I know, I know

I gave up blogging...but am suddenly inspired to do it again thanks to Paula and Bethany's blogs, and seeing the cute designs, fonts, and background they have now.  So here is your one blog for the next 6 months...and it's gonna be fast!!!

July...Back to Superintendent, great guy, great family, great boss so far!

August...Roder familly vacation at Village West; annual administrator conference in Des Moines; school starts, craziness begins again for year 3!  Eric's starts 4th grade and Alic in more daycare!  Jack's in 1st grade and Preston will stay home one more year., volleyball and cross country in full swing; Eric playing flag football, and Alic playing soccer for the first time!
Ohhhh...and we got MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOO we are very STINKIN' happy!!!  We decided late August to take the plunge and became Mr & Mrs on September 24.  Small, fun, full of friends affair at the golf course & country club in Rock Valley.  AWESOME/BEAUTIFUL day...couldn't ask for more.

October...fall sports winding up; PT conferences come and gone; time is flying by. boys made it one game before state...what a fun/great season; off to Branson, MO for Roder vacation for Thanksgiving.  Fun Fun with all the boys!  Kelly turned a whopping 29 :). we are.  Christmas.  LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year.  I am anxiously awaiting snow..Kelly got a new sled and they are now both sitting patiently in the garage ready to roll.  We will get out   for break on the 22nd and leave the 27th for our 'honeymoon' snowmobile vacation in the Black Hills.  Can't wait.

So, I blogged.  You are caught up...see you in another 6 months!

Rewind and Fast Forward.....

I have been a lazy terrible blogger!!! I am going to update you quickly on our spring/summer:
We all ended school on a great note!...Boys got super reviews/grades from their teachers.  Alic has a lot to work on yet for preschool review, and getting ready for kindergarten!  Eric is officially ready for 4th grade.  I graduated off the class of 2011 gracefully (another group of great kids I will miss!), and ended the year fairly stress free.  We are currently on summer "vacation."  Eric is in summer
rec in the mornings, where he participates in mixed activities, golf, and flag football.  He is also still doing piano lessons every other week, and just started swimming lessons. He is in baseball also,
playing first base, and has logged 3 homerus this season so far.  He is a busy bee!!!!!!
Alic began the summer at the daycare, and is now excited to be home with mom.  He is anxious for next summer so he can finally do stuff too!  He just started swimming lessons, and he learned
how to ride his bike without training wheels on Monday.  He really thinks he is a big shot now!!!!!!!

I started the summer going to my first Nascar race with Kelly..super fun!  AND HOT!!!!  We picked up his boys on the way home and I had them for 3 school, movies, boating, and fun!!
I miss them already, but they will be back the end of July to head to Okoboji for a week.  I worked through the middle of June.  Finally nice to not feel so stressed and like I am finally caught up
a little.  I've been hanging out with the boys, running Eric around, going to bb games, and golfing league on Thursday nights.  I am enjoying my summer immensely.  The boys and I have done a lot
and are glad it's finally warm.  No vacations this summer..but that's ok!
Kelly finally sold his house and is busy truckin' like a fool, as always.   When he can, he gets in some golf and just enjoys relaxing and hanging out on the weekends with me! :)
Hope you are all great...I'll try and be better about updating!!!!!!
