Catching up...



Okay, I am horrible at keeping this updated! We have had quite a lot going on the past few months, I will see if I can summarize it for you! My job with Southern Living at Home has gotten off to a slow start, but not bad. I am really having fun and meeting new people! The boys are doing great, they are just finishing up soccer for the season. They were on the same team this year which made it really nice to only have one game a weekend instead of two! At the game last week Ty scored 3 goals! GO TY!!!! They are both still enjoying school and doing quite well. Ty has applied to be on a science team, and we are waiting to hear if he made it. They were only picking like 2 or 3 third graders to join the team. I think he has a good chance to be on it, and I am not just saying that because I am him Mom! :) I will let you know how that turns out. Both of the boys are now in Scouts also. We took them on a camping trip, and Devon ended up sleeping in the tent with Jon and I because he was scared to be in his tent with Ty. They had a fun weekend of hiking, campfires, and blow darts...ahh scouting! Okay, the blow darts were made out of toothpicks and cotton, but still it is a skill they need to learn, right? Jon and I also got to go away for a weekend! We spent a whole 32 hours in California! We went for a friends wedding. It was fun to see some of you there, and if we didn't see you and you didn't even know we were on the west coast...please forgive us, we were only there for 32 hours! Next, my parents were here for 2 weeks! We had a great visit with them. The boys were out of school for part of the time, so we drove down to Savannah, GA. It was fun! What an amazing little town...we also went out to Hilton Head, SC and Tybee Island, GA. When we got back, I put my dad to work! He finished painting a few stairways, started painting my dining room, and put some IKEA stuff together for me! Thanks Dad!!! He tried to fix my garage door opener also, but I think it is a hopeless case and will just need to be replaced! So, I have told you about the boys, and me so I guess I will fill you in on Jon. He left on the 3rd for Colorado. They are taking the Crowns concert on the road! He will be back on the 20th. Yes, he will be gone for almost 3 weeks...I know, I think it is a long time also! So far the boys and I are doing fine. I have some projects lined up to keep me busy, oh and lots of movies! hmmmm....is there anything I forgot? Fall here is beautiful...the colors are amazing. I almost have trouble driving around because I want to look at the trees! They look different everyday! The trouble with fall is that the leaves actually fall...all over my lawn! So, I guess with Jon gone I need to find time to rake leaves also. Our weather is supposed to be back up to about 80 on Friday, so I think I will rake then. Okay, I think that is it..I will try to be better about this!
