Two kids, two different ways to sing Sweet Home Alabama.

Marshall: Sweet Home Alabama, Wisconsin Blue

Ben: Sweet Home Aldabama, I'm coming from the moon

They crack me up! They also really like Justin Bieber right now so I've heard a lot of his songs the past few weeks.

It's been awhile...

Lots of updates this time! Going to go in bullets because it's way easier than trying to make all of this flow!

  • I've decided to start blogging here on a more regular basis for our family and close friends and try not to put so much on Facebook. We've had a really busy couple of months. My 14 year old sister Briana came to live with us in January so it's been pretty interesting getting to parent a teen! For the most part she is a lot of help and she has matured by leaps and bounds!
  • Both boys are playing soccer for the YMCA. Marshall really loves it and does well. Ben didn't care for it and acted scared the first few times but he is starting to warm up to it. They have a great coach and he makes it fun.
  • We are almost done with our first year of school! Our area has been rezoned to a different school district so Marshall will be starting First grade at a new school. I was upset at first but we toured it last night and it is AWESOME! It was just built a few years ago and it's very up to date on its technology and the music department....WOW! Marshall loved it so I hope he adjusts well!
  • Ben is already signed up for preschool next year! SUPER excited for that..and maybe a little bit sad! But it's time.
  • I will be finished with school at the end of this month. I will hold certificates as a Medical Assistant and a Medical Insurance Specialist. Not sure where I will end up working but I'm excited to start this new Chapter!
  • We FINALLY closed on our house. Almost 2 months after our original closing date. We have slowly been remodeling since then. Painted our kitchen (the color is peach cobbler and it's stunning!) and replaced all the knobs, hinges, and light fixtures (all were gold...yuck) Also replaced the white range hood with a black one to match our stove and other appliances. I LOVE, love, love the way it turned out! Now I just have to add a little more decor and I will be satisfied.
  • We took the boys on their first camping trip for Marshall's 6th birthday and that was pretty exciting! We fished and hiked and just sat around the camp fire and watched the boys explore nature. The worst part was sleeping. We just took sleeping bags and it SUCKED! The first night it rained and our tent leaked. The second night it was really freaking cold! I moved Ben into my bag because he wouldn't say in his and that child is like a furnace! I woke up sweating! All in all, it was a great family weekend.
  • We are heading home the first of July to visit our family and go to our first Card.inals game. The boys are excited as am I! We all have our shirts and we are ready to go!
  • I've gone 9 months without an allergic reaction (knock on wood) It's getting easier to know what to avoid. Thankfully, no new allergies have popped up and my OAS ones are still mild. (this are the foods that I can eat cooked but not raw and they don't cause an anaphylactic reaction) Those are: potatoes, carrots, celery, apples, cherries, peaches, and chocolate. The ones that cause anaphylaxis are all tree nuts, peanuts, and strawberries. I just continue to hope that the boys don't have any food allergies.
  • Ben and I just had our cavities filled for the first time. His were mostly in between his teeth (no spacing between his teeth.AT.ALL.) but one was kind of bad so they had to put a cap on it. It was rough and I felt awful for him. I hope we can prevent more from happening and that he doesn't have issues with the spacing when his adult teeth come in. I had 5 filled (I've know about three of them since I was 19 and the other two I got after my pregnancies) I've been putting it off and putting it off and finally just went and had it done. I ended up having all 5 done in 30 minutes and and without anything to numb me. It hurt but it wasn't too bad. Just glad to have it done!
  • Marshall told me the other day that he wants to be a kindergarten teacher and an astronaut! 
I think that brings everyone up to date for the most part. I'm going to try really hard to put all the cute stuff the boys say on here and lots of pictures! They get funnier everyday!

Bad blogger!!

I'm such an awful blogger! It's been like 7 months since my last blog! I put a lot of stuff on facebook so I forget to come here and really "write" it down.

We are all doing great. Marshall is doing amazing in school and Ben will be turning 4 in a couple of weeks! Very hard to believe that he will be starting preschool come August! My class starts back on January 11th and I should be done in May! Dustin and I are buying the house we have been renting. We close February 15th! It's been a whirlwind of paperwork and craziness but we are excited! That's all for now! Hopefully I can think of some more stuff to update everyone on. Love you all!

Just some updates!

Once again, lots of stuff has happened since I last blogged! Marshall decided to go to "big boy" school so we have decided to let him...so no homeschooling for us...at least for now. We have him all registered and he starts August 5th! He is super excited and I am excited for him.

Dustin has surgery on his nose 2 weeks ago and recovery is going well. He goes back to work tomorrow and I'm sure he is ready to get out of this house!! I'm pretty ready too. I've stayed here pretty much 24/7 to take care of him...but both boys have strep throat so we will be staying in for another couple of days.

I've also started running a few times a week. I'm doing a program called Learn to Run. It trains you to run a 10K in 13 weeks. I don't know about all that but I'm following it and hoping to get my butt in shape. I still have some winter weight that I need to lose.

I've been slacking on taking pictures so I'll try to get some new one's up here next time I blog.

I'm getting really bad at keeping this thing up to date. A lot has happened in the last 4 months. Dustin accepted a new job here so we should be here for another three years. We moved to a much nicer house and we love it. Marshall celebrated his 5th birthday in April and we had a big party for both boys and they had a blast.

Even though we are staying here, we have still decided to homeschool. I have already sent in our letter of intent. We also decided to send him to blended school. It is a great program that they do for homeschooled kids so that they know what a school setting is like. He will go on Tuesday's and Thursdays for Science and Math. Everything else I will teach him at home. As of now, he can read about 5 words and he is learning to count syllables. It's so amazing to watch him learn every single day. I love it!

We all made it back to Florida safe & sound about 2 weeks ago. We are enjoying some pretty nice days...sure beats the snow Missouri has right now!

When we got here I tried to get Marshall back into preschool and his former preschool has no openings. The director told me to call the VPK office to see if he was eligible for the summer program and it's been almost 2 weeks and they STILL haven't called me back. We still don't know if/when we will be PCS'ing, so Dustin and I made the decision to homeschool him until we know and are settled. We don't want to keep pulling him in and out of school. I know that will be his life until we are out of the Air Force but I want to put it off for as long as possible. We are using www.time4learning.com and he loves it. We do a few hours of online work and then he practices his writing. He actually ASKS to do his schoolwork! Since homeschooling is pretty flexible, we are still getting in lots of time with friends. I'm hoping that he will want to do a some type of sport this spring so we can meet some more friends! He played soccer when he was three but I didn't feel like he was ready for it so I'm hoping at almost 5 he will be. Ben is a little different at 3 so I think he might play this year too. They are starting to get bigger and we are finding that we can do more "fun" stuff with them.

We also found out this week that our rental house is going up for a short sale so we are currently looking for a new house. Yeah..so wish us luck on that one! Love you all!
