Viper's 15th

Somehow, I have had a teenager in the house for 2 years already! How did that happen??? I'm only 15 myself, right???

But no, Viper went ahead and turned 15 back in the beginning of July. 
Here's some pics of his morning. 

(Getting good pictures of a teenager seems to be impossible these days...)

The black gift is from Charger and although you can't tell in the picture, it is wrapped completely in about 3 layers of packing tape. ;-)

 A new guitar pedal for my Van Halen playing kid.

Attitude much?

Sometimes the goofy sneaks out...

It's the year of Kingdom Hearts. I think Charger wanted the gift he got for his brother as much as Viper did. But, he was excited to surprise him.

The River

One of our favorite places - on the river...

I could live on this river--just wish it was a bit closer to home.

Major Catch Up Post

Lots and Lots and Lots has happened since I last blogged...be ready for a photo bomb...

Lots of Battleship games lost...

And battles recreated on the game board...(plus little hands I want to remember...)

Then, there was the Super Bowl. No matter that the Chargers weren't playing, he's still a fan...

Patriot's Day at school was next. Charger knew he had to be a LEATHERNECK!

And Elegance on Valentine's Day. The boys all thought it would be torture, but they all seemed to be having a good time after all.

Best Friends for Years

And then, Charger was back to football - flag football, that is. He just had to get his hands on a football again after his broken arm/surgery last summer. He's still not cleared for tackle, but will be having his plate and screws removed soon.  He'll be set to play tackle in the Fall. He's so excited. 

Plus, he's been able to be a leader, playing quarterback for his flag football team. What an unexpected bonus!

I guess I'm going to have to force my teenager in front of the camera this week. I need more pics of Viper to balance this post out.

Not sure what this means...

Midnight's Birthday

I have to post 2 photos for January 4th - my Main Man's 44th Birthday!!!


School vs. Homeschool

After enjoying his first day back in public school (after being homeschooled for the last 3 years), Charger said to me, 

"It was fun, but I just don't know why you should need to go everyday..."

I love that kid!
