I am Thankful

I am Thankful that his eyes are perfect.

I am Thankful that she is a typical 7 year old second grader.

I am Thankful that they have the best Daddy in the world, and that he is my soul mate.

Dear Lord…I am So Thankful!!

Kindergarten & General Rambling

Don’t stop blogging, because if you do…you stop taking as many pictures! 

Our first day of Kindergarten came in late August…. We are now Angry Birds fans.  I told my friend Andy that I did not want to download the app, I just knew I would be addicted!  Guess what??? I am. 

The Cutie Bug LOVES Kindergarten by the way.  He scares me, his math is better than his 2nd grade sister’s is. 

I have decided that since our school district has taken implemented 4 furlough days this year without an explanation as to when the children actually make up the missed days of school for their education (run on sentence, sorry), that I will be adding homeschool doses to my kids education as I can on Saturdays and during the summer.  If I come up with anything exciting I will share it with you. 

Little known fact for the day year.  I have a teaching degree, but did not choose to use it as my career. 

Had enough general rambling yet?? I have. 

Just a note in case anyone is actually reading…. I spend way too much time on twitter now, so if you are actually looking for me you can find me here: @coloradomommy

Wordless Wednesday ~Because I Figured it Was Time

Well, I figured I had better put up a blog post, just so you all know I am o.k.  Someone get a big vacuum and suck me back out of Twitter, because that is where I have been…  I have no balance, I apologize for that.  I want to work my way back to you all, I miss my blogging, and my bloggers! 

So please don’t worry, I will be back soon.  I will also answer anyone via email that is worried. 

Hugs to you all!!!

Thank you Children’s Place for the awesome “Hoodie” Sweatshirt that my daughter loves so much!!

So the quotes for this week are on Balance, may I be able to follow them!

A Day For Quotes ~Beginnings

Happy New Year everyone! The New Year is always a great time to think about what you want to to better, or more of. A time for new beginnings, so that is the theme of my quotes today. May you all have a wonderful 2011!
