oh what a birthday!!!

So I turned 35 yesterday,the wife took me to the zoo. We went with our whole family, the wife's mom,step dad,sister brother in law and their 2 kids and some other kid. My mom and my bob went too. The kids all dressed in Halloween costumes and we had a great day. I told myself that I would enjoy the day no mater what, an I did. I didn't let the in laws get to me and enjoyed the day. My wife woke me up with singing and kisses, the kids behaved so well all day. we rode rides, saw animals and had a great great day. I think one of my favorite moments was riding the scrambler with my mom, she belly laughed the whole time. I think this year is going to be more about family for me. I want to spend as much time as I can doing things that the kids will remember for the rest of their lives. We only have about 18 months before K graduates from high school, then she will be joining the Air Force and starting her own adventures. Thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday, it means so much.

My daughter

My daughter is 16, she is a junior in high school and she is the typical teenage girl. She tries my patience, she aggravates me to tears and she worries me. She also fills me with pride, makes my heart swell with love, and she amazes me everyday. I was 18 when i had my daughter, I believe that everything that life hands us is for a reason.I say this because I know had I not gotten pregnant with her I would not have the life that I have now. I know that I would have moved away from my small home town and then I wouldn't have E, S or the wife. My daughter may not have been in my plans, but I thank the goddess each and everyday for the unexpected joy that she has been. She is growing up way way to fast. Tonight she competed in her conference championship run for cross country. She placed 23 out of 112 girls. she didn't quite make the time she wanted but it was freezing cold and she did very well. (she missed her time by 12 seconds)I watch her everyday and wonder what she will grow to be. she dreams of going to the Air Force like her mama, She wants to be a police dog handler. I have told her she can be what ever she wants to be I will love her no matter what. I am adopted so when she was born I remember thinking this is the first person that I have ever been connected to, my blood runs in her veins I will protect her. It seems like that was just yesterday.I can't wait to see what she will make of herself. She has already made me so proud.

Could you not just eat them up with a spoon! This was on Sunday while I was at work, s grabbed E yelled cheese. The wife was quick enough to get the camera and get this great shot. They make me laugh they make me smile and they drive me crazy but look at them.

the oath

Today was a long long day, the wife and I took the kids to "the skull session" at the Ohio state game.(skull session is a way to make pep rally sound more butch). Today was the day that the wife took her oath of enlistment for the Air Force Reserves. I was an emotional mess as she took the oath, I have never been more proud of her. It was hard for me to sit there and watch her as just her friend. It was hard for me to not throw my arms around her when she came off the floor. I am so proud that she wants to do this and I will standby her. I know that she feels this is what she should be doing and I respect that it's just hard for me to understand how she can do this when they would throw her out for just being herself. on that note I should say the wife was in a tshirt with her double Venus symbol tat shining on the back of her neck and her rainbow star showing on her wrist.
It was refreshing to hear Obama say that DADT should go away tonight and I hope it does very very soon. I know that is will be hard to keep my hands off once she is in the new camies!!!!

chix 4 a cure.

Today the wife kids and I went to a breast cancer benefit. k ran the 5K and won in her age division. It was nice to see my little community get behind one of their own. There were about 500 people that came out for the run/walk. There were people that came in from all over the country to participate and get behind the survivor. It was a beautiful day and the daughter did us proud. I wish that we had known about this sooner and then the wife and I would have participated. I want to take the daughter and do the Susan g Komen run in may. It's what I'm training for now, and it will get one of the things on my bucket list accomplished. all in all it was a great day and something very worth getting behind!
