Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone.
Somehow we made it though....

They say grief comes in waves, that is very true. Lately I feel like this wave is pulling me under.

On a happier note, Bear's hair is finally grown back where he had his surgeries. The scar still shows a lot though cuz he has to keep it so short for ROTC.
He still gets a lot of teasing in's getting old, but he still somehow manages to keep his cool and walk away.
I do feel kinda sorry for the first person who ends up crossing that line though, this kid is a walking ticking time bomb waiting to explode.
Counseling hasn't worked, I don't know what to do. The grieving waves plus being a teenager have been crashing down on him hard too. :(

The boys spent the night at their sisters so yesterday I was actually alone. You would think I'd love it, but I really did miss the sounds of having my boys around me. It was lonely.
I did treat myself to a movie. Going alone wasn't too bad, Breaking Dawn was AWESOME!! Yup, I love the Twilight movies. :)

Today I got to go pick them up so I better get my move on.

Speaking of their sister...I have got some new to share this week!!!

Have a beautiful day everyone.

Halfway There...

The weeks about half over!!!

Boggy Creek was great, totally freakin' awesome...the boys had THE BEST time ever!! For two days they were able to relax, have fun, laugh and forget. I can't even tell you how nice it was to not have to hover over them, to not worry if they were OK, to just leave them be with their camp pal, Paul.
Fun times...lots of memories!!

Kolin, in particular really needed this get-a-way. :)

Just trying to make it thru another day...

life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are...

memories are the treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls, to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely...

what we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us...

Boggy Creek Camp had a cancellation for family weekend, I got the call this morning that we were #1 on the waiting list and would we like to go...Heck Yes!!

There's His Sign...

This past Sunday Kolin's team advanced into game four of the playoff's, which was at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando.

I know Kolin was excited but I also know he was very sad because he wants his Dad to be watching him in the worst way.
Family times were great when we'd all travel together and Karl was always so proud of him.
Well, as soon as we pulled off the 408 and into the stadium parking lot....this truck was parked right there in front of us.

There was his sign..
