DANG . . . where does the time go?
Well it is May and all the kids are a year older now. School is almost out and by months end I will have a 8th grader, 6th grader and 4th grader . . . I know crazy, right?
I can't believe a year ago Dan and I were bursting at the seams wanting to tell the kids about the Disneyland trip we planned for the last day of school and now a year later it seems as if it were a blink of an eye and we are at another year end of school.
Dan is currently employed at URS with each day bringing a changing end date. Crazy, I think we are both just to the point of wanting to know and moving on. Stress and change is a killer sometimes. When he is not working he is running kids, fixing things around the house or helping others. I truly admire that about him.
I am still at the same job with the State of Utah, almost made my 3 year mark. I still love my job, had a bit of a break down when my boss announced he was leaving last October, not knowing that my new boss would be even better. I love what I do and I love who I work for it is great. The only down fall is the working mom thing. I still have a bit of guilt not being there for my kids 24/7:-(
Dalton started a new adventure in Jr. High and surprised me with how much he loves it. Most kids including myself hated Jr. High. He amazes me each and every day with his love of learning. He has definitely grown up a ton. He is currently playing baseball and I couldn't be prouder of him and the man he is becoming.
Georgette has bloomed into a young woman. She has become my little helper. She helps out with her sister and she is doing much better in school. I attribute that to her awesome tutor I found, she has gave Georgette the confidence she needs to achieve what she wants and it shows. She is playing on the accelerated softball team again this year and is doing awesome. I am so proud of her for overcoming all the challenges she has had a school.
Whitney is in 3rd grade and she has an awesome teacher. She is my happy go lucky child. Not much gets to her and she always has a smile. She loves the simple things in life, sometimes when I look for her I will find her laying on tramp talking to her dog as if it were her best friend. She is always cheering for the underdog and is a true lover of life. She has taught me so much I wish I could be more like her:-) She is also playing ball, I feel bad for moving her up an age group to her sisters team, but that was me being selfish not wanting to chase 3 kids schedules again this year, but she is doing awesome and you would never know she was the youngest on the team.
Over the year our family has had its ups, downs and struggles but together we always seem to get it right. I hope all is well with your families and a big shout out to all the moms in my life HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
