Life comes up on you FAST!!!

I haven't blogged since February and boy have we been busy.
Dylan broke his femur in half and had to have surgery. March 17th 2009. He had to stay off his leg for 8 weeks. When he finally was able to start slowly walking, he complained his ankle hurt. So we trudged back to the Doctors and sure enough he broke his ankle also!!! He is such a trooper and hasn't complained at all. We do have to have surgery to remove the rod, we will find out on Monday when that will be. He broke his femur on a playground toy called the saddle spinner. Please stay away from them!!!
We went to Dallas Texas for Katrina's Acting. She had alot of fun and meet many new friends. We are currently working on getting an agent. We have a talent scout working with us. It is very exciting.
In July, we traveled to Akron Ohio for the World Championship Race in Soapbox Derby. Dylan placed Third in the World in the Superstock Division. He received a $500 college Scholarship.
How exciting that was!!!
I promise when I have more time (in my dreams) that I will post some pictures.
Katrina has decided that homeschooling is not for her. She is too much a social butterfly and missed being with other people. So she is currently enrolled at a local public high school and is loving it!!!
Dylan is continueing to be homeschooled. It is pleasant without the bickering with Katrina.
We seem to get so much more done!!! Even housework runs more smoothly!!!
I will try to be better at blogging, while I haven't comment on the many blogs I follow, I am trying to at least catch up on everyone's lives!!
Have a great day!!!

Yes, I am still here

I am so sorry my blogging friends, but I had a horrible cold. It left me cranky, tired, whiny and tired. I barely made it through the school day, let alone cooking, blogging etc.
Florida was cold, now it's hot again.
School is still going on, with alot of crying, whining, screaming (by me of course) and just plain wanting to give up.
Trina has decided to go to public school in August. Now if I can just get her to finish up what she has started!!!!
Dylan is having a hard time with all the writing, spelling and math. I really am fed up with it all.
Other than that we are ok. Life is passing by quite quickly and I never find the time to do everything that needs to be done.
I haven't even had the energy to read my friends blogs. I will try to catch up with you all.
I hope everyone is staying warm and doing okay!!

Derby day in Central Florida

Well today was derby day and I just didn't feel like taking any pictures.....Bad mama.
I was just to tired!!!
Dylan didn't get any first places so it was a wasted day in my opinion!!! Trina helped her friend by knocking out the competition so Allison could get the 2 1st places she needs!! Way to go Katrina!!!!
School has been tough for all of us. It is so hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. It was tough for us....our first Christmas without my mom. But we are muddling our way through it. Trina will never be happy with what ever we's just her personality.
Dylan will never like writing and spelling. I have tried so many fun ways. It's too bad we have to learn stuff we don't excel at or like.
We are alive, doing okay. I haven't even had a chance to check on all my friends blog. One of these nights, I will stay up late and try to do that.
I hope everyone is doing ok!!

Happy New Year

I am hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! From the blog's I visit, it seems everyone did.
Poor FatcatPaulanna has had the flu at her home.
I hope they recover quickly. I don't miss that at all. We have been lucky and since we quit private school have never had to deal with it.
This year was so tough on me losing my best friend, my mom. Christmas was tough. She alsways helped me wrap gifts and we would laugh and get excited. I know that it is my selfish part that is missing her and I need to let go and move on. It is so hard, I talked to her at least 3 times a day and she was my helper with keeping Trina on track. I know she is so happy in heaven and not in any pain, but (Me being selfish again) I MISS HER!!!!!
We spoiled the kdis too much this year. I say every year that i will not do this again. But every year I do. I will try and post pictures later.
The kids spent their own money and bought me "Jamie Oliver's Game for the DS". I am terrible at the game, but really am a great cook. He makes the most awesome risotto ever!!!
I gotta go, kids are yelling for me.
Happy new year.
