I'm BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me and my boys at Christmas!!

Well it's may and I have finally gathered up the gumption to write. I am actually in the midst to thinking about a book!
So I have spent the last 4 months in college and moving forward to getting a degree of some sort! My heart is with caring for others so I am going into nursing. I do also have the ambition to get into the environmental field. Decisions decisions!

I'm not sure about all of you but for me the winter seemed to go by very quickly.

Having fun sliding!!

Josh's Basketball team they won gold in the playoffs!!

However; I do have five boys who are very active and love sports so between hockey, basketball, badminton, youth groups and school, we are very very busy all the time! We are looking very forward to summer break! And there will be NO sports in the summer...organized ones anyway.
Peter Puck! This is Hockey Day in Canada

One of the biggest changes for us since January has been our move to Whitehorse! We have been blessed with a 5 bedroom home with a wonderfully huge back yard. The first week we moved here I realized that we were all gathered together in the living room 90% of the time! Having lived in a 1 bedroom hotel room for 7 months, then a motor home for 3 months and a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 months, everyone just did not know what to do with all this SPACE!!! It took a week but we are very well adjusted to the living space now.

Picking up all the pieces of our lives that were left scattered, has been difficult but we are doing it. I am not sure where I would be today if I did not have my boys. They are my everything, the reason I keep going everyday and the reason I get out of bed. I love them so much and I have been so blessed to have such great kids!
TEENS!!! (how time flies)

And, can you believe since January I have not only one but TWO teenagers. I have had many comments like; "And now for the trouble", "What ever will you do, these will be the hardest years," I do not look at it negatively! I am embracing this time with them and I believe with enough love and guidance we will get through these years and make them full of the best memories! It's a time of gaining trust, meeting needs and and boundaries and compromising. So far we are doing great and I have a very close connection with my boys.
Sweet Smiles!

We all continue to miss our "Princess" Sarai very much. We can often be found looking at pictures, talking about her and our memories and visiting her grave site. We are now in the preparations of getting things in order for her Headstone setting! Some very wonderful friends are building her a castle to be placed over her, and yes it will be a castle fit for a "Princess." So for the next few months I will be found at my sewing machine creating.

Well that is all I have to write for now and you can be sure to be seeing a lot more posting from now on!
Love and Blessings to you all
