Then blogger decided they would change their layout. I hate change. Every time Facebook changes something I get angry and threaten to leave... but of course I don't because then I would have no adult conversation, ever! (Sad, I know.) So now blogger has changed their layout and I keep logging on, looking at it, and logging back off again. Change makes me tired. LOL So here I am yelling at blogger for taking me out of my comfort zone, knowing full well that in a month or so I won't even remember what the old layout looked like. Whatever! LOL
Anyway, all is well here. My mom and I have been busy shopping for two very special birthday kids who have birthdays very soon and then my printer died so I got a new one today. I really like it so far! I can print from my phone! Neat-o! (I'm easily impressed, I know.) I cleaned out Kennedy's closet and moved out clothes that are too small to put into Kellsey's closet which means I now need to go through her clothes and get out the ones that are too small and pass them on to other people. Yet both girls still have more clothes than they know what to do with... how does that happen?!
We are on the countdown to the end of the school year! I am SO excited! I love summer and lazy days and not having to get up and go-go-go! Of course, around here, this also means that it's IEP time for Kennedy and Kellsey. We had Kellsey's kindergarten eval today. She will not be going to school with Kameron, Kennedy and Keeghan because she needs a little more help than their school can offer her, so I got to see a whole new school and meet a whole new team today. They were all very nice and spent lots of time going over Kellsey's needs, allergy restrictions, and stuff like that. Even though she is not where Kennedy was academically when she started kindergarten, they said that Kellsey will spend most of her time in the regular kindergarten classroom (with a 1-1 aide of course). I'm just in awe how this district is run. I'll know more after her official IEP meeting in a few weeks, but I am hopeful for Kellsey's kindergarten year and excited about the team she will have working with her. She showed off her true attitude and sassiness today as she bossed them all around and showed them who's in charge. HA! Kennedy's IEP for 2nd grade is also coming up very soon. Her year will look a lot like this year I'm told, which is fine by me. They have been thrilled with the progress she has made this year... I think they said she has gone up 8 reading levels?? Something like that. It's amazing! She has just blossomed this year. I'll post more about both girls after their IEP meetings.
Kassidy has 3 more soccer games and Kennedy has 1 dance convention (tomorrow) and 2 more competitions and then both activities will wind down. Kennedy will still dance through the summer, but not quite as much as she has been lately. Keeghan's trying to decide if he wants to try out for the competition team next year or not. I think he would do great, but we'll see! Kameron has chosen not to go back to Tae Kwon Do (he took a break while he was in his school play) so instead he has decided to do a one week intensive drama camp at a local church here in June. It's led by semi-professional actors and teaches the kids a lot of the different techniques of acting. I think Kam has been bitten by the acting bug. ;o)
Frank is doing ok in Afghanistan... he's been working long hours and is now working nights so we keep missing each other... he is working when I'm awake and I'm sleeping by the time he gets off work. I do not like this schedule one bit! Hopefully it won't last long! Speaking of deployment, remember my donut?? It started all red and now look...
It's getting greener and greener!!
In July Frank will be home for R&R and we will head to California for some MUCH needed R&R!! We can't wait!! Bring on the sunshine... and the beach... and Disney... and In-N-Out! Oh yeah, we are California dreamin'! :)
More later... and I promise, I won't take a week to update next time! ;)
