I know that I haven't really gone anywhere, but these last few weeks have just been too busy to spend much time on my blog.
There are times as a mom, when you really do need to put the needs of your children first..
Yesterday was the last day of the 2nd semester for oldest daughter. This year she did a mixture of public school and online school. I am so grateful she was able to do this program. She is one of those kids that doesn't thrive in the regular school enviroment, so having this option was a Godsend. She had to have all of her assignments done by midnight last night. She was cutting it close, with the last one submitted around 11 p.m. This morning, we got her final grades. She earned 1 A and 3 Bs!!! I am so excited and proud of her, and it makes all the time I spent homeschooling worth it.
Kara had her final check up with the Orthopedist on Monday. Unfortunately Monday is one of the busiest days in the office, and we had to wait over an hour to be called back, and then another 20 minutes in the room. We did, however, get great news. She is looking great, and released from his care. She no longer needs physical therapy. He said she might still be a little sore for the next few weeks, but should be 100% by her birthday. She said she feels pretty good now, and did dance class this week without her boot. (good thing too, her recital is in 9 days!!)
I feel the garage sale last weekend was a success. We only opened on Thursday and Friday. I did not have any big items to put out this year. I made $100 just putting out smaller items that were already in storage boxes. I could have potentially made a lot more had I had more time to really get ready, but this year that was not to be. I spent just a few hours preparing, so I am very happy with the results. My mom is visiting this summer, and will help me start preparing much earlier for next year.
Today is our first real day of summer vacation for everyone. We can now do FUN things and blog about them again. What are we going to do first?! We have a party to plan, a recital to dance in, Father's Day, 4th of July, and so much more.. Kyle will be creating more recipes with Cooking with Kyle, Kara has more crafts to make. I too have so many ideas and projects. It's time again to Party On!!
