Kaeden's last day of 1st grade

     This year has had so many ups and downs for Kaeden. We moved across the country, he switched schools in the middle of the school year, he left all his friends to remake new ones, he lost his grandma, he started tae kwon do, and he was asked to join the math bowl and chorous. He's really growing up to be a wonderfully, bright child. Almost too bright, I think to myself at times.

     His last day of 1st grade was this past Friday. Here is his exit interview I have started doing since Kindergarten. It's so fun to see how things have changed (and not) over time.

New Beginnings

I have a really good reason for not updating in the last month..... We are moving to Tampa. Things have been in the works for about 6 weeks but we just got official word last week. The movers come tomorrow and we leave Thansgiving morning. Everything has been rush, rush, rush around here. The kids are doing amazingly well (especially with all these changes). We are all looking forward to being much closer to family and living in our southern comfort zone again. More from the road. Xoxo

First post of October, wow I'm behind!

In my defense, there has been a lot going on and MOST of what's been going on is stuff I can't talk about. We all know how I am with keeping things quiet so... moving on....

The kids are great. Kaeden is doing super in school. We get his first report card in about a week and a half. I'm very anxious for it. He's got a couple more soccer games left and he has definitely been playing much better than last year. He is ready for Halloween big time and he will be going as Chop Chop (it's a skylander). Kaeden has been doing really, really well in awana this year as well. He's already earned his second patch and second wings and last week he asked for his first bible. I was really excited to see that he is taking interest in the right things.

Brennan has 5 teeth and the 6th one has just popped through. I know it's really going to change his appearance when he has 8 teeth instead of 4, not looking forward to that. He is full of craziness. Seriously. I can't keep him out of things that he's not supposed to be in or from making messes; I kinda sort of love every minute of it. I'm still very undecided what he's going to be for Halloween, mainly because he hates anything on his head. as of now we think he's going to be Smokey.

Chad and I both well. Chad is in Florida right now and has been for about a week and half; I have just been "fall" cleaning if you will and crafting a bit since he's been gone.

I've really been dreading these updates, mostly because I let so much time pass that I've forgotten the funny things Kaeden has said or the cute things Brennan has done. So I've decided that nightly I will be writing something in a word document and I'll just copy that with some pictures on Sunday night and there will be my blog post for the week. Big, big changes are coming soon and I know I don't want to miss out on blogging that.

 That, incase you are wondering, is blue dawn. I was standing at the sink doing dishes and I turn around and he has almost emptied a bottle. I have quickly learned that silence is NOT golden in this house.

These days it's hard to get Kaeden to want to take pictures. We did just get his soccer pictures back and so I will do my best to get some of those up shortly!

Brennan's 1st Birthday Party

Brennan had his first birthday party on September 22, 2012

It was a "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" Theme and we had so much fun. I have never put as much effort into planning a creating a party as I did this one. I really hope he looks back on these pictures and sees just how much he was loved. Thank you to everyone who came, thank you if you sent cards and a gift or cards and money. He has been enjoying his new toys for the past few days.

Please enjoy the photos. They are compliments of my good friend Faith at Oval Studios
