Towards the end of summer, I noticed that we were all getting a little more impatient with each other... and I knew that it was time. Time to be back on a schedule. Time to be working, improving, accomplishing. (That doesn't always happen in the summer).
This year, Riley is at the High School. It just so happens to be the same High School that I went to (about
Riley is taking some hard classes. She always seems to breeze through classes (even though she can drive me crazy with her procrastination--that may be the death of me). She is taking a couple of guitar classes this year. That should be interesting. I hope she likes it because I went out and bought a guitar before school started.
Brynn is playing the violin again. She didn't play last year because she wanted to take cooking and sewing. I think she was a little disappointed with those classes. She thought she was going to learn lots and lots and ended up a little frustrated. She doesn't like to carry the violin to school. (I so remember hating that too). I think she feels a little nerdy or something. I hope she will stick with it.
I sure love my kids! I hope we have a fantastic year!!
