it's been that long?

It's been mentioned that i've fogotten about those of you in blog land and that i should really update my blog.  Not a whole lot has happened since blogging last.  I'm not even sure i've pulled out the camera since Rianne's baptism.  Sad but true.  I've been studying my tail off and have made it through the first term (6 months) of school.  So far, so good.  I'm learning things now that i just couldn't even begin to wrap my brain around in High School.  I consider that a HUGE success on my part.  The math is starting to come around and almost, dare i say, fun.  My current term is full of HUGE classes like Quantitive Analysis (which i just passed! and wasn't nearlly as scary as i thought it would be), Economics (macro and micro), and Marketing.  Next term, i break into the finance and accounting part of it.  If all goes as planned, i'll have my BS degree by August of next year (fingers crossed). 

In other news, hmmm.... not sure there is really any other news worthy news.  I'm back on the weightloss bandwagon again.  I'm determined to loose those "freshman 15" (although, i'm glad i'm not to that extra 15 yet) since starting school.  DarRell is working again after a long, no new work hiatus. 

Daylon, Rianne, and Sam are doing the school thing and it's working out well. 

Daylon just bought his own DSi after spending over a year to save up for it.  I'm quite proud of the little man.  Although it does give me a lot of leverage to help him keep his grades up. 

He's decided he really likes the "arts" part of school.  Not actually the art class but more like drama and band. 

Life is a bit "hard" for him being the older brother.  Especially when he's the oldest by several years compaired to all the kids around here.  And to top it off, he's in that stage in life where he's left out of a lot of stuff cause he's too old but then he's not old enough to do the other stuff.  I hate this age.  It's so hard to see them try to (forced into?) transition.

Rianne is flying through school with flying colors. She's actually starting to get a little bored with it and starting to slip up.  School seems to come quite easily for her and is in the top of her class.

She's an absolute girly-tomboy, if there is such a thing.  She likes it rough and tumble but is the first to cry foul when she gets roughed up a bit.  She thinks it's tough being the only girl in a house of boys (i don't count, ask her.  Although i do get her point).  I feel bad that she doesn't have a little girl her age to play with at her beck and call.  I think she needs a little bit more of "girl influence" in her life.

Sam is doing great.  Since starting school, his personality and vocabulary has opened up in incredible leaps and bounds.

He enjoys all the attention he gets being the baby.  He's got quite the personality and is always smiling.  We are starting to get over that 3's attitude i think - WHEW! 

He's really into trains and helecopters and legos.  Definately legos!  He can sit for hours, literally, playing with them.  He still struggles with sleeping all night long and eating but i can see improvements in both so hopefully we are on the way to being a "normal" household with EVERYONE sleeping at night and sitting at the dinner table together as a family instead of customizing everything to suit Sam's stubborn needs.

Wow, that picture of Rayanne... I can really see Ray in her eyes. Good to hear your family is doing well. Conner is 4 and we still make him his own dinner at night. Stubborn little man simply won't eat and will go to bed hungry if it isn't something he likes. Congrats on your schooling. I couldn't imagine going back to school now.
