I've been wanting to start writing in my blog for sometime now and unless we set out the intention to do something it will never happen! I just recently took a trip to Utah to visit my family while the kids were out of school. I wasn't sure if I wanted to fly or travel by car, until I finally came to the decision on which would be friendlier on my pockets! Needless to say- I will not do it again unless I have my husband go with me. Next time I will pay to fly! Grant it, the kids did amazing on our 12 hour drive to and from, it was just exhausting on my end. One thing is you can't beat the beauty of nature while driving, it's a wonderful experience on it's own. Once I arrived I felt relieved from the drive. It's totally a different atmosphere with the beauty of the mountains it's just breath taking. Something I feel I didn't really appreciate as child ua We had fun spending time with family and celebrating my young bucks 12th birthday!!
I give him about 3 more months and he'll be taller than me! He's a great kid we are so blessed to have him in our lives, we couldn't be more proud of the young man he is and all his accomplishments in his young life. Both kids are always do amazing in school with their awards and monthly honor roll stats (btw they have made the honor roll more than I did!!). D.J. got selected to attend Metropolitan Art Institute this fall and will be focusing on sharpening his talent. After a few weeks in Utah it was time to pack up and go come back home it was fun hanging out and being around family it's amazing how much we've grown but for the most part we are all still the same...we just have little people that depend on us and look up to us
