Another year down

I'm 34!!!!

That's really not a milemarker, but it's a year later!!

And it got me to thinking...what happened this last year? The hubby and I finally took our honeymoon, I met up with some old, great friends, no family member came down with any health issues...I think it was a great year!!

Oh, Tyler (my step son) called me mom the other day! This is a huge milestone for he and I. And he did it as if it was the most normal thing ever! For any step mom, it is hard to step in as the one married to your dad. It takes longer for that relationship to build, and as a child in that position, you almost feel as if you may be hurting the other parent.

My dad re-married when I was almost 13 and my step mother was very nice, and even sat us kids down to tell us that she does not want to take any places, or take any parents' love away...she just wanted to be a friend. But my mother was soo bitter about the situation that we felt like we might be betraying her to even like my step-mom.

Many years later, I call my step mom....Mom. And luckily, Tyler's mom and I are friends and there is no animosity. So the kids feel better about making their own choices.

And Tyler chose to call me Mom! That's better than a birthday!!! :)

I'm giving 'er all she's got captian!

The weather has turned crappy and cloudy again. :( We had some beautiful weather for the end of school and then for the kiddos first official day of summer, it turns cold. Blah...

Oh well, this last weekend we had some great weather and took advantage by taking Spring pictures. They came out amazing! They have grown up soo much since I first stared doing them. I need to fix a few, but will post them later today or tomorrow! :)

We also went to see Star Trek...finally!!! And I loved it!!! I followed the series although I would not call myself a Trekie, but I could answer basic questions. And I still loved it!! I kept whispering to Taylor lines from the show right before they were said...she was a little annoyed, but I was just happy that I could follow it so close! There were a few people that got up in the middle of the movie and left...right before Leonard Nemoy came on screen...oh well for them!
