Spring has sprung!

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.
