Favorite 4 my Friday

Well my favorite for this Friday is of course my boys....if you have read my blog for any length of time then you know Im a VERY proud mom of three VERY awesome boys...and though I know some people get tired of moms writing about their kids...I look at it as this is my blog and I can write about anything I want to...and today its once again about my boys!!!!

Well he did it!!! He went from this:

To this:
He sent me a text last night and told me that he shaved finally and so I told him to send me a picture and this is what he sent me...I laughed my a$$ off because its only a half picture and it looks like a bad mug shot....he's a turd!!!! Now dont get me wrong I have nothing against facial hair but when it starts looking like you have an animal living on your chin its time to do something about I was very happy to see that my Dakota once again is showin off that cute face..without the animal attached!!!

As for Devin he is settling back into the school routine....he's a big 5th grader...the "top dog" of the elementary!! We went last night and got him signed up for 5 & 6th grade tackle the 5th grade oh good lord Im not ready for this....oh I love football and watched the older two play all thru jr high and high school...and Devin has been playing flag football the last couple of years..but this is my baby and hes only in the 5th grade and ....ITS TACKLE!!! ok mom sure it will be fine....but man last night when he tried on his pads....I felt a little sad, scared, thinking omg time is just flying by!!! Anyway somehow I will survive this too and will be watching my baby from the side lines..praying he doesnt get hurt!!

And now for my Kody he is leaving tomorrow for Germany...We dont have any idea if we will be able to talk to each other at all while he is gone...and I know some can say its only for 3 1/2 weeks...but this is 3 1/2 weeks of my son being in another country!!! Yes I know its part of the "job" so to speak when you sign up for anything military....but I wasnt the one that was all excited about this in the first place. Yes Ive grown to accept it and yes Im thankful he isnt being called over to fight in a war ..but Im still nervous about him being so far away, and Im still sad not knowing if we will be able to talk while he is gone...I have a really good relationship with my boys and though the older two are away to college they stay in touch with mom ALOT...and I love that!!!! So my heart is a bit achy today knowing that this time tomorrow my koder is going to be far far away..and it will be 3 1/2 long weeks before I get to see him again!

Three Boys

I love them equally,
but not the same -
for each is different
in their own special way.

Everyday I thank God for
the blessings I've received
in having children
as wonderful as these.

LOL How ironic that Dakota shaved last night since we were talking about it yesterday. Well, now you don't have to resort to that reverse psychology thing we discussed.

I totally understand your emotions over Kody and Germany. I endured that when Kevin was in Japan for the month last summer.

As for Devin, I still can't get over how fast he is growing. I will have to plan my visit during football season so I can hopefully watch him play.

I for one will never get tired of hearing the stories about your boys. With everything we have shared over the years I can honestly say that I feel I know them each. You do a great job kiddo.

You have every reason to be proud. It looks as if you've done a good job.

I don't get tired of hearing about them. With everything that you and the boys have been through they have turned out awesome and you should be very proud of yourself and them. I sooo wish we lived closer so we could hang out.

OYE! Not another "i love my boys post" geez.

jkjkjkjkjkjk....You have three beautiful boys, and deserve to be proud.

Don't worry about Kody too much, Germany is a pretty tame place to be going considering all the other alternatives.

Tell him the unshaven look is much better! LOL
I also have a fifth grader, but he is not interested in any sports this year! It is the electric guitar that has stolen his heart!
Prayers for your soldier!
You have great sons~

I enjoy hearing about your boys. You love them so much & you can see it every time you write about them. Keep on talking about them, you should. And I'll be here to read about them!!!

Love hearing about your boys, you are proud, just like I am of my family :)

Have you heard of Skype?

It is an internet program where you can call and if you have a webcam you can see each other as you talk! Kev and I use skype when he is away.

Might check into it if he is allowed computer time! Hope the time flies by for you!
