I have to do this occasionally. I can't help it.

My 12-year-old son amazes me.

He's so smart and funny and easy-going.
He started a new school this fall,
and every morning before school was sick & nervous.

But he has stuck with it.
I'm so proud of him.



My 7-year-old son also amazes me.

He's so different from his big brother.
But, he's also smart and funny...and not always easy-going.

Both boys have experienced a lot of change in the last few months.

And I'm so proud of how they've been handling it.




Remy's loving baseball.
Even after he swore he hated it.

Kids!




Donny's playing the trombone better these days.
He doesn't sound like a dying water buffalo anymore.





Often times they fight each other...wrestling or Nerf gun wars.
But they love each other.

And that warms my heart.



They are my heart.

All the big decisions I make in my life take them into consideration first and foremost.

And it's totally worth it.

I am glad that they boys are adjusting and doing well. I think that as long as you are happy and strong with your choices...they will be just fine.

I thought about you yesterday - we had breakfast at the Grand Floridian :-)
