Hello! Is anyone there??
I did not realize it has been almost FOUR months since I last blogged. Can you say busy?!?!
I feel like I'm forgetting something major almost every day but the kids are dropped off every morning, picked up every afternoon, fed, clothed and semi-cleaned.... so I'm good on that side of things. I show up to work every day too and I teach middle school. I guess you can say I'm winning??
Seriously though - life is busy. BUSY!
Nate did basketball at our local Y. It was comical but I'm glad it's over. Nate may play t-ball, we're not sure.
Lily will start softball soon and wants to do track too. She's active in her local Girl Scout chapter and let me tell you that cookies are a serious business. Getting orders and taking money is nothing compared to organizing the boxes, getting the right ones delivered, and so on. Craziness.
Like I said, and if you don't already know, I teach middle school art. I used to love it. Now, it's pure chaos 100% of the time. The jury is still out on if I still love it. Some days are better than others and that's the honest truth. I'm looking into grad programs for my second master's. Yes, second. I'm insane.
Doug is finally finished with wrestling, has this week off, and will start track on Monday. He's a coach at the local high school. He's also plays rugby, so he's busy.
On the home front - this crazy warm weather Missouri is having is making my plants do crazy things. It's hard to believe it's still February right now and I have a feeling it'll come back to hurt us and the crops. Pictures to come of some plants as they start to bloom. I really want to document more of my gardens as they go through the different seasons.
And now that my break is over, I'm off to figure out what I'm forgetting, clean up paint, pick up kids, go grocery shopping, cook dinner, clean the kitchen, help Lily with her two school projects (she's in 2nd grade and has two big projects in one week!) and entertain Nate. Wish me luck!
