Yes I know I suck

I think the overall air quaility has got me down. Even though you would think spending this much time indoors would make me a lot more productive but, alas I think I got less done this year than last year.

More than not I think I spent more time thinking about all the stuff need done than really doing anything.

The kids are all VERY excited to be going back to school! Eli is starting 6th grade this year. It was very weird to do into his school and have a lot of the student be taller than Sean and I. I hate the idea of looking up to Eli's friends in the years to come. Middle school had so many negative memories for me. I hope that the next three years go smoothly for Eli.

Koda is in second grade this year. She could be more happy with the teacher she got or the kids in her class. She was placed with her best friend. (I am not sure if this is a good thing or not) She is still through the rough. She is excited to be getting older and more excited to wear new clothes. She has become such a sweet child. I cannot even express how amaze she is. She doesn't like to watch t.v. or sit around bored. She is ALWAYS doing something and begs to be right next to you into what ever you are doing.

Corbynn oh so not a baby any more. I can't believe I don't have a child that is not in full time school anymore. I feel like it is a blessing and a curse. I will miss having my little companion during my days at home. Even though those are numbered. She is the known area angry teacher but, I hope that Corbynn will excell with this kind of leadership. I also PRAY that she will have friends this year. Last year was very hard with out her making any great relationships. Maybe I didn't foster them enough. She had a rough summer with out sleep overs and play dates. While she watched her sister play and play and play. I hope that she learns that being a giving friend will come with more of an advantage than being a picky friend. I fear for her even though I know she will find a friend.  She is so much and caring but, yet lacks the ability to see past her own needs sometimes. She loves hiding and playing video games and enjoys being read to more than any of the other children. I am sad that she is growing up so fast.

My grandmother died this week after a long and wonderful journey. She had a great life and was very active in her community. So, we will be heading to Ogden, ut for her funeral this coming weekend. Not looking forward to it but it will be great to see the family.

There is my long over due checkup!
