Puppy Love

We did it (yawn). Sean has been wanting a puppy for his own for as long as I can remember(did I say,"for his own?") So, in honor of his 13th birthday, Dad and Mom bit the bullet, so to speak. I feel like I'm living through babyhood all over again - the sleepless nights, cleaning up mess (although, he's doing really good, as far as puppies go), the whining just when I've settled into relaxation mode... I know we asked for it! And, honestly, I think it's all worth it every time I see the look in Sean's eyes when they're playing together or snuggled up on the couch. Just a boy and his dog - what can I say? Excuse me while I try to sneak in a nap!

Hello New School Year

Okay, I'm sitting here reading from blog to blog when I know I have so much to do to get ready for school. That's right...Adams Academy is opening for the 2008-09 school year. Can't say I'm "chomping at the bit", but at least some sense of normalcy will return to our household. Sleepovers will be alot less frequent -say, from every night to just one per weekend. We'll wake up earlier:( and be more scheduled :( :( We'll have books and projects spread all over the house. I know I'm not sounding like an enthusiastic, homeschooling mom right now... Summer has just been way too short this year. But, life is short and the learning must go on! Truly, I do feel blessed to be able to learn all the things I should've learned a long time ago right along with my kids. So, good-bye summer, hello new school year!
