It's been a while...

Today was a good day! Without going into the long past months that I haven't posted anything, I though I'd just upload a great picture of my kids in our backyard having some summer fun!

Happy Birthday Wesley!

Wes is 2!

Who's 2? Wes is!

Clever little cupcake cake. Wes is head over heals for trains!

I know that I say this every year, but I can not believe how old he is getting! He's grown so much since last year! Today Wes can count to ten, knows his left from his right, says his ABCs, can identify all his letters, and is working on his address. He is a delight to play with and a handful to say the least. He's learning his boundries and pushing the limits with every decision. He loves to play with his trains and chasing after Brenden and Annie. I am a very blessed mama! Today I am a proud mama of an amazing 2 year old!!

It's been a while...

I could write a lie, something very poetic and lovely, but the honest truth is I haven't really had anything great to say. You know the old adage, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Well that's kinda where I've been. Don't get me wrong, I have a great job, a lovely home and an amazing family. That's what really matters right? Mmm...

This December has been the toughest of my life. Yes, I do know that it's the middle of February. The anniversary of mom's death had me really low. I'm not sure why this year was any different but it just felt heavier. Then her mother unexpectedly passed. I want to say that she died of heartache but I'm not really sure why it was her time. I know that I have no idea of the bigger plan and I am looking for the bigger lesson, but I am a little lost. I felt my most vulnerable and then I was thrown another curve to navigate. This is what life is like. But really? Not really sure where I'm going with this but today is tough. Guess today is just gonna be a rough one, could be the rain who knows. Pity party! Table for one!

teacher vs. mama

It is no wonder that often I am caught between being a mother and being a teacher. I have said many times that I can not do both well at the...
