In the throws of winter...ugh!

I really don't mind the snow, as long as I don't have to go out in it. With children it is pretty hard to not go out in it. So I do have a love-hate relationship with snow. I love how beautifully it blankets the ground; I hate how cold it is! That being said, it is currently snowing, and I have to go outside soon!
On to the important part of this blog: kids.
John is doing well in school and in life. He has settled on one girl. Her name is Taylor, and she is very sweet. She is a little thing of 5'3" or so. That isn't really so little, unless you consider John's height of 6'3"! John has learned to hate the snow as much as I do. (Sarah and Conor don't know any better, yet). He is a GREAT big brother and babysits alot for us while we are at work. He wants to get a job. As long as he works only on the weekend so daddy can watch the little ones, I have no problem with his getting a job.
Sarah started Celtic dancing and LOVES it. Her first performance is in the St Patrick's day parade on March 14th. She is more excited about being on TV than being in a parade. She's been in parades before, but the TV thing...blows her mind! I told her that there is only a chance she'll be on TV, but she is determined to be seen. She is doing well in school, although she is being bothered by a girl in her class. This girl seems jealous of Sarah's relationship with another friend, and so she breaks things belonging to Sarah and also does little things to upset Sarah. I have talked to the teacher about it, and so far nothing has come of it. I may need to go to the parents. This little girl only does things away from adults, so the teacher never notices anything.
Other than that, she is having a good time in school and with her friends.
Conor is still as cute as ever, and twice as funny! Always good for a laugh, he seems to show up just in time to make someone laugh when they need it most. He is very clever and loves to use the potty. (Except for #2; usually I will find him in the closet during that time). He can recite the alphabet and numbers to 17 and can count things to 10. He likes pirates, any sport, cars, teddy bears, and Mickey Mouse! He loves his brother and sister and misses them when they are not here. He thinks he is a "Child of Bob", instead of God. Who knows if God has an alias anyway? Maybe He is Bob, too!
That is where we are at this moment in time. Our family is well and full of love, so no matter what, we will always be together.
