It's hard to believe! I was just saying yesterday that they should be something more like 4 and 6. It seems impossible that they are really 6 and 8.
Tomorrow is our last day, and then I will have a 1st and 3rd grader! 3rd grade is half way through elementary school! Emily will be one of the older kids now, and not the younger. How can that be possible????
I'm looking forward to Summer, too! We have our Six Flags passes and pool passes all ready to go!View Thread
I agree with making out a menu. It takes a lot of pressure off on busy days to know what is for dinner and know that you have everything you need.
As the weather warms up, I find myself doing less cooking. We eat more raw fresh fruits and veggies. I usually make a nice salad one night and cut up all my veggies for the week. It's so nice to just pull a Tupperware container out with pre-sliced fruits and veggies ready to go. We also tend to eat sandwiches more often -- sliced turkey breast/chicken, ham, cheese, etc.View Thread
Lots of yard work done here, too. We put down some sod on part of the hill that had been torn up from all the work done last year. It's much harder to lay sod than I thought. It will be worth it, as long as most of it takes.
I also weeded through the flower beds, planted flowers, and put down mulch. It's looking really good in the front. I need to work on the back later this week.
The good news is that I'm not sore. I guess working out has paid off a bit!View Thread
I can't believe it's almost time for Elizabeth to graduate Kindergarten. I don't know what I'm going to do next year with both girls gone all day long. It's going to be a big transition for me, that's for sure.
At school, they have Kindergarten graduation with caps and diplomas. I'm going to have a small graduation party/picnic for her on Memorial day, with just siblings and grandparents. Emily is really excited to help me plan it.
Do you do anything special for Kindergarten graduation?View Thread
It's good to hear from you. I'm sorry things are not going so well right now. You and your family are in our thoughts. This isn't your fault, and you didn't do anything wrong. Keep repeating that to yourself, even if you don't totally believe it at first. It will eventually sink in.
I thought having girls, I would get to avoid all the bug/animal type stuff. Nope. There was a half-dead worm on the driveway and Elizabeth goes right over to it to pick it up and examine it. Look Mommy! Uh, no thanks. Although, on the positive side, she has become our official bug killer when DH isn't home.
Baby bunnies I'd be happy to see. Dead worms, not so much...View Thread
