Days Off of School

The Boy is at the age that a day off a school is awesome.  The Girl is indifferent as she likes school and likes being at home. I am a teacher so a day off can go either way, a day off is great but must days off of school there are teacher meetings and professional development.  

Recently at school we had our Scantron testing.   The Boy really likes Scantron testing.  Maybe it is the online aspect of the testing but he that it was "Awesome!"  With it being the end of the quarter we have a Monday and Friday away from school.  

I asked the Boy about having and a four day weekend and this is what the 3rd grader said, "I don't know I think I want to go to school as my teacher is a lot of fun."  I was shocked.  Granted he still has a great time on days off but it was pretty cool that he wanted to be in school .

Another Year

I can't believe almost another year has passed in the Boy's life.  He will soon turn 8.  I remember to when he was little and can't believe how big he is.  Every time I look at him he is taller than the last time and that can be just a few seconds or a blink of an eye.

The last year has went so fast.  I just saw a picture from his last birthday and it amazes me how much bigger and older he is.

The Girl is growing just as fast as I believe she is running her preschool.  Even today right after I told her she couldn't take something to school she took it anyway and would have gotten away with it had she not taken it out of her bag in the car and dropped it.  I think I am going to put a Toy Detector at the door to check these children.

A couple of our good friends just had their second baby - "Fools!" We went to see the baby and they are tired as they are up often at night.  They commented on how I looked tired considering my kids are 4 and almost 8.  I know I will be complaining that they over sleep but for now I would like a few weekends of them sleeping until at least 8 am and not 6 or 6:30.  At some point the kids will either be able to get up and not bother my AGW and me, but until then tired I shall be as I watch them grow up too incredibly fast.
