I'm almost done with my summer semester. This class wasn't too bad, just lots of paperwork. It was really a waste of a class. They should have let me take OB for the full ten weeks. :) I enjoyed OB, but that was a crazy five weeks of busy, busy, busy! It was around 10 chapters a week of practice tests, paperwork and a test each week (two the last week, with the final!). I missed an A by a few points and was disappointed, but I also didn't read any of the chapters fully. I skimmed, I dug around when taking practice tests, etc, but I didn't truly read, because I didn't have time.
Because you know, I have three kids. :) Nora finished Kindergarten and is super excited to start First Grade in the fall. We took out her uniforms and tried everything on. We officially have one pair of plaid pants that fit, two plaid jumpers and one pair of navy shorts. We have a ton of white shirts that fit and that will be soaked in oxyclean starting this week for the knit ones (the cotton ones are mainly perfect, probably because I didn't want to iron all the time so I used the knit ones more often, especially for the ones not under the jumpers, lol). Her one blue sweater vest still fits as does her one blue sweater. Children's Place has a super cute sweater that I would have totally paid the $20 for but it's short sleeves! What the heck is up with that? We need it for fall, winter and spring and we need it with full sleeves! We'll need more tights as she outgrew almost all of hers. I'll look around for those on sale, last year I found them at Walmart for like $1 per pair. I also need at least one pair of blue pants and another jumper or two. I will look at the school's resale shop for the jumpers as they're $5 there, instead of $40 from schoolbelles. I picked her up some super cute headbands that I think she'll actually leave in her hair at Children's Place for her birthday next month. Yes, I know, I'm a totally cool mom buying school hair accessories for a birthday. /sarcasm. I'm also a student, which translates to poor. ;)

As for me, I'm busy with school and kids. Additionally, I'm also training for my first 5k. I never thought that I would enjoy running (okay, slow jog), but I do. The first mile I have to convince myself to keep going and then it's like I hit a sweet spot. I put Josh to sleep, get Nora settled and then leave the baby with Sean and run.

Becky and Alan, as well as my mom were all here over the 4th of July. It was great. ;) She has a lot of pictures of the visit on her blog too (which is on my sidebar).

I have a tracker on here and am surprised to find that I get daily visitors, despite only posting once this year (this will make twice) and a handful of times this year. Weirdness.
