I Certainly Miss Blogging!!

Good Afternoon!

It has been ages since I have updated all of you.  SO much has happened this past year it is crazy.  My head is still spinning.  We have officially completed our homeschooling.  Our son graduated at the top of the class in Abeka Academy.  We could not be more proud of him.  We are not certain what is next for him.  He has decided not to pursue the military at this time.  I am ok with that.  He is working full time for a local company and likes it ok.  He is actually exploring different colleges.  YES that surprised us as well.  HAHA!  He really loves agriculture so is leaning towards a degree in Agriculture Engineering.  I didn't even know that was a degree.

My daughter Katrina has started her 3rd year at a local university.  The program she is in is for those with Developmental Disabilities.  She likes it "ok".  She goes but honestly is not really into learning.  This program is great because it will give her job skills.  I just pray she will put forth the effort so she can gain employment at the end.  We shall see.  On another note she is engaged to Kyle.  This was the night he treated us to supper.  Little did I know that he was going to purpose to her!  YIKES how did we get to this season of life??  No date set has been set.

Hannah has been accepted into the same program as Katrina.  She is a freshman and is loving everything about going to college.  She is embracing everything and loves to tell us everything she learned at school.  Warms my heart.  She has made many new friends, and sees friends she has not seen in a long while.

My husband has been diagnosed with a neurological disease that affects the arms and legs.  He now has braces he must wear at work and other times.  Mainly work.  He is taking it all in stride and has not let it get him down.  He just keeps plugging along.  We are learning to not take things for granted because it will change in an instant.  He is currently working towards becoming a personal trainer so he can help others in a similar situation.

Lastly, many changes have been happening to me.  I have been working on myself and my health a lot this year.  I am VERY happy to say that I have lost 70 pounds.  I have gone from a size 24 to a 16!!  I feel amazing!  Better than I have in years.  I am at a lower weight than when I had my kids.  I have always been overweight.  At my physical last year I was told I was headed towards diabetes.  Something that scared the heck out of me.  It was that statement that really made me start working hard on getting my health under control.  I still have a ways to go, but am so happy!  Now that the kids are all doing their own thing, I am starting a new job Monday as a medical records specialist.  I am really looking forward to it.

So that is our last year in a nutshell.  We are living life and enjoying every moment! It has been a lot of struggles but none that God has not brought us through.
