The weather is sucking and we are unable to get tee ball games in.  It sucks and Payton is bumbed whenhe can't go.  He is really really enjoying it.

What a day!

We had our IEP for Payton today to get him ready to go to kindergarten.  Well it was great.  He will have speech for 100 minutes a week so about 20 minutes everyday.  Everyone was so nice.  I think we are really going to like this speech therapist. 

We also have a new addition to the family.  A mommy bird made a nest in one of my flower pots and there were three eggs in it and one has hatched.  Payton has loved seeing the eggs and now like to see the baby bird from a far.  No worries we are not letting him get close.  We hope the other two will hatch soon. 

Well that is it from our house.   We had a great day and looking forward to tomorrow. 

Happy Thursday to you all.

So blessed!

Have you ever stepped back and look at what you have right in front of you.   I think most of us just live in the moment and never think about this.  Tonight I was outside with Payton and Braxton and took a step back and took a mental snap shot.  I wanted to remember the smile on Braxton's face when he was riding his tricycle up and down the sidewalk.  The way Payton runs when he sees a car and then laughs.  How they both want my attention at the same time and get mad when I can only listen to one of them at a time.  P and B are growing up so fast and I feel like I don't take a step back and look at them now and realize they will only be three and five for so long.   As a family I believe we realize how blessed we are by everything we have and the family that we are and I feel blessed that we will be able to grow as a family.  No matter what we are all blessed and have to remember to step back and appreciate the moments a little more.  Don't forget how blessed you are. 

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
