Time to catch up....

Ok here I go again.... catching up on stuff.

There has been So much that has happened since my last post. I guess that is why you have not seen a post from me lately. I have been Buuusssyyyyyyy!

First Off I have to say a BIG belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my first born, Tyler! He celebrated his DECADE birthday on July 27th. He had a great time and still wishes it could be his b-day. (Then again, I guess every kids does.) Here is a picture of him with his new goalie hockey bag. I have to say...I don't think that he was too thrilled with the new bag. But he did need it. Doesn't that count?

He was most excited about his new gaming head phones that he got. I think he talked about these day after day until he got them. He was VERY excited to get these.

School STARTED here last week, too. Yep, our summer is officially over. Bummer! Even though it seems like we had a short summer, I am perfectly ok with it because come October we get a 2 week fall break. Tyler is now in 5th grade and Kyle is in 3rd. Here is their "first day of school" picture.

They both love their teachers. Tyler has another male teacher, Mr. Mattis. He is very funny and seems like he is going to make it a fun filled year of learning for him, and the class. Kyle has the same teacher that Tyler had for 3rd grade, Mrs. Johnson. She is wonderful and we are SO SO happy that she is teaching our child again this year. It should be a great year.

Well, with the start of school there also comes the start of my part time job. I work at the school part time as a playground aide. For some reason, this seems to be viewed as the low ranking job at the school. I am not sure exactly why that is, but let me just say that no matter what people think or say about it...I love it (most days, ha). I love being with the kids and getting to know them. Last year I worked 2-3 days out of the week, however it looks like I will be able to pick up more days.

Now for the hockey and soccer updates...Well, we are almost to the end of another hockey season. We have a few more games before we start the play offs. This season will officially be over at the end of August. It has been a rough season as we have not won many games. The last game we played was one of them that we did win. In fact, Tyler almost got his first shut-out. The other team was able to get a puck past him with only 11.6 seconds remaining in the game. It was a bummer, but we did still get the win. Way to go Tyler!!

Soccer has started for Kyle already. He has been practicing with his new team for about a month and is now playing on an indoor league with them too. This should be an exciting year for Kyle as it is his first year to be playing on a club team. Tyler and I will also be playing soccer again this fall season. We don't start until September.

Guess that is all for now.....I will finish catching up later.

I love pictures of the Tyler of holding the headphones! He is so cute! I can relate to being bummed about the hockey bag! Remember always getting back to school clothes and supplies for our birthdays? Oh and speaking of Birthdays, Happy birthday to YOU!

I think Tyler looks like his Daddy in that silly picture with his headphones. I wonder why that is... ;)

Yes, you forgot to mention your own birthday, Amy dear! Happy birthday!
