Its been a long time since I blogged..... Life has been a whirlwind... I last posted in September of 2015...On November 6th 2015, My mom passed away.... I had already split up with my Significant other.... He was mentally and emotionally abusive to me and physically abusive to the kids... I needed to admit that to myself that I could take care of them... but loosing Mom, I hit rock bottom... I also found out my "boyfriend" at the time and I use that term loosely was married.... My depression took over... I also wasn't a mom to my kids... I was horrible.... I probably should have admitted myself... Anyways... Kent and Sarah were also there but they did little to help... but regardless those were my babies and I was responsible for taking care of them.... I was responsible for making sure they ate, the house was clean, they had clean clothes, etc... I was their mom... I didn't do that... I let my depression from loosing Mom take over... On January 21st, 2016 Alyssa was caught huffing markers at group... They had to report it to DHS... this is not the first time or the second time we have been reported to DHS.. over the years apparently we have had about 15 reports... I know some of them had to do with Hope and Dallas staying with us... but they wouldn't listen to me about that... So they showed up on January 22nd, 2016 and took custody of my children.... I lost it... They said that I was neglecting Alyssa's mental health... Um excuse me but if Alyssa is attending counseling, has mental health appts, dr appts I think that I'm not neglecting her mental health just because I'm not putting her in the hospital... And why take my other children... I'm shattered... My heart is broken even worse then what it was... I can't stay at my house... its not a home without my kids... I still cry as I write this, just thinking about the hell I'm going threw... They put Jace and Austin in Allwe in one foster home, they put Joshua in another foster home, they put ChiAnne in yet another foster home and they admit Alyssa to the calm center (a place she has been before which has done nothing for her) then they moved her to another hospital place... she continued to act out... they finally got her into St. Anthony's in Oklahoma City where she spent till August.... She was then moved from there to the same foster home as ChiAnne... Just before school started she was then moved again to Owasso to another foster home and started school there... this foster home has been great for her thou... Joshua was moved to the shelter in Pawhuska and then moved to Norma and Billy's... which when he finally got up to Norma's he has finally adjusted and is doing fabulous... his gpa is a 3.69, the best he has had yet... he is smart as a whip, he just needed to apply himself.... Austin has been moved twice... the first he was acting out and needed to moved to be by himself... he was moved to a great placement... and this placement was great for him... he flourished in it... then the foster dad had some heart issues and needed to have surgery so he was moved due to no fault of his own.....Jace has also been moved twice... the foster home closed and so they had to move Jace immediately... Jace and Austin are now back together and they doing wonderful... ChiAnne actually came home for a bit... however I got the flu, bronchitis and ARDS and ended up in the hospital again on life support so she went back into foster care and is with Jace and Austin... We go to court on February 28th and hopefully Jace, Austin and ChiAnne come home....I've also completely separated from Kent... We've been done for over a year now... I'm with a wonderful man now... He has 4 kids of his own... 3 boys and a girl... so now our grand total is 10 kids... plus we have a 1 month old grandson... eekkk.... We will take things as they come... but for now... We are gonna continue fighting for my kids to get them home where they belong... So the kids are now 16, 12, 10, 7 and 6... hard to believe that I've got kids who are almost done with school... Alyssa is planning her prom.. "night in the city" she is a sophomore... she is also planning college... She wants to be an emergency room dr.. I can not believe she is planning college... My daughter is planning her future...how did that happen?? wasn't she just a baby in my arms??  she plans on going to OU which she has planned on going since she was in Kindergarten... So that's our update... I will try not to wait so long to update the next time...

Howdy

Dusting off the old laptop and gonna get back into posting on the blog now that all the kids are in school again... Yes you read that right... All my kids are in school... count them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 kids are in school... I really don't know who was more excited, them or I.... haha...

ChiAnne is now 5 and is still the princess of this house... She knows she rules the roost, haha....Mama is still the queen and controls the roost but she likes to think she does to... 

Jace is 6 and in the first grade... Does wonderfully I might add... I did put him back on the reading program as he needed it... He lost some ground over the summer which is concerning with him being autistic but he will be fine.....

Austin is making all A's and 1 B but his B is in handwriting...His Aunt Sarah and I are working with him on it so hopefully it will help him and bring up that grade....

Joshua well he is Joshua... His math grade WOAH!! he is grounded until further notice... He wants to play basketball, no siree not in this house....he isn't.. he is also failing a few other classes so as stated to begin with he is grounded....


Alyssa isn't doing so well, we had to place her inpatient back in August and she hasn't been able to come home... I miss her something terrible... My house just aint the same without my baby girl....

Kent's health is deteriorating.... His kidneys are still not functioning right, they have ordered more heart tests.... VA is on my last nerves but what can one do... gggggrrrrrr.... thats about all I can do.....

Sarah moved in with us over the summer.... I absolutely love having my baby sister here....Its been amazing... She enrolled in RSU.... Finally decided on a major and a minor.... Teaching which is in our blood and native american history which I couldn't be more proud for her!!! YAY!!!! 

We've added 3 new dogs to the circus.... yep its a circus around here.... I have new pics to add but they are on my phone and its so hard to add things from my phone to here but I promise I will try to get them from the phone to the computer one of these years....

February 23rd, 2015

So I haven't posted in awhile....Its now February... We haven't had much snow, a dusting here, a dusting there.... Definantly not an Oklahoma snow, lol....

Chi is now 5...Her birtday was fun.. She is so excited but yet heartbroken... She thinks that now she is 5 she can go to school...I had to break it to her that she couldn't go till August, poor girl...We got her a bike and some dress up clothes... she loves everything and is always wearing the dresses....



Kids are doing fabulous in school... Alyssa made an A on her pracitce OCCT state writing test... She has to pass this test to get her driving permit....Um no she isn't driving and she says she has no interest in driving....I don't think my nerves could handle it...

Joshua is struggling with language arts.... We are working to catch him up...he isn't doing the work is the only reason why he is struggling....

Austin is in the top 3 of his class... the kid doesn't need much help...He has a little self confindence issue but he is great....

Jace was my biggest concern starting school as the fire dept is 2 blocks away from the school and across a busy hwy.... he hasn't tried to run once.... hasn't run to the door to see the sirens, nothing.... he is excelling in school... He is already working on 1st grade work....

A log overdue update......

Ok, so I'm back among the land of the living.... Seriously I have known that I need to update my  blog for months (yes Aunt Judi, I know ;))  it's been 20 months since I posted so I will post a major update as well as pics ;) that is if I can get them uploaded from my phone.... So many changes in our lives..... We are still in Chelsea, doubt we will ever move even thou I hate the school district with a passion.....

Alyssa is now 14..... Ugh.... She was diagnosed bipolar in April, not surprising.... What is surprising is the schitzoeffective disorder (a combo of bipolar and schizophrenia) ....... She is a handful..... She is in the 8th grade now and still plays the clarinet..... 


Joshua turned 10 in June..... Crazy kid is growing up to fast.... 5th grade is upon us.... 
He has talked nothing but playing guitar for the last 2 yrs, now that it's here he is playing the trumpet.... Not so good on momma's migraines but it's an instrument none the least....


Austin is 8, crazy kiddo.... He is in the 3rd grade and really having a tough time with adjusting.... Says the work is to hard, lol but if he takes 2 mins to slow down, he knows it all..... I think he just needs his self confidence built up.....


Jace is now 5.... He was diagnosed autistic last year.... It's been a whirlwind.... We decided not to continue with therapy for him but wait till this year..... He will have speech, pt and ot.... I have already went toe to toe with his principal plus his bus driver.... And apparently they didn't believe me when I told them that he was autistic because they dug out his file and was amazed at the amount of info and testing that I had given them.... 

ChiAnne is 4, drama queen/diva/princess..... She is seriously the one who is in control of this house... She rules her brothers and sister..... She knows she has them wrapped tightly around her pinkie and knows how to get them to do what she wants them to do..... She is spending the year at home with momma..... Hehehe what can I say, she is the baby after all.....

Kent had surgery July 10th for a torn bicep muscle... Hazards of horses.... 

This past August 5th, we celebrated 15 years.... Seems like only yesterday..... But here we are 15 yrs and 5 kids later.... I hope to be more active on the blog again now that Jace is in school.... He always kept me hopping..... 

So that is our update... Hope this find you and yours, happy and healthy!!!

LONG TIME NO HEAR

Good lord, life is never dull with 5 kids.......Lets see what I can post while I am at mom's........

Alyssa~She is now 12, 5 ft 1, almost as tall as her momma.......And wearing my shoes, dang it.......She is in the 6th grade and doing awesome.....All A's and B's but one lonely C that is one point away from a B.......She is now playing the clarinet as well......Did beautifully at her band program in December.......She seems to be healing ok from being thrown from the horse and breaking her back in September.......

Joshua~Joshie is the same ornery little kid he has always been, he calls his uncle Bobby a punk, LOL........They love each other and now the Punk uncle as he calls him bought him a Hot pink tshirt that says "don't laugh its your girlfriend's shirt" LOL....We do not have wrestling in Chelsea which broke his heart......I'm looking into Foyil to see if they have it at school otherwise we will have to drive to Claremore for wrestling and pay out the yingyang for it.......Seriously it is crazy how much they wanted for it.........If I could find a house in LG school district I would be going back, the kids did so great there but I'm happy with my house now, LOL.........

Austin~Is at the top of his class seriously, when he can focus, his teacher has nothing but brags on him of how sweet he is, how smart he is when he focuses but as well all know with adhd focus is nearly impossible.......He has had his meds changed recently so we will see how it goes......

Jace~My sweet trouble maker.....He of course has been nonstop sick again.....It started around the beginning of Oct/end of Sept.......Poor kid can not catch a break......He has been so sick that they have cancelled his therapy services because we can not attend them while he is sick, not that they wanted to do them anyways........Such a difference between Oklahoma and Kansas......You still can't understand him........And its hard to believe that he will be 4 in April and just now in a 3t......This boy can get himself into trouble without waking up, seriously.........Trouble finds him.....the only time we can relax is when he is asleep..........

ChiAnne~The baby of the family.........And the silly girl knows it......Her love of horses is indescribable as well as her love of Hello Kitty........This girl is a fashionista in the making.......Everything has to be pink.......Better if it has hello kitty or horses on it.......She is turning 3 next month :((, mommy is having a hard time with that but we will be ok.......Just one step closer to her growing up is all.....


The house........Lord this house is a mess......We bought it knowing it needed finished but everytime we turn around we are having to fix something that was already done or redo something that was done wrong....We need to upgrade the outside breaker box from a 100 amp to a 200amp.......Not really looking forward to that but Kent says he can do it so we are scrapping the money up because of course it isn't cheap, we have to replace the box, the breaker and something else.........And beings it is our house we can do with the work ourselves so in the meantime something else that needs to be done gets pushed aside........We did finally insulate the kitchen........Need 2 more pieces of sheet rock in there (maybe more) but then I can start filling, finishing and sanding it so that we can paint by summer......Exciting :D

The horses, LOL........Shadow now has an official name on his papers.......Yup its about time ain't it.........Its drumroll please Houdini's Shadow.........That horse can get out of anywhere.......Yesterday morning Kent went out to check the mail and he was laying out of the pasture in the front of the feed shed........Like haha I'm waiting here for you to feed me......Seriously he is handful......Like I said on facebook, My horses can stir up more trouble in 2 mins then my children can........haha

OK so thats the most recent update.........I'm without a computer right now and not sure how to get to this from my phone, i"m sure I can as it is an iPhone and we all know how those are.........Love it!!! but there are days I wish I could throw the dang thing........

Updates

Thinking back about my post on the election, boy how right I was, LOL....But now I need to post about the going ons in our little neck of the woods......

We moved back to Oklahoma in July.....Awesomeness.....Yes that is a word, don't argue with it, hehehe (Aunt Judi that was directed to you :D, Love ya) So happy to be back on sooner soil and apparently so are the kids....We got progress reports yesterday.....Alyssa is in the 6th grade now and loving every minute of it...She has 2 A's, 3 B's and a C and even that C is a high C, her B's are 1 or 2 points from an A....And better yet she is completely mainstreamed..She is also in Band and taking Clarinet....She practices every night and is actually getting good at it and has passed her class mates on.....Here is the bad about her......On Sunday the 9th while Grandma was here, she fell off Dream Catcher...Shadow being the butt he is started acting out because he wasn't being messed with.....He bumped into Dream as Alyssa was climbing on top of her and she lost her balance coming right back off before she was even settled on her back.....Landing on her neck/back funny....We called the ambulance and she was taken to Claremore where they did a CT scan, it showed that she has fractured T 3, 4, and 5.......We go to the ortho dr tomorrow.....She missed most of last week because of it, Poor girl tried to go on tuesday and was completely worn out when she got home...She has to have a pillow behind her back and the bus is not exactly the most comfortable place for her...But I have faith that she is healing as she has slowed down complaining of her back hurting.....I did make her use her back muscles to bend over......Using my nursing knowledge I thought it was best she stretch them by bending but not picking anything up.......She seems to be tolerating it well....She also is out of gym until further notice which actually has her upset, she loves gym......They are running the track and she is enjoying the running......Now on to Joshua....He is a handful but is a very remarkable kiddo....Full of life and can't wait for wrestling to start again...He is so excited to be back here and doing the wrestling that he knows.....Austin will be joining on the fun this year....Yikes 2 boys in wrestling is going to be dividing this house....Which means Dad and I will divide and conquer once again....One of us will have the 3 yr old hurricane and the other will have the 2 yr old tornado....They are still at their finest....Ornery little stinkers.....I have a parent teacher conference with Joshua's teacher tomorrow evening so I'm hoping that he is doing fine as Austin's teacher isn't requesting a conference with me but then again I have sent everything I have on Austin's testing and spoke with her before school even started about Austin and his "plans" LOL.....She knows his little escapades...Hehehe Other than both Joshua and Austin have bad allergies....Something that Joshua has never had to deal with.....ChiAnne is being a normal 2 yr old.....Love her personallity but yet she is a handful at the same time....We had her eval done recently and she has completely caught up and passed all her age range goals.....Most are at 3 1/2, she won't be 3 til Feburary.....Then for 2 months and 2 days I will have 2-3 yr olds.....I saved the best for last.....Jace Andrew Lane......Omgosh this boy knows no fear whatsoever...He is a handful....He never slows down which is why I have nicknamed him the 3 yr old hurricane......he started therapy again this past monday, while he wanted nothing to do with speech he did warm up to the OT just fine.....He is still severly delayed in both areas and will continue to get services for awhile to come.....As of now he is getting them threw the school district here in Chelsea but there is a possibility that he will be transferred to project Keep in Claremore to help with therapies depending on how they assess his delays..We also have contacted someone to have him evaluated for aspergers/autism....I do not think he has autism but I do think he has something else going on besides just being a preemie.....But this is the first step in the road to figuring out his quirks and how to help him...He will be having surgery again on the 28th.....He is having his tonsils out and tubes put back in (our 3rd set) we have gotten his allergies under control but he is still having seasonal allergies and with the rain we have had recently, the trees and the grasses are confused and they are pollenating....YIKES.....Ok so I think that sums up our little ole family in a nutshell ok, well ok maybe a chapter, LOL...but either way there it is........
