Summer is here!

Whoops, apparently it has been a while since I last wrote anything. This is going to be short and sweet but I've felt very productive today so I figured I'd cross something off of my To-Do list.  Life is good here in Sunny Yuma, AZ. The weather has quickly hit the triple digits and our pool is nearing 90 degrees. Perfect!

Justice has completed his first year of elementary school. He was sad to say goodbye to kindergarten but he is looking forward to the first grade. He is still an excellent and avid reader, that is when he is not playing video games...  He torments his brothers on a regular basis, but likes playing with them the rest of the time.

Brosnan is still Brosnan. He wants everything done for him. I'm surprised he finds the energy to feed himself sometimes.  He is not as interested in academic subjects, he'd rather play with his legos. All in all, he's a pretty good kid.

Arcadian, is 1 week shy of his 3rd birthday. Time has flew by. He has become very opinionated and demanding in his young age. It is amazing how all 3 kids can have completely different personalities. He has recently discovered how to work the video games and enjoys the fact that he can now play games just like his big brothers.

Our kids are starting to get to the age where they are not quite so physically demanding and exhausting. I like that. I am looking forward to being able to enjoy them more and more as they grow and become more independent.

Justice and I are just trying to keep our sanity and enjoy all the fun things life brings our way. We are enjoying that the sport seasons are over for the summer. Between Justice and Brosnan we were at practices and/or games 6 days a week. It has been nice to have our evenings back.  I finally found a place to complete my internship so I can complete my Masters degree. I start July 11th and if all goes as planned I will be graduating in March of 2012. I am so glad that there is finally an end in sight.

Well that is all for now, my small window of quietness before the bedtime madness has passed.  Perhaps I will get another high productivity day and post some pictures :)
