"Meditating - "do I remember all my moves?"
He has been in Karate since 9/28 /07. He has worked very hard and given 100% effort. It means alot to him to succeed. It has taught him so much about self confidence and self esteem.
He practices everyday and lifts weights. We couldn't be happier with his achievements and how he has grown since he joined. His attitude about everything is so much better.
Today was the first day of 8th grade for Tyler. He wasn't as nervous as usual. He looked quite spiffy as he got on the bus ( he requested that I not photograph him this year on the front step as I usually do :) and I didn't cry this year. It's so difficult to let them grow up but that he is. I miss him - his witty little comments and our short conversations. I knew this house would be so quiet without him. Life is an adjustment everyday isn't it?
He's not my baby anymore but a young man...........which leads to the photo below. Daddy had to instruct him last night in the fine art of shaving. My little boy with a razor in his hand!!! He had a *cute* mustache that he absolutely hated. The kids tease him about it as he is quite masculine for almost 14 so off it went.
A very proud, much happier and less hairy Tyler :)
On a different note, the new motherboard and power supply have just arrived for the PC that crashed last week. The laptop had an issue as well so we were rather computerless for a day or two. The boys are happy that the PC will be up and running by tomorrow.
These beauties are thriving in the garden and I have several bouquets throughout the house and at my Mom's house as well.
The gardens are overflowing with produce and we have been busy canning and freezing. Tomorrow a farming post, I promise.
