Updates

I have been a little sporadic in my posts, but a few fun things have happened that I wanted to share!



Our little Hallie girl started pre-school. I (as usual) am trying to save a buck, so there is a group of 5 moms (6 kids, we have a set of twins in there!)and we are rotating houses. So 2 days a week, for 2 hours she goes. She was SO excited on her first day of school, and is quite the student. Hallie has always been my "learner"...she loves to read, write and name her letters, and watches Anna do her homework. I am so glad that she has her little pre-school! It is weird to have a few hours to myself (Linc naps during that time). I think that I could get used to having my kids at school!





On Saturday night we took the kids to the Diamondbacks game. They had won tickets from the library summer reading program (remember that?). They have been over-the-top excited to go, and all day waited anxiously to leave. So we drive downtown, Randy parks, wait in line to get the tickets, haul the gang inside (all the while trying to keep 3 children under the age of 6 together and avoid the mobs of people), take everyone potty, climb up to the nosebleeds with the slow-pokes (they are library tickets, remember?), climb over people to our seats, sit down. Whew. We couldn't have been sitting more than 5 minutes before Anna insisted that she had to go potty. Down we go again, use the potty, climb back up, climb over people, sit down. Needless to say, we only lasted 3 innings. Anna kept asking when the game was going to start. I had to tell her that the game already DID start...this, my dear, is baseball...not a Hannah Montana concert! Hallie was good until we ran out of food to feed her. Linc loved clapping when everyone else did, and wanted to make friends with all of the nacho eating/beer drinking fans around us. Chalk it up to another McBride adventure! I hope Linc likes sports so Randy gets to go to sports and actually stay and watch the game!

Fun! Too bad it didn't last too long - I, too, think baseball games are a little boring, but it's still fun to get out and eat nachos! :)

It's so great to be able to see what you guys are up to. We live so close and yet I never see you. I'm glad all your kiddos are feeling better! I can't believe both girls are going to school now, I still think of them as babies.

Is that a bobble head in Anna's hand? Why didn't you mention that detail in your blog? he he
I LOVE the pic of Linc! super cute and super funny. By the way... I will be sure to puff out my belly and get a good picture for you soon :)

It's crazy how fast kids grow up! That's great that Hallie is in a preschool group, I'm sure she is loving it. Thanks for the fun picts and stories!

As a mommy I know exactly how this feels to go through such an adventure and then only be there for 30 minutes if lucky :) Love your blog and love the pics of the kids. Brianne

Amber! hey I found you! How are you doing? It has been way too long. Look how cute (and big) your family is getting!

Benjamin LOVES pre-school. Though its different than my original plans, our little pre-school is exactly right for us and I'm sure grateful to be a part of it. :) So thanks! Hallie is a sweethart-- she was a calming influence with our "energetic" boys-- so patient. I really enjoyed teaching them. :)

Hallie is such a good example for the "rowdy" preschool bunch. She can get a little wild though and have a good time with the best of them. I'm glad she's in our class:)

Crazy! It seems just yesterday that Anna was born and now the girls are both in school! Anyway we miss you and hope to see you soon!

Love, Katie
