New Blog Home - Again!

Well we've changed our blog home again - kinda.  We came right back where we started.  Unfortunately we lost all the previous posts we had posted...

We hadn't posted much in 2011, but I am kinda bummed about 2009 and 2010.  Oh well.  We lived those memories right?  I am glad I kept this blog going - we can just pick up where we left off.

So what has been happening in the Bedner family household?

Let's see.  We moved from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Haughton, Louisiana in October 2009.  We bought a house here and really love the area.  The kids have really adjusted well.  They've made friends, started their sports activities.  They're doing well.

Dave is coming up on 20 years in the Air Force!  I can't believe he has been in almost 20 years now.  It has been a privilege being his wife for half of those years.  He just pinned on MSgt too - we are soooo proud of his accomplishment!  Dave's Mom even came out to help pin it on.  It was really nice to have her here and have her experience the ceremonies.  Dave's friends Matt & Ernie also came to help celebrate - which was AWESOME becuase it was a total surprise.  Dave just finished helping coach Derek's flag football team.

I went back to work with AAFES this past March after staying home with the kids for the last 8 years!  I am a Learning Facilitator for the Base Exchange.  I am responsibile for coordinating and teaching the mandatory training for all the AAFES employees at Barksdale.  It has been a challenge (especially since I have been TDY more this year than Dave has), but I really love the job.  Unfortunately it doesn't leave me a whole lot of time for photography and scrapbooking.  I haven't been as involved with the hobby lately, but I do still do projects here and there.

Jimmy started as a Freshman at Airline High this school year, and he just finished his Freshman Football season.  We are so proud of all he has accomplished so far.  His Freshman year has been going well - but the juggling act that has been his schedule has taken a toll on his grades a little.  He has some work to do in some of his classes.  He'll get them up though - I remember Freshman year like it was yesterday - it sure wasn't easy...

Derek has been doing great in 3rd grade.  He just finished his 1st year of tackle football.  He liked it and did great, but is telling us that he really loves Baseball and that he can't wait till next season.  Derek is doing well in school and has been his normal social butterfly self.

I can't believe that the boys are going to be 15 and 9.  Jimmy's birthday is next week - I feel like he was 4 years old not that long ago!  Man the years go by fast...

I know I am missing lots of major life stuff, but I'll post more updates soon.  I hope to be blogging more often now!
