In the blink of an eye

September came and went. I haven't posted in almost a month! Gasp!!

We are well adjusted to the routine of school being in and we just finished Cross Country. Both of the kids ran and last weekend we participated in a 5K. That was alot of fun!~

We took Brenden in for his spinal Xrays on Thursday. The curve has progressed another 2-3 degrees. So surgery is inevitable but not immediately. What a blessing! We have yet to decide when we will do it but at least we can put it on the back burner for now and until the holidays are over. We do need to have an MRI completed though because our orthopaedic doctor is concerned that he may have a tethered spinal cord due to some of the symptoms he is having.

We are also planning our vacation! Monty is getting ready to do the Ironman. All the hard work and training will soon pay off. From there, it's on to DisneyWorld.We will be gone for 12 days and it is taking more planning than I could have imagined. I guess that's part of being so Type A. We are all so ready for a vacation.

Tonight we are headed to Ian and Brittany's home for a surprise birthday party. Ian will be 19 on Monday. Hard for me to believe!! Really, you just wake up one day and your kids are grown!

I am amazed that she has been able to pull this off without him finding out. Should be a great time.

I will leave you with one of my latest creations. Just found this new Sassafrass paper, isn't it the cutest? And so appropriate for a tween girl!

Hope you have a great weekend!!
