We have obviously been so busy these past few weeks, where are all my posts!! So a little update on everyone:

Rob is enjoying his new job and we are so glad to see him a lot more than we used to!! He is also loving all of the fun work he has to do now that we have such a big yard. Who wouldn't love driving that John Deere around and building bonfires though? He ran the Lansing City River Run Half Marathon with Jess last month and finished with a respectable time :)

I am meeting lots of great girls, thanks to Maggie's preschool and a local MOPS program! I am still sad sometimes and miss our Army life but being in Michigan during the fall (FOOTBALL SEASON) has been so exciting and fun. We have been able to see the Spartans play, watch the marching band practice before home games and tailgate. I am still struggling with what I should be doing/involved with here but am just trying to focus on my number one job and savor these quickly passing moments with Maggie and Charlie.

Maggie is doing well in Preschool and I am thrilled with the program she is attending. The teachers are so sweet and it is such a caring and fun environment for her to be in. It is amazing as ever to see her brain growing and she is really interested in letters, pirates, dress up and riding bikes with the neighbor kids these days.

Charlie is running, climbing and jumping all over the place. He is still not talking that much but has picked up lots of signs (as have we) thanks to some DVDs from the library. His favorite sign is "candy". He LOVES playing outdoors and follows his big sister everywhere. He is such a sweet little guy!!
We have been very busy with lots of visitors, already seeing Dad, and both Emma and Bridget twice since we moved in. The kids also got to spend a fun weekend with the Crowes while Rob and I were able to see a movie and have a date night at Lansing's Oktoberfest with Brendan and Jess. We are so glad to be able to see them and the girls frequently and of course, my Mom! She has dinner with us regularly and the kids couldn't be happier to see her! Oh, and Maggie is requesting I mention her awesome racing in the Dino Dash at MSU. She is so proud of her medal and we had a great time being active with some friends!
