Hello all! I can't believe it has been since March since I last blogged. Facebook has really taken over the blogging world I think! Anyway, I just felt like updating a few things.

The kiddos are all great. Jackson I enjoying preschool 4 days a week now. He is such a big boy. He is truly the size of most of the kindergarteners at school. He loves his teachers and is doing great! He is playing soccer again and this time Cooper is on his team. It is nice to be able to see both boys play during one game!

Holland is now in the fourth grade. Wow! She is doing awesome! We will be getting report cards next week...but from what I can tell from her online grades, she will have all A's and B's. Not too shabby since fourth grade is really tough. She continues to enjoy drawing and writing stories.

Taylor is growing so much! I can't believe she is already a second grader. She is making good grades too...all A's and a few B's. She is in Girl Scouts(Brownies) this year so be ready some cookie solicitation in the spring ;-). Both girls are going to start gymnastics in January.

I am almost done with my master's degree!!!! Dec. 3rd is the last day of student teaching. I already completed my first placement in kindergarten and now I am teaching fourth grade. I love them both so far....

Jason continues to travel and we continue to miss him. We are so thankful for his job though!! He is happy and loves what he does...just not the time away from us. Anyway....all of this brings us up to date and hopefully I will do a better job keeping up! Here are a few new pics from the fall.....

Soccer Time!

Jackson has had two soccer games so far and is doing great! His team is so cute! Did I mention the coach is cute too ;-) I had class the first two games, so I will take more pictures at the next one. We have 3 more days until our 2 week spring break begins! Disney here we come!!! I will post more after our trip. I'll have the week after to recooperate and get some things done at home.

More Snow Days!!!


My goal for the new year is to post at least once a month. This month was totally about snow days!!! Oh, and the stomach bug and swine flu. With that is no surprise that I only worked 7 days this entire month!!! Seriously! We did get a lot of painting and cleaning done due to being at home so much. I hope Feb. brings better health...Holland was sick for 7 days with H1N1. She was so miserable. I am now considering the vaccine....I only have 2 sick days left.
The girls both got straight A's on their report cards. We were so proud of them. They each earned some money for all those A's, so we made a trip to Justice to celebrate. They spent all their money on Zhu Zhu pets and accessories. Taylor, Jackson and Jason went to the Circus with some friends and Brian, Carter, Cooper and Jesselyn. Holland was still sick, so she and I stayed home :-( We don't have much planned for Feb. except for Jackson't 4th b-day on the 28th. I will post fun b-day picks then!

Snow Days?

Snow Angels!

My little snow babies!

I haven't blogged in forever...the holiday season is always so busy. But so much fun!!! I miss it already. Jan-Spring Break is so long, cold and boring. We have gotten off to a fun start with a few snow days, if you can call them that. The kids loved sliding around in the snow and made some fantastic snow angels on the trampoline. We went to visit our neighbors back in GA this past weekend. It was great seeing everyone. It felt like we never is hard to believe it has really been a year and a half. All the kiddos have grown so much! We came back with a nasty stomach bug and are just now recovering(Thanks Bonnie ;-). Today has been good though. Holland went to school, but the rest of us stayed home. Tomorrow it is back to school and the real world!

In other new, we recently found out that Jason's Dad has lung cancer. It is stage 3 because it has spread to 2 surrounding lymph nodes. He begins chemo this Thurs. so please keep him in your prayers. He is not a candidate for surgery at this point, so the chemo/radiation is our only hope. He is keeping good spirits and the Dr. is saying there is hope 50-75% recovery. God can heal him, we know. We are all very scared and worried and really need God's peace in our lives right now.

Webkinz Mania!

Are you kidding me? We have $1000.00 invested in these crazy fur balls!!! We counted the webkinz the other day (yes, we are bored on fall break...) and we came up with a grand total of 72! They range from $10 to $14, so the estimate is $1000.00!

Taylor has been enjoying cheerleading for the Upward league this fall. Here are a few pics of her in action.

Beach Trip and the Jackson Five

We are back from the beach and getting ready for school next week. We had such a nice time with the Givens in Destin, FL. The weather was perfect and we got some good relaxation time. The highlite of the trip for the kids was the adoption of our new pets.....CRABS!! They are actually cute little guys. Their names are Krabby and Sam.

We returned home just in time for our visit from the Jackson Five! It was wonderful to see our old friends. Baby Drew was precious!!! We had quite an eventful 2 days, complete with an emergency room visit, the zoo and dinner at the Rainforest Cafe! Everyone is fine...Kelsey just had a bad busted lip:(

I will be finishing my 3rd class (Reading) this weekend. I have spent the past few days making a bullitn board, a learning center, and game and let us not forget the 110 page handwriting workbook!! This class has been jam packed with work! I am ready for another break!
