Little Racer!

Well I home from the Sandbox and as soon as I found out that Payton could ride is bike without training wheels I tried to get Myke to charge Payton's little pocket bike but she didnt want to be responsible for what could happen. I couldnt resist. Payton jumped right on and away he went. He has had a couple of good early get-offs, fortunately onto the grass, but he is learning fast.

Our Week

We have had a crazy week so far. The kids both started school and they love it!! They are excited to start in the new charter school and they both have amazing teachers. My favorite part is that they do everything electronically so no more paper clutter!! Our biggest event of the week is Aaron coming home!! He got here last night and we are so grateful to have him safely home with us!!! I knew he was coming for a while but I didnt tell the kids, we surprised them instead!! We showed up and had Aaron knock on the door and the kids answered it, it was awesome!! We are just so grateful that he was kept safe and is now home to stay!! The video is blurry i couldnt get it to focus but you can still hear the excitement pretty good!!

Really Close!!!

Today is my last day alone!!!!! He will be here tomorrow and I am so excited!!!!! The kids still dont know and I cant wait to surprise them. He will get here tomorrow evenging so I cant take him to school so I am just going to have him knock on the door instead and let them answer it. I cant wait to see the looks on their faces when they see who is on the other side of that door!!!!! It is going to be so much fun!! I am just so thankful that it is almost over and we can go back to being a family again, not that we ever stopped being a family but it will be nice to have our family be together again. I cant wait for him to get here and meet Emmet and check out how much the kids have grown and he gets to get to know us all over again. I am counting down the hours now and tomorrow I will be as giddy as a little school girl I cant wait to get to hold him and know that he is coming home to stay. And he has promised me some sleep so I will hold him to that! I will post pictures and I am hoping to get it on video and post it also.

Almost Home

HE'S ON HIS WAY!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got an email from Aaron this morning saying that the truck was loaded and they were just waiting for it to get dark and they were leaving!! When I got the email it was already 6pm there so they should be gone or just leaving by no. I am so beyond excited, but I am alone in my excitement because I am not telling the kids. I want to surprise them. He should be here right around the time school starts, so if they are at school when he gets here we are going to go down to the school to surprise them. It will be so much fun!! He cant wait to get here and get his babies and just be home and get back to life. We are excited only a couple more weeks now!

Aaron Update.

So Aaron has been given a new schedule and he will be leaving Iraq on Saturday, yes this coming Saturday August 8th. He should be here at home to stay by the end of the month. We are all very excited, but I am not telling the kids I am going to surprise them. That way if there are any delays then they wont be disappointed or let down in any way. I am excited to have him home but a little nervous at the same time. It is going be awesome to have him home, but we will have new stresses to go along with it. But I cant wait for him to get here and the kids will be exstatic!! It wont be long now!

A Good Book

I bought a book tonight, looking for a good uplifting read, and it was amazing! I finished this book in about 2 hrs maybe. It is called Behind Every Good Man Helping Your Husband Take The Spiritual Lead At Home by John Bytheway. He is one of my favorite speakers so I had to read it. It was so good and it really shed some light on how to be a better wife, mother, sister, and all out person. So if you ae looking for a good book to read I would recomend this one.
