This video is from the other day. I totally forgot that we had this little baby pool so I drug it out and blew it up. I was even a super nice Mommy and despite the 80 degree temp outside I pulled the hose into the basement to fill up the pool with warm water. Logan Daniel had a blast. The other baby, baby Logan, is a good friends baby who was staying the night with us. While out big pool provides lots of fun for all ages the baby pool provided this Mommy with some much needed relaxing in the sun while watching the kids laugh:) God is Good

Today has been a emotionally challenging day as my patience continues to be tested with this dag gone Jeep. All I can really say is I hope to settle the claim within the next 3 weeks so Matt can help me pick out a new vehicle and we can wipe our hands clean of the never ending pile of crap.

Today our little girl graduating from Pre-School. Where did the time go? It is hard to believe that just a few short 10 months ago we were putting our little girl on the school bus. She has grown so much and learned a lot.

Today was my day to watch a good friend's children for her. So we set out this morning to hit up the grocery store before meeting up with Mitchell and Dylan. We picked them up around 9:40 AM and headed right home to hang out and play before lunch. After lunch and nap time Kresta called and we invited her over to bbq and enjoy some cupcakes. While we waited for our friends Mitchell, Emma, and Logan helped make cupcakes. They had a blast. Once our friends arrived we played in the basement and then headed upstairs to get dinner ready. After dinner and baths the kids were in bed by 8 PM and I got started on the next day's activities.

This post is early because I know I will not have a chance to post again for a few days because we have a super busy weekend. The pics above our from our trip to the ice cream stand the other day. After my long run I told Emma we would go pick out a treat and she wanted a ice cream cone. We had a great time:)

We had a special visitor in town today. Matt's 2nd cousin on his Dad's side was in New York and made a trip to Watertown to take the kids and myself out to lunch. We enjoyed chatting with them and of course I enjoyed talking all about Matt.
After picking up the Honda from the detailer we were going to hang out with Kresta and Katie tonight but it became apart that I was a tad cranky as the kids were growing more and more tired. So here we are tonight. The kids are now in bed and I will be headed that way shortly.

I have the best friends. These are just 2 of my really good battle buddies. Kresta is holding the cell phone and Katie is holding her son. We (along with one other friend) have gotten together many times this last week to let the kids play, eat, laugh, and pass the time. These girls mean more to me than words can possibly explain. Us girls and kids got together for some playtime (and gin and tonic), dinner, and a parade last night. Followed by bed time and a fire for the adults.

As the days go on we definitely continue to have struggles. It is a daily battle with Emma as she continues to miss Daddy and seems to be reminded of this every time she mis-behaves. Logan is doing well. We walking slowly every morning down the stairs as we talk about the "I Love Daddy Wall" Logan loves this and enjoys smiling at every picture as he says "Daddddddyyyy".
I am doing GREAT!! We are at the 30 day mark until my husband will be home. I am so anxious to have 2 full weeks with Matt. I am busy dreamin up all the plans I continue to change everyday. Time will only tell what we actually end up doing. But I can guarantee that camping will be involved!!

I feel awesomely blessed these days. I have two great kids that definitely keep me on my toes but also keep me smiling and laughing. I have a wonderful God that is watching over me. He has changed me in more ways than I can express right now. I feel his arms around me and know that the choices I have made are good ones. I have a great family that watched out for me and pours their love into my life. I have a beautiful Army family. My friends are my life line right now. They continue to encourage me to smile, laugh, and see the positives within each day. My friends allow me to be me and express my ever changing feelings and emotions. I also have a pretty hunky hubby who will be home in 30 days!! (give or take a few) Life is wonderful.

We had a super busy day. The morning was spent with my Katie's kids and then the kids went to Day Care for most of the afternoon. While I ran some errands and got a 7 mile run in. We then rushed home to take baths and eat dinner before the baby-sitter showed up to watch the kids so I could go to bible study. This was a hard day for me. The kids were super tired and just wanted me to stay home. I did get myself out the door and the baby-sitter did a great job distracting them.
