The year comes to a close....well the school year anyway

It feels like so much has happened in the last few months.

To start we had our year end review. I was quite honestly petrified of our review this year. Our umbrella group who reviews us and reports all findings to the state changed some of their policies and instead of peer reviews they decided to go with using only a few reviewers to review all the families. With having surgery and being sick since January I was certain there was no way I would have enough work for the school year. It turns out that my being organized and also my mother's intuition in starting school mid August last year paid off. Not only did we pass our review with flying colors I was asked to be a reviewer and quite honestly I am completely excited and honored to hold that position in our umbrella.

Let's see, what else? Oh yes, both of our girls finished their first year of gymnastics and received medals for participation. Booger is doing so well in Karate, he is now a brown belt and will get to start helping with leading stretches and warmups for the class.

On mother's day I became an aunt again. What a joy it is to watch my little sister grow her family and become such a wonderful mother.

 Life is moving so fast, it seems like just yesterday, we just started teaching Booger his letters and were making some small decisions towards homeschooling. Now we've been at it for over 4 years and wouldn't change a thing.

Summer should be full of exciting things. I am trying to plan one big activity/holiday a week. Hopefully I will remember to blog about it ;)
