Survival of the Fittest

Colton and Caden started school last week... ( doncha love my pix from the new camera.. I DO!)And we're so excited for how well they're both doing... Then Kyle started Jr. High yesterday... (this is him making fun of mommy) nice hugh?

and as long as he's with his buddy, he's loving life...
Then there's AJ and Mommy...
doing the "home schooling" thing.

AJ is LOVING life, maybe because he's getting away with murder!!!

This is "scrapping 101" ... as in - our new "writing curriculum" for the year So, I had him go pick out some scrapping supplies...

And then of course, here is his DARLING tutor... who took him "bowling" for PE today. Followed by starbucks and a trip to the library to do some "stuff."
And today was my first day of school with my students... SO I am EXHAUSTED!!!

But... I lOVE, LOVE, LOVE my class, so that's ok!

Except that today is also...

TONY's Birthday!!

yeah... we'll have to get to celebrating that this weekend... when we have a chance to come up for air because it's a 3 DAY WEEKEND!!!

Yahoooooooooo

By then, I'm hoping I'll be able to do more than just text my hubby a "happy b-day," don't be late for football," "no I don't want anything from the drive thru for dinner" message on his phone.

wow... that even sounds worse than it felt when we we're living it out today; but there are times when I'm thankful for the fact that he's not the "sensitive" type; because let me just say, if this was how my birthday went... there'd be trouble in paradise... followed by an ever-so-large shoe shopping spree (hmmm, maybe not a bad thing???)

But... life is good! Crazy.... but good!

I love the new camera. Did you get a canon rebel? I NEED a new camera too.

The boys look great! Homeschooling looks like fun. How do you do it, since you are at school?

You are amazing. Reading about home schooling and working... it makes me tired!!

Juliness said...

Those last lines made me laugh out loud! My husband neither wants or expects a big deal on his birthday. I made sure he knew early on that same principle Does Not Apply to my birthday. He's a great learner. :-p

Simply reading about your day made me tired so I hope you got a few minutes to yourself at some point.

Your boys are so handsome! Please send our birthday wishes to Mr T!

Glad to hear that you are surviving. Boy are you all busy! Beyond busy!! In fact, I am not sure that I get how you do it all. Super mom, I am thinking, super mom!!

Make sure to take some time for yourself and get some rest. After shoe shopping of course. :)

Sounds like they are getting back into school. It's hard those first few weeks. I think harder on me, cuz I have been bad and sleeping in really late
