A little bit of ramble...

So, this past week was an interesting one.
The weather has been yucky. I know that we live in Ohio, get used to it, but it is just not fun when it gets up to 60 one day and then school is cancelled the following week. I can handle winter until that first warm up.
On Tuesday, they decided to try delayed start for the first time. I am not sure how I feel about it. The kids didn't understand why they were going to school so late. They get to school just in time to eat lunch. There is no AM kindergarten which I also don't quite agree with. I guess if you going to delay school you might as well just cancel it, just my opinion.
Jacob was sent home from school on Wednesday. He had a fever. When I took him to the doctor, he was fine. But since there are so many things going around, he put him on an antibiotic to be safe. I kept him home Thursday just to be on the safe side. Then they cancel school on Friday, so he got a whole 5 hours of school in last week.
Basketball season is coming to a close for Jacob and Joshua. They have gotten so much better as the season went on. The more they play the more they will become confident in the sport. I am sad to see the season end but I am excited about next year. I am such a big baby, I tear up every time I watch them play.
Tyler got an electric guitar. I guess I really do not have to say anything else. He has been teaching himself, which is pretty cool. I have just learned for the most part to block out a lot of the noise that is coming from his room!
Isaiah has been, well...Isaiah. I have to register him for kindergarten next month. Where has it gone? I posted on Facebook what he said to me about staying little. He told me all I have to do is give him "little" pills. I sure wish I knew where to even find some "slow down time a little" pills!

I need to get with it!
Time just flies by
We seem to stay busy and often I forget to blog. I wish I wouldn't because someday I want to make it a book for my kids. I think they will enjoy looking back and reading about what "poopyheads" they were. Yes, I said "poopyhead" Why? because I can! I am surrounded by so many boys I am surprised I don't belch and "you know" out loud. I went to the hairdresser today and she said I know you want a little girl so bad but those boys are going to take care of you someday. They may be hard now but it will be worth it someday. Girls are so different, she said, and they can be so critical about how you look and what you wear.
I was telling her about how this past week I went into the library to read to Joshua's class, first grade, and one of the girls told me that my hair looked so nice. I chuckled because you would never hear my boys say that! The girls are always commenting on something, to me, it's just funny how different they are and it starts so young.
Today, Bill and I had our first dance lesson. How did it go? I don't know...the instructor never showed up!!! How rude! We sat for over 40 minutes.
The boys have started basketball. It is so fun to watch 1st and 2nd graders play ball. I would think it would be hard to be the referee. It is good for them to be a part of a team and interact with other kids.
This weekend we are getting together with a bunch of friends and heading to Hibachi Japan...I am excited, it is going to be so much fun. Every time we get together, we have a good time.
I guess I am done with my randomness for now. I should, since it it six o'clock, think about what we are going to have for dinner!
