Back to School

We are 2 days into the Back to School routine and things are running smoothly.  We’ve had a warm “welcome back” at the old school.  Max was SO excited on his first day!  His new schools supplies made him very happy.  He’s in class with kiddos that were in his preschool class and all welcomed [...]

The End of The Holiday Break

Here it is, the last day before we hit the grind again.  I’ve enjoyed the time off and have even had the opportunity to follow the wind a little.  The day after Christmas, I got in my little car and drove the few hours to my sister’s house.  I spent the night, visited with my [...]

Changes, Changes

If you’ve followed the blog and the show since the early Fall, then you know that this year has brought a lot of change, experimentation and indecision when it comes to schooling. For the last 8 years all my kids have been in the local, Catholic schools. Over the summer I had to make some [...]

Doing the Dance of the Children

There has been some serious dancing going on this week! I’m not sure how I forgot the crazy, busy way my life goes once school starts! I think I was still vacationing in La La Land and didn’t take the time to prepare my mind and home for what was coming. But, come it did [...]

The First Day of School

We’ve made it through the first couple of days of school. The boys jumped into their new school with no problems. They both know kids that are in their classes and that they see on the playground. I think it’ll be a good year for them. We are still working out some bugs with the [...]

Mommy of Many Show #44: Back to School

Tomorrow morning we wake up to a new school year! Where did the summer go?! Kateri, JJ and Mariah are all back at school. It’s time for routine and predictability, once again. I think I’m ready! We have some changes to where the kids will be going to school this year. I’m nervous and hopeful. [...]

Back to School

So, here we are at the end of the Christmas Break. The tree has been taken down and dragged outside (one of my wall sconces being dragged along with it ). The pine needles have been vacuumed up. The Christmas decor boxes have been repacked. JJ has headed back to the cold, snowy depths of [...]

A long-distance ER visit

This long-distance parenting is kind of tough. We got a call yesterday from JJ to let us know that he had been hurt during rugby practice. I know……,”rugby practice! Of course he got hurt”. So, we had to figure out the Dr. situation and what to do. We contacted our provider and found out that [...]

I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane………..

Well, here it is, the last thing on my list before going to bed. The alarm is set for 4:20 am and I’m ready for my trip. I’ll be going out to see Kateri first and then driving from there to see JJ. I will drive back and fly home. A little crazy but I [...]
