He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Czorapinski's Who?

Look at me.  Sitting down to write on this blog.  Bet you don't even remember who we are.  We're that weird family that resembles a traveling circus.  You know the crazy mom and dad with the three boys who are ALWAYS wrestling, fighting, laughing, touching, complaining...  Well here we are and it's been a while so let me get you caught up to date.

First, the boys have grown.  A LOT.  Noah is now a big 4th grader.  He's as tall as me (I know, not hard) and we wear the same size shoe.  He loves to be outside and is playing soccer this fall.

Adam and Joshua are now 3rd graders.  This is the first year that they are in separate classes.  I felt like it was time.  They, just as any siblings, were spending too much time together.  They need a break from each other.  We'll see how this goes.  They miss each other but I think they like doing their own thing.  They are both playing travel soccer and spend time on the field and in goal.  They love it but the pressure of being goalie stresses momma out.  :-)

Joshua just passed his 3 years out of chemo mark.  That makes it 5 years since he was considered in remission so he got the official "technically cured."  We all know that doesn't really mean anything but he is doing great, rotten as ever and loving life.  We couldn't ask for more.

Jeff and I are hanging in there.  We're just trying to make it through this parenting thing alive! We were able to celebrate our 10 year anniversary this past fall by taking a our first alone vacation since our honeymoon. Of course, where did we go?  Disney World!  We enjoyed it so much, that we decided this vacationing without kids thing is fun.  We are planning to escape for a few days this October to Key West with some friends.  Whoo Hoo!

So that's us in a nut shell.  Life is busy but all is well and we'll take it!
