Adam is still in marine boot camp in South Carolina.
Jeff has returned to Texas from Afghanistan.We needed a few days warning plus 21 hours driving time to welcome him home, but we were only told a little over a day before he arrived! So we were not there. He has not responded to my welcome home e-mail or the book and letter I sent a few weeks ago because I didn't know when he'd be home.
Tyler is at Job Corp in Kentucky.
Jasmine's schedule has changed once again.
Jessica is considering leading a mission team to Ireland this summer and then going active duty military.
Lots of changes.
The kind that come from children growing up and going out into the world.
They are ready.
I'm not sure I am.
|Our last Sunday together.|
|Tyler, Kayla and I went to Monster University. Third time for me (at the full price theater still!), second time for Tyler and first time for Kayla.|
|Jessica and I took Tyler to the airport Tuesday morning.|
We had Jasmine's IEP meeting today. Probably not a good time for it with Ty leaving yesterday. And talking about how special my Jazzy is. We (Jasmine was in the meeting with me for the first time) both lost control and someone handed us paper towel to dry it up. I wanted to explain about Ty, but every time I started to, my eyes welled up and I was a mess! BUT, Jasmine is back in resource math and intensive math. I really like the regular math teacher, but like they said, "Let's not set her up for failure." Um, yeah. I think I mentioned that a time or two. She will retain the same civics and language arts teachers but at different times. AND, she still has advanced band. It is a little bit of a concern because the resource math class is already overfull. But still, she's back where she needs to be.
Jessica is still working out her future plans, and I'll keep you updated on that. She got the blue screen of death on the laptop computer I got her for her 21st birthday, but I'd put a two year warranty on it so they will fix it. But she'll be without it for 16 days! She also lost the notes for a book series she and I have been talking about. So we'll start over on that.
Speaking of books--they are here!!
|These boxes arrived around 4:00 this afternoon.|
|Travis is so excited about my new book that he had to lick Jasmine's face!|
Tyndale liked another project I proposed to them, and I'll let you know more about that later. I'm just glad to have a project again.
It's crazy here and things are changing so fast, but we will do fine. In fact, I'm really excited about Jasmine's year because now she has the classes she needs, and she is in jazz and hip hop after sitting out dance for a year. She loves the new instructors (both African American males), and they both have tons of energy and love to dance. She's only been to jazz once and hip hop twice but she really enjoyed them. They were pretty fast paced and intense. Maybe they'll help her work off some stress! She also has advanced band which thankfully only meets one day after school and they only play at 3 or 4 football games. So I think she has just the right amount of activities to keep her stimulated, but not overwhelmed.
How are all you doing now that everyone is back in school and activities have started?
