I am a stay at home mom of three boys. I love being a stay at home mom but some days I can't believe how crazy things can get. I love having three kids of the same gender even if they have totally different personalities. Zander my oldest is 8 and a very bright boy. Quentin is 6 and he's our soccer star. Brody is 4 and he's great at destruction. Zack is my hubby and he just graduated from the Wichita Technical Institute IT program. He works very hard so I can stay home with our boys. I love and appreciate that he feels it's important too. He is working worked hard to turn me into a technology junkie like him.
I volunteer for American Youth Soccer Organization Region 49. I have been a volunteer for 11 years now. Currently I hold the board positions of equipment director. I played AYSO while growing up and I love that I can give back by donating my time now. Seeing the kids having a good time and smiling on game days makes it worth all of the hard work. I have held many positions in the region over the years. My favorite position is the equipment director because I get to order the uniforms. Sometimes it can be tough but lets face it shopping is always fun. My boys love the fact they get to pick out their uniforms every year. Every time new styles come out we receive samples and my boys test them. Their stash of soccer clothes means I can go almost a month without doing their laundry in warm weather!
A few of the things I like to do for myself are baking, cooking, cake decorating, scrapbooking, sewing, card making and gardening. When Zander turned 3 he wanted a Lightning McQueen cake and I decided I was going to teach my self to decorate it. Since then I have been working on my techniques. I love to scrap but I am so far behind on my boys' books that I don't even know where to start right now. I started one for my brother for Christmas 3 years ago and it's still not done. I gave it to him half done and promised to finish it. He appreciated more than I thought he would so I need to get it finished. I am currently attempting to sew my first dress. Once again I just decided to give it a try and it's been a tough learning process. I did make a diaper bag over two years ago and it held up so I did something right. I recently made a purse that is holding up to all the abuse err I mean use pretty well. I can now add soap making to my list of hobbies as well.
