And just like that....

I am the mom of a high schooler and a 4th grader!!

Words can not describe how proud I am of these two. Tyler has come so very far this year, with having to deal with his mental health on top of catching up with his school work. He's moving on from Rush Strong and going to Patriot Academy this August. Everyone at RSS will miss him SO much!! Chase will also miss having big brother with him at school, but at least they will ride the bus together still. Chase did amazing as well, with all A's and B's!! My smart farts!!!

Blog revival!!

Yikes! I cant believe its been almost a year to the day since I've posted anything!! I;m so bad with keeping this up. I don't even know if people still follow this blog anymore!!! I'm hoping to get it up and running, and keep it running, again.

I'll do a super quick update. The boys are doing well! Tyler is having some mental health "issues", but we are taking things one day at a time. He is now 14 years old and taller than me! (well, most people are anyway LOL) He is doing FANTASTIC in school, and is in fact set to graduate from the 8th grade next Tuesday. I will of course take tons of pics. He's really excited about going to high school in August! They have a separate school just for 9th grade and I really like that. He is an amazing writer and hopes to be a famous author some day. I have no doubt he will achieve that goal. Words can not even begin to describe how very proud of him.

Chase is doing amazing in school as well!! He will be turning 9 in just a few weeks and will be going in to 4th grade in August. I know he will miss Tyler since Ty is going to high school. They have been in the same school since Chase started and Ty is very protective of Chase and looks out for him. They will at least still ride the bus together, as Ty will be picked up at RSS to go to the high school. I am so very proud of both boys, and just don't know how I was so Blessed to be their mama! I know in my heart both boys will do GREAT things in their lives.

Here are their Spring photos!!

Are we SURE it's February?!?!?

These temps are just crazy!!!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this weather!! Not humid, beautiful breeze. But it's February!! The skies are so breathtaking:

I'm just worried with this weather so early we're going to get hammered with snow and cold weather!! Ahh well, just enjoy each and every day!

I finally broke down and "splurged" on a good camera for myself. I am such a picture junkie and even though my phone takes decent pics, I wanted a good digital camera. There was a camera I had been wanting for quite awhile, the Canon SX530. I know there are lots of better cameras out there, but i'm still learning with taking pictures and didn't want anything to "fancy". lol  I almost put the camera I wanted on layaway this past Christmas but with money tight I wanted to obviously focus on the boys and not something frivolous for myself. Heck, i'm still talking about the shoes I finally broke down and got and as Tyler keeps reminding me, "They were only $15 mom, you DESERVE them and more!!!" (love that boy beyond words) But, i've now rambled. Last month I did a google search and saw the camera I wanted for more than half off!! Granted it is refurbished, but it came with a warranty and was coming from Canon so I bit the bullet. I can not put into words how much I LOVE this camera!!!!!!!! I mean true, deep down love!!!! I still have SO much to learn, but it is amazing!!! The 50x zoom just blows me away. I've always had the small point and shoot cameras, which I loved, but this is just....WOW!!! I've gotten so many amazing photos with that zoom. And I know there are tons of camera out there that zoom way more than 50, but this is perfect for me! Here are a few moon shots......

I can't wait to learn more about this camera and take even better photos!!!!!  photo Smiley-takingpicture.gifc200_zps4hp156f5.gif

Yikes, a new year!!

I am so bad at keeping up with this blog.We have been without a computer for some time now, and its SO tough updating my blog on my phone. Tyler got a laptop for his 13th birthday and I can now get to updating!!!

Yes, I said it. Tyler is 13. An official teenager!!! shocked smilies photo:  surpris_22.gif I don't know how that happened, I must have blinked or something.He is growing into such an amazing young man. SO handsome and smart!! And of course he is taller than me. eye roll smilie photo: 1sm067eyeroll 1sm067roll.gif We are so very proud of him and I know Zane is VERY proud as well!!

Chase is doing great as well!! He is doing AMAZING in school, as is Tyler. They are both such smart lil' boogers!  Both boys now have glasses. They are worried about Chases left eye, as there is a spot that could possibly be glaucoma. Also, his right eye pulls to the right so the glasses he has are supposed to help that. I felt so bad i waited so long to have his eyes checked, especially because they are so bad. sad smilie photo: 1sm023sad2 smiley-sad.gif He looks so cute in his glasses, though. I'll post pictures once I get back into my photobucket account. I hadn't signed in in forever, like here, and I can't get logged in. So frustrating!! hair pull smilie photo: 1sm054hairpull 1sm056pullhair.gif

We did expand our family. We got a cat!! Her name is Anaise. She a total rotten b**ch, so she fits right in!! As I said, i'll post pics when I can. May just have to suck it up and find another place to store photos for the blog.

I guess thats all for now. Housework is calling!! Hope everyone is doing well! Have  blessed day!!!
