We interrupt this program to bring you...

another technical issue. Just kidding. It seems the last two years have been plagued with technological issues.  One right after another. The enemy knows that technology is my connection to family and friends back home and that I thrive on those connections, so he has tried repeatedly to steal my joy by circumventing my connections. He has been successful at times, but never victorious.

My husband is a good man and even in the midst of his own stress, he makes time to help me with my computer issues. So, I'm up and running again for now and I have birthday pictures to post as soon as I can get them uploaded. The internet issues are a completely separate problem over here. :)

Birthday pics....yes, the twins are three. We survived the twos and are headlong into threes! They are growing by leaps and bounds and talking and learning exponentially. They are so fun and so tiring all at once!!

Our Prince is doing well in his first semester of college. Busy. Oh so busy, but that's good for him! Double majoring! Music and computer science. He recently sent us a snippet of a recording he did of himself composing in a practice room, just messing around. It was beautiful, and so soothing to my heart. A chip off the block. If you want me to email it to you, let me know. He comes home at Christmas and we are counting down the days! If you have his number, please text him some encouragement. That's his love language, besides HUGS. We know that at this point in the semester it begins to wear on you and it's challenging to finish strong. Share the love!

Our oldest Princess is coming up QUICKLY on 13. Yikes. Where has time time gone? She is almost as tall as me (which admittedly isn't that tall, but when you are looking eye to eye with your's TALL!). She is so funny and beautiful. Growing and maturing into such a lovely young lady!

The twins have started going half days to National preschool. It is good for all involved, except maybe the teachers! LOL.  I enjoy the respite, they love going to school like big girls, but the teachers are the ones who have to struggle through the language barriers of dealing with three year olds! So far, it's gone pretty well. They are adorable as they mix two languages together to communicate. I love to hear little ones try to talk anyway, but when they speak two languages intermixed, they say some really cute things!

We have recently made the acquaintance of some African friends, two guys and two girls. Our littles love them! It's a beautiful thing to watch the natural connection. Amazing, really.

The hubs is busy as ever. It is a good thing he requires less sleep than me. He is able to accomplish some tasks late into the night or early in the morning when I am wiped out. His girls adore him. All of them. I tell him it's a tough life he has to be surrounded by so much adoration and love. He says, "Somebody's gotta do it." *wink*

Well, enough for now. Hopefully, I can be here regularly now that the littles are in school and my computer is working again.

Be blessed,

So good to hear from you again. Been missing this connection. I would love to hear the Prince's recording. I fully expect it to be as good as the King's. I don't have his number, but you are right about this being a stressful time of the year. We are entering into the holiday and graduation part of the semester and things just seem to snowball from here on out. Tell him to keep his eyes focused on the goal (graduation) and the goalie (Dad).
