The title of this post was taken from the song Failure by Breaking Benjamin.
It's been almost three months since my last post. I needed a break from writing and it was good for me to just focus on my family without feeling like I needed to share everything. I do hate that there are so many funny, sad, and amazing things that have happened that I haven't recorded anywhere and I'll probably never remember.
Sebastian is a sophomore in high school, Tyler is in 8th grade and at the high school, Mason is in 4th grade and back at Mountain View with me, Jaxon turns two tomorrow and Blake is almost 9 months old. They are all growing up so fast. So far they are all loving school and all the amazing things they get to do. Sebastian is taking all honors classes and playing travel league soccer. Tyler made A/B honor roll this six weeks and is top of her class in math. She is also in the marching band, on the JV Cheerleading team and she is taking karate. Mason made A/B honor roll this six weeks and scored the most AR points for reading in his class. He is playing soccer and takes karate. They are so busy but we manage to hold things together. I love watching them in all they do.
I'll end this post with a funny story. My uncle Dale had knee replacement surgery almost a month ago and he's been staying with my aunt while he recovers. On Sunday we went and cleaned his house so it would be ready for him when he came home today. Tyler was sorting things and every so often she would ask me if she could throw something away. We had this conversation.
"Mom, come here. I don't know what to do with this."
"What is it?"
"It's a book with a lot of numbers."
"But what is it?"
"I can't explain it. I don't know. Come and look at it."
I go in the living room and she is flipping through the yellow pages of a phone book. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I couldn't stop laughing. Poor child has never used a phone book!
