Where did August go?

Its already the 19th??!! Seriously?? When did that happen?

Its been a busy month. The kids have had playdates, sleepovers and lots of outside time ( up until last week at least with the heat).

Liam has been flipping through the Christmas wishbook lately and pointing out all that he wants... its too early for Christmas! He has been enjoying his bigger boy freedom. We let him go around the block to his friend's houses and to the park by himself even though I still have a hard time letting him go. He is 9 1/2 and I should let him have more freedom.. but its still hard. He is also talking about when he turns 10 next year and how he will be able to stay home by himself after school until I get home. Why does he want to grow up so fast?

Aidan is doing well. He taught himself to ride a 2 wheeler a few weeks back and is now riding like he has been doing it forever. Me thinks the scooter he got a few months back helped him find his balance.

Helyn has been talking up a storm. She really is coming out of her shell and starting to look, sound and act more like a 4 year old. She is always asking for help and now trying to recruit the boys into it. She calls them that... not her brothers but " My boys." "Mommy, where are my boys?"
Its so cute.

Work is settling in now. Things are getting easier. I am getting to know all the midwives and how they are.. its getting there.

Glen is doing ok with work. He is staying busy and I guess that is what counts.

Long over due post

Hi.. Its me.
Life is so busy with me working now.
The job is going well. I think I am finally finding my niche and getting comfortable now. The midwives are really helpful and understanding with my questions and yea.. Its good.

The kids are adjusting well too. They really don't seem to notice that I am gone during the day. LOL. They are happy to say " Bye Mom, see you later" and just as happy to greet me when I come home. Its good.

Becky came up last weekend to watch the kids while we went camping. It was great to see her and Ben. Ben gave me the best snuggles ever. Love him so much.

Camping was great. Very relaxing and the weather couldn't have been more perfect.

Glen's business is doing well. Its tough getting used to the lesser amount of a paycheck, but we are making due. We still have the house and the bills are getting paid.

Um... what else can I say?? Nothing much. I will try and get on at least once a week to update. If there is anything I haven't touched on, comment and ask and I will answer.

Going to Belleville this weekend with my friend Tanya for some time away. It will be fun.
