I’ve been so busy! I have no idea where to start on my catching up! Maybe a quick update on everyone and then I can share some pictures from the last few weeks! 🙂
J3 (4) has been dealing with an illness lately – some pretty high fevers. 🙁 But he’s also becoming quite the waterboy! While he’s technically not swimming, he loves to dive his head down in the water and tread water – if he could just figure out how to kick he’d be moving! Here is a recent pic of J3 watching his cousin’s Tball game:
J2 (8, almost 9!) has just been enjoying his summer! He and Carson (his local cousin) have been enjoying lots of imaginary play. He’s not looking forward to school starting in a few weeks – and I guess we’ll be going to Sacramento at least once a week for his speech therapy. I’ve been trying to order his curriculum for this fall – what a crazy experience THAT has been! Here is a picture of J2 and Daddy that we took last weekend on a picnic:
J1 (10) has been enjoying the computer lately – thankfully we have a PC that we use for schoolwork. It was really messed up earlier but Eric got it working – and then I was able to set it up for the internet with some great parental controls and J1 has been creating Neopets and such – I need to remember to send him an email today! If you are a friend and want to email J1, you need to email me first, because only those I approve can send him email…but he’d love to hear from you and it’s great reading and writing practice! Here is J1 and one of his adventures this summer – a lemonade stand! (more pics later I hope)
(note the 2 different prices – depending on the color of your cup – which were the SAME size! LOL)
Eric (older than me!!) has been enjoying his summer, working like crazy to get his curriculum figured out, already finished the newest Harry Potter, continues to battle his diabetes, and just took a temporary office job that was offered him for the rest of the summer. We weren’t looking for anything, but the Lord brought this to him and he took it. A little extra money is always nice! Searching for a pic of Eric – here is one with his brother on the 4th of July – was THAT a HOT day! Ugh!
Me (39 in 12 days) well, just so you know…there will be NO picture of me. I take the worst pictures! Ugh! Plus I’ve had it with being overweight! So, until I lose some of this weight – no pics! Hopefully I’ll have something to post soon! I finally had my sleep study and I had severe sleep apnea. I’ve had my CPAP machine for two nights and I’m sleeping really well! I’m still working for the Homeschool Magazine and really enjoying it! Let me clarify – I’m not writing anything – I’m doing lots of behind the scenes jobs that fit my organizational and computer skills! And, the people are the greatest!! I’m also still doing webpages for local nonprofits – I’m currently working on the Yolo County YMCA webpage. I’ll be sure to share the link when something is ready to go online. ok…I’ll give up…here is a pic of me and baby Kaya:
What? What are you complaining about – that’s my arm! LOL
Ok…here are random pics from our summer! Enjoy!!

Ok…this will probably be enough to get you by, right!?! 😉 LOL I promise to be better about writing!
