having Katie around and want to kiss her and hold her all the time. Honestly, they are soo much help. They bring me what I need and have really stepped up to take up the extra slack where I've had to let go a little. My wonderful husband has also been AMAZING through the whole thing.
We have been soo blessed with this sweet little baby in our lives and are so thankful that she is here safe and sound.

Seriously the highlight has been going to Tennessee to visit my parents on their mission. We went to the Grand Ole Opry while we were there and got to see Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, and Trace Atkins along with many other great performers. It was soo fun. It was amazing to see my parents and spend time with them, but SOOO hard to leave. They are doing great!

Austin, Morgan, Allee,
Evee & Abigail on a trip to This is the Place
We have been trying to keep the kids busy this summer and it seems to be making things a little better so far. The kids are having fun. We've been on a couple hikes, a couple bike rides, to Young Living Lavendar farms (where I fell and broke my camera), This is the Place, The Hogle Zoo and lots of picnics. I also included a picture of both of the boys at the dance festival from the end of the school year.
Austin was in "Time out" in the schoolhouse at This is the Place. They were demonstrating what the naughty children had to do when they got in trouble. I think it made Austin think a little about how he should behave. I think I might start trying this at home....

Austin is a mad scientist for his school opera this year. He walked into the house yesterday after the dress rehearsal and this is what I saw. Those of you who know Shane, can you see the resemblance?
