I am sorry for not posting anything lately. We have been so busy with everything up here that I have literally not had time to be on a computer. We have had so many things that have happened this past year so let me just highlight a few of the things that have happened in the year. January -- We had tons of snow. Nathanael turned 6 months old and Isaiah continues to learn on a daily basis. February -- Still more snow and we decided that I should begin doing the bookkeeping for Birchtree. Nathanael also started scooting/crawling. March -- Still snowing in Maine during this month. I finished with my Bachelor's degree the first weekend of March and I am relieved to be done with that. We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary this month by going out to eat as a family. We can't wait to be closer to home so we can enjoy the luxury of being home to visit so we can go out on dates...haha. We also celebrated Easter during this month which made our anniversary all the more special since we were married the day before Easter in 2005. We celebrated by having friends over for a barbeque. Alex cooked the meat outside and we hid Easter eggs on top of the snow that was still outside. It was very cold. I stayed inside that day for most of the day. The only time I went outside was to crack a cascarone on Alex's and Isaiah's head. April -- This month consisted of a few more snowfalls and then by the end of the month we went through "mud season". We managed to squeeze a few good days out of the month and took the kids out for walks on the path and even made it to a circus. The kids had so much fun. May -- The month of May has been by far our busiest month so far. I walked the stage for my Bachelors degree in Accounting and Alex received his Associates degree in Business Administration. To say the least it was a wonderful experience and we got to share it with our families. Both of our parents and my brother and sister made it up here for graduation. We also got to spend Mother's Day with our mothers. It was so special. We were sad to see them leave. As soon as they left though my hands got even busier when Nathanael learned to crawl up the stairs completely. He finally got the hang of crawling on all fours instead of scooting like an army recruit. For Memorial Day weekend we went on our first Benavides camping trip. The kids enjoyed checking out the tent and had fun on our nature trails. So that is pretty much the update on our family for the year 2008. I will try my hardest to be better about posting updates and just posting on a regular basis. I hope you all have a great day and I hope you enjoyed the photos.
