I have a secret!

I have a confession to make.  I've been keeping a very exciting secret from my readers.  My ornery teenage brother, Patrick, is coming to stay with me for a month!  I think he is causing my Dad to have mini heart attacks and strokes with his sharp tongue and sassy wit teenage attitude.

 I know what you are thinking.  "Why do I want him to come?"  Patrick was born when I was in 7th grade.  I spent a lot of time with him, watching him grow up, coming home to visit him from college, and these last few years, witnessing him becoming a teenager.

Flying with Dad, 2009

Denver, Colorado vacation with the hubs and me, 2009.

The hubs and Patrick at Chiefs vs Steelers game, 2011.

Time has flown by.  I feel like I have a special relationship with Patrick, and even though he can act like a pill, he's always mostly respectful to me and the hubs.

I've already set up Spanish classes, created football themed workouts, and planned on helping P learn to dive.  We even talked about snorkeling with the whale sharks that come to PdC for the summer months!  I can't wait to share my life with him and give him new experiences that small-town Kansas just can't provide.

This time will also give the hubs and I practice for the most trying years of a parent's life... teenage years.  If Jade and I can pass this without too many bumps, I'm optimistic we can handle one of our own!  I may be eating my words by July 4th, but I will be too stubborn to admit it!
