Something to post

Just thought I should post something. I was looking through some pictures of my cute kids. I will have Jeff bring home his work camera and get the pictures off it so I will have something new soon.

Tyler and cousins, Emilie who is 7 and McKenzie who is 4. Notice how white my kid is?

Grandpa and Dylan

Doesn't that smile just crack ya up?

It's been a while so it's long! Sorry!

So I know it has been a while, but a three year old who will remain nameless, got a hold of the camera and it is beyond repair. I think he setting in motion my good excuse for not having very many pictures of any child after the first. I have managed to take a few pictures with Jeff's work camera when he left it at home one day, but of course I didn't download them quick enough and the camera hasn't been brought back yet. So for now, a quick word update will have to do.
The best thing that has happened at our house over the last couple of weeks has been that my little man Dylan is pulling himself up and standing! He is even finally mobile and doing the speedy army crawl and the back and forth on all fours. I am so proud and just have to remember that he will do everything in his own time (just like his dad) and not compare him, especially to Tyler. He is still the cutest little thing, with a massive amount of hair that sticks straight up. Everywhere we go people say "Oh wow! Look how cute he is and look at that hair!" They all then proceed to pet him, and I am almost surprised that it all hasn't fallen out because so many people (strangers) touch it. Another great thing is that him and Tyler are really starting to interact. Tyler is getting a little better at sharing and even being gentle. They laugh back and forth at each other and it is a lot of fun to watch.
Another great thing is that Tyler is back to school. Tuesdays and Thursdays are finally a little more peaceful between 9 and 2. He couldn't have started back any sooner. There were some days that I was starting to think it was either going to be me or him. Don't get me wrong those days are still happening, but a little less often now. Can anyone tell me when he might start listening to me? It is funny because when he is with other people and I pick him up they tell me how wonderful he is and listens and how he is so good and even took a nap for them. Then we get home and it is the crazy whatever I want goes Tyler. He definitely won't nap for me anymore unless he is so worn out he can't stand, and the only trade off for this is that he will go to bed before 8 and then we get a quiet night. Oh well, I have learned to pick my battles and he really can be a sweet boy. I know he loves his mommy, of course more than daddy, so I guess I won't complain to much.
Well... what else do I got for you... Oh, volleyball at church has started and I am doing that. I haven't done any church sports since being a youth. Now, since I am in young womens and no one else knew anything about sports, I have been asked to be the coach. It is pretty interesting to be on the grown up coaching end. Telling them that everyone needs a chance to play and that it doesn't matter if you win or lose we are all there just to have fun and build friendships. I guess I feel bad now for all those rolled eyes I use to give my YW leaders when they use to say all that stuff or maybe I just feel old. I am also playing on the adult co-ed team and remembering how much I miss playing so it has been fun.
Okay, I have rambled on enough, Jeff is gone for the night, somewhere in south Texas dove hunting with buddies, but I do need to go to bed sometime. Hopefully I will get a new camera soon or Jeff will bring his home so we will have something to show you. Oh yeah, I did say dove hunting. Lets just say we live in Texas and I don't know... Yep.
So I have really enjoyed blogging and seeing everyone. I can't believe how everyone is growing up :) I will try to be better with ours. Love to you all!!!

We went to SeaWorld in San Antonio. We road rides, played in the water, and of course saw Shamu. It was very hot, but we had a great time and by the time we went to dinner everyone was exausted.
