I did it! (actually posted something!)

I will call this the first update (of probably a few over the next several days...) beginning with stuff from April of 2013!  Being a homeschooling, part-time working mother of 5, this is the best I can do!   Pictures are taken from cameras and cell not all the pictures are very good quality.

Here's a monarch cocoon on the side of our house.  If you look closely, there are gold specks on it!

This is the first (and only!) cake I've decorated since my cake decorating class.  I enjoy doing it, but it's SO time-consuming and stressful to devote your time to when you have 5 children underfoot... It was "Nyan Cat" for Veronica's 6th birthday.

 I don't even remember who did this to Julian's hair... I'm guessing Michael or one of the girls did it.  But it's funny.

 Visiting with Aunt Jeanne and cousin Jada!

 The monarch butterfly after coming out of its cocoon!  Notice the other cocoon behind it!
 Julian crashed out on the floor :)

OK, so here's the 4 Aldana siblings... about 14 years after another picture that was taken of the four of them.  I SO need to get the other picture of it, scan it and put it next to this one!  So funny.
So, I don't know what's going on with the video... it's not working.  I'm going to leave it up for now and get Michael to see if he can figure it out.

They're coloring 4th of July printables.

Josephine after ONE week of swimming lessons!  She learned to swim rather well in such a short time!

This girl climbs on EVERYTHING!  I'm just waiting to rush her to the ER for a broken bone.

There's more pictures!  Next time I get a chance to go post them, I will!  Maybe in a day or two.
