8 months down!!!!

oh my gosh!!!! we have 8 months down on this deployment....9 months since i last held him or kissed him!!! im so excited to have this much time behind us...yep, still a ways to go, but im looking at the positive....Im totally giddy with excitement, and the boys are looking at me like i lost my mind..lol...well, i have, but its ok, they love me anyway!!!

So nothing too exciting has been happening around here...I think the kids are ready to go back to school...i have started them on a bit of a routine....2 times a day we take time out to read, or do flashcards...I have logans sightword list from last year, and i have made some cards out of them...and we work on that....im so excited....Logan read almost a whole book...finally, for the first time....most dont know, but he is extremely behind on his reading...his concentration just totally sucks....the first day of school i am going to make sure they know all about it...and see if they can get him some extra help....i do what i can here, but with 3 other boys in the house, it dosnt always work...

I have set up a list of chores they have to do every day...steven has been my little helper lately...he is so cute about it...he wants to wash the dishes all the time....lol, i end up having to rewash them, but he does an ok job....i like that i have a list posted and they just know every day what has to be done...it helps alot...and i dont have to remind them so much...

i am loving this weather this week....its nice not to have the air conditioner running full blast 24/7...and the humidity has finally gone down a bit....guess that means its time for yard work..

Dominic informed me a couple of days ago that girls dont have peepee's....haha, i dont think he is old enough to explain all that too...so, i will just giggle at that revalation for now till i think he will be able to understand a little better....

Steven and Logan still have poison ivy, but it seems to be under control...the doctor said it will take about 3 weeks for it to go away completly...I had to take Logan into the doctor yesterday again..he woke with a sore throat and i didnt want to take any chances....no strep thank goodness...i swear that kid is sick all the time....the doctor suggested a multi-vitamin for him...so we will try that....

without the cable tv i have spent alot more time reading...its so nice to get some reading done finally...right now im working on a Nora Roberts one....but i have another one waiting for me that i cant wait to read....its called Emotional Vampires....Erin, that might be one that you like...i cant wait to start it....im trying to branch out away from just reading steamy love stories..lol....any suggestions would be great!!!

well, time to get back to the boys...have a great weekend

Congratulations on the home stretch! When we were about two months away I started counting garbage nights.
