Mom and Boys

Figuring it out one day at a time.

We will miss you Uncle Mike


Mike is gone.  He left this morning for Arizona Sate University.

He will be greatly missed.  I am really glad that I had already left this morning so that I did not have to see Mike say goodbye to Linc.

I surely would have cried.

It has been a day or two since my last post and life has been crazy.

A few updates:

Field day was yesterday and is officially over, thank goodness.  It was a lot of work but turned out really well.

I had my first Mother’s Day.  Originally I thought this may be kind of a bitter sweet day for me.  Sweet because I have a sweet baby boy that I adore but bitter because when you have a child so young isn’t your spouse really the one who honors you on this day?  Well…Lincoln’s dad did try to make this day really special for me which was super nice.  And…my brother (Uncle Mike) also was really sweet and even got me a gift (Linc is actually wearing my mother’s day gift in the above photos:).  Plus, I was able to watch all my favorite reality shows for four hours straight Sunday night and the boys had to watch them with me!!!  Glorious.

I started my first graduate class on Monday and paid for it.  As if doing school work again for the first time in 10 years isn’t bad enough, watching nearly a thousand dollars drain out of my bank account for a mere 3 credit hours was devastating.

I close on my house next Monday.  I spent an hour transferring all of my utilities today…it is finally starting to feel real.

Kato is settling into his new surroundings.  He is awesome with Lincoln and is just a really great dog.  I think I got really lucky with this one.

That is about it.  I think it is time to do some homework.  Linc is down for the night and the house is as picked up as it is going to get.  I am going to sit down with some fresh baked cookies, turn on some prime time, and write a two page paper.

Ahhh…so relaxing 🙂

  1. Hellooooooo, Uncle Mike! Come and play with my kids any time. Haha. Just kidding. (Sorry, I couldn’t get past the picture.)

  2. Haha! Ditto Betsky1! And he’ll also have a lot of fun at ASU! I went there for my first 2 years, really great school!
