Well, I just realized that it has been almost a year since I have posted anything on this blog! Sorry about that. Things here have been a little crazy the past year! Where to even start!

Well, Jakob turned 8 in May. He is doing wonderful! He completed 2nd grade with flying colors. He will be in the Gifted Program in 3rd grade. This will be a challenge for him and I hope that he is up for it!

Alexa had an awesome year in kindergarten. She is reading amazingly well! She turned 6 this month. She is anxiously waiting for 1st grade to begin. She is done with summer and wants to get back to school!

Emma was 4 this month. She completed her first year of preschool. She will start up again come September and will be going 5 mornings a week. She is really looking forward to that! She has enjoyed her brother and sister being home with her all day. It gives her someone to play with!

And for me, I have been in school full time the last year. I am happy to report that it is going wonderfully and I will be graduating August 2nd! It is exciting and scary all at the same time. I want to get to work, but scared to get there at the same time. I have missed so much of the kids lives this past year, and I really don't want to miss anymore. Only time will tell!

Adam is also doing well. He has been at Advocate for 2 years this month. His little side business is also keeping him busy. It has just been hard with me at school all the time. It will get easier soon!

I think that is about all for now. I will try and keep this a bit more current! Time will finally be my own soon, so it should be a little easier!

School for me

So, I have had 4 days of classes so far and I am feeling quite overwhelmed! This is going to be so time consuming and hard. I hope I can handle this! I want so badly to do well and I think with that attitude I will do well! Wish me luck!!!

New Haircut

I decided that it was time to cut the girls hair. It wasn't extremely long, but I am trying to grow their bangs out that thought that this might help. It is just above their shoulders and looks so cute! It makes them both look so much older! I will post pictures once I take a few!

Can you believe that Alexa started Kindergarten today? It just doesn't seem possible to me! She was so excited. The best part of her day was finally getting to ride the school bus. Nothing else mattered. She also had a great day and loved meeting all the kids in her class. Let's hope she also keeps up the enthusiasm!

2nd Grade

Jakob started 2nd grade today. It is so hard to believe that he is growing up so fast! He was so excited to get back to school and see the kids that were going to be in his class. He had a great first day! I only hope that this enthusiasm lasts the rest of his schooling years!!

I am pleased to announce that Emma is, for the most part, potty trained! It went a lot better than I thought it would. She wore underwear to bed last night and even woke up dry! This is very exciting news as we have been buying diapers/pull-ups for almost the last 7 and a half years. This expense is finally done. I'm sure we will find something else though.

It's official!!

I finally got my acceptance letter in the mail for school. I was so excited! Classed begin August 24th. I have ordered all my books, which is very expensive by the way, peed in a cup, ordered my background check and trying to get to a store to get my scrubs. So much to do and so little time to do it! I will be able to breath much easier once it is all done! Yeah!!!
