School days

It finally hit me today when I went to pick Nikki up at school. She is just a year away from high school and Ryan is just two years away from graduation. I am trying not to be sad but it just seems so sudden. It was like overnight from kids to young adults with lives and interests away from me. I am proud that they are confident happy people but sad that it has flown by so quickly. I remember the gap toothed kids the runny nosed toddlers and the giggling infants. Days like this make me relish Kaylee and her young age even more. I hope that she stays little longer for me. I sure do love these sweet kids of mine

Summer days are so fun

I took the kids down to the creek near the house. I got a few pictures of them but it not great quality (it was my cell phone). But we had a blast and plan to go back again as soon as we have a chance. I hope that it will be soon. It was so nice to spend that time together.

This was a cute picture so I had to share. I think she had more fun than any of us:

That is all for now. Thanks for all the comments you guys leave me. I hope you enjoy reading our blog.

more updates

I have not posted in while so I thought I would do a week in review. Tuesday Mike and I went out on a date afternoon. Wednesdays are always my busiest day. I get to dread Wednesdays with a passion. Thursday I cooked all day and then Nikki had registration at the Middle School last night. Today I plan on going shopping for school supplies for the kids. And tomorrow will be clothes shopping day. I really enjoy clothes shopping day because the older two actually go with me and I make them stay with me so it is my time with them. I dread school starting the older two are both so involved that they are gone constantly. They have done so much to help with the baby during the summer. I will miss all that they do too help me. I love them so much and am grateful that they are my children. This is Nikki's last year at the middle school and Ryan has just three more years of high school before he graduates. I know it is just the cycle of life but I want to enjoy these last years of all of us being together before they leave me to start college and so forth.
