Two things happened in our house today!!!! Trace got an awesome report card. He is reading on a level 15, which is above average for this time of year! He needs to be a level 17 by the end of the year and he started off at a level 5 in August! To think that we almost held him back in K because he wasn't reading yet!
Also, Austin decided to show us today that he learned to ride his bike without us even knowing! He just started riding!!!! Very very cool! His bike is too small and we had promised them both that when they learn to ride, they get a new bike. Trace doesn't have any interest in learning yet, though. It's a little too dangerous for him! I'll keep ya posted on when he decides to take the leap!
Okay, so i bought twilight about 2 weeks ago and it is still sitting in the same place on my nightstand! I thought since i don't get to go to the movies....EVER, then reading the book be better for me. So, you ask yourself why haven't I started it yet? Well, if you have a clue, let me know, because I sure don't!
-our new president taking office -my garage sale this weekend -getting the boys ready for the camping trip
First, the pres! I have mixed feelings about him. As much as I would like to trust what he says and have hope that he can do the things he has promised. I just don't! I think he is a very nice man and a great father but I just don't see him leading our country. I pray that I am proven wrong, but I won't be holding my breath.
Second, I can't wait for the garage sale this weekend. I am looking at about 10 boxes piled in my hallway and can't wait to see them go. Hopefull I'll make some money as well! Put a little dent in all that Christmas shopping I did!
Third, the camping trip. My dad and Michael are taking the boys camping this weekend. Super exciting for them. They are going to get to fish, make S'mores, ride 4-wheelers, and sleep under the stars, what more could 2 little boys ask for?
You probably already know our story, but here is the short version for those that don't. Michael and I met in 6th Grade at Sarasota Christian. We started dating as Juniors in high school and we were married Dec. 30, 2000. We had our first little angel Trace on July 18, 2002. Our second, Austin, on November 26, 2003, our third, Ethan on March 2, 2007, and finally...... our fourth, Reece, on Nov. 10, 2009. In between all of that Michael started working as a Sarasota County Sheriff's Deputy on Sept. 11, 2003. He is currently working a School Resource Officer and is really enjoying the change from patrol. I am lucky enough to get to stay home with Ethan and Reece, now that our older two are in school all day! We have had our share of trials over the last few years and as hard as these things were to get through, I think it has made our marriage stronger and helped us realize that we can survive anything.
