Three weeks into student teaching with 12 more to go. We may just survive this semester. Mondays I get home around 8 pm since I go to class from school. I don't see the little ones except for when I am walking out the door to head to my school. Tuesday is dance for Larissa and Anthony and Thursday is dance for Emma. Two assignments are due on Friday morning at 8 am when I am in class so they have to be done on Thursday. Another assignment is due by Saturday at 10 am. I have one big assignment due on Monday. About every two weeks a big assignment is due. I almost forgot to apply for graduation. That has to be turned in on Monday. I will be in class so my dear husband has to do it for me. One of those ooops moments!
Of course, I have my normal daughter, wife and mother duties as well. The kids went a few days picking out their own outfits when I realized that I needed to make more time for laundry!
On a positive note, I made reservations for DisneyWorld this summer. We will be there the first week of June. It was supposed to be an adoption celebration but I am doubtful that all of our adoptions will be complete at that time.
Monday we meet with Larissa's Child Study team to determine how to help her. She is really struggling. Larissa and Anthony share some of the same learning disabilities thanks to genetics and mom making bad choices about drinking during her pregnancy. The kids didn't chose to have these challenges, they are living with the results of their mom's choices.
Michelle is having a hard time making positive choices for herself. She is having a boring weekend since she gave her teacher such a hard time all week. She heard me on the phone with Disney this morning making reservations and asked me about it. Disney is actually a sore subject for her, her last adoptive home promised to take her to DisneyWorld. At least this will be a promise fulfilled.
I did take some time to complete a painting project....
So, I am curious, what is everyone else up to and who is still reading my neglected blog?
