In Feb, one of our gerbils died and so we were able to get a new one that got along with our other from almost the first day. Her name is Pippi, so we have Pippi and Poppy. She is cute and has lots of energy!
On a happier note, we are happy to announce that we are looking forward to welcoming another little one in September. We're all excited and I am really hoping for a cool summer! I am feeling better and starting to not be quite so tired. Yeah!! Everything else is going pretty well...we are all healthy, for the moment, the kids are doing well in school and enjoying it most of the time. Miriam is looks forward to joy school (Jeffrey joins in when it's at our house) and everyone is growing so fast! We got out the measuring stick out a few days ago and most of the kids had grown at least a half an inch since Jan. Crazy!! I can no longer see over Becca's head, which was a shock, though I have long since resigned myself that she is going to be taller than me, and soon. We are enjoying the start of spring--daffodils and crocuses and hyacinths, trees blooming, and lots of birds. Oh and the bugs are starting to reappear. I guess it's a small price to pay for some beautiful weather!
