Back to the Grind

Okay I've been a bad blogger, but I promise to try to be better. I have plenty of material. That's not the problem, the problem is I'm just running around crazy and my girls have sooo much homework. This is the third week of full school for them and I swear they each have at least one test everyday. They feel stressed and so do I. My 9 year old forgot some of her multiplication facts over the summer so I am trying to get her to review everyday, but she has so much other work to do she fights me. It's aggravating, but hey she's a tween. It's only going to get worse.

My 13 year old is quite the joiner this year. She volunteered to go in early every morning and help with the arrival of the nursery school kids. She tells me they cry and scream and try to escape. Some of them have elaborate plans. I find this all very amusing. She's gotten very attached to them in a short time and enjoys doing this. She has also joined the Theater Club, Social Studies Club and Science club. It's a busy schedule, but she seems to be doing okay so far. She's also in the process of applying to private high school's in the area. This is very stressful, but the public school in the city we live in is not an option. She currently goes to a small Catholic school and is hoping to continue to go to a small Catholic High School. She studies very hard and I hope she gets into the one she wants to attend. Tonight we will attend a high school fair so she can ask some more questions. We'll be visiting all the school she likes. It's going to be a busy fall.

Well I hope to post more about my crazy life. The girls really do keep me hopping.

I understand your not having a lot of time to blog! We all experience it from time to time. It is, however , a wonderful outlet and I think blogging makes me feel like im contributing atleast something from my tiny piece of the world :)

just wanted to say hi

I'm not sure I am looking forward to this age. At least I don't have to worry about it for a few years.

I am so glad I only had one girl. I would have gone berserk with more than one tween girl at a time.

I've been neglecting my blog too lately. Too much work and other stuff. I just remind myself that blogging is not work but something I do in my leisure time :)
