Ski School

We signed all the kids up for ski school this year. I took Stella and Fred up on Thursdays after kindergarten & preschool. Dan took Chloe up on Saturdays (I forgot to have him take a picture). Chloe & Stella are pros. Fred improved drastically.
Since I'm pregnant I don't have a pass. But Dan likes to take two kids up at a time. Chloe can get off the lift by herself and Dan can help one kid at a time. Maybe next year he can handle all three. Maybe I should get some skis so I can help out.

This reminds me...Fred is going through a phase right now. He doesn't want to go anywhere without me or Dan. Not church, preschool, babysitters, ski school...It is so annoying. He never went through this phase as a baby. It started part way through ski school. He throws a fit when I have to drop him off. I have no idea why he started this. I always leave him and he recovers but it sure is a hassle.

And another thing about Fred. We have 1:00 church. EVERY Sunday he falls asleep during sharing time. His teacher always hands off a sleeping boy at the end, telling us he is "the sweetest thing."

Fred always wants someone to lay down with him at night. Sometimes I really enjoy it. He is a funny kid. Sometimes we are not in the mood and wish he would just go to bed. So we let the girls put him to bed. They take turns sleeping with him in his toddler bed (which is just a crib mattress for those who don't know).
(Blogger thinks it knows how I want my pictures positioned.)

Every morning he joins me in bed. I love it. Sometimes Stella does if she gets up early enough. Chloe only does on weekends--she is way to concerned about being late to waste time laying around. Fred always brings his horses. They are very affectionate. I get at least one kiss a day. One horse is superior to the other because it has a "popped up tail". I can't tell the difference but the tail is Fred's favorite part and he knows which is which.

It's a BOY!
(His hand is by his face. Cute. And see his boy part?)

I'm very happy to have two girls and two boys. I'm glad Fred will have a brother. I'm glad I have been able to have children. I feel very blessed. But this must be the last time.
1. Ugh. Pregnancy is such a drag. My face is already fat. I wish I could go into hiding during the last four months of pregnancy.
2. I'm old.
3. A family of six fills two rows on an airplane.
