August 2012 Family Update time

Hello Everyone, It is that time again to update you all on what has been going on.. This has been pretty crazy here right now.. We finally got our orders.. so we have been super busy with appts and setting up dates to move... we will be flying out on September 22nd from Frankfurt Germany and then flying into JFK.. we got a few idea's for Air Port rides to get home. so Not stressing about that it will all work out fine.. God is In Control and he will make things all work out... Any ways... besides crazy busy with getting things ready for this Move in 2 1/2 wks from writing this Post.... things are going pretty well... here are updates on each one of us... Sit back grab a coffee and enjoy

Tristan: He is doing really good.. he is talking a ton more.. climbs basically everything.. and he is to smart for his own doing... the other day I heard nosie in the kitchen and went in there to see.. and There Tristan was standing on a chair with a box of cereal the milk a bowl spoon and a straw.. make his own cereal..  that little stinker.. went and got a chair to climb up onto the counter to get himself cereal and he was making his own bowl.. only thing he didnt do yet by the time I got there was pour in the milk... he is trouble.. but he is good at cleaning up after himself.. when ever he is done eating at the table he gets up takes his plate and then walks it to the kitchen throws it into the sink and says All done and then walks away.. he is such a good boy most the time.. he just still loves to pick on Alyssa  But she kinda ask for it to happen since she picks on him too..  but he is a good kid growing up fast on me.. but all in all he is doing really good

Alyssa:  She is doing good. she my trouble maker and loves to tick off her sisters and Brother.. oh she will be fun in school.. hopefully over time she will knock it off though.. she is very thick headed and just likes to try and get her own way all the time.. but she doesnt always act like that she can be a really good kid at times.. but other times she is a pain.. Love her to death she just likes to test her waters to see what all she can and cant get away with..  oh the fun testing stage.. but that is a 4yr old for you... but all in all she is doing good

Ayme: she is doing good.. she was so sad today (9/4/12) since school started up for Kindergarten and she wanted so badly to start with the school here... my poor girl..  Hopefully when we finally get back home things will all work out for her with school and things.. she is a smart kid but also a stubborn child as well..but all in all she is doing good..

Michelle: she is doing good.. growing super tall but super skinny I think she could fit 2t waist of pants with how skinny she is.. she is so taking after her daddy with the height and the skinny... she is all excited for starting school when we get back home.. she loves the idea of a school uniform she is my girly girl and just loves the same routine and everyone dressing alike so she doesnt feel different.. she is a sweet girl.. all my friends are always trying to keep her since she is just to sweet.. out of all our kids.. everyone wants Michelle.. lol.. and to think she use to be a really troubled child back in Texas.. so glad she went the sweet/quiet way instead of still being her biting/hitting/kicking/screaming way.. oh those years were stressful for me.. but she is just doing great

Samantha: she is doing good.. but where oh where to start with her... she is growing up on  me way to fast she is 8 1/2 yrs old now.. and thinks she knows it all... if her at this age is rough man oh man do we have it in for when she turns into a teen.. she is a good kid. but her attuide has been rough lately.. and of course the stress of moving and her leaving all her friends behind and all is rough too... I think I will see if maybe Samantha can get her friends address.. and they can be pen pals.. I know i know.. so Old school.. but it would be neat for the girls to be able to write back and forth and then they can draw pictures and write their own then with out the computer help.. I love kids spelling and seeing their hand writing.. but I think she would like that.. but all in all Samantha is doing good.. she has her list of chores she does every day to help out in the house.. and then she goes out to play with her friends as soon as they are home from school.. she cant wait to go to school.. but she HATES the idea of the uniform.. oh yea. this part will be fun.... but any ways.... she is  good

Matthew: He is doing good.. just super busy with running around like crazy doing all the check list for moving and for getting out of the military.. he is so excited to be done with the military and to start all over new.. Lord willing everything will work out for his plans and ideas for going to school and finding part time work and of course working on our house.. lots of crazy time ahead for us... but he is doing alright...

Me: well I'm doing alright so far.. I  mean I get times I want to freak out and scream about everything.. so Much stuff going on.. and between. sorting through the house.. packing us things, trying to keep the house clean (which never seems to stay clean), tending to 5 kids 24/7 (since they didnt go back to school here) running appts, food shopping, and just trying to keep life going some what smooth..  I just stay super busy.. as for my whole weight loss that I have been want/needing to do that all is basically on hold.. I just dont got the time to be able to do what all I want to do.. I hope to still get to the gym here and there in the evenings.. but we shall see.. life is just crazy right now... so not fully sure how i'm really doing... for now.. I'll say i'm doing okay.. 

Rocky: our puppy..(7yrs old) he is doing good and super excited since he finally see's that he is flying out with us.. his dog box is all ready.. his doggy ticket is bought (150Euros) and he is just ready to fly.. he always wants to go with us when ever we leave the house since he knows eventually it will be that time.. he is such a great dog.. so glad I found him he fits our family perfect...

okay okay.. I think that is about it...  thank you to those who read this all.. and Keep us still in your thoughts and prayers specially for the 22nd for our long flight and traveling.... God is In Control.. that is what I keep telling myself.. thank you all again

God Bless

July Family update 2012

Hello Everyone... Its that time again to update you all on whats been going on over here in Germany specially in our final so many weeks here... We wanted to be leaving on August 25th of this Month but sad to say with how paper work issues been going I dont see us to be leaving then.. Its really All in Gods hands when we will be leaving and how everything works out.. our House here in Germany is slowly getting cleaned up sorted though and things done for the move.. and our House in PA is also being worked on and getting ready for us for when we get there.. thanks to my Wonderful In-Laws over there... Things are slowly coming together.. and very great-ful for everything...  Any ways.. Update time for each of us.. sit back grab a coffee and enjoy the Beckman Family Update for this past Month of July :)

Tristan: He is doing well getting big and to smart.. Matt is calling him our Little Charmer since he loves to try to charm his way to getting what he wants and he is only 2yrs old .. the other Day there was music playing with a Movie we were watching and he was slow dancing rocking back and forth and then his cute little self stop dancing and walked over to me gave me his hand and then wanted me to dance with him it was so cute which that is when Matt started to call him our Little Charmer he is such a sweet/funny boy most the time.. he has his terrible 2s with picking on his sisters and throwing stuff.. but we are working on it as always like we have done with all our children.. but he is doing good and did great too with his 1st ever set of shots he had a small fever but nothing at all to worry about... but all in all he is doing great

Alyssa:  She is doing good.. she been a drama queen lately so she makes Mama a little cranky at time since I do like to deal with drama queens.. but we are slowly working on it... she is excited about the move to see family in so many weeks she keeps asking basically every day if we can leave yet its nice to see her excited about that all.. now to just keep working on her brat-ness and bad ways... she got her 2nd set of shots this past month too.. she got a fever from them but not to  bad this time around but she is now all update on her shots til she is 5yrs old..  but all in all she been doing alright...

Ayme: She is doing good.. she is excited about moving..and basically ask every day are we moving yet.. it can be annoying at a times.. But I'm just glad she is happy about the move up ahead... she is a smart kid and loves to learn new things.. she likes to press her sisters bottons at times to upset them but yea slowly working on it.. she is our tomboy who can be the sweetest kid at times..  but all in all she is doing good..

Michelle: She is doing good.. she is back and forth about the move but she is super excited for when she will be going to school again.. and she just LOVES the idea of School Uniforms  she tells me that that is a good thing to do then you dont have everyone wanting or complaining about someone elses clothes and how they want to wear that too she likes the idea of the uniforms and everyone looking the same so then no one can complain what who is wearing what.. . Michelle likes to think outside of the box about things which is great that she does that.. she is a very bright and Smart girl which we are working on her reading for when school starts  again for her... hopefully she will do well with the reading part.. she knows all her letters and sounds and can do blend sounds and even read some books she has learned a lot and her speech and regular teachers did very well with her this past School year..  she is our sweet heart child and everyone always wants to take her since she is such a good kid.... but all in all Michelle is doing great

Samantha:  She is doing good... She can be a pain in the butt at times with her new found horrible attitude that she has on sad to say most days lately.. I'm not sure what has gotten into her her.. I mean I have an idea.. but she is learning the hard way that Mommy and Daddy dont take the bad attitude that she been giving.. she can be a great kid at a times and then she has her days of being grounded to the house with no friends to play with and other things...  she doesnt like the idea that she has real chores now that she has to do daily but that is the part of growing up and she will get use to it.. she still a kid she still plays and does other things then cleaning and all but she will need to learn that is life.. it isnt fair and what she has to do it will be done.. Love Sam to death and she can be a pain at times.. but she is a smart and bright kid.. and likes to just learn things the hard way....  she is happy about the move but doesnt want to leave since of all her friends... which I know that is why the change in attitude since the move is getting closer.. Lord willing over time she will get her act back together since I'm sure she doesnt want to be grounded for the rest of her life (as Daddy will tell her)   Oh the joys of having kids....  but over all Samantha is doing good.....

Matthew:  He is doing alright... he is always busy with work and getting stuff together for the move.. not much to update about right now.. he is just himself

Me: I'm doing okay.. I have been having my ups and downs in emotions with all the stress of moving and life... I know I need to leave it all in Gods hands but it is just hard to do at times.. so much going on so little time its just rough right now....  and to top it all off.. I think I Totally re-injuried my bad knee that I had surgery on when I was a teenager I rain 1 1/2miles and pushes myself to do it and with doing that I think I may of repulled stuff in there.. eventually i'll try to get a doctors appt hopefully its just maybe sore.. but With my luck it will be worse then I hope.. I'll keep you all posted on that.... I have really been loving being able to run and do all my work outs daily.. but I think I pushed myself to hard to fast and did this to myself....  But God is Good and I just got to leave it all in his hands... There is always a reason for everything..  but over all i'm doing Okay...

Thank you to who ever read this all.. and thank you for reading and wanting to stay in touch with us.. we love and miss you all 

God Bless

I'm enjoying this stage :)

Alyssa: She is doing good.. getting smarter every day.. its just to bad she couldnt start school this Fall too she knows her shapes, colors some letters and numbers too I think when Ayme starts in August I may just start some school books with Alyssa so she will be more then ready NEXT school year in 2013.. she is doing good though

Ayme... She is doing good she is growing learning a lot lately.. she is super excited about school in August I keep telling her.. you still have 4mths til you start school... but she is super excited and she is just doing really well

Michelle: Well Michelle is doing better.. she did have her surgery on the 22nd of March.. all went super smoothly the doctors said it couldnt of gone any better then it did she healed up really well and goes back for her check up on the 20th of April but all in all she did great.. she still gets her sore throat here and there but its not been 2 weeks post yet... but she was back at school today so she gets 4 days in b4 their spring break she is a very happy girl now.. her voice is totally diffenent sounding with her tonsils out.. shall be interesting to hear what her speech teacher says tomorrow since 1st time back to her since b4 the surgery but all in all Michelle is doing great

Samantha: She is doing good.. the back talking has kicked in some again.. so we shall be working on that yet again... I know it will happen off and on her WHOLE growing up life but meh maybe get lucky and really kick it now and it wont be as bad when older.. so we shall see.. but Sam is doing good and doing really well in school.... We are looking to get her into the doctors next to take a peak at her tonsils since she has 1 that is HUGE like bigger then Michelle's huge and then the other one is tiny... so she maybe next to get the surgery done.. which we will get all done b4 out of the military at the end of this year.... but all in all she is doing good

Matthew: He is doing good.. he goes to the back doctor only 1x a month now which is nice on gas as well since gas is like 4.14 here and the 1 1/2 hr (autobaun which is 85-100mph) takes a lot of gas... but besides his back he is doing good.. he has started the paper work of departing from the military so the next 6mths he gets to do all that fun stuff and now though we look to be leaving 1st week in December instead of b4 Thanks giving like I wanted too :( But it is okay.. all happens for a reason and we will just get to spend 1 last Holiday with some amazing friends that are still here with us... but all in all he is doing good.

Me: I am doing alright... I have been having some issues with depresstion, and other mood issues.. I was just not myself and I was walking any wheres from 12 to 20miles a day since I just wanted to get away from stuff... I have done a change in my diet so I havent been as bad as I was.. but I still have some off days just not like how they were.. I went to get some blood work done to test some of my levels to see if anything is going on.. so hopefully by the end of this week or the begining of next week I will hear some news.. but we shall see.. but any ways.. i'm doing alright.. just staying busy with the kids and house and my friends.. but all in all i'm alright

Feb Family Update time

Hello Everyone.. Nothing really much new right now.. so this post should be a little shorter then normal.. sit back grab a coffee and enjoy the read...

Tristan.. He is doing good.. growing fast and learning more and more.. I see him to take after Sam with learning things since he just LOVES to draw and color (sad to say have walls to prove it.. Time to magic eraser them again) but He is doing really well with his drawing specially now since he only draws on the paper now.. but he is doing good..

Alyssa.. she is doing good. getting taller and taller.. she is already telling me what she wants for her birthday in 3mths.. she wants Barbies, barbie car, and she wants a BIG barbie House.. I told her we shall see what Mommy can find around here.. But the Barbie Kick has hit in she will be 4 come June.. but she is doing well

Ayme.. she is doing good.. she is a very bright and smart child.. she loves the learning games on the computer and she is always counting and trying to say her ABC's she is super excited about school this August and wants Michelle's teacher.. so we shall see if we can do that... but she is doing good..

Michelle.. she is doing Great.. she is doing awesome in school learning tons.. speech is going great for her you can hear a difference already which is great.. everyone at school just loves her it is so cute to see the other kids parents giving her hugs and telling me how sweet she is a such a good kid..

Samantha.. she is doing good.. she has her good days of no talking back and being a great kid and then those random days of talk back and feeling like I have a teenager already.. oh she shall be fun as a teen... The door slamming, stomping up the stairs,and screaming fit is a pain.. thankfully its not often.. but when it happens.. I just GO... Oh dear Lord... and then I go and nicely deal with her.. I think she hates it when I deal with her and i'm all nice and claim lol.. My reactions have gotten a lot better with her fits which is good... and thankfuly she has her room to go too when acting out... but all in all she is doing good...

Matthew... he is doing pretty good.. he has been seeing the back doctor almost every week to every other week for the past few months and last week the doctor was finally able to crack out that 1 spot that been causing him all those troubles.. and yesterday Matt was so happy he was finally able to run again.. and did the mile run in perfect passing PT time.. he came home with a huge smile since he can run again with NO pain... Matt is getting more excited too about getting out come end of the year.. he just cant wait to finally be by his family.. he has missed them all a ton since sad to say the kids and I over the last 10 years has seen them more then he has.. and he is just ready to be home and start all new with family around.. it will be nice... for sure for him.. specially for him to get to spend time with his younger brother....

Now to Me... I'm doing pretty good... Just keeping busy with the kids... working out with my ladies... and now slowly starting to deep clean the house to start getting rid of stuff for our move... We have so Muche stuff we really dont need.. so yep I see giving a lot of the stuff away to people that could maybe use them... But all in all i'm doing well..

well that is about it for all of us... I'll be update also about Michelle's Surgery in March's family update since her surgery is March 22nd prayers please and thank you...... have a blessed day everyone...

Ayme.. she is doing okay as well.. she also has croup like Alyssa.. so yep.. coughing and the fevers.. poor girl.. all she wants to do is lay around watch cartoons or play on the computer. but sides the sickness.. she is doing great.. she is so excited for school in August.. she just cant wait

Michelle.. she is doing good.. she is doing Great in school.. her teachers just love her to death her speech is slowly getting better.. of course its not an over night fix. But I can tell the difference some already... Michelle is going in for Surgery to get her tonsils removed in March.. the surgery date got changed to March 22nd and then she will be out of school for a whole week and NO PE for 2 weeks.. Michelle doesnt want to miss school.. But Lord willing all will go smoothly and she will do fine.. but all in all Michelle is doing great

Samantha... She just turned 8yrs old.. Dont know where the years have gone on by.. but she is doing great in school.. she is learning a lot and a head still in some of her classes.. but she is a smart kid.. acts a lot older then she is.. and the teachers/people always comment to me about it.. saying.. she doesnt act like she is 8.. she acts like a 13/14yr old.. which yea.. I can see that also for her drama queen she can throw at times.. Oh the joys of your kids growing up. but we love her and she is a keeper she just keeps us on our toes haha

Matthew... he is doing alright.. he been going to the back doctors basically every other week it has been helping a lot and It will take some time for it to get fully better (if it ever does) but he is doing good... He has decided that he is getting out of the Air Force.. so he is looking at jobs around PA and we will be moving there end of this Year... The kids are super excited and cant wait to finally be by family. Matt has been in going on 10yrs in April but with all the changes.. He has had enough and ready to be back home and start new.. so Many prayers please for him and us all that he can find a good job but he is very happy about his choice he has made to be getting out.. so prayers please

Me... I'm doing alright.. I'm always busy with the kids and just life stuff... I am very lucky to have 2 wonderful friends that live right by me now.. so I am able to go over to their houses to relax in the evenings... they will for sure help make this year go by better but of course.. will miss them when we move.. But that is apart of the military life.. make friends then move.. BUT the true GOOD TRUE friends you make are the ones that will stick around for ever :) any ways.. all in all i'm doing aright..

Any ways.. that is about it.... who every made it to the end reading.. thanks for reading... and if you read this... yes.. I know.. all you back home family and Friends.. will want to see us all when we are back.. so in 2013 we will have to Rent a hall or something for everyone to meet up with us.. since way to many loved ones that would want us to visit hehe... Any ways.. I'll keep you all update on us here in Germany.. But T Minus count down begins til we are back home in PA.. hopefully it will be in November some time :)

December 2011 Family Update

Hello Everyone.. I know I'm late on posting in for last Month But as it is for eveyone else.. December is a pretty busy month with everything going on with the holidays and kids winter break so it was kinda crazy here... But our Christmas was nice.. we got blessed with an extra 30 gifts from Matts work.. Matt put in the kids names on the Tree thinking that they would get 1 gift each.. But it seems more then 1 person took us in for wanting to gift for Christmas so we got blessed with a lot more gifts then we could ever imagine in total with the gifts we got everyone and all the gifts from Family we had just over 100 gifts.. which is totally insane.. But Still thanks to who ever it was that gave us those things... This past year of 2011.. We had a lot of stuff happen.. Good and Bad... but God hasnt left our side. and he is still there with us and going to make this year even better for us all.. God has special plans instore for us all.. and In his time things will get/be interesting.. But I am very Thankful that we have a God we can turn too and lay all our burdens on He knows whats next in our lives we dont.. any ways.. lets get to the updates on everyone now...

Tristan... he is getting HUGE.. he is 24lbs 32inches has just cut in a town of teeth including his 1yr molars.. he is 19mths old and a very smart Boy.. he is a happy boy.. and just growing up very fast on me But I am enjoying him even with his terrible 2s :) but he is just doing great

Alyssa.. she is doing good.. I was looking back on pictures of her from 3yrs ago when we 1st got here and she was only 10mths old Not walking yet and still so tiny.. and now she is 3 1/2 and gotten huge.. they just grow up way to fast.. b4 I know it she will be heading to school too.. that shall be interesting that day... she of course is still a Mama's girls (not by my choice lol) but she is doing great as well

Ayme.. Well Miss Ayme Just turned 5 on Dec 29th.. she is super excited about starting school come August she wanted to start when the girls went back to school after Winter break But i had to break her little heart and told her she still has to wait a while.. but she is a smart girl and just supper excited for school

Michelle.. she is doing well.. she is doing great in school which I'm very glad about.. we look to finally be at the end of the paper work like for the school to FINALLY start speech with her to help her out.. it only took ummm 4 1/2 mths... we will be making her a doctors appt though soon since we have been pointed out that her tonsils are 3x the size they should be so that maybe a part of her speech issues. so I will keep you all posted on that.. and prayers please for her.. she is 6 1/2yrs old.. and from the online research we have been doing.. they may want to do surgery but i wont get ahead in that just yet we will see what the doctors say 1st.. any ways.. she is doing just great though

Samantha... She is doing just Awesome.. she will be 8 soon and she sure doesnt act like it she acts like she should be turning 16.. she is a good kid and doing great in school.. she is advanced in most her classes but the teachers just love her.. she has grown into a lovely young lady.

Matt.. he is doing alright.. his back isnt as bad as it was but he still bothering him.. he sees the doctor 1x a week which the doctors is 1 1/2 hours away but it has been helping... he has a lot going on with the military and come April we will update on that all.. so prayers please.. and thank you

Me... I'm doing alright.. I seem to get in a depressed funk here and there.. and I know the weather doesnt help.. But I'm making do.. hopefully soon enough I can get back to my old ways and all... for this Year.. I want to try and loose some weight.. I have a goal I want to loose at last 40lbs this year.. BUT we shall really see.. I know when I get into those down funks I just dont want to do anythings.. but prayers please that I can get strong again and get back on track... Thank you

Any ways.. that is about it I believe.. I'll update again end of January/1st week in February..

Good Bless...

The Beckman Family :)
