Introduction to the Houghlings
These pictures were taken over Memorial day weekend. I can't even begin to tell you how fast these kids are growing! I just look at them and want to cry. The twins will officially finish up their elementary school lives tomorrow. They will be attending the highschool next year! I am just not ready for this. It is really a bittersweet thing, as a mother anyway, to watch them become little adults. They are becoming so independent and (at times anyway) responsible. That makes me so proud, but it's hard to not be needed as much. But just when I start to think that I have this whole "big kid" thing figured out and I start to give them a little bit more freedom and independence, they act like two year olds! Hormones! You gotta hate them! Look out West Shamokin! The Houghs are coming your way! Jake will be right on their heels as usual! Luckily though, he still has one more year at Dayton. He will be there to help Isaac make his debut into the elementary arena! With both Jake and Isaac there, Dayton Elementary will never be the same! We are going to try and really enjoy this summer together. I know that once school starts again in the fall, everyone will be heading their seperate ways. The older the kids get, the busier their social lives get and the less we see them! I'm just going to try and soak it all in! Hannah, Gianna and Noah, aka the "little ones" (Isaac has officially been bumped up to big kid rank now that he will be going to school.)are all getting bigger too, so playgrounds and parks are a great place for famly trips now. Noah has no fear and will take on any slide or rock wall! (or at least any slide that I allow him to...he is only 1 1/2!) Gianna is a tube slide kind of girl. She likes to crawl up inside and just hang out. Hannah is more of a swing and see-saw girl. She likes to feel the breeze in her hair! Like I said before...It's going to be a busy summer!Lots of fun...lots of food... and lots of sunscreen! Stay tuned!
