End of Year Festivities

From Each Day….

End of the school year is always so busy. With sports and classes ending and everyone trying to fit in parties I felt like we were chasing our tales and running everywhere.

Sophia was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.  Very proud of her and her buds. They work hard and deserve it.

Carter then had his award ceremony for 2nd grade…..He says to me the night before…”Mom, I need to wear a tie to school tomorrow.”  OK, not a problem but what I was really thinking, it is going to be a 100 degrees tomorrow and your going to SWEAT your butt off. I didn’t want to discourage him though. I think he looks so handsome.  Although the first shirt  he wanted to wear was not quite right, we had to have a chat about patterns and stripes and what not to wear.

Then in the middle of this mix I had a birthday.  Sophia made me her chocolate cake from scratch again. I am telling you that is one good chocolate cake!

From Each Day….

Lovely face she has there don’t you think?

Then Sophia had her “graduation” ceremony form 8th grade. I am still processing this whole idea of my having a high schooler.

Megan is such a goof.

Sam for some reason ended up with nothing. Still trying to figure out how that worked.

Interesting times ahead for us…I hope I survive it.

The end is near…

School is almost over. This is the last week. I am kind of looking forward to it, kinda. This will be the first summer that I have worked and cannot have the kids with me at work.  I have stressed about what they are going to do for the summer. Will I be able keep them from getting bored and killing each other while I am gone?

I am the only one at work who can do my job right now. The person who worked with me  quit 2 weeks ago and I have not yet filled her position. She was originally to retire in January but she decided to stay. She was not happy and I knew she was going to quit again and she did. I wish she would have done it in January so I would have more time to train someone. Now I have vacation time coming up and no one to cover my time. It will work out. I know it will. I just wish I knew I had more time to find the right person. Someone with a great attitude and self driven. Needless to say I am stressing out about this.

I was going through my photos trying to find something to put in the blog and I came across these….

Sir Poops Alot was our pet hamster. He was an awesome little hamster as far as hamsters go.  But Poops succumbed to diabetes, we think.  Burying a hamster in Michigan in the winter is a little bit of a challenge.

Sam brought us all to tears with his comments. He is my tender hearted little one.

Thanks for visiting….
