Back to the Old Grind!

Well I have been back to work now for two weeks, that is the reason for the shortage of posts. It has been very hectic but everyone has taken to the transition well, except for me. It is great being back at school but I definitly miss staying home with the boys especially when the weather is still great for doing things outside. We have kept very busy by visiting grandparents that past two weekends and going to the state fair this past week. The boys loved the animals at the state fair. The twins, especially Caleb, would go right up to them and pet them. Eli was more passive about it.

The twins are getting so big these days. I went to pick them up from the sitter the other day and I saw them standing next to the other kids and I noticed how big they are. It makes me sad thinking about how fast it goes by. They are communicating great. I can make out most of what they say and they definitly let you know what they want even if it is through a tantrum. Caleb has been the very go happy one recently and Andrew has become a lot more aggressive with what he wants. It is amazing to see how they change.

Eli is such a big boy. He is wanting to go over to the neighbors to play on his own and really enjoys playing with the older kids. I wonder why, could be because he spends all his time with his little brothers. He is getting close to writing his name, he has been practicing a lot at the sitters. All he wanted to see at the state fair were the tractors. So when we saw them he was very excited. He also got to go to a Colts game with Dad which he loved. He would not stop talking about it. At Grandma Blocks he was quite the fish. He was swimming under water and refused to play in the baby pool anymore!

Besides that not much new. I have attached some pictures from the last few weeks before and the Colts game.

I love this picture of the boys, Noah Banks, Eli, and Caleb, playing outside at the house.
The boys enjoying lunch after playing in the horrible heat at Grandma and Grandpa McIntyres. All the twins were saying here was Grandpa, they were obsessed with him.
