I suck.  I admit it.  I've let the entire Summer go by without a single blog post....

It's not that I don't have anything to say....Cuz with 6 kids, and a hubby....Life is ALWAYS happening.  I'm just ULTRA-CRAPPY about engaging myself.

Well---The Summer is GONE.  I still have 4 kiddos in school and my goodness they are growing up!  I find myself aching with regret - thinking "where has the time gone?!"  And feeling like I am missing so much of their lives.

I miss being a full-time mommy.  I really do. 

The house keeps getting quieter and quieter, every year...and I just feel kinda sad about it.

NF-wise, things are "stable"  --which is ALWAYS a good thing.  But anyone dealing with this knows, it's like holding your breath for as long as you can hold it, until the next MRI...So, while I feel great about "stable"...It's like I can never quite feel comfortable - 'cuz the next MRI could say something different.

Living in  the moment is hard for me....I've never been good at it. 

Carter (Riley)
She's a SENIOR this year...How in the heck did this happen?

C spent the Summer in South Carolina with a friend of hers...and when she came back...I was impressed with how grown up she was.  She's always been feisty and spirited and this is what will make this young womans dreams come true.  She knows what she wants...and she knows how to go after it!  I'm so proud of her!

Rachel is a SOPHOMORE and still just as spunky as ever.  She got to go to camp this Summer and is loved by the counselors there!    She is growing up so fast...Her goal this year is to try to get me to let her drive my car!  LOL

Riker is in 8th grade this year!  His voice literally changed overnight!  He is definitely a teenager now!  He had a great Summer discovering Fortnite and going camping with his best friend!  He is still a mama's boy, which I will hang onto for as long as I can! :)

Brooklyn is our 6th grader!  Seems like yesterday - I was taking her Kindergarten pictures!  Brook is amazing...she still LOVES to draw, and has become quite an artist!  She has a art website that she created, to sell some of her creations! Check it out ->   Show her some love -

All in all- Its been a quiet Summer...The theater has been hoppin' and I've just been livin' life!

I hope all of you are doing well!

Thanks for always supporting me, even if I'm not blogging!
