Silly girl

You might get tired of seeing Kate in my 365 journey, but that is just how we roll right now. I am home alone with Kate a lot and I see her more than I see my boys. Don't worry, I won't neglect them, but I thought I would warn you :)

My view

The top picture is the view from the middle right window of the downstairs. The bottom picture is the view out the window - what I look at when I sit down at my computer. It is truly spectacular and the picture really doesn't do it justice. I took the bottom picture first to show the whole view and then the top picture to try and show you how cool it really is. They just uploaded opposite for some reason. So, here are my first two pictures of the 365 project that I'm taking on...wish me luck! :)


I'm gonna try it. I'm going to do it! I need to do this.

I am going to take the project 365 challenge on. I am going to take a picture a day for 365 days (one whole year) and put them on my blog. And I'm going to start right now.

I am absolutely HORRIFIC at journaling. I own maybe ten journals that each have two to three pages written in. It's pathetic for sure! This will be my way of journaling my year.

Growing up

My boys are growing up. Kate is too, but I feel it more right now with my boys. Alex is 15 and now has his driver's permit. Every time we get in the car he wants to drive :) I remember when I was that age and did the same thing. Alex loves working out and is getting some serious muscles to prove it. He works out at least three days a week for over an hour. He is a very dedicated kid. He is also teaching himself to play piano. He watches videos on how to play the songs he likes and then learns them. He is getting pretty good. Alex was on the golf team in the fall and really wants to make the soccer team this spring. My fingers are crossed for him.

Johnathan just had his 13th birthday, so now I have two teenagers in the house. Ack! It makes me feel so old. He is in junior high now and looks different than even the picture I just added to the side bar. He is so tall and slimming up a ton. He has almost caught Alex in height. He played soccer this fall and will again I'm sure.

Zachary is now in second grade. He will turn 8 in March and will be baptized. He will be my final son to be baptized. *sob, sniffle, sniffle* He is such a friendly kid and LOVES to play with his friends, or cousins. He also played soccer this past fall and is currently in basketball (which is very amusing to watch)

Kate is now almost 15 months old. She has been walking since she was almost a year old. She is starting to say animal sounds and says a few words. She LOVES her brothers (she has a special relationship with Alex), and loves to be around her Grammie and Grandaddy.

We have been blessed to make our home with my parents for the time being. It is a mutually beneficial relationship and we appreciate their generosity.

I know, it's a pretty short update, but I hope to start getting more frequent in my posts. It's one of my goals for the new year, so we'll see how well it goes.
It's about time I got serious about this. Gonna start again :)
