Hello Again!!!

Hey there everyone!!! I have been one busy lady and have not had anytime to blog but I am here today!! Well here is a little update on me and my family. My husband has been doing good, he was in an accident involving the BIG Fire truck and the brush truck a few weeks ago (thankfully he and his boss were both able to walk away fairly unscathed) and he is now just thankful to be alive and is enjoying life to it's fullest. He is spending as much time with the boys as possible and loving every minute of it!! Travis is doing amazingly good!! He is making all A's and B's and 1 C+ but that is going up to a B as we speak. He played an amazing football season to his team went undefeated the whole season on A team and B team until this last game, they played the other Middle school here in town who were also undefeated and lost the A game by 1 touchdown but B team went undefeated all season. It is amazing how much he has matured in the last year, I am sooooo proud of him!! Cody is also doing great!! He is making A's and B's and 1 C also lol and has had a great football season too. His team went undefeated all season also and they just won their Bowl game this weekend!! Both my older boys have some major talent when it comes to football. Now for Dakota......oh my Dakota lol..... he is in the third grade now (how did that happen?) He is really doing great in school he is making all A's and B's and seems to be absorbing all that is taught very well!! I am going to have to get my camera and take pictures of all of Dakotas art work and do a blog just on that one day soon. He is really turning out to be an amazing little artist!! He got that from Grandpa Haslag I guess because it wasn't me!! LOL I didn't inherit that talent.....thanks Dad you passed on allergies to me but no art talent lol. He is doing Cub Scouts again this year and we took him back to his old school for it this year( last year was no fun!!) He is happy to be back with his old friends even if he only gets to see them once a week. I will have to post Cub Scout pictures soon also. Now for the littlest boy, Austin, oh where to start.......Hmmmm....well he is in Kindergarten this yearand he absolutely LOVES IT!!! He has been coming home with new info everyday. He came home one day and put tape all over my house and told me those were his corners (i guess they do different stations at school called corners) He then goes to each corner and does an activity all night long. His teacher sent home a paper stating the expectations through the year, here is what it said. Kids are expected to be able to say and recognize and write their upper and lowercase alphabet, Count to, recognize and write to 110, know their home address, phone number and their birth date all by the end of the school year. Austin can recognize, say and write his alphabet both forwards and backwards, he can count to 110 and he stops there. We say can you count higher than that and he says "well yeah but my teacher said we only have to count to 110 so that is as high as I need to go" LOL. He also has started reading simple books with very little help from me I only help him on bigger words and even then he can sound out most of those word to. He can do simple math and he loves patterns. He knows more now than they require at the beginning of first grade!! Needless to say I am one proud Momma!! ALL my boys are doing great and life is good!! Oh and I am doing good to.....not much ever changes as far as me, I wake up, I babysit all day and then I enjoy my family in the evenings. So there is the update of all my men, hope everyone is doing great and is enjoying life!!!

I'm glad Doug and his boss were able to walk away from the accident without serious injury!

Sounds like your boys are doing fantastically in school, and enjoying everything they're doing outside of school too! :)

LOL @ Austin!

Nice to hear from you once more!!!

I'm glad your hubby was okay - I bet the accident "really woke him up".

Your boys sound great!! Can't wait to see some pictures! Your mom has awesome picture taking talents - did you get of that talent from her? :)

Hey Julie. I about fell over when I saw a post from you.

I'm mighty proud of those boys of yours. Makes a grandma proud. Austin is definitely going to keep those teachers on their toes. They just don't know it yet.

The accident Doug and Jack were in was scary. Thankfully they are both ok.

And you - you are the busier than a one armed wall paper hanger. I don't know how you do it.

Unfortunatley, I passed on the lack of drawing abilities to you. Oh, and my bad teeth. But you got my wonderful personality (hehehehe) and beautiful smile. Hey! I'm doing the typing. I can say anything I want!

Love you hun.

LOL @ Deanna (yep, if you're doing the typing, you can say anything you want...LOL)

I was also glad to hear Doug and his boss weren't seriously hurt in that accident. Nice to hear he's spending as much time with the boys as he can.

All of your boys sound like they're doing great in school. That's good to hear in this day and age. (wow...110, eh?)

I'll check back from time to time to see if you've posted any pictures.
