Life right now

Today is the first day of summer vacation! I now have a 4th grader, a 2nd grader, and a 2nd year preschooler. Very exciting! School was winding down but life was not. Things have been so busy, I hardly have had time to think and have thoughts to write down.

Joel has started Tae Kwon Do which he loves. Noah is doing baseball, wrestling, and just finished up soccer.

We will be spending much time at the pool, a trip to ride coasters, doing some camping, and oh yes, I'm going to school. Mon-Thurs from 5-9:30. Here I go! I'm nervous, and mostly excited of what this will bring! I hope by the fall I will have a job as a CNA!

This is life right now. I have nothing deep to say, just enjoying the boys.

Whats that you say?

I want to take a bath........ Even though it was 3:15 in the afternoon, and I had 4 kids outside (2 were not my own), and one down stairs, with dinner to prepare this little guy brought this sentence to me. "I want to take a bath", and a bath he took! This is the first time Alex on his own decided what he wanted, and found me, and made his request known.

If I could travel back in time there are lots of times I would go. Things I would change, choices that I made.If I only had one trip to make I would travel back to September 7, 2007. I would tell myself that Alex was going to make it, and I would tell myself not to waste my time grieving the loss of the typical child. To not waste a year hoping it wasn't so. I would tell myself that a lifetime of lessons would be learned in a short three years. That I would really find out, feel, and give what real love is. I would tell myself that no one is typical, and while it isn't always obvious we are all the same. If I could have just told myslef to see the beauty from the beginning, I wouldn't have missed a beat.

Mothers Day

My day started off with a card signed by my 4 sweet boys........ We had breakfast together......

Alex and Joel were fascinated with a national geographic show on the ocean life.......

After church we had lunch together with my mom on the deck, yummy fried chicken, mashed tatos, biscuits and all sorts of wonderful sides...................

Did I mention the great gifts I got? Max brought me my new IPhone:)

This wonderful child made me a book of poetry.................

Cake lover, that is a fact!

I loved that he said extra pretty, but even better is that I am not lousy!

Working with babies lots.....true story.

Alex painted this keepsake box for me, I love it! My first hand made gift from him:)

And all day long I wore this gorgeous necklace that Joel made for me. Got many a compliment on it, yes I did.

By far one of my best mothers days indeed!

Happy mothers day!

I love you mom......
