Warning LONG POST!
Life gets busy, and I have been out of the loop. Some of you may not understand this, but sometimes when things get busy, and feel out of control, I have to do what I can to survive, get where I need to be, do what I have to get done, and most of all, take the time I need for my family!! April was a birthday month, and when I get to some of those pictures, well let me just say, the season of life that I am in, is not for me!! During all that baseball was in full swing (no pun intended) and it seems as if a whirlwind occurred and now we are less than a month away from school being out. I don't want to bore you with lots of details, but I will catch up with some pictures with some tidbits of info as we go.
|See that catcher?? That's our boy!|
|Awesome picture... I cannot believe that I actually took it!!! He is so handsome & grown up!! :(|
|Mr Kea has started Karate and this was during a Kickathon for St Judes. He is on the front row third from the right.|
Easter 2013 (Baby C's Daddy had to work....We missed you M!!!)
|Baby C.... who is no longer a baby! Cute T Pie!!|
|All my babies (shhh don't tell me they are not babies, cause they are, really!!)|
|Bub, Sis & Kea... sweet (well they are most of the time)|
|This one, well he is the silly one.... hates to have his picture make. So I will just post his silliness in blog world!|
|Handsome little fella that keeps us on our toes!!!|
|I know this is off center.....lol!! I had to post this one because the camera was on the window sill and B set the auto take and run to get in his place. We did this several times and this one was the best because we were cracking up!! :)|
|Our pretty girl!! All smiles!|
|Me & my beautiful girls!!|
|This sweet baby is growing up too fast!!|
|He was so excited and so was Mommy!!|
|Sweet picture....couldn't resist sharing! :)|
This silly boy....
|My monkey !!|
|is still a monkey!|
|Happy 16th Birthday Bub!!!|
|B was trying to be serious and give a little speech and starting getting choked up. I have no idea what was said or caused them to laugh, but I just love this picture!|
|Whoo hoo.... he got his license..... actually it was boohooohooo for me :((|
|Getting ready to leave for school.|
|Off my baby boy goes.... driving all alone.|
Watching that boy drive away, I have to admit, was worse than taking him to Kindergarten. I was doing pretty good reminding him to be careful, watch out for others, and as I started to pray for him, I. LOST. IT. Bless his heart, its a good thing he knows how his Momma is, he didn't roll his eyes (not that I could see, anyway) and he just hugged me tight. (ok, so I am crying again!!) As he drove off I told the Lord, ok, I see that I am not in control at all right now, you are! Part of my life is driving off by himself right now. I don't even know how long I cried and prayed. I am still struggling with this... maybe I will grow used to it about the time he graduates...???
As I am struggling with the fact that he is 16.... two weeks roll around and this sweet little girl turns 20!!!
|Happy 1st Birthday Sis!!|
|Can have a little attitude!|
|Such sweet smiles!!|
|All grown up now!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS!!!! Beautiful inside & out!!|
So proud of her... after two years of hard work, she was accepted into the Nursing Program for the Fall. In a couple years we will have 3 nurses in the family (A & M are both nurses!! ). Maybe one will be willing to change my diaper when I am a lot older. :) She is going to make a great nurse. She is loving, compassionate and kind!
I still have lots to catch up on....like my SSMT verses, my 2013 word JOY (this post could qualify for a JOY post although lots of tears have been shed!) and some other things that are worthy of posting and probably some that aren't, lol!!
Hopefully, I can ease my way back into blogging....I have missed it!
Have a blessed week!!!
