I wish I had more to report. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending how you look at it) we are in our typical end of the school year pattern. I am wrapping up with school so that means end of the year projects, reports, finals, and many, many graduations to attend. This year I am making the effort to attend every one. I get a little nervous to go. It's not like I can hang out with the kids, but in many cases I don't know the adults either. Regardless, I am going! I hit two yesterday. Wow have things changed since I graduated. They are more of a production: huge photo spreads, video slide shows, unique food spreads, etc. Gone are the days of the cheese whiz & olive sandwich followed by your basic graduation cake.
Ryan had his last soccer game today. On Tuesday baseball begins. He has an awesome coach so he is pumped. After school is out he will also tackle golf. I also just signed the girls up for gymnastics. Now, some of you may read this and think, "why so many activities you stupid mother. You are the one who will have to drag them everywhere." That is the point! I have my summers off to be a full-time-run-myself-ragged mother! So be it that all the kids are in different things. I am trying to foster each own's skills as well as independence from one another. Will it be crazy? Sure. Am I looking forward to it? You're darn right.
Kate is now going around reminding us every few minutes that her birthday is coming up. It is on June 4. I am beginning to fully understand how obnoxious I was growing up in regard to my own birthday. She (like I did) keeps asking if I have her presents yet, if she can send out party invites, what I am getting her, if she can have a puppy, and anything else related to her big day.
I for one am counting the days until our Florida trip. The kids are talking about it a lot too. They have way more memories of our last trip that I imagined. I just can't wait! I could blog daily about it, but I won't.
Wow.......for someone who had nothing to report, I sure babbled quite a bit!
