On a personal note, I had my first experience at a cancer center to get checked. Going through the fear of the unknown was not a fun experience. It was dealing with the lymph node under my arm that I have posted about before. All things have turned out good with that, praise the Lord! The only sad thing was that my doctor tested all my hormones because I thought something had to be wrong seeing that I was about 25 pounds over my normal weight and have NEVER dealt with that before. He reported that all were totally normal and gave me the speech, "Every decade you add on to your life changes your metabolism..." Not what I wanted to hear, but totally grateful for a good report!
The kids are enjoying being in school. I love seeing their personalities unfold and the many friends that they have. We are fixing to kick it into high gear again, however, as basketball and football are starting back up. Derrick will be coaching Eli and Jesse's basketball teams and Isaiah and Carmen are still in gymnastics. It's also the month where we begin our 5 consecutive months of birthday's with the kids....ouch! It's crazy how big they are all getting. Eli is almost as tall as me and Ciera, my youngest, will be 3 next month. I can't believe my budget is almost done with diapers!!!!! It's been 11 years! Crazy! This is always the time I develop baby fever though, so if any of my friends love me enough, please have another baby so I can snuggle with yours and not have to have another myself! :)
Well, hopefully I've caught up a little on my blogging, and as always...I'll try to input more often!
