On the market

We've had a good week so far and I can't believe it's 1/2 way over already.  Today Handley told me that she feels like the days are just going by so fast and I couldn't agree with her more.

One of the biggest things we've been dealing with right now is officially putting our house on the market.  We listed it about a week ago.  When we moved here 5 years ago we knew it was going to be our "5 year house" and that we would plan to move to a different school district when Handley started Kindergarten or 1st grade.  Five years has flown, but I'm going to save the details and how difficult this decision has been for another post.  I will say that keeping the house "show ready" every day is a workout and a challenge with 3 small kids.  However, the girls have been incredibly helpful each morning and now that we are into a groove we've got it down pat.

We are taking a break from tennis right now since it is so cold and cheerleading ended last month, so I told Handley she could start taking dance classes again.  She has been asking ever since Harper started, but there was no way we could fit everything into our schedule.  Today was her first class and she was super excited.  She walked right in with her tap shoes on and her head held high.  She seemed to really enjoy herself during the class.

Hudson has been walking everywhere and is really steady on his feet now.  I love seeing him chase the girls around and try to keep up with everyone.  He is also seeming so much happier because he can get around better.  He is also so sweet!  He is always hugging and kissing us and at school he loves walking up to people and hugging them.  Most of them he knows, but some he just gives a random hug to.  It's so sweet.  He also is understanding absolutely everything we tell him and his vocabulary is growing like crazy.  He sweetly says "thank you" every time he is handed something.  One thing he is loving right now is throwing trash away in the garbage can.  Every time he does it he claps for himself and says his version of "good job."  Too cute!

The most exciting event of today was when Robby showed up just before the kids went to bed.  He was traveling for work the past few days so the kids immediately jumped all over him.  :-)

Watching Daddy come up the steps
