I know I haven't updated in a while, I have been busy with the end of school year.
I burned my foot in April (2nd degree) which set me back a bit, I also had surgery the first week in May and recovery wasn't as quick as I expected.
My oldest daughter graduated with high honors from High School the end of June...talk about bittersweet.
I am SOOO proud of her, and at the same time it forces one to recognize how your *baby* has grown into a mature young lady. They grow up so fast.
She's on to college in the Fall.
My oldest son is working this Summer and really coming along on playing the Bass guitar, he taught himself how to play the Star Spangled Banner,pretty cool.
He's matured a lot the past few months and I'm really proud of the course load he's decided to take on for Junior Year, Honors English and Social Studies. It should prove quite challenging since he has work, and fencing added to the mix.
My 3rd prodigy ended the year with High Honors as well, no surprise really, he is exceptionally gifted, but an A+ in 6th grade band AND 7th grade band? AMAZING.
I always knew he was talented, but the trombone??? WHO KNEW???
He's spending his summer annoying his siblings and tormenting his parents, typical 12 year old behavior :o)
As for my 10 and 6 year old, they are already looking forward to September, can you believe it?
Their Summer is filled with playing in the pool and with the dogs, occasionally playing with the dogs in the pool.
My 4 year old is anxiously awaiting pre-K. He's happy and excited, I'm a nervous wreck. What will I do without him? He's so entertaining, and my poor baby will be all alone.
So that's my update, I haven't had much time to create anything super wonderful. Hopefully soon I will get that bug again and start hooking.
Remember- well behaved women rarely make history.
and as John Burroughs said-
"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see."
Make it a GREAT day.
