Good Ole' USA!

We are all still alive and kicking! I've been so busy catching up with family that I haven't been on the computer much other than checking my email. The trip over here was long and exhausting, but as good as it could have been considering the circumstances. I have a few pictures, but I just realized that I haven't loaded them on the computer yet. My regular camera broke, so I had to make due until I bought me a new one. A cheap one! We'll see how it holds up. I guess me dropping it might have had something to do with it.

We've had a fun week meeting new cousins, swimming, basking in the sun, going to baseball camp and visiting with missed family. I'll try to do better at keeping this updated. I'm headed to Florida in a few days!

Matt is doing well, for those who have asked. I'm still hearing from him rather frequently. We really miss him. The kiddo's are really missing him being here with us. Jordyn has cried for him this week and I overheard Landen saying he wishes dad was here. We miss you!

The Time Has Finally Arrived!

We have looked forward to this for a long time and the time has finally come for us to pack. We are headed to Razorback Land soon!!

We are all a little emotional with the end of school activities, saying goodbye to friends who are moving, and the fact that Matt has been gone for 5 weeks. The boys are not out of school until the end of next week, but I am taking them out a few days early. Hayden's class put on their end of year program, just for me today. I got a lot of it on video, but really don't have time to upload it right now. It was sweet though, and thank goodness I had Jordyn to distract me because I almost lost it a few times. They sang a lot of patriotic songs which got me. I can't believe he is finished with his kindergarten year. It went by so quickly.

My camera broke, so I am camera-less. I do have a little video camera that I can sneak a few with, but the quality isn't all that great.   The picture above is the only one I was able to get today.  

He came in the door crying today because he doesn't want to tell his friends goodbye. Landen cried himself to sleep last night. Jordyn is downstairs still crying and it's almost 9:00. She didn't even have a nap today, so I'm not sure why. This will all be forgotten once we get to AR and stay busy with lots of fun things to do.

I hope to see many of you this summer. My calendar is really filling up quickly. Yes, I like to be organized and know what my plan is going to be, though I do roll with the punches a little better than I used to. Matt will vouch for that!

I don't know how much I'll be blogging, but I will try to some for Matt's sake. Stay tuned!
