We are moving today!

We are moving into our house today! We found out Thursday night that we could move in today. Eric got home yesterday, in time to move us. We are excited to have our own place again. We have been staying at my parents house while Eric was in California. We have spent a lot of time swimming and playing. Trav with a new hat and his silly face he makes all of the time.
Aubs driving the power wheels with no hands.
Aubs pushing Trav around in a stroller.

Love their smoothie faces.
We tried to get some good pictures this week. It is pretty frustrating trying to get them all to look.

Handsome Tann. Love this boy!
Trav is the hardest one to get a good picture of right now.
Andrew is getting so big. He has gotten a new tooth and has 2 more that are about to poke through.
Beautiful Aubs.
Each of the kids ended up with a picture where they were doing a silly face. I think they were tired of taking pics.

Aubree is really going to miss her cousins Leah and Claire. She cried when we left them.

Amy and Kirk took us boating last weekend. The kids had so much fun.
Tanner on the boat.
I love the look on Aubs face.
Andrew loved walking in the sand.
Aubs and Leslie after jumping into the river.
Tanner and Travis tubing with Sara and Leslie. They loved it.
Aubree and Tann playing cute in the water.

We miss our Dad!

I had my camera on the wrong setting and was hurrying so quick to get pics that I didn't notice till I was done. Now the edit looks all grainy. Anyways, Eric has been gone a week and will be back late Friday. We sure miss him, but he is enjoying it and learning a lot. We should have a move in date by the time Eric gets home (hopefully!). Thanks to everyone for your help.

Still Waiting

So, we still don't have a place. We kept our stuff in the moving van for another 3 days hoping another place would pull through, but the place ended up being a 2 bedroom . I can't imagine all 5 kids in one bedroom, so we ended up putting stuff in storage. We have been staying at Eric's parents in Wenatchee taking a couple trips over to find a place. We are waiting on applications and will hopefully have stuff figured out by the end of this month. Eric left today for 10 days for his first two externships in LA, so it is best for me not to think about our future or I get sort of overwhelmed between taking care of the kids, being homeless, and being almost 34 weeks pregnant. I am so grateful for our families and all their help.
Eric has been wanting to take the kids camping before his trips, but we haven't been able to yet. So, last night we got everything ready and the sites were too expensive and it was too windy. Anyways, we ended up "camping" at my in-laws. The kids loved sleeping in sleeping bags, roasting marshmallows and hotdogs (in the fireplace), and making banana boats.
Trav with his umbrella hat.
They had some flooding at Eric's parents house and Aubs did her part cleaning up.

Tanner with his "baby." Aubree and Tanner are always playing house together. Aubree was pushing Tanner and the baby in bike stroller.
Andrew is almost 10 months old and is as nice as ever. He is all over the place.
