So, I haven't written in a little while so I thought I would post a little update.
My brother Tyler is home from overseas! He got home safely at the end of May and life seems to have picked right back up where we left off. Hopefully, he won't have to go back overseas for a long time, but we never know.
Only July 7, 2012, Josh and I celebrated our five year wedding anniversary. I can't believe we've been together for so long, and (really) I can't believe we made it five years. In the long run, five years doesn't exactly seem like a long time, but to a married couple, five years seems like forever! We've had our ups and downs...mostly downs...but we are closer than we've ever been and working through things better than before. We know we have a long road ahead of us, but we're doing it!
I took Gabriel to his first gymnastics class this week and he absolutely loved it! I've been wanting to get Gabriel into gymnastics for a while now because he is always flipping and swinging on things and balancing...he's a natural...but I had to get Josh used to the idea. He thought gymnastics was girly, but I finally convinced him to let Gabriel try it. We are also going to get Gabriel in teeball or baseball as soon as we can because that's another thing he absolutely loves (and he's really good too).
Also, Gabriel might be starting preschool this year. We hoped to get him into the Christian Academy I was working for, but we can't afford it, so we are having him screened at the end of this month to determine whether he will be going to preschool this year or if we have to wait until kindergarden next year. If he does start this year, I'm going to be getting a job (which I'm very much looking forward to), but I'm not actively looking right now until I know for sure whether he will be starting or not.
I've been working on the fourth part of my Four Kingdoms series, but it's been slow going. I've also been working on another novel of mine and I have almost 40,000 words so far. I'm very proud of what I have so far with that and I can't wait to finish it and my Four Kingdoms series and really focus on editing it and getting it ready to have someone read them all. A friend of mine and I have been discussing the pros and cons of self publishing and every other alternative, so we'll see where that takes me.
Well, I suppose that's everything that's really been going on in my life for the most part. Until next time...
