With the thought of the new homeschooling year looming in the not-so-distant future, I have been highly motivated to get these babies sleeping through the night and on to a more rigid schedule. I spent several nights "sleeping" on the nursery floor, putting pacifiers back into mouths and rubbing restless backs. But after some persistence and MUCH prayer my three little miracles are finally doing it. In fact, last night they slept from 10:00 - 8:15!!! Praise the Lord!!! On top of that, I'm pretty sure that Drake and Keira could have slept longer, but TAERIK WANTED FOOD. And in our house, when one eats, they all eat. :) We are grateful to have finally reached this major milestone. Smiles all around!

In other news, our family enjoyed a wonderful night of memories on Saturday night. Each year the realtor who sold us our house hosts a free family fun night at Rock River Rapids, complete with hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill. Griffen and Rhys LOVED all the swimming! This year, Griffen was even tall enough for the lily pads, water slides and even the diving boards. My little....uh-hum, I mean big fellow even braved the high dive. The only disappointment was that our camera wasn't fast enough to capture the moment. We had a great time and can only imagine the festivities with three more little swimmers someday!
Just a couple more random pictures of regular, day-to-day life at the Fuller's house. Nothing unusual. Just a driveway full of neighborhood bikes, a crazy 8-year old coming up with new tricks, and babies everywhere.
