Spring Break

I finally have a bit of time to write a blog post now that this week is spring break. Since I’ve started on FB, I’ve been able to post there more since it doesn’t really take any time, and I can post pics from my phone.

Our family has been so busy in the last couple of months. I have to say I am looking forward to school being over for the year. I love my students, but the paperwork and planning is killing me. I hope if I decide to go back next year, it will be at least a little easier since I have one year under my belt.

My kids will be starting swim team at the Coast Guard base next week. It should prove to be interesting. I’ve never seen competitive swimming for 5-year-olds, so it may be a spectacle. The weeks between now and the end of school will be a pain because there’s practice twice a week and “meets” on Saturday. I don’t think the meets start for a few week, though.

Here are a few pictures from a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe my kids are getting so..old. They don’t look like little ones in pictures any more! šŸ˜¦ Most of these were taken the day we went to sign the kids up on the base for swimming. There’s a nice lake area near the pool, so I took the opportunity for some long overdue pictures.

Kids being silly.

They could be bookends!

Honestly, I don’t know where she gets this.

Ok, that’s more like it. Thank you.

Here’s at our church’s Easter egg hunt. They were really too busy for pictures. There was candy to be had, after all. Binh wasn’t into having his picture taken at all this day.

Well, that’s about all I can muster for now. There’s lots of laundry to fold, so I’m off! Check in with me on fb if you’d like updates more often!

Home Sick

No, not homesick, but home sick. My kids are both sick today, so all of us had to stay home from school. I still had to go in early to my school and drop off plans for my sub (which meant dragging my little ones with me ), but most of the day I’ve spent cuddling, there there-ing, etc. Neither are just terrible, but I can tell they aren’t 100%. There was no fighting to speak of, so I know they are both in a weakened state!

I think Binh may be able to go back tomorrow, though he has a cough and a somewhat runny nose, but Ava took a little nap this afternoon and seemed pretty warm when I woke her up. She’s also really pale, which is so sad because she has her daddy’s fair skin anyway. So now she’s more like translucent! tee-hee.

I hate missing school. I feel like I’m playing hooky or something, but I also don’t want to send my kids back to school too soon and possibly infect others. What do the rest of you in the working (outside the home) world do?

I Bit the Bullet

Ouch. I finally bit the bullet and joined Facebook. I want to stay in touch with people, but this last semester has proven that finding time to blog just isn’t as easy as I’d hoped whenever I’m working. So, maybe fb will help out with that. I have to say, I still find it a bit creepy. I mean, it shows when you just go on and update any sort of thing, like when I edited it to read that I love the Red Sox or whatever. Weird, I’m just sayin’.

I will still post the majority of photo postingĀ and things of that nature on this blog, but if you’d like to be my friend on fb, just let me know. I warn you now, it’s no more exciting over there than it is here!
