This is our Kylie

A couple of nights ago, we went up to check on the kids before we went to bed and we found that Kylie fell asleep after she had put her shoes on. We weren't surprised, though. She always falls asleep with toys and books in her bed.

By day, she's a sweet, wonderful little girl.

Moffitt brothers begin fall semester

(ANYWHERE, USA) - By Jonathan Moffitt. Brandon and Steven started the 2008-2009 school year recently, in the 4th grade and kindergarten, respectively. Brandon,began classes on August 18. Steven, did not start until August 25 due to student assessment tests the week before.
Teaching Brandon will be Ms. Smith*, a recent graduate of Brigham Young University. In kindergarten, Steven will learn from Ms. Wilson.
"My favorite part of school is learning to read," said Steven.
In the 4th grade, Brandon enjoys math. "But spelling is a close second and homework is dead last," Brandon said.
After a struggling with his teacher during 3rd grade, Brandon is optimistic for this year's campaign.
"My teacher seems much more organized than last year," Brandon said. "She's also nicer. The school year has kicked off quite nicely. I can almost guarantee straight A's."
A few doors down, Steven is embracing his new daily activity.
"I'll miss my mom from time to time, but I can't wait to learn. I have to take advantage of kindergarten because I know 1st grade is just around the corner."
At home, Jamie Moffitt is adjusting to life with only half of the children with her during the day.
"It's wierd," Jamie said. "I had to fight back tears when I dropped Steven off at his class. At the same time, though, I'm glad to spend some quality time with my girls."
Kylie and Kaylin Moffitt could not be reached for comment.

She's having a baby!

That's right boys and girls, Jamie is pregnant with number 5! She's about 6 weeks along right now. The due date is late March, so that means the baby will come around the first or second week. I just hope it's healthy and Jamie doesn't have to go on bed rest again. Since we have 2 boys and 2 girls we are probably going to get surprised on this one. The Holy Ghost has told me that it will be a boy, but Jamie doesn't believe me. She feels like it's going to be a girl. Of course the children are similarly divided. Brandon and Steven want a baby brother. Kylie and Kaylin want a baby sister. I suppose we could have twins and there could be a boy and a girl, but I'm rooting for just one or the other. I'll take it has a huge compliment from the Lord if he thinks I'm ready for a two for one deal.

If you have any good name ideas, feel free to suggest them. For a not so small fee, we will name the baby after you. The rate will depend on how much we like your name.

In lieu of gifts, please donate to the Baby Moffitt Fund.
