I am finally ok

So those that know my family know I come from a long list of women that never age past 25. I on the other hand am getting really excited since I turn 30 in October. Here is why.

1. I have graduated from college with a degree that I will be able to use when the time is right for me to go back to work. I love what I do and really enjoy the experiences that I get while I work.

2. I have 4, yes, 4 beautiful kids that make me young. I mean how old can I be when my oldest just turned 4? Not only are they great but they make me realize how boring my life would be without them.

3. I have finally come into my own. I have a huge love for cooking and canning, and I love to see my accomplishments sitting on the shelf ready to use.

4. I have an amazing husband that does more with the kids to help me out than most women I know do with thier own. He is the apple of my eye and I hope to have 60 more years with him. (Although if I live until I am 90, someone shoot me)

5. Last but not least- I am amazing. In the last 30 years I have become a great adult (suprise to those that knew me as a kid), I have began to teach my children the important things in life, I have a successful marriage, wonderful 4 children, great siblings and parents to do things with, and heck it just keeps getting better.

Crazy yet funny day

So Adele was up late last night screaming sick. My good friend Kathy was a life savor and gave me some advice and medicine that really helped. So today I got up early and took her to the Dr.'s office. When we got back I realized that our landlord was at the house with a arbor crew cutting down some old dead trees. I couldn't stay there and so I called Kathy again and intruded into her home. She was wonderful and gave us lunch, waffles with sprinkles, which my kids loved. She turned to Liam at one point and complimented him on his good manners. He replied "Yes, it is just because I am a nice boy". Ha- and who would have thought a 4 year old had such great self esteem.

The other day I was talking to my landlord about some canning items. We have a joint vegetable garden and she brought some fruit for me to can. Liam heard me on the phone and asked me who I was talking to. The conversation follows:
I told him, "Carol".
"Carol, our landlady?" He asked
"Yes, Carol" I said
"I like Carol", he said "She is a nice person, a nice farmer person".
"A nice farmer person? What makes you think she is a farmer?"
"She pulls weeds and gives us carrots, that means she is a farmer".
I laughed pretty hard. Then I called Carol and told her, it was so funny.

Soccer Monster

Liam has started his new thing, soccer. He was a little apprehensive about it on his first day of practice but he soon warmed up to his coach. The whole way home he kept saying "Bumblebees, I can't hear you, BUMBLEBEES (louder each time). I way switching between laughing and putting my hands over my ears... But super cute.

Here are some great pictures of his first game on Saturday. He loved it. He got to play half the game and then about 5 minutes before it was all over he walked off the field right to me. I told him to get back to the field, that the game was still playing. He said "I don't want to, I am too tired to play anymore". I told him I didn't care, he needed to go back and play. He finally got back on the field and wore himself out. It was a hoot. The kids were so great but I think the parents loved it even more than the kids. I am going to have a ball from this.

How cute is this? He got to kick the ball in bounds. Talk about excitement.
