FINALLY I am blogging again!! Wow, its been a while. Things have been going well here. Over the last month or so....

We went to Frederic over Mother's Day. We spent a bunch of time at the school playground in the great weather. Matea is getting more and more brave and coordinated every day - it is fun to see the progress in her. We had preschool screening this week and although I was not surprised by anything in the results, it was funny for me to see that she scored TWO points ABOVE the "minimum" for her motor skills!

We went to a Twins game with the Schunks, Jen, Brandon, and Robby. It was FUN. The weather was PERFECT, our seats were great, the kids did fantastic, there was lots of scoring...but the Twins lost. With the way their season is going it sure wasn't a surprise, but it was still disappointing.

Adlee is doing great. She has been sleeping through the night since she was 8 weeks old which, obviously, is fantastic. She is growing well, although she is still little! She weighed a whopping 8# 1oz at her 2 month check up. She has started cooing/talking a LOT and we can get her to respond to us pretty easily. I am enjoying her more and more every day.
And weight loss update: I have lost a total of 5 pounds in the last 6 weeks. So, I'm making progress. I was hoping for more. I have been exercising 5-6 days a week but I am going to really start watching my calories now!

Our last bit of big news is that we are moving to Champlin in July! After months of prayer and contemplation we decided to pull the trigger. Our house has been for sale since early April and we found a place in Champlin 2 weeks ago. The new house is not in the location or the style of house we were thinking we'd be, but this just seems right. There were a number of cool factors that are leading us to believe that this is the place God has for us. It will work really well for Aaron to keep his business in the home for a few more years and the price couldn't be beat! We are now trusting that God has the sale of this home in his hands. As I've mentioned to a few friends, here is where we get the chance to actually trust God, and not just talk about trusting Him! :-) If you know of anyone looking for a place in Duluth, send them our way!
