I was really upset today about the girls legs. Its so much work getting them fitted, more than I thought it would be. That is just our life, everything more work than we think. We are going back tomorrow for more fitting. I am so proud of the girls, well all of our children. They are all doing so well. We have so much planned for this summer, its very overwhelming. I will just take one day at a time and know I am not super women;).

Jake has been sick with strep throat the last couple of days. So I have been caring for him and keeping the kids away from him. That is all we need is the kids to get sick with this. I thought today that I was coming down with it, but I am just fine.

The boys and I are headed for another field trip on Thursday. I can't believe that they have almost finished their first year of preschool. Time flies!!

Courtney has her final competition on Saturday. I am really sad for those to be over because I enjoy watching her dance so much. At her last competition her team was so good even the judges her dancing. Its so much fun for Courtney! When Courtney isn't dancing its very boring because we wait for hours until her next performance.

Here is another neat post from the guestbook:
I have received and started reading your book and it is amazing. You are truely an amazing person with an amazing family. Even though I don't know you personally, I feel like I do. I spent 9 weeks on bedrest up at University Hospital with my twins before they were born at 32 weeks. In fact I went home the day before you were admitted from what I read in your book. I wish I would have had the chance to get to know you. I have followed your story since before the separation of the girls. They truely are miracles and I am so happy that they are doing well. You and your family are always in my thoughts and prayers and I wish you the best. Thank you for sharing your story.

Love The Herrin's

  1. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your book! You all inspire me! I am in my teens & have followed your story since the seperation. Erin, I too have a sibling with down syndrome and at times things can be tough but God helps us step by step. I think all of your kids are adorable! I wish I lived nearby as I too would help like others. Thanks for writing the book & sharing ur story! I can't imagine the times you have faced & hope that I don't have to be in the same spot as you all when I get married but if I did I know god would be with me and I have a book with resources. Thanks again!
