A Hard Day Ahead

As you know I run a daycare in my home and have been doing this for 9 years. I get to care for some wonderful kids on a daily basis. Right now I have one of the BEST group of kids in my daycare. I have my son Austin age almost 5 lol, my nephew James age 5, Laci age 2, Bella age almost 2 and then there is Mathew age 3. Mathew is the one who is making this day a very hard day today. Mathews Dad is in the Army, he gets transfered every 2 - 3 years. I have had Mathew in my daycare for 2.5 years and they are leaving today Dad got transfered to Colorado. This is wonderful for their family since Mathews Moms family lives there so they will have family with them all the time now. Mathew is a sweet little boy who can throw some of the biggest fits in the world but then make up for it after with hugs and kisses. He has a kind heart and loves to be around little ones that he can bring toys to and play with. He will be leaving today at about 4 and by 4:01 I am going ot be in tears. I can usually hold it together until they leave but I am not sure I will be able to with this one. He reminds me of my oldest boy Travis. He has be with someone who will keep their thumb on him or he will walk all over you but if you get the bluff on him and make him think you are a tough cookie then he listens and grows into a well desiplined sweet little boy.Mathew also has two older sisters. In the begining I wasn't sure how his oldest sister Emily would take to me she was very guarded. But.......once she realized I wouldn't hurt her little brother she warmed up to me and we developed a wonderful friendship. Taylor is the middle child and has a wonderful spirit about her. She is her own woman she loves fashion and is one of the most stylish girls I have ever met. I am going ot miss all of them soo much so I just pray that I will be able to hold back the tears so the kids don't see me cry.

9 years of Marriage

9 years ago today I married the love of my life!!! He is a wonderful man who took my son as his own and has changed my life forever. As you know we have four wonderful kids. Travis is now 13 (14 in a few months) and is doing great!! Cody is 12 (13 in a few months) is also doing great!! They both are doing great in school and playing sports like crazy. Travis is sporting a red cast on his right hand so baseball is put on hold for a while but he will get back to it. He was playing around with a kid at school and he punched him in the shoulder and fractured it pretty bad. Dakota is now 8 and is actually playing baseball this year ( he always use to say sports just isn't my thing lol) now he is going to give it a try. I am so proud of him he is also in cubscouts and recently took 1st in the pinewood derby in his den. Austin is 5 in 20 days and going to summer school to get use to being in a classroom setting. He is so excited about being a BIG boy lol. He is also playing T-Ball this summer I love watching the kids run in circles and play in the dirt and occasionally hit or catch a ball lol. So needless to say things are going very well for us. This was a post about my marriage but I guess it turned into a post about my family lol. One in the same I guess. I am one of the luckiest women in the world who 9 years ago today I married the love of my life and am looking forward to a the rest of my life with him.
