Busy busy

We seem to have lots going on these days.

Alexis is in the thick of things with the musical. It is coming up next weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing her make her stage debut. (Its the high school musical---they're doing Annie.)

I've registered Maddy for kindergarten. She has her "preview" (formerly known as screening) on March 31st. I think she's ready. She keeps asking when she can go to the girls school.

Warmer weather has finally arrived. We're still having ups and downs, but at least the downs aren't so low. I love the fresh air. I even had the windows open one day last week.

I taught 3 days last week. Now I'm sick. I just had this awful feeling last week when I was teaching...I saw a bunch of snot nosed kids. So now I'm trying to get healthy again.

My eating is still going well. I think giving up sweets for Lent was one of the best choices I've made. It has not been all that hard at all...not even when I made a cake or otherwise. (I didnt even lick the spatula, lol.) I have a good mindset this time, and hoepfully with Lent being 6ish weeks, I'll have some better habits in place once Easter gets here. (Now I need to add in some exercise.)

Catch Up

Lets see.....

Since my last post, the biggest thing that happened was Maddy turning 5. Its very sad that my baby is now 5...kindergarten age. And speaking of kindergarten, she is signed up for the preview at the end of the month. Yes, its all becomming real. All 4 of my kids will be in school full time next year. :(

The girls were supposed to have their solo and ensemble contest last Saturday, but it was cancelled due to snow. I think it was a bit of a disappointment after all the work they've put in. But they didnt have school the Friday before, so I suppose it was for the best. They've now missed 8 days of school, and have 3 to make up over spring break.

I had conferences last night for all the girls. What can I say...I have good kids. Its nice to go in and hear good things, and have the other things we discuss just be minor. I'm so thankful my kids like school and really try hard to do their best. I dont have to push much. I'm anxious to see if Olivia changes next year. I'm not sure she puts 100% into it this year, but next year she will actually get letter grades, so I'm wondering if that wont make her do better. Time will tell....

Today is Mom's birthday. I'm just not sure how to feel about that. Two years ago, her oncologist told her she had 1-2 years to live. Had she not had such a desire to live and beat this, and seek out a second opinion, she wouldnt be here right now. So today is bittersweet. And not only that, but she had a CAT scan last week, and its clear of cancer all together. She has a blood clot, and now has to go on medicine most likely for the rest of her life, and it consists of giving herself a daily shot in the belly. Ugh! But its so much better than them finding cancer. I love her so much!
