It's been over a YEAR since I last blogged, WOW! I can't believe it! There has been soooo much that's happened in the last year. Saira turned 8 and Ryan turned 11. He'll be 12 next month. Oh my, a pre teen!! I became another year older, 35. I've been to 2 retreats with my scrappy friends and to a NKOTBSB concert in June. OH MY! That was the BEST fun EVER!! This summer was really great. It was really busy at first, but then it slowed down which was great. Now we're all prepared for 3rd and 6th grade. My poor baby girl, she will be dealing with all that exit level tests, now called STAR tests, formally called TAKS. Surely she'll do just as well as her brother has the last 3 years, if not better. :) Our summer vacation is on a count down to being over... 4 more days.
I'm kind of glad that 6th grade stays with Elementary now. When I was in the 6th grade out in 29 Palms, California, it was in Elementary. Jr. High was only 7th and 8th. I think Ryan feels like he's ready to move on to Jr. High though. He keeps dissing the thought of having to stay in Elementary, "even though it's suppose to be Jr. High". That's what he's been saying all summer.
Both the kids have grown and matured alot this summer. My son has totally passed me up in height. I've known he has, but a few months ago it totally hit me that he's out grown me. :( Saira, her and I practically wear the same size shoe. Umm, you read above that she's only 8. What the heck?!?
OH OH!!! One other exciting, bitter sweet thing is that Ryan will be playing Jr. High football. Aww, I've looked forward to this every since he was born, but I don't think I'm ready for my baby boy to play with the big kids. ;)
Ok, I promise to be back soon and blog again. I won't stay away for another year. LOL!!!
