Here We Go Again!

I've decided to start blogging again since the death of Apple's Mobile Me accounts sent my old blog into the black hole of the interwebs.  I was a faithful blogger throughout Caleb's adoption and his first 2 years of life.  I fell off the wagon and climbed back on when Joshua was born, only to soon realize that I was too busy with a newborn and a 3 year old to even keep up with a slow moving wagon :)

So I'm back again, and have come up with a new blog that will serve as our family journal.  While most of the content will only be interesting to us and to the boy's grandparents, we do end each day with some pretty funny stories and a few good laughs around here.  It is my hope to document what our life is like with two small boys - and the things I say as their Mom that you would probably never hear come out of the mouth of a 'girl mom'! 

Now to introduce our little family for anyone who does not know us:

Bryan & Betsy

We've been married for 9 years and are high school sweethearts.  I (Betsy) worked in the energy industry as Bryan's sugar mama while he completed graduate school and medical school.  Once Bryan started residency, I became a full time stay at home mom.  Bryan now works as an ER doctor.  We hope you never have to see him because that means you are in bad shape!  I enjoy cooking, crafty stuff, planning the boys birthday parties and I hope to become involved in adoption ministry.  We are passionate about God, each other, our kids, adoption, and we love the Aggies too! We recently built a new home and hope to never move again!


Caleb is 4 years old (born 4/2008) and an energetic, funny, one of a kind kid.  Caleb was born in Kyrgyzstan and joined our family when he was 6 months old.  Caleb loves to build things and is very detail oriented.  His current interests are trains & railroad crossings, water towers (and other towers like cell phone towers, the Eiffel tower, etc) and crosswalk signs.  Caleb loves to eat fruit and his favorite treat is Sonic milkshakes.  Caleb is starting Pre-K for 4 days per week this Fall.


 Joshua is 17 months old (born 3/2011) and joined our family thru open adoption when he was just two days old.  We enjoy a fantastic open relationship with Joshua's birth family.  Joshua is adorable, a quick learner and pretty easy going.   Although Joshua loves to play anything that Caleb is playing, his own interests are airplanes and helicopters, Little Einsteins, Elmo, and dogs & cats.  Joshua loves fruit, cheese and sweets and could care less about pasta or vegetables!  Joshua is starting Mother's Day Out for 2 days per week this Fall.

Thanks for stopping by and reading as I start to blog again.  Hope you enjoy reading about the life and times of our little family!
