29 August 2011

Well, it seems that I have neglected this blog again, and for quite a while at that. Oops... I guess I will start updating you with my trip back home to Indiana. Then, I will tell you about the random other occurrences that came about the past month or so.

In July, Booger and I flew home to visit my family. It was pretty laid back. It was Skyler's first airplane ride, so that was exciting for him. He is always fascinated with aircraft of any sort. We spent time at the lake, which was also another first for him. He loved playing in the sand, and being able to walk and jump in the water on his own. We also went swimming at Nancy's. We love her. :) We also got to meet my newest niece, Delaney. Cute! Spent time with family, and hung out at the bar a couple times. It was overall pretty fun, but wish I had more time with Mom, but she had work and is on 2nd shift.

After I got back to Texas, the heat continued to worsen. Yuck. We have spent a lot of time doing a whole lot of nothing inside the air conditioned house. Skyler has started talking a bunch more. He's also learning a few signs, as I am learning myself. I hope for us both to know the whole language soon as possible. Although, at this age he is learning the word faster than the sign, I still feel it is important to learn it. It could be very useful.

Brandon finished up his softball season. They did excellent this year. They actually made it to the tournaments. The past three years has been nothing but lost games and dissapointments, so this year was a fun and energetic change.

Brandon started Airman Leadership School, and has a couple more weeks and then he will graduate from that, and we will get to dress up all fancy and be elegant and professional for a night. Haha! This also means that he passed the promotion test for Staff Seargent. That means another stripe and a significant, much needed pay raise! He's got a few months or so still before he can sew on, as we are awaiting his line number, which is 7000-something. They promoted just over 1400 this month, so if it continues at that pace or similar, he should be an official E5 by January or February. I'm very pleased with him! So very proud of his hard work, and all that studying!

Not much else has happened. Just living life. Just us three. Until next time, peace out!
