Jaide and Kiree

I can't neglect to blog about the girls.  It's hard to be a big sister.  Babies take a lot of time.  The girls have been good helpers though.  Jaide likes to help with Luke a lot.  She's a very helpful girl.  She helped Bob when he cleaned out the dryer vent (it goes nearly the entire length of our house, through the attic and it had a bird nest in it, among other things, well, mostly lint).  Jaide held the ladder for Bob.  

Before Luke was born, we signed Jaide up for a volleyball class.  The last of the six weekly classes was this Monday.  Bob has been the one taking her.  It's hard to get places with a little baby.  I did make it to one class and took this picture.  The parents helped out with the class.  Bob and Kiree are helping in this picture.  Kiree wanted to go to the rest of Jaide's classes after that one.  Luke didn't.  

Jaide has been in an enrichment program called Wild About Words at school this year.  Two weeks ago they had an enrichment fair to show what they've been doing.  It was supposed to be activity day at church, but the building was closed due to redoing the gym floor, so I got to go see Jaide present at the fair.  

Kiree likes "helping" with Luke.  Mostly she likes to kiss and grab him.  She thinks it's great when he wakes up!  On Sunday both the girls wanted to give Luke a bottle of milk I pumped.  They did a good job working together.  

The Friday before Mother's day, Kiree's preschool had a Mother's Day celebration.  They performed for us, gave us t-shirts they had decorated and a butterfly sculpture.  They also gave us a treat.  

Before Luke was born, Kiree was "Top Dog" at preschool.  I never got around to blogging about it.  The Top Dog gets to make a book all about him or herself and present it at the end of the week.  Kiree was very excited about it.  

The school year is winding down and I'm looking forward to the summer.  Hopefully the girls will have fun and we'll start getting into a routine with Lukey.

The picture of the girls feeding Luke is very sweet.

Is Jaide practicing her volleyball skills for the family reunion? She's probably already much better than I am.

Jaide would be on your team as she's not an in law, so I don't think we stand much of a chance as time goes on. I guess that is until we have enough older grandkids in the family for them to have their own team.

Yeah, the born-in-the-family team is going to grow at a much faster rate than the in-law team. Rosie and Becky and I had all better marry really good volleyball players if your team is going to have a chance.

Maybe the grandkids with different last names should be on the in-law team. At this point, of course, Alyssa and Evan are the only ones, and they're too young to play, but it might work at some point.
