I am so bad at this...

I have so much going on at any given moment the last thing on my mind...usually is getting to update my blog. Where do I start....First, Jaden is almost done with basketball season. I can hardly wait!!! I love to watch him play, but it get so hectic. It will be nice to have a Saturday morning off.

Work, for Jon and I has been so crazy. There were layoffs at his work...fortunately, he made it through with his job. I have been busier than ever. I have people calling to "book me" months in advance. I have been doing some training manual writing. They see how well it works and want me to help. 40 hours a week is more than what I want to work, but I might have to start putting in some OT to get to everything. I really hate the thought of that.

Logan, my sweet, sweet baby now has to wear a helmet every day, 23 hours a day, for 3 months. I hate it more than he does. He is so mellow most of the time. It is only a minor annoyance for him. He will be going to Primary Childrens' next week to get a Botox injection is his neck to loosen the muscle. He has torticollis which has caused him to have to wear the helmet. I hate that he has to go through all of this, but he is my little trooper.

Colby got in yet another fight at school. We have been taking him to counseling to work out his anger issues....I am not sure that it is working. It is so hard to have a blended family. His mom is awesome and does a good job, but like most teenagers he finds ways of getting into trouble. He pierced his ears (YUCK) and now wants to gauge them. I keep telling him that it won't be cool in 10 years when he can't get a job because he looks like a freak!!!

Poor little Logan, he is a trooper if he puts up with the helmet. I hate to see Babies uncomfortable for any reason but it sounds like it will help him in the long run. It sounds like you've been very busy and have a ton of stresses going on. Good Luck! Colby may need some good extracuricular activities to get his energy out and keep him out of trouble. Something that will be a positive in his life that he can succeed at. Have you thought about wrestling, or maybe some kind of Utimate Fighting sport(I mean the ones that are for learning, not just out to get somebody)? My cousins do it and got into it during High School. One of them even just left for his mission, we didn't see that coming. But he related some things from Ultimate fighting to making good decisions in his life. Things like disipline and stuff. Just a thought. Hope things get better. Sorry for the novel. I like your new pictures, Logan is sure growing fast!

Hi there,
I noticed you on our HS Blog and I thought I would say Hi! Looks like life is treating you well despite all the stress of raising kids. Lots of Luck with the fighting, the little Stink! Little Logan is adorable. Did you know Debby Wyatts little boy had the same thing? What a good little kid! That would have drove my babies Crazy!
