No Secret

It's been no great secret that since getting out of the Army last year,
I have been really struggling.

It's been a real challenge to transfer to this new life.
Challenges with the kids, challenges with the new home,
challenges with no Army family around.

Challenges abound.

But, so do blessings.

 We finally get to spend quality time with the grandparents.

There are a lot more opportunities for family time and fun.

And of course, there's Doctor Who family time.

Where we dress up for Halloween.

And eat strange things like fish fingers and custard.

So, all in all, I would have to say the blessing far outweigh the challenges.
At least until next year when I have two teenagers and one preteen in the house.
Oy vey!

8 Things

Today is the 8th of May.
(What?? May, already?)

So, in honor, 8 things I love right now.

The golden hour.
Perfect for taking pictures.

Photography assignments where you find colorful floppy disks that take you back to middle school.

Beautiful light and textures.

Little League baseball.
This team has been so good for my boy.

Springtime blooms.
There are colorful flowers all over my yard right now.

These two who do keep my life interesting.

They get it from their father.

April 2014

Look, two posts in the same week.
I am on a roll.

April was a good month.
I love springtime. We get out of the house a lot more.

And there's baseball.
Lots of baseball.
 Rangers game against the Astros with my sweetie.

Josh's little league games are taking up a lot of time, too.
He is really getting better.

My sweet baby at his awards ceremony.

Jerry and Jamie enjoying the outdoors.
Pretty soon, he is going to be too big to carry around like this.

I love being near my parents finally.
They are enjoying the kids, too.

And, of course, there are roses everywhere.
Beautiful, sweet smelling roses.

I do so love Spring.
