Changes at the Hatches

Life will never be the same around the Hatch house starting in October.  We are adding a new little "hatchling" and couldn't be more excited.  Madelynn talks non-stop about her brother or sister and how we have to buy them clothes and baby boy bottles.  (Her sitter is also having a baby in July so there is a lot of "baby talk" in her life right now).  She is so excited, not that I am really sure she understands, but I know she will be an amazing big sister.  She doesn't seem old enough to be the "big sister", isn't she still my little baby?  Well, don't you dare let her hear you call her a baby because she will correct you in no time.  "I am not a baby!  I am a big girl!"  or if I tell her she is cute she says, "No, I Madelynn!"  My brother-in-law says we are going from having a smart pet (our 1st kid) to an actually family, which always makes me laugh and is probably very true. 
I am so thankful for this blessing that we have been praying for for quite some time. 
"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD."1 Samuel 1:27–28
A baby is always a blessing, but I know this baby couldn't come at a better time for our family to focus on the wonderful blessings God has given u,s even during these difficult times, and to remind us that life does go on.  As one life ends another begins and that is something we have to thank Him for. 
So, here we go on our next adventure.  I will no longer be coaching, but I will be the mom of two kidos...a whole new chapter....

(Please keep this of facebook for now.  I have student's parents on there and I am not quite ready for them to know...although I know we live in a small town and it will happen.  Thanks)

Spring Break fun

Making Playdough and having fun?

Who has the Type A personality?  Madelynn, believe it or not.

3 kids in a tub. 

Fun at the jumpy place!

Playing in Durango.  Their imaginaitons are really developing.

My little bakers.

Watching them bake.

Such a little cuttie!
 We had such a great time during Spring Break.  There were only a few fights, along with some tears, very few time outs, and just one night of throwing up....oh, and the kids did well also :)  Just kidding.  Kennedy did get sick the last night, not sure what it is about her trips to NM, poor thing.  It is just amazing to see how cute they are together.  Madelynn loved playing with Brayden and helping out with him.  Both girls were so excited about the trip, it was all they talked about for days leading up to it. 

Jess and I were both tired by the end, but had such a good time. I can't wait until we can get them together again.
