I know it had been a ~while~ since I had blogged, but this long??? Really???? My how time flies when you are having fu.... well, lets not go overboard. LOL
Life is still chaotic with 5 kids, more so now because Eric is working 5 days a week in Columbus, GA on base at Ft. Benning. He loves it though (not the being gone). He's an archaeologist. It's what he went to school for and what his heart longs for him to be doing. Hopefully, God will find it in his plan for him to be an "at home" dad AND an archaeologist.
Tyler is gearing up for his Senior year. Of course he's amazing at academics. And you should really see the concrete slab in front of the house. He's constructed, as he calls it, a "ghetto skate park"... He's out there most afternoons working on his flips, (I'm not into the skater lingo) so forgive me) and his kicks...
Abby, is 13! Who can believe that? certainly not me. But her attitude tells all too well that change has come. Whoa! LOL... More beautiful than ever and an A-B student to top it off. Makes a momma proud.
Russell is Russell. Loves to learn. He spent 3 days at Camp McDowell this year. The first time he has been away from home without family. He loved it. He said he got tired but really enjoyed it. We are still hearing bits and pieces.
Bekah....ah my little Bug. Kindergarten has caused her to bloom... Reading, math and art are her favorite subjects. And Meredith is her best "frwend".
Mack, baby boy. Now 2, is quickly shedding his baby-ness. He's quick to tell you he's not a baby. Any mention of the "B" word and he passionately exclaims "KID"!... So precious, so inquisitive about every living thing. So much like his daddy. :::wink:::
I am trying to begin crafting again, I'm in the middle of a painting and several sewing projects. I actually made Bekah the cutest out fit. I copied it from a quaint little boutique in Tuscaloosa which were selling them at a price of $75! My version... less than $10! Now that is what I call a bargain.
I promise pictures to come soon. Especially updated ones of the kids. They are hardly recognizable if you are trying with what is on here! Shame on me. I promise better blog habits to follow.
Hugs and Sweet Dreams!
