The urge to write....

It has been how many years??
I suddenly have the urge to write again.
So much has happened in my life the last 2 years, some good, some bad.
But I know I don't want to go over the past....just move on with the future and whatever it holds. One thing I am sure of, is that there is a path for me in life to follow. And even when I am unsure of where it is leading me, God seems to know.
In the end, it always works out.

I think I need to remember that lately again. This month has been REALLY hard.
Oh, I have a new job ;)

I am an instructor at the college I went to. I am teaching Health Care Assistants.
I am just about finished my second course, and have had huge success :)
My students are great, and they have really made me feel like I was doing a great job.
I have been loving it.

BUT, sadly home adjusting has not been fun for anyone.
We have not used much daycare and this means the Mr. has changed into all evening shifts. HARD for him and me. We play tag. I come home, he tags me I am it, and he leaves.
I dont know if me going back to work was the right thing right now, with Liam still home.
I have not been happy with how its been going, its taken a toll on everyone.
Maybe I should have waited until Liam was in school....
I have one more course in Jan, and I know I cannot deal with working opposite shifts. I miss my husband and its not healthy for US. maybe for others they can manage, but not us.
Otherwise, I may have to not take any more contracts for awhile.

My family comes first. If it is at risk, then I need to reconsider this.
They way its going, something needs to change before its too late....

Speaking of kids.
Arianna is 10
James is 9
Liam is 3.

I guess its been over 2 years since I have been here lol.
Arianna is in girl guides, James is a REP hockey player and Liam is working on his skating to chase his big brother down :)

Happy Birthday James!

We celebrated James' 6th birthday on tuesday. We took him our for dinner to Montana's. He is having a costume Halloween party on October 24th with his friends...I think 13 lol...yikes.
Should be fun, I am planning on the fun and games now!
James has also been on his team for a week or so. He loves it. He is skating very well, he just gets puck shy I think lol. Too much pressure when you are in a game to perform, he misses the puck lol. too cute. I am sure we will see major changes to his game, as he is on the ice sometimes 5 times a week!!! I LOVE watching, so my thing :) Liam does too ;)
I have been busy on the PAC at the school. Just did my first newsletter that will be going home with all the kids today :)
I am also going to start planning for a school spring carnival! My idea, and I want to make it happen lol. I loved them as a kid, and want my kids to have them too :) So yes VERY busy mom, some days I swear I am out all day or cleaning up in the kitchen!!!
Here is some pics from the birthday day! He got his wish the slap chop and he got a bolt Wii game.

Back to school

The kids just finished their first week back in school.
They are both loving it, and James says full days at school are "awesome". :)
They are not yet in their permanent classrooms, that comes tomorrow. The school has to verify enrolment and all that before they put them in their classes for the rest of the year. Right now they are just places alphabetically.
I have to say I love having them both in school. That annoying half day kindergarten really limits what you can do in a day!!
Liam does way better on a schedule as well. His naps go after morning drop off and after school pick up, so it works great!
He also has been treating me to some real sleep lately lol. He went 730-5 the last 2 nights. I dont expect it to last but I will take it for now haha.

James started try outs for hockey today. I saw the man sitting with his paper scoring them on different things. They have to do this to make sure all the teams are even with skilled players.
I have to say I was nervous that James was going to be one of the weaker ones, because he was when he did his summer camp (he was in an advanced class with kids who had played a year of hockey already), but boy did he surprise me!
He did awesome. He was a strong one!! I guess being with the advanced kids really worked for him!!!
I loved watching him, I cant wait until he is on his team and playing :) :) :)

Arianna has started figure skating. She is having a ball. She has lots to learn, but it will be nice to watch her progression as well!!

Liam is 8 months and still not moving lol. He just sits and reaches lol. Well, he can move, in a circle!! He has no desire to crawl. he makes no attempt even close to it lol. He actually hates being on his tummy. He prefers being upright, jumping, standing or walking in his walker. (backwards only still too lol)

hmmmm. that is about all that is new here :)
Need to take some recent picture :s

One more week!!!

Where has summer gone??
I have to say this was the busiest summer for us in a long time. We did too much lol.
We just finished a week of hockey camp with James.
Now, it's time to get ready for the school year and all the after school activities we are doing. We have something every day after school!!!
I have been sick for the last 2 weeks. I had a brutal sinus infection. Liam ended up with something that was giving him fevers and making him miserable.
So, its been a long couple weeks.
I am still not 100% and I think my body is having a tough time recovering due to stress. There has been a lot of it here, and I don't see it getting better any time soon. I just need to find some way to cope and handle it...or else lol.
Nothing big planned for the last week. Just trying to get the kids to bead earlier and up earlier lol. Even Liam is used to sleeping in. Today we started the change. Maybe he will even go to bed earlier for me lol.

James' Room

We finally caved and moved Arianna out into her own room. It was time.
We were tired of the bad bed times.
And come school time again, I dont want to be dealing with it
So, here is James in his room now that it's all his. Lots of room for him to build his trains now.
Here, Liam is stopping by in his walker lol

And here is Arianna in her new room :) she loves it. Wants it to be a princessy lol
She has a large bookshelf and toy shelf at the end of the bed on the wall not shown in this picture.

Both kids have slept great being in their own rooms :)

Summer at an end

Only a few more weeks and we are back to school!

wow this was one busy summer for us. we did so much travelling. All went great and we had a blast though.
Arianna is now 7. Turning into quite the little lady! we spent her birthday weekend in Penticton.
Liam is doing well. Sitting up on his own well. and now has started walking when you hold his hands. He is no where near crawling, part of me wonders if he will ever crawl, and will be an early walker...hmmm my brothers walked between 9 and 10 months.
James is starting hockey camp next week. Get him ready for the fall hockey season :)
-I have been super sick. I am in need of some catch up sleep.
Just wanted to put a quick update on here.
I guess some pictures would be good too ;)
In due time..Nap time for Liam is approaching....

Family Vacation

We are in Brockville Ontario right now visiting my husbands family. The time difference is 3 hrs ahead of home. It did not take the kids and I long to adjust, thank goodness, but I am sure going home it will be a nightmare lol.
Liam has not been sleeping the best....making for one tired mommy.
I think he is teething now too, which does not help.
I can't really blame him. He is not is his bed, his schedule is off by a few hours and there is so much so see here lol.
The weather has been nice. The first couple days were cool, followed by gross humidity, then a hot one. I love the heat.
Especially when there is an inground pool right in the back yard!
The big kids are spending hours in the pool a day. They love it. And I think now hubby has decided he wants a pool now too ;)
It is so nice to see the cousins. The kids are loving it, as they are all close in age. SO fun. It really is sad we are so far away.
AND that is is SO expensive to come out east. Something we cant do often sadly :(
I am enjoying having others help with Liam. But, now he likes to cry when mommy leaves the room. nice. lol
we were treated to a boat cruise around the thousand islands. It was beautiful...and sad that we could buy and island with a cottage for the price of our BC house lol.
we would love to one day be living on the waterfront.
we are headed to new york tomorrow to do some shopping then up to ottawa the next day.
the trip is going by way tooooo fast and we will all be so sad to leave.
well, better get back to the family :)
