"Of all the animals, the BOY is the most unmanageable!" ~ Plato


Out and about

Here I go again, out and about, living my hectic life while my poor little blog sits here all but forgotten! So sorry. Life has been racing by and boy have we been busy. A lot has happened since I last updated. Jake turned 14 on the 1st of the month. HOLY COW! Already? We got him a really nice camera since he so wisely gave up the photography class in favor of a resource class (much needed to get homework done and for extra instruction) He'll be a high schooler next year. Wow. So, we got him a camera so he could still persue his interest even though he won't be taking any formal training just yet. He's been photographing everything! Branson just turned 5 months. I've yet to start him on solids but boy is he ready. He actually grabbed Jared's fork the other day while Jared was eating and managed to get a little something in his hand. Luckily he wasn't quick enough to shove it in his mouth. I'm a bit leary of starting the solids since he seems to have so many allergies and sensitivities already. BUT, the poor kid watches me eat and licks his lil lips. It's quite pathetic. Brennen is still a ball of energy. He's been behaving a bit better. I guess the novelty of the baby has worn off. He's taking naps again too which I LOVE! It's a sweet deal when your 3 year old will take a 2-3 hour nap every day. Jon is driving everywhere with his permit and he's pretty good. My car is huge so it's quite impressive that he's not hit anything yet. Let's hope he never does. Tucker was just sick with an ear infection and sore throat but he's back to school now. He still can't hear but he didn't really ever tend to listen anyhow. Tanner's still spastic as ever. He had a photo shoot for Pottery Barn Kids on Monday. He was there from 2-5:45 but only was on set for 30-45 minutes. Luckily he gets paid for the entire time so he'll get a fat check for that. He's super excited because he wants to buy so many things but really struggles with saving money. I just take his money now and hold it for him no matter how much he begs, I don't give in. He'd blow it in 2 seconds if I'd let him. We took the boys camping last weekend and are going again this Saturday. It should be fun. With my dad's illness, I've really started seeing things differently and we're doing more with the kids. Even when they're naughty. Hope all is well with you and yours....I'm off to karate!
