Naps and an update

We love taking naps around here. I just love Courtney's post nap hair-style in the photo below. We are not used to these early mornings after a sleep-in-every-morning summer.
We're  not quite into a routine yet. It seems like the more I try to get a schedule down,  the more chaotic it gets. I'm starting to think that maybe schedules aren't for me.
We are so ready to welcome the fall. After all, it is my favorite. I just love the fresh, crisp, cool air. I love the sight and smell of anything pumpkin or apple baking. I love the holidays. I am ready to start this new chapter, and ring in fall 2012.
Marshall is in soccer and Ben is teaching him karate. The girls are taking dance from the city. They hate it. And Myriam stays at home close in my arms. I love it.
Marshall and Madison are now enjoying 3rd and 1st grade. It was a little struggle at first.
Madison has 2 hairline fractures on her left arm. She and her friend were chasing Marshall. Her friend accidentally stepped on her foot while they were running, and Mady went tumbling down. She skidded up her knees and arm pretty good. She's a trooper.
Courtney loves preschool. She has her backpack that has wheels so she can pull it along, so she is happy. After seeing a girl from Madison's preschool class have one of those, she's had her mind set on getting one. She has been asking for one for 2 years now.
Myriam is so fun. She loves to smile. We all love making her laugh and smile. She is such a happy baby. We are blessed to have her part of our family. She is getting ready to start crawling any day now. Oddly enough, I think she'll be crawling before she sits up alone without support.
And Ben and I are just trying to keep our brains functioning as we take on the demanding task of raising 4 kids. But we love it.
Well that pretty much sums it up.
