What an insane last year. I'm so glad that it's over. And am nervous for another year of unknowns. But will try to stay very positive. Right now I'm trying to figure out if I should continue school or take a semester off. I'm really close to being done, but these last several months have been very difficult. Most of last year was spent with one child being home sick, hospital stays, surgeries and an overwhelming feeling of what to do. I'm in the process of doing the pros and cons in returning to school or staying home. Courtney wants to take a lot more dance, the boys are starting basketball, and the girls want to do swimming lessons. Yes, even in the winter they have them. I'm sure today's blog will help me decide on what I should do. Just writing something down will help. Anyway now on to my incredible children and what they have been up to.

Everyone had a great Christmas,winter break and New Year's. We haven't been to see a doctor for several weeks now!! Makes me very happy!

The kids are still plugging along at school. Going back was really hard for all of them. They did really nothing over the break that they didn't want to, minus chorus or course. We were very lazy, and didn't feel guilty about it. This is just a quick update. So I hope all your holiday season was enjoyable.

Have a great day!

  1. I teach grad level courses, have for years, and a lot of my students are parents. If they feel like taking a term off I encourage them to. You can always come back to school but you don't get do-overs with your children. You have been working really hard and maybe one term off (not that it's really time off with all you have on your plate) might re-energize you.

  2. You're so good to keep up with this blog for people like me who wonder how your family is doing.
    Hope 2012 is better than 2011 was for you guys.
    Much Love from Colorado.
