Conversations with Nolan

Hi Everyone-


How are y'all doing today? I am enjoying my fill of HGTV while Hubbie is underway for the next few weeks. He doesn't seem to want to watch hours on end of House Hunter... Go figure :)

I want to share a conversation with you that I had with my oldest this evening while we were driving to hockey. We were talking about what grades Nolan would be in when Kyler was in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc.  That morphed into what grade does elementary, middle and high school go to. Nolan asked me what happened when you were done with high school...

Me: When you are done with high school you graduate.  Then you can get a job or go to college.
Nolan: How many grades are there in college?
Me: It depends on what you are going to school for- a doctor can go to school for seven or more years.
Nolan: How long do you have to be in college for the Navy?
Me: Four years.
Nolan: Where do you sleep when you go to college?
Me: It depends. Some colleges you can sleep at home and other colleges they have rooms you can share with others and you sleep at college.
Nolan: Is it comfortable to sleep at college?
Me: Well I guess so.  They have beds for you to sleep in.
Nolan: What happens if you pee your bed in college?
Me: Well then you have to clean it up.
Nolan: I think I will want to stay at home.

...LOL!!

Then Kyler chimed in with a "Me too!"

I love these boys!

Back...?

Hi Everyone!

It has been several months since my last post.  All I can say is that life happens and ask that you understand.  Is that too much to ask of you? I hope not. Over the last few months I have been busy holding down the fort while my husband was out to sea. Honestly, trying to keep up with this blog and my projects got to be too much. So I let it slide. I am sorry.

However, my neighbor and good friend has inspired me to try again.  Hubbie and I have worked on many projects since he has returned from deployment and we have some more tricks up our sleeves.  I hope you will come back and check out what we have going on in our little North Carolina home :)
