The more things change. . .

the more they stay the same!

I didn't move around a lot as a child, I didn't change school often, I don't deal well with change now! I don't find moving fun, I don't like being around people I don't know, and I don't like different!

Last night, on the way to Jackson's New Family Dinner at the Latest and Greatest School, Jackson and Tyler were talking in the back seat about where they were going to go to school next year. Tyler is very excited about going to the pink door at Jackson's current school, Jackson was explaining to her that he would miss her throughout the day since AGAIN, they will be at different schools, and suddenly I hear, "It's OK that we are going to different schools Tyler because you are still my sister, and I am still your big brother!" She just smiled and nodded! Really when it comes down to it, it doesn't matter where you go to school, live, or talk to, and the end of the day, you come home to your family! I am happy to know that my kids get that! I am proud to say that my kids are happy and well-adjusted, no matter how often we move or change schools! I could learn a lot from them!

Along the same topic of things changing, but staying the same, Jackson already has the reputation of being the most "beautiful little boy" they have ever seen. Shannon heard it, and she just looked at me and said, "Some things NEVER change!" Seriously, he has REALLY long hair right now, and in my opinion, kind of looks like a rag-a-muffin!

OK, regarding your last post...did you know you can reserve your Redbox movies online and then pick them up whenever you want?! So cool - it has been the best discovery ever!!! Just go to and follow the directions. It's the best because if the kids are hoping to see a certain movie then they aren't disappointed when it isn't in!
