I Know It's Been a While...

So, since my last post I have been offered a full-time teaching position at Siloam Springs Middle School. With any luck and the Lord's provision I will retire in this school district!!! I'm teaching 7th grade math--which I love!!!! We have also enrolled the girls in the district. This should be the last time we transfer them as far as schools go. ;) I'm really enjoying my math team, and I think it's going to be a great school district to work for.

As I type this I'm listening to Michael Buble on Pandora and trying to maintain some kind of sanity while my 4 children are going crazy--I mean, cleaning the playroom upstairs. :) I was really hoping that this summer would be the time I'd get my life, our house, and our kids organized. Guess again!!! We continue to be in survival mode even though Drew is a year. If I dwell on it long enough I get depressed. It's extremely frustrating. As I've said to others before...you give me a class full of 25 rowdy junior high kids, and I'll have them under my thumb in 5 minutes. You give me my own four children, and you'd never know I have a teaching degree! It's sad, really. Any suggestions? I don't know how others with this many or more kids do it. Or are they in the same boat I am? Where does one even start? Anyway...

Summer is definitely in full swing here! Anne and Naomi are enjoying Terrific Tuesday activities with our church. The same wonderful lady is leading it and does a fantastic job. I need to plan another trip to Silver Dollar City with the kids since we have season passes. The next time we go, Andy and I would like to just take the oldest two. Then we could all ride rides together.

I'll try to get birthday pics of Drew among others posted soon. Maybe I need to start with a schedule...I don't know. Till next time.

I'm TOTALLY in the same boat as you. I feel like I'm doggy paddling and can barely keep my head above water!

I came to the conclusion that in about 17 years I can get caught up on housework......
