Storming the castle

Well, not so much.

It's official. Luc is a free man again. We weren't sure if we would have issues pulling him out or not. It was painless. We have already seen a big difference in his demeanor. Now I just have to get used to having him following me around all day (again).

I spent most of the morning running around trying to gather all the ingredients for a GOB costume. That pretty much amounts to = I love Jon. All I can say is "illusions Michael."

The kids have finally (mostly) decided what they want to be for Halloween. I'm going to have a Batman, Spiderman & Superman. Laren is still trying to nail down what she is going to be. Yay!

What to write?

I guess I'm just not inspired. I think of things to talk about, but don't seem to have enough energy to do justice by it. I could be talking about our family getting to be a part of Operation Serve, our nephews wedding or getting to see our friends and their 2 kids for the first time in over 3 years.

Our focus at this point is on our middle son. He is sad. He has been sad for months. He has the most amazing, mischievous smile and I haven't seen it in what seems like forever. That is not right for a 5 year old little boy.

We are trying to decide what would be best for him. Little boys should be bundles of energy, playing and having fun. Not crying about school, feeling like a failure, and saying that reading isn't fun. Luc is smart little boy with a huge heart. He deserves better than that.

Parenting is not for the faint of heart.

White Bread

What is what this blog is going to be?

This isn't my first foray into the the wide wonderful world of blogging. I have other blogs elsewhere that I share the odd things that float around in mind. This one will be mostly devoted to "the fam".

"The fam" consists of myself, my husband Jon, and our 4 kiddos - Lachlan (9), Laren (7), Lucas (5), & Liam (2). At the moment we are living in the great state of Tennessee. We've been around here for about 3 years. I think that might be a record for us. So that of course means it's time to start looking for a new state to call home.
