Exercise

I need to exercise. And in a bad way.

But what to do? I hate exercising. Nothing is fun. I'm not a runner. I can walk but it's boring. I need a video, I think.

It's been a while

I can't believe how long it's been since I've last blogged. This summer has just flown by.

As the kids get older, the activities seem to pile up. With three of them - it's nonstop.

Olivia has started pre-k. I'm so excited to have all the kids at one school this year! Not to mention the $500 a month I'm saving in daycare! :) She fit right in and the teacher told me yesterday, she's the best behaved in the class. She's often the line leader or project leader because, as the teacher put it, "She's a leader and the kids model her behavior." I'm so proud of her. I think it has a ton to do with her being the youngest of three, and she tries so hard to keep up and do the things the older kids do.

Yesteday, she had a pre-k physical and not only had to get four shots, but also a TB skin test and a finger prick. It was horrible for her and me.

Abbe Mae is doing well. She's been studying in school and focusing on spelling and reading. I got her progress report yesterday and she's doing okay, but needs improvement in certain things. Specifically, turning in her home work. She's at 5 out of 8. She's a mess.

Tyler is also a star student. He's in 5th grade. Quick story - yesterday I took the day off to take Olivia to the doctor so I had lunch with each of the kids (which meant three trips to the school but that's another post). While sitting in the cafeteria waiting for Tyler, there were other 5ht grade kids in there. One of the little boys we know from Boy Scouts, "R", was at the table next to me. He didn't realize I was there as he called for one of his buddy's down the way and proceeded to FLIP him off. I couldn't believe it. I told him I was telling his mom. And I will.

Jason bought a Harley Davidson. I'll post on that later.

Me, just working. This job and role is taking up way more time than I ever expected. Very late nights, meetings all the time, offsite all the time, it's a little more than I bargined for. I love my family and my job - just need the balance. It's hard!

Got to go know, taking the kids to get them a volleyball set for our party tonight.
