Life is good but busy. School is pretty much "off the hook" with kids behaving like I never dreamed possible. This is not a good thing. I would have never thought of acting the way that most of my 6th graders are acting. TCAP's are next week and Lord help me after that. When TCAP's are over, the kids usually think school is over so I expect behavior to get much worse. Good news is that there are only 29 days left of school...not that I'm counting. And on to summer, my favorite part of the year. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Today (Thurs) we went to Toys R Us to spend HG's birthday money and Carter's Christmas money. She ended up with Littlest Pet Shop things and Carter got a new DS game. They are in heaven right now playing with their new toys.
Carter is playing in a baseball tournament this weekend in Springfield. He has 5 games to play, 1 on Friday and 4 on Sat. It will definitely be a long day.
This break has gone by way too fast but I sure have enjoyed it.
Happy Birthday to my baby girl who will be 10 years old on March 25. I love you baby, you will ALWAYS be my little girl!!

The 6th graders at school have lost their minds. Well, I'm not sure that they really had any to begin with. They have spring fever way too early which has me scared to death for when spring actually gets here. Sometimes they are too much to control. There are some days when they put me in a really good mood and I leave school thinking how lucky I am to have such a great job. Then there are other days when I leave there with the mind-set of, "What was I thinking"... I am having way too many days of the later.
Baseball and Softball are kicking off. Tim has agreed to help coach HG's team. She is so excited to have him helping with her team. They both officially start practice this week. She will be having practice on Monday and Thursday with dance on Wed. so I figure Carter will have practice on Tuesday and Friday and then some in between. I'm sure we will be busy with that most nights of the week. Either way, now that Tim is working days he will be able to attend all of them even though he will be late for a few.
Carter started running a fever last night and has had one all day. Then he informed me this afternoon that 6 kids were absent on Friday and some of them had strep. Hopefully he will be feeling better soon and no one else will get it. I can't get him to the Dr. now until Monday to get him some antibiotics. I don't know why they don't call medicine in over the phone like they use to. It would be so much easier.
Anyway sorry for the "poor me" post. It was not intended to be that way, but I sure feel better being able to vent.
I was saying all of this to mean that I love the business of life. My kids and family are my life. I love the memories that are being made and the fun being had while doing it. We love baseball/softball season. We love to watch our kids in action. WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!!
