Where Were You Wednesday

I have been slacking in sharing my Where Were You Wednesday posts that a friend of mine hosts over at Monica's Mom Musings This is the 6th week so I have been really really slacking.
This week, Monica is asking us to share the 23rd photo in our 11th album that are saved on your computer.
Here is mine for this week. This is one of the puppies our dog Rosa had back in April 2010. This was our Mr. Red and his name is now Bruin and belongs to a gal who lives in Rhode Island. Our dog having pups was an accident and it was an accident I would never want to repeat again. It was a lot of work and we were preparing to move with the military at the same time. It was a great learning experience. It was full of puppy breath and sweetness but it was quite overwhelming at the same time.  Our dog had 8 puppies. 6 males and 2 females and they all looked almost exactly like this little guy (Who is not so little because he is a lab)
Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!!!!!! Stay safe!

Where Were You Wednesday? Week 2

It's another week and it is time to reveal my Week 2 Where Were You Wednesday post! If you want to join in the fun, head on over to Monica's Mom Musings and link up!
This week we need to share our photo in our 10th album (saved photos on your computer) and the 3rd photo. (10/3)
My album ended up being a very small album and only had 2 photos in it. It was my Picasa album where I had messed around with 2 photos. This is my son back in the spring at a local playground where we live. Look at the determination in his eyes.
Hope you all have a wonderful week and decide to play along over at Monica's Mom Musings and stir up some memories by looking back at your old albums!

Looking forward to sharing with everyone!
This week Monica asked that we share the photo in our 9th online photo album and the 3rd photo in that album. Back in May 2012 after seeing the Avengers, my son was in love with the character Thor. He just had to have the Thor hammer and used an old receiving blanket as a cape. This Halloween he is hoping to be Thor and he has been attempting to grow out his hair!
Hop on over and join in the fun!

The Last First

Tomorrow is a very bittersweet day here.
Tomorrow my youngest will be having his very first day of school.
It is the last first day of school.
Of course, not the last first day of school but the last of our children will have their very first day of school
My son will be going to a public all day Pre-K program.
Only one of my 4 had 1/2 day Kindergarten.
That was in Connecticut.
She had a bunch of medical stuff going on and all day K would have been too much for her.
My youngest will still be here for his Kindergarten year so he will also attend K all day.
He is very excited about going to school.
He got to meet his teacher the other day and see his classroom.
My second born will be starting her first day of middle school.
This summer could not go fast enough for her.
She loves going to school.
She was very independent at her open house night to learn her schedule.
My oldest will be entering the 7th grade tomorrow and her schedule was messed up.
It was overwhelming to her.
I am hoping they all fall in to a wonderful routine easily.
I just can't believe for the first time in 9 years I will have no children during the day.
Time for this momma to get a job!

It's Been A Long time

I have not updated in a while. Things have been a new kind of normal around here for sure.  I have been settling in to our little life here but it has not been without its pitfalls.
I have made some amazing new friends and we have gone and experienced some fun things.
My father in law passed away in February so we had to take a very unexpected trip to Georgia for the funeral.
I was tagged in something by a friend Monica so I will need to catch up on that too.
The kids are really settled in to our new life here and have made great friends and have gotten involved in many different youth activities in the community.
My eldest recently got braces on her teeth and they have moved so much already and are so straight! It's amazing and so worth the money!
I will leave you with that for now...

Santa 2011

Well, here it is. The photo with Santa for the year. We had to wait nearly 2 hours to get this picture.  The kids were all starving. Then the picture they printed cut 1/2 Ashley off so we had to go back and have them reprinted. Oh, and I attempted to get them to all wear a red/green type outfit that was holiday-ish. Guess Kiley didn't get the memo.
So, VOILA! Here ya go!
