Time flies

>Wow. Two years it’s been since I last posted! Ha-ha. Life got in the way once again, you could say.

The important thing about 2009 was that the family and I went on a road trip that took us as far as to Vancouver, British Columbia. This was also Thor’s first long-distance vacation with us (Thor is our chocolate labrador, who is 14 this year). I *finally* finished making the album for this trip, which I hope to be able to post here soon.

Renee, my daughter who is also 14, competed in martial arts (kempo karate) in several places in California and in Las Vegas, Nevada. She really is one tough cookie, my little girl. And seeing as how she has been a teenager for two years in a row, she has the Attitude to prove it.

Alex, my son who is 16, is in third year high school. He’s been sending for information from colleges from all over, although we did tell him that we are not moving anytime soon to those States LOL. We have one more year and he should be off to college.

College! Time flies…Not too long ago, Alex was just coming home, after having been in the neonatal intensive care unit for three months, being born so early, and so sick. And now, I have an almost-adult boy, who certainly has plans for his future. I can’t stop worrying about him, though. Alex is always full of surprises, some of which, have not been the ones to please his Mom and Dad, at the very least. But I am ever so grateful for him, for all that he is. He is our first Miracle. And maybe sometimes, he is our teacher for patience and understanding, too.

Lance and I just celebrated our 18th anniversary. Has it been that long? We often say to one another, it seems longer than that. Ha-ha. Time flies indeed.
