I'm baa-aaack!! This may be the world's longest post...or really short. I haven't decided yet. At this point my handful of followers know my story, but for the sake of blogging let me bring you up to speed. In the several months since my last post, a LOT of "life" has taken place. Jamie and I went through a somewhat painful, often ugly, dramatic divorce. The first couple of months were the most painful time of my life. I basically realized that everything I had known for the past ten years of my life was almost all completely false. I blamed myself, I blamed him, all the usual stages of something like that. Coming out on the other side of it all, I realize that some of the feelings I went through were unreasonable-but that is a place you have to reach all on your own. Our divorce was final on January 25. I can honestly say that I feel like a different person. I am emerging from this with a new outlook, newfound confidence, and more strength than I ever thought I had. But let me be clear; I couldn't have done it without the support of family, friends, and God. I don't know how ANY of them put up with me through the ups and downs (and believe me...there were TONS!). I'm learning more about myself every day, and I'm determined to be the best Kylie I can be. So here's where I am: I'm halfway through my first year of teaching. It has been a rough year, but I love my job, I love my school, and I love my first grade team. The strain of the divorce (emotional and financial) have been rough. I am in the process of moving out of the house we rent and into my parents' house. It was a decision that I struggled with a great deal, but is ultimately what's right for me and my girls. Living with my parents at 28 years old with 2 children is hardly ideal, but I'm SO VERY thankful that it is an option. We need some time to regroup and then start over. My parents are amazing, and ALWAYS have my matter the situation. Emi and Bailey are as entertaining as ever...which is why I knew I had to get back to blogging! I'm going to do my best to keep it up...we shall see!

Lots happening!

I'm alive!! There is a lot going on in the Wilson house, let me just tell you! We have been on the run, and I have been a big slacker on my blog! I have successfully skipped vacation and VBS on her, so maybe I can get some pics posted eventually. My sister, Jana, is coming from NC today and staying for the week. Hopefully I can get some good pics of her kiddos and mine. We are SUPER excited!

Yesterday I took some pics of my Aunt Fran's grands. We had a lot of fun, but it was H O T!!! I took close to 250 pics, so it will take me forever to play around with editing. I'm not very good at that stuff...but here are a few. :)

Wow....Melissa is my hero!

Oh MY! For some reason I decided to try my hand at creating my own layout last night. After MUCH stress and tweaking, I finally gave up and went to bed. I couldn't sleep, and I was I got up and messed with it some more. I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone, but Melissa Sands is the BOMB! After much instruction I have finally posted the darn thing.....and it was a BOOGER!! Not to mention, I just don't have the eye for this stuff like you do, M. The background is growing on me, but I hate the header. I have to get busy with my camera and get some decent pics! Thanks so much for your help Mrs. Sands.....once again, you saved the day!!

Fun in the Sun

We got a little crispy, but we had FUN!

The clouds threatened us a bit on the way, but it turned out to be such a pretty day. The WILD THINGS were actually very good....even the WEE WILD ONE! I know I have a biased opinion...but we sure have some pretty babies! :)
