Wellllll....

I'm like sooo behind I don't even know where to begin!
Life has been non-stop. I think for two weeks we had someone over at our house almost every night. But now school has started and things are starting to get back to normal, somewhat. It's so much easier to keep a schedule during the school year...
Anywho...we've had a lot going on. C started the 4th grade! WHAT??!!? I honestly can not believe he is in the 4th grade. It kinda makes me feel old...HA! He was blessed with an AWESOME teacher this year and we can't wait to see how the year goes. AND they finished the new school, so he is getting to enjoy each day in a brand spankin' new school. It looks so nice. I think the schools here are all at least 50 years old...probably older. So it is a huge treat for our little town.
Here's the big guy off to his 1st day of school...
He was pretty excited.
B was also excited and loaded up a little backpack with crayons and a coloring book...he cried all the way home after he realized he wasn't staying with his big bro. It was so sad...

Speaking of B, he has been going to the chiropractor for some potty issues he was having. He has done SOOO much better than I thought he would and his problem seems to be fixed. Now if we can get him to acutally do his business in the potty, that would be GREAT! He was doing so good, and I don't know what happened, but he's regressed in the last few weeks.
I was really tempted to take my camera and gets some pics (cause it is just so cute)at the Dr. office, but I felt kinda silly and opted not to. He gets along with the Dr. so well...he even gave him a kiss the other day...yep, on the mouth! He's crazy!

Friday is D and I's anniversary...10 years. I can't believe it's already been ten years. I'll have to dig up some wedding photos to put on here Friday. Love ya honey! Can't wait for 10 more and 10 more and 10 more and...well, you get the picture...

I'm random today...jumping from one thing to another...
but the boys also got a trampoline a few weeks ago. B LOVES it...all he wants to do is go jump...all day long. Here he is doing some laps...burning off some of that intense energy...YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!


OK...so I guess I will post some scrappy stuff now...
Here are some LOs for Triple the Sketch...

The first one is B...one of my favorite pics of him...


And here we are this past Easter...the whole fam...Bry was NOT cooperating!

And last but not least...I'm a little reluctant to share this one...I did post it in my gallery, but my friends and family don't look at stuff there...just here. But I really like it and it was good to get things off my chest and on paper...so here it is...


Here is the journaling...just scroll down a little...sorry it's a little long...

Ok, so now that I've depressed everyone..JK!
I guess that is just about it for today...I'm hoping to get back on some sort of bloggy schedule soon...
So until then...
Be blessed!
Ember
