We have really been busy around our house in the last several months.
Our daughter, Leigha, 18, started college,
Anthony turned 16 and loves video games
Travis 13, ran cross country and joined REC basketball
Brady 8, found his love of books and all things literary,
Wyatt 4, started pre-K and is working on all the skills to get ready for Kindergarten
Baby Carter 23 months, started playing "living room" basketball and wants to try to use the potty.
We've made a lot of changes recently as you can see, but we try to remain a close family. It's hard when the older ones are wanting some independance and the younger ones just want to be with the older ones.
If I've learned anything from my life POST DMD diagnosis, is this.......
Every second, every minute, every teenage eye roll, every dirty diaper, every single thing that happens in my life is a gift and I will cherish even those things that test me the most.
There are days when I feel like Mother of the Year, but there are far more days, When I feel like there is no way I can make it though. Raising Teens is like raising 5 year olds, they are just bigger then me now.
"Keep the faith" is what I have to say in this crazy thing called life.
Here's some pictures of all my "babies"
