A little catch of what's happening in my world, Part 1

I have missed so much with all my friends in the last few months and so much has happened here. Not sure where to start.
KB has really improved on her reading! We still have a ways to go, but we seem to be on the right path. We have been using Evan Moor. ( With Dyslexia it is hard sometimes to find what works and what do not. Luckily, we seem to be on the right path. She is even sitting around writing songs. After she writes them, I go over all the spelling and grammar errors and let her rewrite it. Over the past week or two, she is having fewer errors.
KB has also decided to play softball instead of tennis. She wants to see which one fits her best. She has also joined the choir at the church we have been visiting since we left ours. Her joining the choir has been a very big power booster for her. The girls clubs she is in has also been great for her. I am letting her go to summer camp with the girls club and to a Jamboree with the choir this month.
As far as the church goes, I think we did the right thing. I never thought of myself of going to a BIG church, but it sure has been what is working for us. I did write a 15-page letter to my pastor and his wife and let all that garbage go. It still hurts like a divorce, but it is getting better over time. I still feel a little out of place at our new church, but it is working great for the kids and I have learned a lot in the last few months there. I have forgiven and let go the hurt from the other church, but I also still miss it. I do not see us going back, but maybe in due time we may visit.
In the next few days, I will be writing a little insight of each of the kids and how they are doing. Plus a little catch up on me.
Hugs to all!
You never know how much someone means to you till you are unable to be around them.

Law Of The Garbage Truck

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car
jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi
driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other
car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his
head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just
smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I
asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined
your car and sent us to the hospital!' This is when my
taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They
run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and
full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and
sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their
garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the
streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let
garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to
wake up in the morning with regrets, so...Love the people
who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't.

See my new BABY!

I just love it. I hate that I had to be off line for a bit to get it, but sometimes it just happens that way. Not much has changed here. Still taking care of momma, so my computer time is still very limited. Plus with 3 kids it's hard to get on the computer. Mom is doing okay, but not as good as I would like. She has been having problems with her mental status. Her Dr done a bunch of routine test and found nothing, so she will send us to a specialist to find the underlined problem. I think she is getting dementia from prolong oxygen loss, but not sure how to deal with it. So, hopefully the specialist will help me in that area.
Enough of me. I can't wait till I have time to come and visit all of you. I have missed out on soooo much!
If I have time later on tonight I will come and visit.
Double hugs to all~
