Ok. I'm bad at keeping this thing updated. Clearly. In my defense, life has been a little busy. Here is a BRIEF, photo assisted recap of the events in our life since my last update 7 months ago. It was really hard to choose just ONE photo from each event to post, FYI.
Halloween. Luke wasn't impressed. Sam loved his Knight costume...HATED having to walk the neighborhood.
There were a handful of other occurrences over the last 7 months: -I now work as a PT in our public school system. I love working with kids again, but often have to deal with kids who have very difficult home lives. It reminds me daily of how lucky I was growing up, and how much I want to continue to provide my kids with all the love I can manage. -We had to make a tough decision and put our sweet dog to sleep. He got a tumor and gradually seemed less and less comfortable. It was tragic, but we will remember our many many good days with him. -Our hot water heater (located in the attic) busted and flooded our master bedroom. We spent half a week in a local hotel while a crew cleaned the mess. The boys LOVED the hotel. I nearly went insane, as Chris was out of town on a business trip and missed all the 'fun'.
Summer has started for me! I am spending the next week deep cleaning the house, organizing, throwing things out, etc. Then I will have all three boys home with me for a whole 8 weeks! We have lots of plans. Swim lessons, story time at the library, a trip to California...it will be a good summer. I will do my best to update a little more frequently!
