When they grow up...

Yesterday kids and I traveled to Texas. Along the way we were just talking about this and that and we got on the subject of what they were going to be when they grow up.

Brittney: Mom, I want to be a teacher for special education or a therapist for education so I can help kids with issues like bubba.

Braden: I want to be a demolition expert so I can blow things up. (He stops then says:) that is the first step in my plan (pauses with his evil grin when I ask what is the next step) taking over the world and turning sister and her friend into his minyons.

Hmmm.....I want my kids to succeed but the whole world and minyon thing makes me pause..LOL. That is so my boy.

I have good intentions...

I mean to keep up with my blog I really do it just slips by.

The last five weeks have been me recovering from knee surgery. My ACL ruptured and I had to have a graph done and a meniscus tear fixed. I ended up with an infection and they had to drain it two different times and my 1-2 week recovery is now into week 5. Once they got the infection cleared up it has been much easier but I am still not one to sit around so I overdue it and then have a day I can't do anything...very frustrating.

My dad had total knee replacement surgery a week ago....a glimpse into my future that I did not want...ouch. He is doing good. I know eventually I will have to have that but hopefully years and years down the road. Bad bones and bad knees...I told dad thanks a lot. Poor Brittney seems to be having the same issues she has grown so tall so fast that it is causing issues with her knees.

We finished our home school coop. I only missed one coop even during all the knee drama so that was good. I was in a wheelchair for 3 weeks because I couldn't do any weight bearing.

Other than all the knee drama things are going good. I looked at a calendar the other day and realized that our vacation is 60 days away. I have Washington D.C part planned, New York started, and after is still up in the air on what we are going to do.
