Hello Mommy and Daddy,

I wish I had some recent pictures to show you of the children, but with life being so hectic I just haven't had the time to grab my this is a short update on the children.

Hi Mommy and Daddy,
We're doing very well here with Grammy and Grampie! I (Jordan) am learning so much at school and love every single minute of it. I'm even learning to read a little bit. I know some words by sight, like...the, you, if and it's all starting to make sense to me! And guess what? Josslyn and Brielle are starting to potty train! Well, at least at bath time. They both sit on the potty to tinkle and Josslyn even made an alligator in the potty tonight! They are getting so grown up.

Hi mommy, this is Josslyn. Grammy bought us a ton of new books today at the store. We get to find the things that move and we listen to the I love you book you and daddy recorded for us at bedtime. And, mommy!!! I went pewps in the potty tonight - oh I'm getting so grown up. Grammy says she isn't holding her breath, but I don't know what that means. I am putting on my own sock and shoes now and mostly on the right feet. I love to take my diaper off so that I can sit on the potty. I'm learning so many new words, but mostly they come out sounding backwards.

Hi mommy, this is Brielle. Grammy says I'm the lovie girl because I just love to give everyone a hug. I love school, I love the other kids and I really love my teacher, Ms. Laila! She is so sweet and kind. Grammy says I'm the best tooth brusher this side of the Mississippi!!! I wonder what she means by that because I don't know which side is which! Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you that I'm very afraid of bugs. On the ants outside I've learned to stomp on them, but the fly's...oh they scare me out of my skin. Grammy tries to smack all the flies in the house, but I don't like to play outside because of the fly's. When she smacks them she picks them up in a tissue and Josslyn and I get to see them dead, but Josslyn is the brave one and she puts the tissue in the trash. I'm much to afraid to touch the tissue, but I love to see that they're dead! Grammy keeps saying it's going to be a long summer. Hmmmmmm!!

Well, we're getting ready to go to bed now so we all send you many hugs and kisses. Please keep safe and come home soon!

Hugs and kisses,
Jordan, Josslyn and Brielle
