An end in sight

well for summer at least....its hard to believe summer break is almost over for the boys...it has gone by so fast...and we havent done anything...except bike rides, and walks...we only got over to Nicks moms house once...its just been us here at home most of the summer...The boys are glad to be going back...they like school..they take after me that way..i always liked school...well, except when i lived in New Mexico...i hated school out there...Michael is headed to 4th grade, logan to 2nd, and the twins are redoing kindergarten...A choice i made by the way...the teacher said it might benefit them, so in order for them to function better in the higher grades i made the choice i thought was right for them...they are also being separated into different classes...i think they need a little independance from each other...they are together so much that they fight constantly...

the open house is wednesday..yeah, i know, on the twins bday..lol...Denny has them right now, but he is gonna bring them back so i can take them to it..they get to go in and meet their teachers, and find their classrooms so that they are totally overwhelmed by the first day...i like that they do that...when i was little, the bus took me to school the first day, and i would panic..lol..but it was often at a new school, so i didnt always know what to do...i always make sure the boys are not insecure in that way...the first week, i take them to class every morning...then after that, i stay out on the playground with them till the bell rings, then eventually i am able to just drop them off...its a 2 week process..lol..i know some wouldnt agree, but its what helps my boys feel confident...and lets them know i am there...

So, i got my first ticket...as if my budget wasnt tight enough already...my plates are expired, and i cant really afford to get them updated...but i still have a family to take care of, so i went to the store....well, when i walked out, our finest bike cop was standing behind my van...so, i got a ticket...its my own fault...and i wouldnt be in a tight situation if i wasnt too proud to take the help that is offered to me....but i turned it down anyway...stupid i know...i would be less stressed if i hadnt...but, im not sure how to let go of that pride when i am in a jam...so, tomorrow i go to the bank and get a money order and send it in...stupid me..

my mom and aunt and throwing logan and the twins a birthday party on Sunday...im so excited for it...they are going to try to rent one of those blow up bouncing things...im not telling the boys about it....im keeping the party a suprise...originally the party was just for logan, but with the twins birthday being tomorrow, we decided to make it for all 3...there is no way i could throw another party right now...

we arent doing anything for memorial day...hopefully there will be a parade in town...i know, not a big one, but its close, and dosnt cost any gas to get there...and i like walking into town...with school starting the next day, i want the boys to relax a bit and get back on schedule anyway...
