Guess who's a movin' and a shakin'?

I think it is well past the time for an update from my household, what's going on...and who's doing what! Here is a photo of Caleb and Madelyn waiting at the top of the stairs for someone to follow... (don't mind my walls...we have been remodeling our home...~ever since we moved in, ~lol)
Who is coming up the stairs behind them? Oh yes....
Cole is on the move! For over a week now, Cole has decided that he needs to move up those stairs to see (for himself) what is up there. He is such a busy guy and is getting around very quickly lately! I can't believe how much he has grown and learned recently!
He is a drool-monger, and I always miscalculate when those chompers are due to show up. He has been drooling for months, and still no teeth coming in. He is a big eater lately, so that growth spurt must be happening. When he was in to the clinic about a week ago, he was #18.1 pounds.
So, he is on the mission toward those stairs...crawling faster and faster everyday.
He keeps close tabs on his older siblings. I am thinking he can't wait until he can do what they do!

Here he goes...

Look how he is on his tip-toes! How cute is that?? I love this picture...

Madelyn was needing some attention, so she ran over to the closet and said, "Take a picture of me like this..." with a pose. I think it is adorable! She is so sweet~

Caleb wanted some snap shots, too. He was posing "in the cool" for this one. He is now a home schooled pre-schooler. He is loving his home education, and he is currently working on his name and how to cut with scissors. I make a few different types of lines on paper and he cuts them (squiggly, straight, and angled). He is very active and busy....even hitting his head on the fireplace today leaving a puncture wound to his head. Poor guy! He is OK, it just looks like it hurts. I am hoping we won't have too many trips to the ER with him.
Nathaniel is in the 5th grade, and I am home schooling him this year! I am really excited about him being home and teaching him. This is an answer to prayer, and I pray that it is a great year. I am hoping to get a lot accomplished, have fun learning together, and being creative. Nathaniel has had a busy summer with his close friends, and he is missing his best friend who is a neighbor. His friend is on a different school bus and is attending a different school this year, so even if Nathaniel was in public school, they would miss each other. Nathaniel is very excited to be home schooled, and we are having fun so far. We are apart of a great co-op that will meet once a month. I love our mom's monthly meeting, because it is time together, time to pray for each other, and work together for the best interest of our kids and home schooling. I am excited for this year, and for the field trips we will do together.
You know how hard it is to get four kids to sit together and all look at the camera at the same time? After about 10 photos, I did get this one.
I love my four kids! I am really enjoying being a stay at home mom and home schooling them.
Not too much is new here, besides the home schooling this year. I had 3 more moles removed from my back. This time, I had quite a bit removed. I had one removed that was about an inch in length, and one that was 1 1/2 inches in length. Each of those moles were about 3/4 inch deep. The third mole was punched off. GOOD NEWS~ all the moles were benign!! Praise the Lord! One of the moles would have turned into cancer someday (I can't remember the term for it), but they got it all out.
We went to a threshing show last weekend~ Terry, the kids, my mother-in-law and I. I will have to post the pictures from that. It was a lot of fun, nice day out for it, and the kids had a blast! I had never been to one of those before. Anyway...time for bed~ well, way past my bedtime, but I miss blogging!
