Catching up

I'm not doing as good with keeping this updated as I was, I get on to read peoples blogs but don't ever write them anymore. So I guess its catch up time. This month hasn't been super interesting, just been doing the same old work and be momma. Works going a tad better, although just when I think that something happens to knock it all down again. I've been trying to find a better way to deal with the people I work with better. Hopefully I find something soon. But my actual Housing Counseling job is actually going fantastic. I love it and I love working with the people I do. I've had a couple set backs but can only go up from here right?

The kids seem to be doing okay. I get a little worried about Nate and Tyler, they seem to really be having issues lately. I don't know if its due to the new surroundings at their dads house (I know I wouldn't be comfy there) or just life getting to them or what, but I hope they will be okay. Ryder is just Ryder. Hes an ornery little pill but hes doing good. They are all
getting so big. I love them to death.
Today I have to give a special appreciation to their daycare, Bright Starz. That place is AMAZING. They have helped the boys out so much in feeling comfortable and loved. The teachers are all amazing and really make the boys feel special. I give a special thanks to Mrs. Beverly today. Every month she takes on a family to do something nice for. She really watches the kids and determines something they could really use. Well, today she pulled me aside and said "Nate was showing me the hole thats starting in his shoes, so I'm wondering....would it be okay if I took them all to get a new outfit and new shoes today?" I was in awe. She wanted my permission because she didn't want me to think that she was implying that I was poor, she just wanted to let me know she has decided to take them on as her family this month. I thought that was soo sweet. And yes...I am poor hah! I was going to make Nate wait until the new school year to get shoes since he'd probably just trash the new ones anyway and I really don't have money to buy a new pair every month. So her thinking of this was a huge asset to me, and I really don't think Nate will ever forget it. I hope that my kids can learn that kind of compassion for others and learn how to be charitable. I'm trying to teach it, but having such great examples definitely helps too.
*I haven't shown off pictures for awhile so I added some today. the first is the boys playing in our front yard. They have really adjusted well to our new house thank goodness :). The second is Ryder in Nates boots looking for his caterpillar friend whos been living on those flowers. It was rather cute :)
