How Time Flys

It has been 2 months since I last posted a blog. and boy has there been a lot going on in the Dunn Family's lives. Avery started Covenant Academy in K-4 at the first of August and Ayden started back at Mother's Morning Out in his 2 year old class. Avery loves school and is learning a lot already. Each week, the class learns a new letter and with the letter there is a bible verse. On Fridays, the student has an opportunity to say the verse to the teacher. So far, Avery is doing great. He is a lefty, so the teacher has been working extra hard to help Avery learn to trace his letters and numbers. Ayden is learning his color and shapes. At his age, Avery knew so much more, but Ayden is getting it....Slowly. I am also starting a full-time job at a local hospital. I am excited. I begin on September 21st. I will be the admission/discharge nurse for four medical/surgical floors from 3p-11p. I will help out the floor nurses with admissions and discharges but won't take a full patient load. The hours are perfect for our family. Robbie is usually home by 4:00pm every day. We did hire a college girl to come to our home every day from 2:15 until daddy gets home to cover a short window in between our jobs. I don't have to work weekends or holidays, so that is nice. I get full benefits which are excellent when you work for a hospital. That is an answer to prayer because the benefits from Robbie's job would increase so much every year. Robbie is loving his job and he is staying very healthy. I have been feeling good too. I chopped my hair off. It is a whole lot easier to take care of. Well I will write more later. Hope everyone is well.

Hello Again!

Don't know if anyone really checks this any more since I don't write much. I was actually reading my cousins when I decided to write a short update. Not on my home computer so I will have to add pictures later. We are having a great summer. Robbie and I went to Mexico for a week. We needed a trip after all we have been through these past two years. The boys split their time here at home between Nana's and Granny's. They didn't miss us for a second. Robbie stays busy at work. I am also working 3-4 nights a week to help pay for private school for Avery in the fall. The boys and I go to the gym 4 times a week. There is a daycare there that they love to go to. I also take them on weekly trips around Macon. We've been to the summer movie program, Twin Oaks farm, Amphora pottery studio, Monkey Joe's, and swimming at Nana's pool. It's been nice to sleep in a bit and just do what we want. We are going to the beach as a family for Labor day. I have been feeling really good recently (knock on wood). Robbie celebrated his 30th birthday this year with a surprise party. Well that is a quick run down. Will try to upload photos soon. Until then you can visit our new web site at

It has been a while since I posted an entry. I don't even know if anyone still follows me or not. We have been so busy around here. I was only supose to go back to work 2 nights a week. well that turned into 30 hours a week. The boys are busy in Mother's Morning Out. We registered Avery for K-4 at a local Private school. I can't believe we have one starting school. Avery just started Wee-Ball. It's T-ball for 3 & 4 year olds. He is on the Cubs. His first game is March 14. We have only had practice once a week. The first practice he got bored and gave up. but he is doing better now and really likes "baseball". Ayden potty trained himself recently. I was going to get started with him this summer, but he decided he wanted to be like his big brother. We still have accidents but he is doing very well. This is a quick catch-up on our busy lives.

Glad the holidays are over!

I love the holidays, but this year was very busy. We had family come in town and we traveled. Add my job to the mix and I was very stressed this season. I am glad to get back to some sort of regular schedule. I have been working a lot more than originally intended. We have bills that we need to pay off, so I have been picking up extra shifts. It is starting to ware on me. I work 3 or 4 nights a week. Then I keep up with the house and take the boys to and from MMO. Plus cook meals for the hole week in advance to help Robbie on the nights I am not home. I am tired all the time. I just pray that I stay healthy because I don't have time to be sick.

We are in the process of enrolling Avery in Covenant Academy. We went to an open house last Thursday and we have an interview with the headmaster this Thursday. It is a really great school so we pray that he will be accepted. It is hard to believe that we will have one starting school next year. The boys have always been in some sort of school since they were 6 months old. We put them in MMO at a near by church so next year won't be too big of a shock for Avery. It will probably be more difficult on mommy than Avery.

Ayden is going through a tough stage right now. He is being very mean for some reason. I guess he feels like he has to be mean to keep up with his big brother. We pray it is just a phase that he will soon grow out of because I am tire of spanking him all day long.

I hope I will have the time to continue to blog on a regular basis.
