A Week Later...

Sorry I have not gotten any better at posting anything more than a week apart! I just have not been taking the time to stop and actually post on my own blog. I still read several daily, usually before I go to bed at night. I am irritated at myself cause I had a subject to write about just a little while ago and now can't remember what it was!

Since taking on the job of Volunteer Coordinator for the PTO of Tanner's school, I have been really busy! Seems like there is always an email to send out. Now if I could just get them back, things would be going good! I send them out letting parents know what is going on but get very little response. I am hoping it will get better since this is a new school. All I can do is get the word out there and that is what I keep telling myself. With helping at the school and still being an At-Home Mommy I don't get bored! And add to that...Tanner started flag football practice and has games starting next week! How will we ever juggle it with both boys in some sport?? It will be fun!!

I did get to spend last Sat with Hubby's Aunt & Uncle at a marching band competition out of town. It was a very long day...we left at 8:30am and returned at 1:30am. Hubby's cousin is marching in his high school band this year as an 8th grader!! He does very awesome!! He has learned and caught on to it very well!! It brought back all the high school memories of my days! Although this was a little different because these schools were way bigger than the one that I attended. They all had some awesome shows. The school we were supporting came in 8th out of 21! I am looking like a red raccoon right now but had alot of fun! I can't wait to go on the 10th to another one!! Next time I will remember sunscreen!

Besides all that stuff there isn't much else going on! Or at least I don't know that I have time for much else to go on...and now I will go so I can get ready to go to the school and see what is going on today!

I hope to be back sooner than a week but if not...have a great week!!

1st Day of Fall

I wish I could say that I was excited about it being the 1st day of Fall....but I am not! Unlike most people I love spring and summer. I guess I would like Fall ok if it didn't mean that winter is coming and cooler weather. My muscles just don't do well at all with cold weather. These 2 seasons are the hardest for me since I have fibromyalgia. Even though I don't really like to be hot, my muscles hurt WAY less in spring and summer!

But despite my muscles not liking the cooler weather I live with 3 boys that LOVE football! I like football too especially since Tanner plays. Today is his first day of practice for this season. This is his 3rd and probably last year of flag football. Next year he most likely will move on to tackle...not sure I am ready for all that! I am glad he is so passionate about it, it is just that since I am "Mommy" I worry about him getting hurt. So I will enjoy this last year of flag football to the fullest! I hope he gets to enjoy it and has lots of fun while still learning!!

Sorry I have been MIA for so long! I have to be honest....I got kind of discouraged after I started this new one due to the issues I was having with my other one. I don't have the followers that I had on my other one and have been discouraged about that. But I have decided that it doesn't matter who does or doesn't read, I am doing this for me! So I am back!!!

I have a busy day ahead of me...I am involved in PTO stuff for my son's school which is turning into being a very busy job! Plus I am trying to get things together for a consignment coming up in a few weeks. I am also still a Mommy and wife who has a house to keep clean. So I have been busy and it is getting busier! But I am back and will blog more!!

I still read alot of blogs even tho I don't comment all the time or often, it is what I read before going to bed every night!! I love my blog buddies!!

I am putting up a button for my friend's little boy that is very premature! Please please pray for Miracle Max and his Mommy & Daddy! He was born at 27 weeks on Monday in the early morning. Pray for him to continue being strong and to be able to grow, grow, grow with little or no health issues!

9 Years Old!

I am now the Mommy to a 9 year old and 3 year old!! How in the world did that happen so fast?? There is no way that 9 years have pasted that quickly!!.....(I can dream right??)....

So my oldest (who have I mentioned is 9 now?) thinks he is Mr Model or something lately and loves to "pose" when I have the camera out. Here he is yesterday (when he was still 8) at the river.

We spent the day with him and Logan at the zoo here in town. It was a nice time with the exception of being HOT! But it was a very fun day as a family!! Here he is posing at the zoo...again...(this time he is now 9!)

Here is him and Logan together at this face sculpture thingy.
Notice how Logan is picking the sculpture's nose??
The boys took a break from looking at animals and decided to climb the rock wall. Here is the new 9 year old after he made his way to the top with Daddy's help...
Now getting down was a whole different story! Here is Logan after he made his way to the top with Daddy's help...

It was a nice family day and now we are all hanging out at home this evening just relaxing. The sun and heat kind of wore Mommy and Daddy out. I wish the boys could give me half of their energy! These 2 people..
are very proud of our 2 boys! It has been an awesome 9 years with Tanner that I would not trade for the world. I am excited to see what this year brings for him! I am hoping a new attitude some days but we will see. Let the 9 year old boy adventures begin!!

At Home Mommy

I am loving being at home with my Boys!! We are trying to settle into a regular routine and are just about there. Logan and I enjoy our days together when Bubba is in school. The mornings are usually laid back. That is when Logan watches Dora and Diego. You can also find him doing some of this as well...
He loves playing games on the laptop while cartoons are on. I have to say that he does pretty well with them!! He is good for being 3 years old. I also have been working on shapes, letters and numbers with him. He can recognize some of the numbers and letters on his own.

The afternoons are usually spent playing with Hot Wheels tracks or me doing things around the house. It is just nice to be home with the boys. I like to be able to help Tanner with homework when he gets home and it not be a huge hurry up issue.

It is about to get busier around our house as football season is upon us. Hubby is busy during football season with his many fantasy football teams as well as watching the games. Tanner will be playing flag football for his 3rd year. I was hoping to get Logan into soccer or something but looks like he needs to be 4 years old. So next spring we will look into that. Not sure what his sport of choice will be...will be interesting to see.

I am off now to get some things done before the weekend is here! It is date night for Hubby and I. Tanner turns 9 on Monday so we will be doing special things with him this weekend as well. Hope it is a nice Labor Day weekend for everyone!!

I wanted to do a post today and while trying to think of what to write about I realized that it is SEPTEMBER!! What in the world happened to the last 9 months?? Not only has time flown by at turbo speed but in 6 short days I will be the Mommy to a 9 year old!!! 9 YEAR OLD!!! That just doesn't seem possible....

Ok so I am in a little shock here....and can't think of what to talk about so I will go back to getting ready to adventure to an appt for Logan with my almost 2 year old niece, another 2 year old and 6 month old baby!! Yeah that is 4 kiddos under 3!! Maybe I can't comprehend where the last 9 months have gone cause I have lost my mind??
