dyk - All right it's still August in most people's neck of the woods! :-)

dyk - My summer vacation was busy....I think I'll be glad to have the routine of fall to keep us in place! :-) We went to Japan, the East Coast of Taiwan....we had so much fun!!

dyk - Nik's birthday party was fun....on Saturday we will be celebrating with their friends a combined birthday party so that should be fun....a barbeque!! Yummy!!

dyk - I've decided not to start school for Nik this year....just because it's such a long day and with a new baby it just doesn't seem like good timing. However I think I'm gonna start homeschooling both of them (I need to get my butt in gear) and work on letter recognition, letter sounds, and stuff like that! I also need to make our chore charts again!

dyk - Doing okay....kind of homesick but doing all right! Found out that we are having a baby I guess Col was right!! Super excited about that because I get to have a girl to balance the testerone in the family! Plus dress her up girly like at least until she decides what to wear! :-)

DYK - Hi are you guys!! Sorry about not commenting...hopefully I'll be back to a normal posting schedule with fall under way!!

dyk - Life has been busy....but good! :-) We missed our typhoon but our fruits and veggies will be going up in price because other places got hit pretty hard so we are gonna have alot to do.

dyk - Found out we are having a I have been looking online for headbands and hair things to put on this girl! Hopefully this girl will be a class dressed girl! :-) We will see what happens.

dyk - I think the weather at night is finally cooling down! Woo hoo...we might be able play outside at night!! That would be a good thing!

dyk - Finally getting my blog updated!! Almost done with everything Japan. Then I have to work on Nik's birthday and then our co-workers retreat! :-)

dyk - Saturday we are having a barbeque to celebrate Nik and Mikah's birthday and Sunday we will celebrate Mikah's 2nd birthday. Wow can't believe I have a two year old and a four year old!! Crazy!! Hoping this girl will be born in 2011 because then I'll keep them all in the same odd year -- '07, '09, '11!! So strange!!

dyk - Miss hearing from all you lovely ladies!

Love that you are having a girl!!!! Yay!
Kiara started preschool Monday. She did good - no tears but has been tired and grumpy at home! And when I take her to the kids care at the Y she cries and it is only for an hour while I work out!
Foot is still not better :( See the specialist Sept 6 hoping he can do something different. I feel like I will never run again! THen there is a kid that goes to PT that has a spinal injury (diving in a shallow lake) and he can't ever walk again (paralyzed from chest down) and I feel horribly guilty for feeling bad for myself when he has it so much worse! It's just that I really enjoyed running, YK.
Kids had a blast in TN on vacation. It was too long for me though!
DH asked me if I thought Andrew could possibly have Asbergers. I told him I thought it was more OCD/anxiety. He flips out about the most trivial things and everything has to be a certain way. He is just so angry and negative and can't seem to be happy/be a kid :( I think he is doing okay in first grade so far.
I'm sorry you are homesick, Care. I know I would be too :(

DYK I was so excited to hear you were having a girl...I knew it! :)

DYK it is so fun to have a girl to round out the family...especially when she's the baby? :)

DYK good luck with the homeschooling...I bet it will be fun for the boys?

DYK with N only being four there is definitely no hurry so you can take your time with it and M gets the benefit of keeping up with his big brother? :)

DYK I need to get on the chore chart thing too...the kids are good at helping out but I need to get something formalized?

DYK I am glad you had a nice vacation but I bet it's nice to be home?

DYK how exciting that K started preschool....I bet she will get used to it and the hours and be less tired after awhile?

DYK I am sorry about the issue with Andrew...I am happy he is doing well in school though?

DYK lets hope this specialist you see next week will find a solution for your foot?

DYK it doesn't seem fair that it's not better yet?

DYK work is crazy...what else is new?

DYK I'm looking forward to a three-day weekend?

DYK fun weekend ahead....I have my fantasy football draft?

DYk the kids have a birthday party to go to?

DYK my BFF is flying in from CO for the football draft and it will be fun to have him here?

DYK hopefully we will get some good pool time too?

DYK soccer starts next week so between that and karate things are going to get crazy busy?

DYK Blake and Jax are on the same team and they are moving up to the big field?

DYK Jax is playing 'up' a division because it's easier for us to have the boys on one team and he is going to be two years younger than some of the kids?

DYK makes me a bit nervous but he was doing so well at the end of last year I'm hoping it will be fine?

DYK as long as he's having fun is all that matters I guess?

dyk - It won't really be homeschooling....just making sure they both have time with reading, coloring, and learning their letters! :-)

dyk - I'm excited about the baby girl....and everyone else is too.....mostly because they want the little girl to have DH wrapped around her little finger! :-)

dyk - I need to get a chore chart....they are so good at helping but it helps so much when they have actual stickers! :-)

dyk - Hope you are doing well!!

dyk - I think it's okay to combine the kids for sports. I know my mom wishes that she could have done that with my brother and I. Jax will do great!!

dyk - Good luck with your fantasy football draft and having your BFF coming down!!

dyk - I'm thankful that I'm not the only one who has a BFF who's a boy! :-)

dyk - Hopefully you slow down a little bit or get used to the routine!!
