How easily 3 months can slip by without a post!
I have missed the ole blog and have good intentions of keeping it better updated over the summer. Now there may be a sporaticness/unintentional hiatus through the end of June while I finish up my last class, but as for the rest of summer and the rest of the year...I have the best of intentions to get back in gear! :)
Me-one more class to go and I will have my Reading Endorsement for grades K-8 completed! 28 weeks into this pregnancy and trying to comprehend that in about 12 weeks there will be another little body in this family! Have I been doing any preparing yet...me? the procrastinator...no, but am starting to think about what needs to be done ;)
Luke-made it through kindergarten and currently likes to call himself a first grader :) He also discovered a LOVE of math towards the end of the year too! He will be attending a different class/school in the fall...we're all anxious to see how the transition goes and are hopeful that it will be a good fit for him.
Big Sis-broke her arm about 4 1/2 weeks ago. The cast came off last week and one would think from how she treats it that the arm is worse off than it was when it was broken. She definitely needs to be stretching it :) This incident (with its three weekday trips to St. Louis during the last three weeks of school) also just convinces me even more that these children are conspiring ways to make us have to use up all of our sick days too! ;) She also finished up her first couple months of preschool since turning 3.
Little Sis-is just as big and can do anything the older two can do...if it were up to her! She definitely has a mind of her own and is giving us a taste of what two will be like for her...opinionated and stubborn! :) She has watched and learned some of the best habits of both of the older ones and is gearing up to use them all...watch out mom & dad-3 more months until she's officially two until then she is practicing up plenty! ;)
Scott-is on the verge of the summer work schedule attack! It has already been mentioned that there is a possibility he may have to take a turn being out-of-state for at least a week. Not sure how that would go from my viewpoint, especially considering we'd be 8 months into this pregnancy at that point...maybe some "troops" would be willing to be called in or to take the rest of us in if this happens :)
Looking forward to getting the creative juices flowing again...I have missed writing here on regular basis and am hopeful that I can get back into the groove of it once again. Hopefully, writing all of those research papers and reading all of those research articles over the past year and a half have not sucked all of the creativity out of me! :)
Enjoy the new look of the blog too!
