I can't believe it has been 4 months since my last post. Wow! I really meant to keep this blog going on a regular basis. It looks like I have some catching up to do. On May 5th all three girls and I traveled with my parents back to Malone for and extended stay while Eric did some renovations on the house. We ended up staying in Malone for a five weeks. We had a great time, although we all missed Daddy! Upon our return, the house was a bit of a mess and the renovations were not done, of course, but at least the kitchen was mostly completed and very functional. (We had to warm up our dinner in the microwave which was sitting on the deck, but by the next day Eric had the new microwave, stove and dishwasher installed!)
Eric on the other hand did not have such a good time while we were gone, and who would? He had to work full time and try to complete as much of the kitchen and porch renovation as possible in a very limited amount of time while trying to cover for 2 people who were out on leave at his job. Talk about bad timing! But gradually the project is getting done, although it looks like we will be headed back to Malone for awhile this fall so things can be finished.
Lena got her first tooth in May at about 6 1/2 months and her second about a month later. She is now crawling on her belly at 9 1/2 months. She love to follow her sisters around as much as she can and finds them very funny!
Kaylee and Karissa are potty trained!! This happened about a week after we returned from Malone and took only a few weeks. Phew, I was pretty worried about that milestone, but they were ready. I now get to visit many public bathrooms.
We have had a lot of fun going to pools and spray parks this summer. It has been pretty hot here in Virginia.
We had a great time on vacation with in Malone in the beginning of August and got to see many friends. It was Eric's first time back home since we left last year!!
