Stopping to smell the Roses

Life with growing boys has been busy. I've failed to stop and smell the roses (or blog.) This is my place to archive these passing days. I've been working at Eastwood preschool and doing some photography. Kevin continues to work at Midtown and real estate. The boys are growing and thriving at Lockeland Elementary....

I used to miss them so bad it would physically hurt to have them gone 7 hours a day from me. But somehow, the steady new rhythm has lulled me to a new norm...for better or for worse and we are content where we are. The boys love their friends...Kevin loves his job. I like mine ok.....We've had  a big year...not without darkness surrounding, but light continues to win overall and we are thankful.
