Rolling through

Sunday was my Stepmom's birthday, and every night I remember to call her at about 10:00pm. When she is in bed most likely. So Happy Birthday Diane!

We are back to some resemblance of a schedule this week. The kids are sleeping well (except for Audrey joining us every night at some point, but at least she is sleeping) and knock on wood, Ashley has had a good week so far at school. Smiley faces everyday in her daily report home. Which basically means she hasn't been blurting out answers and has been raising her hand. I realize this is a basic concept, but for whatever reason, Ashley is having a hard time with this in her new school year. I (and her teacher) think she just wants to see what she can and cannot get away with. Unlucky for her, her first grade teacher is pretty strict with that sort of thing.

Ray unfortunately has a head cold or allergies or some sort of manifestation of what Ashley and Audrey had last week. So he is miserable, but functioning.

This getting back to a schedule is just in preparation for August where dance and cheerleading starts. Ashley and Audrey are both in dance this year, and Ashley will have cheerleading practice two nights a week in August, with games started in September for her to cheer at. I need to get some meals frozen this week in preparation for the craziness that is about to come.

We're just getting back on schedule too. It's amazing how much a little trip can throw life into disarray! Good thing it was totally worth it :)

School starts for us soon, so I'm sure we will be dealing with the same types of behaviors with Keven Jr. I'm not looking forward to it either...

Schedules are key, especially for the kids, I'm glad ours is back in full force.


But I miss Chicago dearly...
