Now that our family is complete (although it is still missing a dog) I thought it would be a great time to start a "blog" and let all our friends and family around the world know what is going on in "The Rogers Neighborhood". Joel is getting ready to turn 8 years old in about 12 days. I cannot BELIEVE it. How can my little boy be turning 8! He is getting so big. He is in second grade now and got his first report card with actual grades on it. And can you believe it, he got all A's. He definitely got that from his daddy, not me. He loves school and has made some great friends. Riley is now in 4K and loves going to school. Although her days are only half days, she does go Monday-Friday. She loves her teachers and is learning alot. The other day she surprised us all when we were having dinner and she started saying the Pledge of Allegiance all by herself. WOW!
Jesse is almost 3 1/2 and loves being silly. He is the joker in the family so his nick name "Jester" really does fit. It is alot of fun to talk with him and see what all he has to say. We just have to worry about him when he goes to school-I already feel sorry for his teachers:) Our little Josiah is getting big too. I can't believe he is almost 6 months old. We thought our kids were easy, but he is on the top of the list. He started sleeping through the night at 2 weeks. I guess being child number 4 you really do have to be patient. I can't wait to see what he is going to be like. A lot of people say that he looks different then the other children. Joel, Riley and Jesse all love Josiah (or Joelsiah as Jesse calls him) very much. They all want to hold him and play with him.
God has blessed me. He has given me a great husband and great kids. I can't wait to see what He has in store for us.
To be continued...

Hey zusie,

Het wordt wat moeilijk voor mij om in het engels te reageren dus ik doe het gewoon zo.
Ik moet zeggen dat ik het heel leuk vind om dit te lezen en tegelijkertijd realiseer ik me weer dat ik jullie heel erg mis.Weet je dat het alweer 3 1/2 jaar geleden is dat wij elkaar voor het laatst gezien hebben!!
Het word toch weer tijd dat we op vakantie komen.
Dat wordt hard sparen.
Heel veel liefs van ons allemaal!!!
