Happy Birthday, My Baby

To my baby,

You are a gift sent straight from heaven, we are so lucky to have you.  The past five years with you has been such a blessing to our family.

You are so very smart.  You amaze me all the time with your BIG words and how you use them.  You ask so many questions that I sometimes think you are maybe writing a book, lol! 

What a curious little boy you are and I love answering matter how many times you ask.  That is how we learn.

You have such an awesome imagination.  I love how you can get lost in play, that is one of the most beautiful things about being a child.  You are in full gear now, pretending to be anything, anytime and anywhere! 

You are so helpful and kind to others and you use good manners....even when I'm not there, as your teacher told me at back to school night!  I am so proud of you! 

You are the silliest five year old I know!  We can always crack up together, and can have fun almost anywhere!  You have the best sense of humor!  I love to giggle with you, yes, hands down a favorite thing to do with you.

  You are the best hugger-snuggler...EVER~!  You are such a SWEET boy.....stay that way.

You were given the name "Bass Master" because of the great fishing that you do with your daddy....boy, you can catch fish with the best of them! 

There are so many wonderful things about you that make me so lucky to be your mommy but I will finish up by saying Happy Birthday Baby......and many, many, more.

I love you forever and always, to the moon and back child.....

Alive and Kicking...catching up.

I am still here.

Alive and kicking.

It has been a very long time since my last post....

All that talk about posting more now that summer is here?

Bologna, I know.

This past summer went by in a blaze of glory.

Gone as fast as it came.

As I sit here on the eve before the new school year starts, I am trying to recount the days.

While I can't quite sum it all up into a really exciting and entertaining post, I have been able to gather a list.

A list that may explain my lack of posting....even justify it.
Here it is....
a list...with a few random thoughts thrown in.
--I completed a very satisfying year of work for the first time in a long time.  I'm so grateful for my job and the wonderful people I work with.

--I am recovering from illness and thankfully on the mend....
I am now however finding out that I am arthritic before even hitting 40....
seriously, really.

--We had a wonderful camping trip in the begining of summer vacation.

--A few visits to the beach...not as often as I would have liked but we were there

--Even after I was on the mend, I continued to neglect my blog and made a point to stay off the computer entirely and focus on the most important things in my life, taking care of my health, devoting time to my family and making precious memories with them.

--My father has continued to recover by the Grace of God.  He is sprouting hair like weeds.

--My daughters best friend was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Lukemia on the day my father was cleared of his cancer.  Yes the lord does work in mysterious ways.

This has been eye opening for my family...we love our childrens friends like family.   My daughter has had a lot of emotion to work through this summer. 

--A fundraiser was held for her and her family, it was amazing to see people come together in our community.

--We redecorated my daughters rooms, because they are growing up too fast, and it was quite hard for me to pack away some of their childhood memorabilia.

--A few college visits for my oldest.

--Celebrated July Fourth and my fathers recovery with a LARGE family party.

--We have torn apart our bathroom and are in the slow moving process of renovating it....
not fun, not fun at all.

--Experienced tremours from our first earthquake.

--We gathered family inside our home and waited out hurricane Irene, that decided to show up along with a few tornadoes....and thank god we were mostly untouched by it.

--Add in a few days in between of floating in our pool, swimming in the creek, chasing fireflies, planting a few garden beds...and that pretty much sums it all up. 

It went by too fast.  I wish we had more time.

Now it all has come to an abrupt end and we're moving into a new season. 
It just so happens to be my most favorite season of all.

A new school year begins tomorrow and I will be back at work.

I am a little melancholy this year.
This school year
My oldest will be starting the first day of her last year of school....a senior.
My son will be starting his first day of his first year of school......kindergarten.

Our middle child will be moving into 8th grade.

It is all a little bittersweet.

But we are all alive and kicking afterall!

If you've stuck with me then thank you!

I should have a post to share soon.....
I won't say when, but soon.

I hope you all are well!

Take care,
