We got our first snow of the season on Saturday. It filled us with so much joy!
Life has been so different for me lately. I have so much to say but can't manage to get it out.
I've missed you bloggy friends. And I've still been silently stalking you all, just haven't commented like I usually do.
The pregnancy has been going wonderfully! I have my next appt on Friday. I'm hoping they take a peek to see the sex but my hopes are not up.
Can you all believe I will be 5 months in 4 days?!
I have been so disconnected from my camera lately and had almost forgotten how much I love to take pictures. My goal will be to post a picture everyday from now until the New Year. Wish me luck!
Today was Parent/Teacher Conf day. You all know how nervous I was, especially after getting her report card. The good thing was that I've chaperoned the last 2 field trips and have gotten a lot of 1-on-1 time with her teacher. Because of that, she had already expressed some of her concerns with me. I have been focusing alot of my time working with my baby and keeping her from having to repeat the 1st grade.
So today was kind of a big day. Well, all my hard work has paid off. She said that she didn't know what I was doing but she has noticed a drastic change in Lael. She is participating, her handwriting has improved, her reading is at 60% and she is only required to be at 30% right now. She does still need work with her math but that is normal. I was so relieved! She's such a smart kid and now it's showing.
My point is, not everything is perfect right now but if this may be as close to it as I will get for now. And because of that, I am joyful.
My name is Keyona (Key-ah-nuh). I've been Active Duty in the Air Force for 13 years. I am a mom to a 9 year old girl and a stepmom to an 11 year old girl and a jungle gym to a 2 year old boy.
I am married to my best friend.
I am easy to get along with.
I am silly.
I am forgetful.
I am proud to be a mom.
I am happy to share a piece of my life.
She's 7 going on 16. She is in the 2nd grade. She loves hotdogs, fairies and all things nice. Currently she loves to watch all things Disney and Nickelodeon but every now and then I'll catch her watching Dora. I just pretend not to notice. Her favorite saying is "My Bad". It drives me nuts. She has a strong will but loves to please her mama. She has a smile that can melt you and cheeks you want to nibble on. She is the best part of me and the light in my life.
The last member of our family was born May 14th. We are still getting acquainted with one another.....
