4 years later....

Where have the last four years gone...the boys are now almost 18, 14, 5 and 9.  Heck Gabe turns 5 tomorrow!  The last time I posted he was just a little guy and now is all grown up. 

Bradley is a senior in high school.  Crazy how time flies. They are babies one day and then suddenly they are choosing colleges and making plans that somehow don't include you.  I am not handling this transition well, but know in the end it will be the best thing for him.  He has chosen a college in CT and will be moving far from home. It hasn't completely hit me yet, but it will.  Looking forward to that. :)  Lacrosse season is about to begin. He is happiest during those months so it will be nice to have a happy teenager around the house!

Greggory is in the 8th grade.  He spends most of his time on the computer and playing games virtually with friends.  He is a great student, friend and an amazing big brother.  It is great watching him grow up and be so different than Brad.  Not that Brad isn't GREAT, but they are so different so it has been fun.  He starts high school in the fall and seems to be excited about that.

JT is in the 3rd grade.  He enjoys playing sports and playing with his friends more than anything.  School doesn't come easy to him so he has to work at it a bit.  He prefers to take it easy and coast...he is however an amazing athlete and so much fun to watch be it on the football fields, soccer fields or the baseball fields. He is such a great big brother to Gabe.  They share a room and I love how close they are!

Gabe is in Pre-K.  Starting kindergarten next year has me a bit freaked out, but it will be nice to have 2 kids in the same school for the next 3 years. He has overcome all of his hearing issues and is super smart.  He knows all his letters and numbers and is working on printing his name and other words.  He is great on the IPAD and loves ALL his big brothers.

Matt and I are just busy with work and keeping up with the four of them and happy.  Trying to figure things out like should we buy the house we currently live in or move, where should we live, etc.  We just enjoy our time away from it all and spending time together. The last four years have had their ups and downs, but we are right where we need to be!

I promise to not wait another 4 years to blog again.  Writing is for me.  Sometimes you just need things for you.
