Where has this year gone?  I cannot believe Christmas is almost here.  I look at my baby AJ who is going to turn 3 at the end of the year and it makes me so sad to know that I'm not going to have any more babies.  Being pregnant, nursing, and taking care of babies is such a huge part of me and now they're growing up (waaaaayyyy too fast for me!).  Some days I wish I could have just one more, but we have our hands so full now and it wouldn't be fair to them to add more to our already overflowing plate.  My cup runneth over with love for them and gratitude to God for these wonderful little boys (and 1 big one) that He's entrusted to my care.  Life is good (hectic, but good nonetheless).  ~sigh~ I'm being nostalgic tonight thinking back on when they were smaller.  Anyway, they had a wonderful halloween.  AJ was a ninja and Dominic and Joseph were transformers.  They had the best time.  We gave a lot of candy to the candy fairy who left them $20 to buy something to share.  It keeps all that candy out of the house (and no, we did not keep it for ourselves, lol!).  Speaking of transformers, sugar transforms my boys' into little horned beings who bounce off the walls.  So, the creation of the candy fairy was just as much for our benefit as it was for theirs! 

Off to tuck 3 very tired little boys into bed now and then go and pick up 1 big boy from a high school soccer game.

Hard to believe that we're almost halfway done with summer.  I thought it was going to be more stressful than it's been, but the boys' have been pretty darn good.  It's been so nice to get up and stay in my pj's and enjoy my cup (okay---4 cups) of coffee.  5 of my friends came over on Friday with their kids and it was so much fun!  There were 15 kids here (including my 4) and they had such a blast.  To me, summer is all about family and friends and just hanging out.  Our hot climate is much more bearable with a pool.  I don't know how we ever survived without it!  Anyway, I just finished my medical terminology course.  I ended up with a 104 average!!  I was so happy :)  I start my next course on Tuesday.  

Last Sunday, AJ screamed all through nursery while we were in church.  I was upset that they didn't page me to come and get him.  His little face was so red from crying -- it broke my heart to see him so distressed.  So, today when we pulled up to church, he freaked out and said "don't leave me"!  So, I took him to church with me.  I figured he wouldn't last too long, but he sat through the entire service.  When I prayed, I peeked and he had his hands clasped and his eyes squinted really tight.  It was adorable!  Everytime it got quiet, he said "are we finished?" really loud.  As much as these boys can drive me crazy sometimes, I just look at them and realize just how blessed I am to be their mom.  They are so amazing.

It's beginning to feel like summer already and it's only the beginning of May!  I took the 2 little ones to the park today and I was so hot.  Thank goodness for the breeze or it would have been unbearable.  As much as I'm looking forward to not having to rush around this summer, I'm not looking forward to having all 4 of them home 24-7.  A break is nice when you live in testosteronville!  At least I'm taking night classes 2 nights a week all summer.  That will give me a little reprieve :)  Don't get me wrong, they're awesome little people and I love them dearly, but we all need a break from time to time.  

On another note, I've become friends with a great girl in my neighborhood.  She lives 3 doors down and has a boy and a girl my 2 youngest kids ages.  They are really fun down to earth people, so I look forward to getting to know them better.

I'm a little leary (sp?) about putting it all out there since there are so many wackos in the world, but hopefully I won't have any problems.  But, we are just a normal, average family who faces the same struggles and joys as other families.  Some days are just crazy with 4 boys in the house, and 2 dogs, and a turtle, frog, and fish.....but that's our life and I wouldn't have it any other way.  We don't know if we'll ever have more.  I mean, we are so blessed to have these healthy, beautiful kids.  I'd love one more down the road, but who knows what the future will hold.  Okay, this is way philisophical.  

Tonight my oldest son has a choir concert at school, so we'll be busy with that.  Only a week and a half left of school and then 3 months of summer.  Now that we have a pool, I fully intend to take advantage of it to keep us cool (and occupied) during the brutal summer heat. 

Gotta run and iron some clothes for the concert!

Current Mood: tired tired
