I know......

It's been FOREVER  since I've posted a blog!!!  AAAAHHHH!!  Life has been a little crazy around here.  Josh graduates in 2 days, though, so surely life will slow down a little....right?


Well....I'm going to let these pics speak for themselves. We went camping with some great friends down in Lawton and hiked at Mt. Scott. SO fun!

What a season!!  Dustin was PUMPED to play football...I found out I'm not a football mom, but am becoming better at it....HA!  He loved every minute of every practice, scrimmage, game...he had a blast!  Well....let me rephrase...he loved everything but the broken arm at his first scrimmage.  Could've done without that!  Thankfully it was minor...only 2 1/2 weeks in the cast, and a few weeks of strengthening, and he was ready to play!  He is a great football player!  

No words needed for these pics...they all speak for themselves.  I just have to say I'm so glad their last game was so awesome...they needed a good win like that!

The previous 2 posts were all Jo and here's Dylan!

His baseball team got a trophy for the spring season!! Way to go, Arsenal!  Don't pay attention to his shirt in the pic....we didn't get the trophy til late in the summer....and he just happened to be wearing an old baseball shirt!

 At the zoo....he loves the birds!

 Waiting on Jodee at gymnastics...wearing his Iron Man costume.  I'm so glad he still does this.  I don't want him to grow up yet.

 We went to the cub scouts info meeting and he made a juice box boat:

All kinds of fun!
We decided not to do cub scouts...weekly meetings didn't work with our crazy schedule...and we do most of the fun activities as a family anyways.  In fact...we are preparing to do our own box car derby.  Ha..that should be interesting!

Go JO!

Jodee qualified to go to the All-State banquet for gymnastics this year!  This is for the girls that score a 37.00 all around or more, or place 1, 2, or 3 at State meet.  She did it! Even after a broken foot!! WOOHOO!  We are so proud!  

 Way to go, Jodee!

Once again

I'm lagging behind on my blog!! Between baseball, football, gymnastics, and work...I don't know why I can't keep up!! HA!

This post is all Dustin.  He broke his elbow at a football scrimmage back on the first day of school.  Poor guy....thankfully his cast was only on for 2 1/2 weeks, and all is well now!

 This is how he slept the first few nights (before the cast). Not very comfortable!
Getting his bright green cast:

He's pretty happy now!

 The next week at school they had a drawing of anyone that did a summer reading project.  He did ONE because I made him.  He won the ipod nano.  Of course!

Here he is in his cool football jersey (Go Bucks!) after his cast came off.  It took a good 3 weeks for him to be able to mostly straighten it out. 

Tough guy.  Had to miss a few games, but he's back, and is a really good football player!  I'm not such a good 'football mom'.  Yikes!  But he's loving it....guess I gotta love it with him!

Floatin' down the river

The kids and I were able to meet Josh and the youth group from Kansas for their annual float trip in August.  It was so much fun!  

Here is the group:

Hangin' on

NKOTBSB, baby!

This lucky girl got to go to TWO NKOTBSB concerts this summer!  It was awesome!  New Kids on the Block plus Backstreet Boys....throw in some Jordin Sparks, Midnight Red, and Matt Morrison....WOW!   
The original tickets were my christmas present last year....and then Josh wasn't able to get away from his work in Kansas to go to the concert...I tried to find a friend to go...but it just didn't work out.  So....Jodee got   to go with me!  She absolutely loved it!  She saw Jordin Sparks..and we are now fans!  The second concert was a surprise from Josh...they had added a stop on their tour in Tulsa, so he made the 5 hour drive down from Kansas to take me to Tulsa. Pretty sweet husband, right?  It was a blast!!!   

These pictures are not in order....and they are refusing to go in order, so we'll just go with it.
