Josh and I drove down to Illinois to visit Joe, Mary (my sister), and the kids. We had so much fun with these rascals. (Thanks fam for the great visit!)
Our niece Lily is four going on fifteen. She can carry on a conversation while using words like "actually" and "intelligent." Unbelievable! She takes good care of her little sister and loves to play mommy with here little siblings. She's super excited about kindergarten, a Barbie lunch box, and recess. I was amazed when she was interested in my explaining Communion to her. She just asked Josh and me to be the ring bearer and flower girl in her wedding! We're super excited!
Jacob is three and all boy. He's super excited about having a baby brother "Jakey-Baby." Mary's pregnant! He's relieved that it's not another sister. Hopefully the ultrasound isn't wrong. :) He's super sweet but a terror. He loves to be chased around the hall and living room (A.K.A "the race track"). Wow.
Hannah is one and loves puppies, dolls, and being Lily. She reminds me of myself. She definitely has another world that she spends a lot of her day. She desperately wants to be like Lily. I feel for her since I was a little Mary for half my life. :)
