Family update

I promised a little family update so here it is. Our family is doing well – we are super busy – but I know everyone is so that’s no surprise.

Bryce – This little guy is about 15 months now. He has thinned down a little since he was born mostly because he’s so active. Bryce is still a big boy for his age and seems strong as an ox. Wrestling with Drew, running from mom, jumping on the trampoline and throwing food seem to be some of his favorite activities.

Alyssa – She started pre-school at Bethel Lutheran just last week. She goes 2 days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, and really loves it. Alyssa started dance class here in Morton as well and seems pretty pumped about that. She is getting tall and skinny and really getting a nice little attitude (kinda like mommy). She loves to ride her scooter, play with her friends in the neighborhood, play with her makeup, and watch movies.

Drew – I did a school update last week so take a look at that if you like. But other than school, Drew is doing well. He seems to be a tall kid and is starting to take a liking to some sports. For some reason, right now he states that he doesn’t want to play basketball or football because the coaches yell too much. He prefers soccer and baseball. So we’ll see where that all goes. Actually he asked if he could take golf lessons the other day – haha. I’m sure he’ll get into something as he’s a competitive little dude. He loves to ride his scooter and bike, play with the neighborhood kids, chill in his room with his cars and stuffed animals, and watch Disney Channel shows.

Sarah – She is turning into super woman. Sarah decided to watch kids from her home this fall/winter so she could make a little income yet still stay home with Bryce. So she has her hands full with that. Lots of families took her up on this and she has a nice schedule of before school, all day and after school kids. Let me just say, I COULDN’T DO IT! I was home one day while all these kids were around and almost lost my mind 🙂 But she loves it and takes great care of these kids. She has also been doing a lot of stuff with her girl friends as of late. Pedicures, working out at Golds, etc…

Ryan – Same old for me. Working hard and coming home to hang out with the kids. Football started up so I love this time of year. Doing a little recreational sports betting here or there just to make things interesting. I have been going to Gold’s Gym as well trying to workout both my upper and lower body and include some cardio. It’s been awhile since I’ve touched a weight.

So that’s that.  As for pictures, I try to keep Facebook updated with some pictures so check that out if you want to see the family photos.  A Knuppel family update in about 4 paragraphs. How is everyone else?

Typical Knuppel Saturday

Our Friday and Saturday were pretty uneventful this weekend. Which was NICE! With Sarah’s parents and our parents out of town, we had our Aunt Dana come in and watch Bryce on Friday night while we took the other two kids out for a “special evening”. Aunt Dana loves babies and has basically begged to watch him anytime 🙂 Thank you!!!

This was nice to get out and about without the baby for a change. It was like old times. We took Drew and Alyssa to the Park and then out to Culvers for some Ice Cream. Fun! Bryce was good for Dana so that was great.

On Saturday we didn’t do much. I mowed which was much needed. Then we had the Stock’s down to play in the water and grill out for lunch. Those kids love playing with each other. Afternoon was nap time and then evening was the “Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds” concert on the Disney Channel. Woohoo! How was your weekend?
