It's been a long time

It has been about 7 weeks since my last post and feels like it has been longer! I'm sure you guys are like me and are sick of looking at my last post over and over. Well, my work for the Pre-K is finished and boy was it an experience! I enjoyed getting to know the kids and learning how they worked. When I say "how they worked", I mean, I had one who loved to tell stories, big ones, one who didn't want to listen, many who loved coming up for hugs, many who loved to have me sit in the floor with them and play puzzles or whatever, and some who loved to be the door holder. Many many different children and many different needs! I love each and every one of them. I will have to go up there and visit with them some. My job now is to work with my own son, Bradley. I am taking him out of Pre-k and going to teach him here at home! I am excited about this and he is very eager to learn. He is ready to learn to read. I have until August to get him ready for Kindergarten. Believe it or not, in Pre-k they are not allowed to teach them their numbers or letters. It is for learning social interaction. What a bummer!

The girls are doing good. Allison is learning how to count money and how to tell time. I'll have you know that I did not actually learn how to tell time until I was in the 7th grade!! I don't know how I made it that far without knowing. Lexi is doing great. My little lady. I am enjoying her more and more everyday. I just wish she would keep that room of hers more clean without me having to tell her too. We love shopping together! She is so easy going and I love that in her!

Jeff, oh Jeff, he is working full time and taking 12 hrs of classes with ASU Newport online. It is much harder than we thought, but he is getting better at making time for his school work. Now that I am not working full time out of the house maybe it will get easier for him. I love him so very much and am thanking God every day for bringing us together!! He is my one true love! Okay, enough with the mushy stuff. We are getting excited about spring break. Not sure what we will do but we will figure out something! Well, I will go for now because Jeff needs me to read his paper from our theater play we saw last night. It is good to be back and I will write more another day!
