it seems like this school year will never end! I have 3 very excited kids that are thrilled at the nearing journey they will take. We have 8 more mornings of getting up for school and attempts to learn a couple more things. I am pretty sure they are all tuned out though at this point. just killing time for now.
We celebrated Trevor and Elise turning 7 over the weekend. With all the May/June craziness we lumped them together with cousin Caleb (turned 12 June 1) and Uncle Cory (younger then me!). Presents were opened, bouncing on the trampoline with cousins and watching the bigger people ride around on Michaels new(but yet quite old) "moped/scooter/2 wheeled transportation". Pretty funny how something like that brings everyone out to give it a try. If gas keeps on climbing we will be doing rock/paper/scissor to see who has to drive it to work!
They are thrilled to be creeping up on 7 years old. I was advised they will still need a birthday cake on their birthday. What fun to be so young and really only worry about whether you will have cake or not. What a shame you don't know how lucky you are until it is too late!
Oh yeah, 11 days till we fly off and have a total kid vacation... I am glad we both have some time off afterwards to recover at home. Disneyland will be a blast I am sure, neither Michael or I have been in so long it will be like a brand new experience. Now if we could just convince Michael that the Goofy character breakfast on Fathers day is solely in his honor. Poor guy has to get up way to early then deal with larger then life cartoon characters hassling him on his "special" day.

I am always looking for another cup of coffee, frequently dream of sunny days, and on occasion I might drink too much wine. I love sarcasm and appreciate it when it is well played. After 12 years my husband still doesn't get my sense of humor. Too dry for him I guess, perhaps he just confuses it with bitchiness.
I am a thirty-something mom of 8 year old boy/girl twins and a 10 year old daughter.
I crave order but have little of it. Evidently owning books about order does not translate into actual order. Chaos seems to live in our home with us.
I work as a nurse and when I am not working I am trying to be a good Mom and Wife. Some days that is a big job!
Man that felt a little like writing a personal ad!
Megan--the oldest and if you ask her the wise old owl of the family. Watches out for her siblings and overly conservative wanting to save, save, save...not like me there!
Elise- Always on the run. A party everywhere she goes! You want fun, call her! She has two modes, on and off. When she crashes she is out!
Trevor- If any of my kids grow up to be a mad scientist it will be him! I think out of all of my kids he is the least like me, but out of all my kids he might love me the most! Maybe later we will worry about how much he loves his Mom, right now I just enjoy it.
