My awesome hubby

Clark helping B. on his Orientation to Kindergarten

So my awesome Husband has been working on his degree for a few years. Business Management from South University Online. He is able to do some of his work when he can find wifi on the road and at Sean's house, my parents, his parents, an awesome company that lets him use the office after hours in Canada.

It has been rough. He doesn't have the time he wants for the boys, for the dog, to get any of his honey-dos done. He wants to spend quality time with the family and he has to do his Homework. It gets him down but we are getting through it.

He has also been getting this all done while working and sustaining a full time job while on the road. Being a Truck Driver is a huge pain in the butt. He is gone out of the house at least 5 days a week. We have very good phone conversations! The boys are also getting better at expressing themselves to daddy on the phone. Clark even helps T. study his spelling words (he does a much better job than I do, giving T. the word I have found is not very beneficial to learning) He also lets me call him when I am ready to throw the children out the window he lets me scream at him instead of the boys. It is a huge lifesaver.

Being on the road Clark feels he has missed out on so much. We do our part to include him in everything that we do. Talk online, talk on the phone and share tons of pictures over the phone and on the computer. He is looking forward to being home and being able to participate in all this stuff.

It will be interesting to have another adult home. We will be able to get a lot more projects done. We won't just have to plan them out. The house will have more wear and tear. We are going to go through a ton more food. I might actually cook a dinner. It is a real downer to only cook for T. and I and have b. decide he won't even eat before he sits at the table. Arrgh.

Honey I am very proud of you. And I want everyone to know it. It may seem like a pain in the bum but we are almost done and you can feel accomplished because you AAAARRRREEEE.

one very excited kindergartener

I went to wake up someone for the first day of school this is what I found. He was very excited. Dressed in 2 seconds, teeth brushed, ready for breakfast.

Jake and his life

So T. doesn't have such a cute face. B. does because he didn't have to go to school for another two weeks. The super cute one is the dog in the door trying to figure out what we are doing up so early. Jake and I have been enjoying each others company in the mornings. He has even gotten to the point were he stays in the kennel until I get back from dropping the boys off then we go for a fun walk around a block or two. He gets so excited and loves it. He actually pouts if I have to go run some errands first. Luckily he is growing up. He only eats things every once in while and doesn't have to constantly be running around the house. He finds a centralized location and sits or falls asleep. he knows where we all are and can see the front door at all times.

halloween halloween halloween

I am having soo much fun making my halloween costume this year. Yes pictures will be coming soon. I was able to find two of the pieces today for $8.00 much better than buying the costume online and so much more fun. I have two of the pieces already in my wardrobe. One needs to be altered the other just needs a new button. It also looks like I may need to buy a pair of boots oh happy day. I am headed to the DI tomorrow to see what I can find.

I even found a website that has patterns and everything costume related so cool.

What are you going to do for halloween?

The most fun part of this whole experience is finding out the whole culture that I knew existed but knew nothing about. My eyes are opening.
