Tiny Triumphs 5!

WOW! What a week it has been here! Busy, busy, busy were the words of the week. I love it but things have been slipping, like the cleaning. I am hoping to get a better feel of how things are working now that I I have been in school for over a month.

1. I took a Sociology test last week and I kicked it's butt! I was really worried about it because I did not feel like I knew anything. But I was wrong, I got a 97%! I also got a 97% on my Maths test! I am kicking school butt!!!

2. We registered Kellen for Junior High on Thursday night! Where is the time going? I am not sure that I am ready to be the parent of a Jr. High student. I guess I don't really have any choice but I am sure that I am not that old yet.

3. Ethan is loving his guitar! He is learning that practicing is no fun but he still does it. Jared and I have to watch him because he would rather play around than practice what his teacher wants him to. He can play For He's A Jolly Good Fellow!

4. Jared is almost done with his Accounting class. I think that he has like two weeks left. Then he is onto Speech. He is really nervous but I know he will do fine.

I am updating the blog while at the library at school. Why? Well, I am putting off studying for a Sociology test. I think I have it down but I am worried. So if I don't take my mind off of it I will go nuts. But you already are nuts you say! Well, that is true but I don't want to turn into the crazy lady who roams the halls of this University with drool coming out of the sides of my mouth and moaning instead of talking. Kind of a funny picture if you ask me. Ohhhh, add in that I will be wearing my pajamas when that is going on and the picture is complete! So I guess I will get on with this so I can continue reading.

1. I am getting an A in Maths! That is a surprise to me and I am sure all who know me. Maths is not my strong suit but I am getting it this time. I am not sure if it is my age or what but I actually like going to Maths class. By the way I call it Maths class because there is more than one Math problem! So I go to Maths class!

2. Kellen gets to register for Junior High next week! Where in the heck has the time gone? He should still be about five. Rude how they grow up and in turn make me old.

3. Ethan is really a big goof. Lately he has been trying to turn everything into a joke. He is not always successful but he tries.

4. The boys are planning a BIG weekend of playing games and watching movies. I think we are even going to buy a new game to play. We were thinking Settlers of Catan. I will let you know how it goes!

Have a great week! Now, I will go back to studying!


Tiny Triumpsh 3!

I know that I have been slacking a bit on the blog. I just have one word as to why SCHOOL. I am still trying to figure out a balance between home and school. It is not as easy as I planned on it being. It does not help that I freak out over every little thing that I have to do for school. I hate to get even one wrong. Boy, that is a change from high school. So far I am getting A's but it is only three weeks in and I need to keep working my butt off. At least that way my butt will be smaller! So on with the Triumphs!

1. We got to spend the weekend with my Dad and Ann! We were at a hotel and we swam and ate and played cards. We also saw my niece, Lexi, and my nephew, James. It was great to see everyone! Oh, I can't forget that we also saw Marc and Tanya, my step brother and his girlfriend! While we were there I go to go with Lexi and Ann and have my first pedicure! It was wonderful! It is a sad day when a seven year old has had three of them and I was on my first! It will not be my last!

2. The boys are doing great with their musical instruments. It is really something to listen to when they are both going at the same time!

3. I don't know if I told everyone that Jared got a promotion a few weeks ago! YAY! He is now in charge of the team that he was a part of. He says that he will be working his butt off to forge a new relationship with the team.

4. Our little library has finally caught up with the rest of the world! We can now download books on our Nooks or Kindles! I have been waiting for this! I love my Nook and will use it all the more when I don't have to pay for every single book I read. Now, this is huge for Jared and I so that is why I put it in the Triumphs!
