I am counting down the days until school starts..most of the children are ready to go back to school, to see their friends on a regular basis, to get back into the routine of everyday life..

Nicole is not looking forward to high school. She is not changing schools per se, the high school is in a seperate building, but she will be at the same school. I am not sure why she is dreading it so much, maybe because her sister is not going to be there.

I am in a little bit of a funk myself. I will be relieved for the little ones to return to our normal routine, and yet, i am dreading the 14th of August. That is the date that Ashley will move into the dorms. at E.C.U. . She has been on the phone with her room-mate, planning things and getting to know her.

It is in the letting go of my 17 year old daughter that I am having so much trouble...let her go, hold her close, it is so hard...

where are the teen-agers when you need them?

I tried to change the background of my blog all by myself, and i thought i erased my entire blog page oy-vey...i think i need to wait for reinforcements...i usually pick a back-ground and tell a teen-ager, fix this for me...

Now i am convinced, that is why i have so many teen-agers someone has to do the computer stuff for me..

this crazy summer time

I haven't spent any -time on my blog lately...i am running around in circles, with so much still going on..we haven't had a break this year, and a vacation is out of the question..we can't seem to get everyone in the same place at the same time..

I had really looked forward to lazy days with nothing to do, but play with the children read a good hasn't happened yet...i don't believe it will...

Between children leaving, and children coming home, and other children leaving, and then the other children leaving i am completely mental..
