Catch Up!

I haven't been keeping up with the blog very well for a couple reasons. 1 - I can't figure out some of the features on the iPad and we don't usually keep our laptop out anymore. 2 - We have just been WAY too busy lately! So, while the laptop is out, I thought I'd post a big entry with lots of pictures of what we've been up to lately!
The boys have loved being able to visit Daddy at the store and take rides around on the hand cart.
 Some days we have to spend the morning playing in a bubble bath for a change of pace.
 Other days they play with their "instruments" while I'm busy baking. It gets pretty loud at times!
When they don't get along this is the time out spot. Jonas likes keeping Elliott company whenever he's stuck here.
Malachi built a pinewood derby car for Cub Scouts.
Adeline and Elliott got to come cheer for Malachi's bus at the race.
His bus won a couple heats but didn't place overall. However, he did win 2nd place best of show!
Elliott is still crazy and silly as ever.
Elliott and Kylee have been getting along very well lately and currently love playing super heroes. Poor Jonas and Bryson are always the monsters they have to fight!
 Sometimes we have a full house and lunchtime is the only time it's close to calm and quiet.
 Jonas loves to climb on EVERYTHING! My cakes are very carefully guarded nowadays!
 I was blessed to experience the birth of my friend, Christina's, new little guy, Silas Edward.
 Homework, projects, spelling words and math facts keep us busy every afternoon.
 Malachi officially earned his tiger scout badge.
Jonas is busy learning lots of new things, specifically how to be an Allsop boy!
Many apologies to those of you who look forward to our posts! I hope this catches you up on our lives and I'll try to do a better job of keeping up over the next few months...which are sure to be as busy as the past few!

You are pretty buys it seems. Looking forward to warm weather and playdates and Pa and T's pool.
LOVE the pic of Jonas climbing on the oven. It looks like a familiar sight.
