Loads of photos

So much has happened since the last time I posted.   Here are some of the highlights:
Keira is now 4 months old and is getting big. She weighs 15lbs and 6 oz. I believe it is in the 75%. I forget her height but i think it was in the 50%.  She can almost sit up now and is sleeping very very well... she slept through the night again last night.  We have also started her on food, so she is eating a little bit of rice cereal and so for I think bananas are her favorite.
Next we have had Uncle Tim here for awhile for a nice visit.  I think the boys wore him out.  Everyday Jimmy and Mike made sure they got it some play fighting in along with some baseball and other types of playing.  Tim tried to teach the boys the concept of peace.  But for Mike it only lasted a few moments before war broke out again.
Jimmy has turned 6!!! I can not believe that he is that old already!! not more then 2 days after his birthday did he start school.  Yes that is right the oldest in both families has officially started Kindergarten.  That means it was my first child to start and the first grandchild, great grandchild, and nephew to start.  For me it was bittersweet with maybe a few tears.  Mikey is at a lost without his brother and wants to know if he gets to go school with Jimmy everyday.  Then Jimmy explains calmly that Mike can not go until he is five years old.  
But over all Jimmy is doing great in school and is having a fun time. He does come home everyday though and tell me that he did not do any learning that day.  I think they may have done such a good job with making learning to look like play.  Or at least that is what I hope!!!
 
Oh and we lost a tree to a lighting strike... I thought a bomb went off!
