Welcome to Griffin Timothy Hornschemeier, born 2/23/12 at 12:37 am. Weighing in at 8 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long, a big boy :) Congratulations to Brad, Carla and Dylan on the newest addition to their family!
Monday was a fun day for the Kandell boys. We went to visit our friends Lauren and Raven at their farm! Lauren is about 11 weeks into her pregnancy with baby # 2 and just as busy as ever. The boys got to help feed the pygmy goats, mama hen, their guinea hens, and duck as well as their dogs and cat :) Daniel got to see what fresh eggs look like and feel them too. Daniel also got to paint pictures with Raven and play with her kitchen, and we even got to see the family's new hoop house, where the kids got to make it rain inside. We had so much fun, and can't wait to visit again soon. We are starting some new things in the house here as well, Daniel and I both need a little more structure, so we now have chore cards and school cards that he gets to move around as things get done. This seems like a good way to keep him constantly busy, he still gets downtime, but it should help with his wild child behavior :)
We will also have our home brew of Dopplebach ready when we all get together for Joseph's birthday party next weekend! Brian finished bottling his beer on Monday night :)
