New Year

So its the end of a decade. I had to stop and think about it and how much has changed. We started out this decade with me still in school and childless. We have ended this decade with me still in school but teaching and with two sweet little boys ( well sweet most of the time). I have gained a sister in law along the way and become much closer to my mom as well. We are proud homeowners something I did not think we would be. We have started spending our summers in Michigan and reconnecting with family and friends. My boys are getting to know the joy of having an extended family something I am so happy I had growing up.
This year alone so much has changed. A lot of it for the better. My mom and dad are returning to Texas!!! YAY! I can't wait. I have taken up running and really enjoy it. I have about 10-15 lbs to go on my weight lose goal but for right now I am OK with where I am at. Alex entered 1st grade and is doing so good. Jake is starting to mellow out with age but its obvious that he is a lot like me and we will be butting heads through the years. I would like to say that I am mellowing out but I still have a long way to go :) We have made many new friends as Alex's social life has expanded. Isn't it funny how that happens? We are looking forward to the new year and all of the new adventures that are sure to come!
