...general goings-on...

...apparently this is a monthly thing for me!!!  I hope to get back to blogging pretty regularly.  This summer has been busy...not really a fun kind of busy, but busy all the same.  I can't believe that we start back to school in a little more than a week...where have the last eight weeks gone?!?!?

We have made a couple of trips to Branson, MO to visit Silver Dollar City.  We are always pleased when we go there, the park is clean, their employees are friendly and it is relatively cheap to get away for a weekend.  It is the closest to the "Disney" feeling that we get here in the Midwest!!! We have made a few trips to our local pool, we don't go as often as I'd like, but I am working a LOT more this summer than last, so I will take the few trips that I can get!!!  Mike was working the day shift at the high school, but just this week, he went back to the night shift, which means, for us, the summer has just about come to an end!!!

Just last week, I officially accepted the position to help out my friend Little Miss M in her last year of preschool.  I am still waiting to hear the details on how many hours a day I will be working, it all hinges on the services she qualifies for.  I am excited for this next chapter in my "career".

I got the "welcome" letter from Little Man's first grade teacher today.  First grade.  I can't believe it.  He is doing so well this summer.  His meltdowns and tantrums have subsided.  Of course, it is not to say that he has not had any problems.  The biggest problem was that he cracked the back of his head during a tantrum.  Yeah, two staples.  That was some fun for Mommy.  The staples lasted a week, and getting them taken out seemed to be worse than having them put in (that is not saying much, because it was not my head that got the staples!!!).

...okay, so it has taken me ALL NIGHT to write this, and it has not amounted to much!!!  Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things, but in the meantime, I will be happy just taking things one day at a time.

Love to All.
