I love that my kids are so easy going. They are so easy going my Quaine wore pink hair for two months to support his step grandmother in her battle with breast cancer. Micah has let me paint his fingernail blue to fight the anti-bullying campaign. Olivia will wear whatever I ask her to as long as I can give her a reason for it. The picture above is from national wear pink day. The whole family participated including dad who wore a pink shirt to work. I'm very lucky and happy to have such a caring and supportive group of kiddos

Isn't it funny how life sometimes gets in the way of your plans for your life? I've had so many hopes and dreams over the years and it seems there are very few that ever come into existence. Well it is time to make a few come true. Since I gave up my blog to go back to work I have worked with so many great people with special needs. My life has been forever changed. I have now switched jobs and no longer work with those wonderful people but my heart is still there each day. I am now in a district office as the office administrator so I actually have "free time." What's that you say? I have no clue. I still haven't had much free time as it is in my nearly two months here. I spend my free time looking for new ways to make the business run smooth and more efficient. Quaine is about to turn 14. That makes me old right? I am certain it does or at least makes me feel very old. He keeps me on my toes. Always busy, he plays every sport that is offered in this area it seems. The kid is super tall measuring in at 5'10 3/4" a few weeks ago. I need to put some bricks on his head and make him stop! Micah is 11 and was diagnosed with Asperger's this past November. He's a silly boy with a heart of gold. He loves school and soccer. He loves his little sister too as long as no one is around. He says he is excited to go to junior high this fall but I think he is more excited about the freedoms that come with junior high. Cathryn aka Olivia aka Bob is 6 and such a DIVA! She is now playing softball and is pretty good. She can slam the ball as long as she remembers to "lock and load" each time she gets up to bat. She has really grown up and every time I look at her all I see is my sweet tiny baby girl. She is about to graduate kindergarten and has a classroom of best friends. She's definitely a socialite. Brandon has joined the free mason world. He's learned so much about God and is so interested in learning more. With his pushing we finally found a church here in Jonesboro that we like and are happy with. We are finally at a place in our lives where we don't feel like the roof is caving in and it feels like we are finally being blessed. I have now learned to crochet and knit! I am also in the process of getting an embroidery/sewing machine. I love to sew and my little machine just can't keep up with me. Add to that I am now selling Avon. I am definitely a person who can help you learn to keep yourself busy. Life is great, I feel blessed and I feel like there is finally an end to my tunnel.
