June 02, 2009

I know it has been forever.

 Auntie Kelly has been super busy so I think 
I finally figured out how to post on the blog. 
Things have been as good as to be expected. 
My Mother's Day was bitter sweet. I can't
 ruin it for the boys though. Boston's class 
had a Mother's Day tea. It was very sweet
 he made me a beautiful hat and sang very
 sweet songs. Yes, it did bring tears to all 
our eyes and I know a lot of the mom's kept 
watching me. At the end of the tea, one little boy
 in his class pointed to me and said mommy her 
baby died. His mom apologized. I know she felt
 terrible. But the big thing was Boston just looking
 up at me with his big blue eyes. I told him it was OK.
 How do you keep your kids from hurting the way we 
do? I just got in my car and cried!!!! Then Brogan made
 me a pot with herbs in it. Chelsea, Jessica, & Eric called
 me to wish me a Happy Day. Duane's mom gave me a
 beautiful locket with a picture of Andie in it. I love it!!!
 I really had a nice day. I was just missing one person, 
"Our Angel". Duane and I decided we were not going to
 celebrate holidays this year. (Except for the kids). 

I can't remember if I told you all about me finding
 the little feathers in our house. I'm completely
 convinced it is Andie leaving us her "Angel Wings "
to let us know she is here and she is OK.

Duane has been sooo busy lately with work.
 Even though he works at home, I feel 
sometimes I see very little of him. Sometimes, 
I want to pull him away from the computer 
just for a day so he can enjoy himself and I can 
enjoy him too. He is currently traveling to Hawaii
 and then Guam. Then he will be home for a week 
and then go to Utah.I think he is enjoying it though.
 He has a lot of good and big things going on. 
Thanks babe for working so hard to provide for 
our family. We love you.

The boys are out of school and our very happy about it. 
Eric has left for Texas for a month. He is growing up. 
Brogan will go to Tennessee for about a month and 
Seattle for a week in July. Boston doesn't want to go
 anywhere unless I go. 

I currently have experienced another huge loss in my life.
 My dear friend Lynne passed away on Saturday 
May 30,2009. She was like a mother to me. I have known 
Lynne since I was in 8th grade. We have always been super
 close. We would talk for hours everyday. I think Duane is
 really starting to see how much I talked to Lynne in a day, 
because now I try and do it to him. I told her a few weeks 
ago when she got really sick that there was an Angel Baby 
waiting for her. Lynne was in the delivery room with me 
when Andie was born. She was and is one if the best people 
in my life. I hope her and Andie our together and taking 
care of each other now. I miss and love you both very much. 

Baby Ethan had his second surgery today. His mom said he 
is doing well, but fragile. Please pray for him.


I will now continue to post weekly. I hope this finds you all well.

I'm so happy to see a post from you. I'm sorry you are going through such a rough patch yet again, but please know that our prayers are with you.

On a side note, I was born in Guam, but never had the opportunity to go back. I hear it's beautiful out there and I hope Duane enjoys it =)
