I apologize for the lack of posts. We have been under a lot of stress and have not had the best Internet connection. Hopefully soon we will be moved into our new house and things will get back to normal and I can back track. As of right now my connection is slow and it takes a lifetime to upload pictures. Oaklen is having a great year at school and is handling all the shifts in living space like a pro. He's excited to get into the new house and starting his new school. He had a great 13th birthday! The little ones just had their 4th birthday and I will try to get pictures uploaded soon from both parties. The little ones are not taking the moves very well but I have hope to get them back on track in the new house. Temper tantrums are bad right now but to be expected since we have 5 sharing one bedroom. It must be tough being a triplet and spending every minute together. School is going well for me and I just finished up by first marathon with the cutest cheerleaders at the end. Adam has been running half marathons since he's having some knee issues. It seems to be what has kept up half way sane with the building process. That's all for today just wanted to get a bried "we are still alive" post!

Lets see if I can catch up here....

Oaklen being the best big brother! He is having a wonderful Summer and get this.....he even volunteered to help me clean the kitchen the other day. I thought surely I was dreaming!

The triplets playing with bubbles.

They are doing great and really enjoying the summer. They are growing up so fast. A few words they still say wrong are...buttwhoops (belt loops), coshquash (washcloth), pokanuts (polka dots), beetar (guitar). We refuse to correct them on these words because it's just too darn cute. We know soon enough these baby words will be gone and we enjoy the little smile it puts on our faces to hear them!

We had a long ride home yesterday from point pleasant and the boys were singing very loudly "Dina won't you blow, Dina won't you blow, Dina won't you blow your hoooorrrrnnn". Addison in hysterical tears says "I just want some quiet!" that's usually my daily thought but on this day Adam said "Addison just put your fingers in your ears" Addison replied with "ewwww that would make my fingers sticky."

Brock is having many temper tantrums at this age, but just as quick as it starts it ends and he apologizes. Addison is bossy and with Brock's short temper almost all fights are between the two.

Addison entertains herself very well she loves to color! She can write her name and many other letters. She will spend hours at time at the dining room table.

Tyler is at a very sweet stage. He's a very quiet child and will sit and snuggle long periods of time on the couch. No fights between him and the others unless the others really provoke him. He rather just ignore them and go about his day.

Of course we always have some type of craft keeping us busy.

We do a lot of play dough here. Its came down to using new play dough every time because they just demolish and blend all the colors. Good thing its cheap to replace. I wish I had gotten an after picture maybe next time.

We have hit some glitches with the house. All delays on the contractors side. It took a month to get a plumber....I'm not sure why but frustration is a main feeling around here with the builders. Looks like mid September it will be ready. (living room above)



One of the kids rooms the other 3 look about the same picture wise so I just added one.

4th of July

Momma's super heroes.

Camping leads to new computer!

If you have been wondering about us we have been having a great time but no way to update because my brand new laptop got drenched in water after this camping trip. No a kid did not dunk was the cooler which leaked all over it. Since I take online classes I had to go and buy a new one. Anyhow this was our last camping trip. All the kids had a blast. Oaklen absolutely loved the freedom of being able to ride his bike all around the camp ground! The little ones enjoyed fishing and a few long walks.

Brock caught the first fish. I'm sorry about picture quality I've been lazy lately and just catching pictures on my phone instead of my canon.

Tyler caught what looks to be bait? :)

Oaklen caught bait too. :)

We ran into a lot of rain on this trip. We only got to play in the sand for about 5 minutes before we were running to the car!

Addison did not catch a fish right away but she was determined. She sat out there with her daddy way past the time the boys had came in! It was not until the next day that she caught one!

Addison loves her bubby!

Other news:
Oaklen is in Texas for a few weeks visiting his grand parents. He's not kept in touch with me other than a quick goodnight. :( They must be keeping him busy!

The house is moving a long but a lack of plumber has put us behind by 3 weeks! Please oh please let a plumber get in there this week! It looks good from the outside but no plumbing or walls inside!

Definitely her daddy's toes!

Poor thing I don't know how she walks. Her second toe overlaps her third toe when she stands up. :)

The picnic

I'm thinking the boys will hate me later for the pink picnic, but they sure did enjoy it!

School is out for the summer! Oaklen finished with all A's and B's and I finished with another 4.0. I will try to get some of the last few weeks caught up on blogs and pictures in the next few days. Hope you enjoy!

A MONTH ??!!

Tyler student of the week!

Wow I can not believe it's been over a month since our last post. We have been non stop moving around here. Hitting the gym five days a week. The kids love going to the YMCA they go with us two days a week while the other three they are in preschool. Since they have gotten older it's much easier to get out and about with them in tow.

Oaklen is doing awesome in school! We are so relieved to have finally gotten the school system to change things up for him. It's been an all year struggle to finally get him switched into a smaller class room. Since he is ADD the large 3o something class he was in had him just drowning. It's such a shame that it took them all year doing paper work and meetings and documenting before they would finally help him but we are proud to say his progress report (with the exception of gym) had all 90's or higher!

Tyler is either having a tough time with the move or he has something going on health wise. I've taken him two different doctors for frequent urination but both times urinalysis and culture come back normal. They think possibly it's the stress of the move. He literally can go to the bathroom every five minutes and has been having accident when he once was completely potty trained.

Brock is also having an issue. It looks as though his hair is thinning. This I suppose may also be from the move although they both act and seem happy as can be. Brock is a thumb sucking hair twirler so the stress maybe causing more of this. I am wondering if the next move will be easier. I never though this would effect them so much!

Addison is a bossy little girl! She definitely is running these boys (including Oaklen). :) She tells you how it is and how you need to do it. She loves to draw and will sit down for hours at the table. She is a perfectionist. Love to help mommy fold wash cloths and towels. She is very bright for her age.

Adam spent last week and this coming week on day shift! It's been so nice to have him around in the evenings. We recently completed a 5K and Adam finished 8th in his age group with a time of 26:53! We have signed up for 3 more this month. We may have a little bit of an obsessive personality. :)

I finished the 5K in 31:28 ( I have shorter legs than Adam) Haha no honestly I am very proud to have ran the whole thing without walking and not once using my inhaler! My goal was to condition myself and my asthmatic lungs! I've also been studying non stop for school still carrying my untarnished 4.0. I've had a very tough quarter and have decided to take next a small break over the summer. I can not wait!

We are ready to be out of this rental! So far our land has a flat spot where the house will go and and a drive way. The non stop rain is putting us behind schedule. They need a few dry days to get the basement dug and poured. Maybe by next weekend **fingers crossed**
