Update on how we are

    I just really don't know why it takes me so long to sit down and write on this blog. Things are going good around our house and fall is coming along good. I have been noticing Bradly starting to sound out some pretty big words here and there and so I decided to get one of our level one books and see if he could read it. He did GREAT! I was so surprised and so proud of him! I will have to let him read like that every day now! I love it!
    Lexi is doing great, just acting like a teenager more and more everyday! She is a really good kid though. Loves being around her friends. (don't know who she takes that after) She does great in school, I am so proud of her and her accomplishments.
     Allison is being challenged a lot in 3rd grade, but is doing well! She is such a good kid also. She just had a birthday and is now 9 years old! My how time flies.
    I am substitute teaching as much as I can this year and that is going well. I just wish I had more days to work. It may be hard to be a stay at home mom but I wouldn't change it for anything. It is so nice to be able to go volunteer at the school or just to go to the kids functions when they have them and not have to worry with getting off of work to go. On the other hand, if I had an education beyond high school and had a good paying job, one that wouldn't take ALL I made just to pay for daycare, I would love to be able to have more money to do things like vacations and stuff. I guess we can't have it all. Sometimes having less is better. (I have to keep telling myself that)
    Jeff is still working at FedEx Office as Asst. Store Mgr. and likes it. I told him the other day that he is the best husband I have ever had! HAHA  He really is so good to me and the kids. I love him and wouldn't know what to do without him! I hope he realizes how much he means to me. I just wish we could spend every day together. I miss him when he is at work! Am I making you sick yet?  ;-) Okay, I don't have anything else that I feel I need to put on here so this is all for now.

You are too funny. I actually told Stan the same thing not long ago. Being together is good! And just food for thought... if you were both working and had more would have more bills, at least it usually works that way. The more you make the more you spend. Maybe when you get old and gray like will be able to travel... lol.
Love ya
