someone captures my feelings! Before we added Teme to our family, everyone with a larger family told us..."after three it doesn't really matter". Implied to me was doesn't add stress, doesn't get more difficult, etc. When reading a Reader's Digest my mom passed on to me I found my feelings captured.

"If you want to know what it's like to have a fourth kid, just imagine you're drowning and someone hands you a fourth kid."

Please don't be offended, it was on the LAUGH!:) page!

Big differences from last Halloween.
Last year Teme went in a wheelchair as he
wasn't really used to crutches yet.
This year, he and a friend went trick or treating
on their own! No walking aids at all.

Apparently the Halloween dance was lame,
but they sure look good. Especially in Dad's hat and
Mom's boots. Haki's hat is Teme's from Ethiopia.
Teme wasn't too sure about the whole sharing thing.
