This summer we began the extra activities. Knowing that our time in the boonies was coming to an end we decided to let the girls take horse-riding lessons. Even though the pic is a pony they actually did ride the full-size horses and loved it. Ben and Tally want to take soccer, but timing for that has been difficult, hopefully that will come soon.
I was on a sort of bed-rest this summer, so we didn't get out much, but we tried to hit the pool every now and then! We're going to miss this pool... mom & tot times were the best discovery ever... we virtually had the whole pool to ourselves!
Back to school! The kids were really excited, especially Tally starting Kindergarten.
Before:After: Emily Elizabeth de Hoyos... our 5th child to be 6 lbs 13 oz. Born August 17 at way too early in the morning! Don't let the smile fool you, this one was not a fun delivery, so glad it was over and that I don't ever have to do that again! After weekly shots and 9 months trying to keep her in, we were induced in order to have her before dad had to take off to a new job in Texas. Even still, 7 kids, no epidurals... boo-yah!
