Kids just wanna have fun !



I was home alone one afternoon and in one of those "reminiscing the old days" mood.  I can't help but miss my kids when they were still little and they love to hang out with us at home, play and have fun.  They are all grown up now and busy with school, friends and a lot of things. I barely see them during the week which makes me really sad. 


I am so glad I have all these memories saved.  Every now and then, I look at these photos,  smile and laugh at some of the funny shots I took.


Oh kids .. where did the time go ?

















The laughters and the giggling were music to my ears.



Who drinks coffee on the pool ??




Cottonball trying to figure out how he can take a dip on the pool.







After playing in the pool, they decided to show off their basketball skills. Logan is 6'4" tall and is a basketball star in his school.

 My daughter will not let this opportunity go to show off her basketball skills. 





 I didn't have a lot of pictures when I was growing up, so I make sure to take lots of pictures of my kids. I hope that someday when the kids are older they will enjoy these photos I neatly organized and saved for them. 

After enjoying hours looking at all these photos, I am over my reminiscing-the-old days mood. I had to go back to working on our taxes as the deadline is coming soon.



I am a certified tax preparer and I wish I found this website fastforwardacademy.com when I took my certified tax preparer license exams. There is a new IRS rules that require all paid preparers to have Preparer Tax ID number to prepare tax returns for compensation. In addition, the IRS requires a competency exam for all paid tax return preparers who are not attorneys, CPA or enrolled agents. The new IRS tax preparer exam will cover the 1040 series of tax returns and information from the small business schedules. To prepare tax returns you must pass the exam and to pass you need Fast Forward Academy. I need to check  the special enrollment examination to see what I need to do to be an enrolled agent.




An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before any office of the Internal Revenue Service.  An enrolled agent (EA) does not need a college degree; rather they must demonstrate special competence in tax matters by passing all three parts of the IRS Special Enrollment Examination.

    1. I can't believe our kids are growing so fast. You have many many years before they go on their own, mine is getting closer and closer.

  5. ah, the power of photographs:) i enjoyed viewing each one that you shared, buddy. it truly is amazing how fast kids grow. it's like, you blink your eyes and they go from being helpless, tiny infants to happy, hyperactive toddlers .. then blink again, and next thing you know, they are teenagers, full of life and energy. blink once more, and they've flown off to college! time is just nuts. it waits for no one. i was just thinking that our teyla will probably be overwhelmed by the sheer number of photos her mommy has shot of her, since Day 1:) anyway, awesome job, buddy, of drawing the attention of your readers by talking about something interesting to begin with - old, touching photos of your kids - before launching into a not so popular (specially at this time of the year) topic: taxes. that is actually a law of journalism, bud- seize the attention of your readers in the first few sentence (or paragraphs), no matter what it takes, and they will stick with you to the very end:) you definitely drew my attention with this one. i enjoyed this totally. thanks, buddy.

  7. Good luck with filing taxes.

    I know what you mean about photos. I love to look at my children's photos and so do they! I am so glad they came up with digital photos. It makes it all so much easier and less costly; not to mention the instant gratification. lol
