Wow where do I even begin? I just noticed that I haven't posted since July of 2010! I'm sure nothing short of everything has changed and happened since then! As the saying goes "Time Fly's when you are having fun!"
Lets see.. since July of last year:
Doug and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary in November. Thanks to a reminder from Facebook, I didn't forget it! (Bad wife award!)Doug went back to school for the last time! He registered for graduation for December 2011. I can't wait to have it all over with (probably not as much as him!)I am excited for Doug and for our family for the opportunities that his degree will open up.
Carson moved from the terrible 2's to the torturous (and talkative) 3's in December. He is the size of most 4 and 5 year old's in his daycare - he is a little over 3 1/2 foot now. He was moved from his toddler room at daycare to the 3 year old Preschool room. I was worried at first if he was ready and if he could handle the transition. He has done fantastic! Luckily a lot of friends made the transition right around the same time, so he was able to stay with a lot of the kids that he knows and likes to play with. He is really changing into his own little person.. with an attitude that goes on for miles. I think it's safe to say he is definitely just like his momma! He is really into reading books, singing and dancing. Check out You Tube or Facebook to see some of his dancing talents!
Keeping up with him and his constant energy has been a challange but it is also a ton of fun!
Since July of last year Brenden has almost completed the 6th grade and celebrated his 12th Birthday in September. He had an ice skating party with several of his friends with a Kansas City Royals theme. It is insane for me to think that he will be in Junior High this upcoming school year. It seems like just yesterday that I was sitting in the parking lot sobbing after dropping him off for his first day of preschool! He is still a fantastic student and just an all around great kid. He tried out last summer for the Siouxland Stars, which is a traveling baseball team. On September 1, he was offered a spot on the roster. I have never been more excited for him! He loves baseball and he's pretty good at it. We love watching him play and watching him grow as a player. They have been practicing (mainly indoors) since February. His first games are this weekend. It is such a great experience for him and for us.
Not much has changed in my life. I am dreading September of this year. Brenden will be turning 13 and 5 days later I will be turning 30. It is just too much to deal with in one week for me! I am still working at the same place and for the most part I still enjoy it. I became a Mini-Van mom in December and shockingly I couldn't be happier about it. I guess thats maybe one of the signs of getting old!
