My little man is not so little anymore!

Well I have to admit I can not keep him my baby boy for much longer. Despite all my worries, concerns and control issues I let Dalton miss his first day of school to go deer hunting with dad. He was so excited until he got home and realized that he had to do make up work for the day as homework. I am glad that he is able to spend time with Dan doing something they both enjoy so much. Every time he takes a giant step like this he comes back home a bigger boy, it makes me want to cry or freeze time or something. Here are a few pictures of their special day.

Fall = Grateful

For some reason when the season changes, I always begin to reflect on my life and think of things I am grateful for, so for today I am grateful for:

My husband: who works hard to provide a good life for his family. For helping me learn the hard lesson of patience, understanding, and the fact that I can not control everything in my life.

My kids: for making me smile, feel important and needed.

My parents: for always being there for me no matter what, when, where or what time. For teaching me how to get back up again after I fall and most of all how to stay committed to when the going gets tough.

Family: because of them I know the meaning of unconditional love.

Diabetes: (shocked) Yes I am thankful for diabetes. It has taught me to not take things for granite.

Modern Medicine: because of modern medicine, I can manage Dalton's diabetes at home and his life can be somewhat normal.

Home: a place I can hang my hat and put up my feet and know that I am safe.

Work: I love the children I work with, the people I work with. No need to say more.

Friends: because everyone needs a smile, shoulder or someone to lean on every now and then.

There are many more things I am grateful for but for today these are my tops. I hope you all take a moment each day and think of at least 3 things your thankful for, so that you can smile for a minute even on your worst days!

Sending my love to you all!

Sorry Rylee that your slide show was put on a day late. One reason was I wanted to wait til after your party so I could get more pictures of you. Either I don't have many or I could not find them. However, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY. The kids and I had a great time at your swim party thanks LOVE YA TONS!
