Wow, it's been a long time...

I had someone at work tell me that they missed my blogs.  Well, I do too.  Thank you, you know who you are, for inspiring me to start these up again.  The summer has been busy so I haven't been so good about keeping up with whats going on.  That will change.  As I look back through the posts I have written in the past, I realize I'm keeping a journal, for possibly my boys to read when they are older.  I hope they enjoy it as much as I do.

So much has been going on between my new job, Kyle's new marketing adventure, and keeping up with everything else around the house.  It feels awesome tonight though...we got our carpets cleaned today.  It looks and smells clean in here.  That makes me happy. 

So about the boys...they are just getting big.  It is so much fun to hang out with them, and since they can talk to me and tell me what they want to do, want to eat, and everything else, it never makes for a dull moment.  I was thinking about it the other night, and Tyler is to the age where I definitely have memories still.  For me, I remember snapshots of Kindergarten, and then more and more as it goes on.  That big guy started 1st grade last week.  Yes, 1st grade.  I told him in 1st grade I learned how to read and do math.  They taught him that in Kindergarten.  It's amazing how advanced kids are today.  We have a friend that has a senior in high school.  She is taking Advanced Placements classes for everything to earn college credit while in High School.  Amazing.

And Connor, his personality that is developing is amazing.  They are both such different kids, and after taking personality training classes at work, they could  not be more opposite.  Connor is sitting here next to me while I type this, as close to me as he can.  Tyler is pushing every limit he can (which is typical), because he wants to know exactly how much he can get away with before you completely lose it.  Connor just wants to make you smile. 

I find myself studying my boys more, interested in everything they are doing.  I find it hilarious that they both like to watch old Tom & Jerry cartoons, and Tyler likes to watch Disney Channel TV shows that are made for pre-teens.  "Good Luck Charlie" is his favorite.  Tyler also likes Lego projects with instructions to build things.  Connor would rather color and picture, and follow his own instructions. 

I promise not to be a stranger here.  Their lives are just getting interesting...

Tyler took this picture when we were on vacation this summer.  He took about 10 pictures of his Stitch doll.  It was cute, until we accidently left it there.  They mailed it to us, and that was the happiest reunion, ever!
