Well the calendar says spring has arrived! But for most of the country it still feels like winter and here it already feels like summer!
It has been awhile since I have blogged....I had been meaning too. A lot has happened, but my free time is far and few between.
Here is a summary of the past few weeks:
December: aside from the Holiday's we traded in the truck for a 2005 mini-van!
January: Sami got braces! Summer needs them too but we can barely afford one in braces so sadly Summer will have to wait. I also found out I will be losing my medical insurance at work :( And for those who never looked into the Health Care Market place, you should; none of the plans are cheap and the only way I would qualify for a subsidy would be to stop working all together :( I was able to get a plan with a decent copay and deductible but it is quite expensive compared to what I had before.
February: We took a trip to the beach and blew a tired on I-75 on the way home. It did A LOT of damage to the van:( 1 month and a lot of money later we finally got it back!
March: Summer turned 8 and Joey turned 3. We had a smaller party at home for the two of them and planned a party with a few friends from school for Summer but no one showed up:( She was very upset. A friend of mine made some AWESOME cakes for them though!
We are now on spring break and that means only 9 weeks of school left!!! This year has flown by so fast. Sami is doing well in middle school. Grace adjusted to kindergarten well. Summer had struggled a bit with common core this year and some issues with how her brain processes sounds (her teacher and doctors agrees) but there is no treatment and it is not considered a learning disability, so we just try to work with her and be patient.
That pretty much sums it up! Thanks for reading.
