Where to begin??? I have not posted in a while for many reasons....the main reason is simply that I have not a minute of free time! I wasn't even able to get Christmas cards out this year! Who knows, maybe you will all get a Happy Summer card:-)

Summery: Stacy is working out of town, but driving back and forth everyday.....leaves at 5, home just before the kids are going to bed. The work is a huge blessing, but it has been really hard on the kids and I; we are so used to him being here!

I'm still plugging away in school. This next semester will be one of my busiest and most mentally challenging, but also is supposed to help me the most for preparing to take the MCAT.

Mason still hates school, but I guess most 16 yr olds do. Not much else is new.

Kaymi is entering the scary world of boys....need I say more! I'm just thankful she has sports to keep her REALLY busy!

Kyah just celebrated her 13th birthday, and one year in America! The past few months have been hard for her. I can't even imagine coming to a new country as a young teenager and trying to not only have to learn all about a completely different culture, but also go through "teenager hood" at the same time, yikes!

Caden is now obsessed with tying flies and hoping to make money selling them to local fishing shops. He's enjoying himself and getting pretty good:-)

Chloee is very much enjoying 4th grade and she just made the all city girls honor choir!

Chase is preparing for his 1st "Friday night fight" in Taekwondo. I'm scared for his opponent if he competes with him like he does on the garbage can,hehee:-)

There is a little update in the life of the Lockharts! Not too terribly exciting, but always busy:-)

3 hrs and lots of hair pulling:-)

I have to say that this girl has the tightest hair I have ever worked on! Almaz had joked with us about the hours it would take, but WOW:-) Kaymi and I did have fun with this project this weekend and Kyah LOVES it.

Popcorn heads!

Thanks to my Mom we had a fun and wacky Friday night Family night:) She sent the kids a popcorn ball decorating kit, (harder than you would think) but soooo much fun. Here are some pics of their artistic abilities with candy:-)

Fitting In

I am happy to report that all of the fears I had about Kyah starting Middle School have not came to fruition, Yippie! I worried that without being the "new girl", and not being in a small elementary school she might just get lost in the shuffle and not get the extra help she still needs. I worried for nothing, she has amazing teachers who are giving her the extra TLC she needs:) Fitting in with her peers has not been an issue either!! I just remember how mean those darn girls were when I was in Jr. High, Yikes! She seems to either let things roll off of her, or everyone is truly nice to her because she never has anything bad to say. Anyway, I am relieved because I don't think I have any energy left in these bones to go pull a mama bear down at the school:-) Adjustment at home is still a little tricky, but we are reaching the year mark and I am hoping that things might start to become a little easier........maybe???
All of the other kids have adjusted well to their new year too, no surprises there. Easie~Peasie, THANK YOU LORD, you know how much we can handle!
I am struggling through my VERY full credit load and wondering what in the world I was thinking when I registered for all of these difficult courses......oh ya, I didn't have a choice, heheeee.
I just hope my school year seems to go as fast as the kids always do.
Miss K is getting ready for drivers ed and trying to perfect the art of the manual transmission, I almost have a heart attack when we go driving , but she is doing well. Practice makes perfect:-)
Mr. C had his first football game yesterday and did amazing, boy is he fast!
Little man and little miss are kicking away at taekwondo; a great release of energy after school.
That is about all going on now, hopefully it won't take me another month to post!

Back to reality....for 3 weeks!

I had my last day of class on the 24th to finish up my summer semester~yahhhh! I am having so much fun being back in school, but it is nice to have nothing to do for a couple of weeks. (This explains my lack of posts!)

On the 25th we left town and headed for Vegas for some R&R...or so we thought:-) We ended up getting up bright and early everyday and heading from one activity or another; it was so much fun! We brought my parents with us, what a God send!!! They took the older kids on outings that the younger ones weren't interested in or it was to late at night for, (swimming with sharks, and midnight light shows!)

Here are just a few pics of our family friendly Vegas vacation!!!! (my parents took better pictures, so there may be more to come:-)
