Well, we made it through thirteen weeks of the Police Academy. I'm so proud of Phil for sticking with it and finishing first in his class. I took a bunch of pictures but didn't get any good ones of Phil getting his certificate. I was going to take a picture of it but will have to do it later. The Police Chief Dan Hoffman had some really nice things to say about Phil. Tori and Lanae came and also Pastor and Mrs. Humphrey. It was really neat. One of the officers...Ben Wages...just got a job with FPD and received his badge during the graduation. It was wonderful. Well, without further's the pictures!!! Enjoy!!!

2 Days Left!!!!

Sooooo happy. I know Phil is too. Not all that thrilled about the usual. We are all doing really well...well, not Phil.....he's pretty sick. I guess I passed it along. Poor guy. He showed me some really cool moves the other day though. Defense Tactics. They're pretty don't mess with me. LOL! The boys and I are taking Allen and Natasha to the airport later this afternoon. They are going to Michigan for Thanksgiving. We are forcing them to spend Christmas with us. They are going to stay the night on Christmas Eve....we hope!!! Anyways, I am planning on posting TONS of pictures so prepare yourselves. I think the little boys should be on here all the time. I am also having Phil take some pics of me to put on here. I hope that he will do it. Good ones too. Well, I don't have a whole lot more to say. I had better get going. Love you all, Sprout

Last Week!!!!! 4 days to go!

Well, we are almost there....I can't wait to be done. I think Phil is getting really excited about being done and being able to have time for other things. Mainly his family. All of us at home are MUCH better but poor Phil has it pretty bad. I hope that it passes quickly for him. We are really excited about the Holidays's my favorite time of year. I LOVE Christmas music....especially at church. It is so pretty and the choir always does such a good job. Well, I don't really have a whole lot to say. I am working on several projects and hoping I can get them all done. I am also trying to work out a way to take care of my mom after she has her surgery. I am sure it will be fine no matter what though. Love you all and miss you.....

Here's some Pics for my Photography Class!!!!

Let me know what you all think about them....

6 days left....i think my counting was off

I counted wrong go figure......we're almost done. Only one more day this week and we just have to make it through next week. Phil's final was today. He did really good when I was drilling him last night. He always acts nervous but he knows his stuff. I'll be glad when this is over and we can move on to something new.

OH, I joined an online photography class. I've been working on it in the evenings when the boys are in bed. I am really enjoying it and learning alot. Here are some of the pictures I have done.

Only 8 Days Left!!!

Can you believe it is November? Only a few weeks left until Thanksgiving. I can't believe this year has flown by so fast. It seems like we just had Jesse. Boy it's been a while. We are all doing pretty good. I have had an extremely bad cold for the last four days. It seems to be getting better a little bit each day. Jesse woke up with croup last night so it might make its rounds with the kids again...and then me again. I sure hope not though. We are all very excited about Phil graduating next week. I can't believe that the thirteen weeks is almost over. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. Well, I don't know about the rest of you but we here in the McBroom house have been waiting what seems like forever to finally see Ratatouille. My Mom mailed it to the boys and we should be getting it tomorrow or Friday. We are very excited. I think Allen and Natasha are going to come over and watch it with us. We're going to have a little party. We hardly ever any more watch a movie as a family....especially a new one. This is huge.....anyways, well, I am going to take a nap and hope that I don't feel so bad when I wake up. Love you all, Sprout
