Finally a new post
What a crazy week this has been. Thankfully, Homecoming is over. I survived another year of coronation and parade duties. It was the second week of school, so that only added to the stress.
On top of that, Olivia brought cousin Ross to "Bring a Friend Day" at dance. They were so cute to watch. She was tickled to bring her favorite cousin along.
I finally got some pictures of Ryan at his football game. What wonderful weather for it!
Life is busy, but the hot weather has made it that much more enjoyable. Heck at the Spud football game on Friday night, we all wore t-shirts and shorts/capris. How cool is that for a change?
The kids are enjoying school. I am getting the hang of teaching ninth graders. They are a different breed. I can really tell at this age a difference in maturity level--even from sophomores. The variation between the boys is fascinating. Some boys are huge already. Others, well let's just say that they aren't there yet. Behaviorally, the boys have a way to go. Thank goodness I still have upperclassmen too.
Brady...my sweet baby Brady isn't much of a baby anymore. I think he is already done with a bottle. He really decided that on his own. Lately at night he takes a few drinks, throws it, and comes back to it. Unfortunately he ends up with more milk on his face and clothes than in his mouth when he does this. Last night and tonight we just gave him a sippy cup of milk. He didn't notice a difference, and there was no mess. I guess it's a good thing, but when I stop to really think about it, that is one more phase of babyhood that's over. Where did the little baby who fit perfectly in my arms go?
He reminds us so much of Ryan. He is on the go, gets into everything, yells loudly, explores like crazy, and makes us laugh a lot. Wow it's gone by way too quickly.
