It's Mama Monday. It is the last Monday of my daughter's 4th and my son's 7th grade years which is so very hard to believe but oh so true.
I have to say that I am ready for the last Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to be done and gone. I am ready for the kids to be out of school. I can't handle one more request for donations, one more field study form to be signed, one more item to be brought to school or one more reminder for my kids to do their danged homework. Here's what I have to say about this school year... I'm d - o - n - e DONE!
Today I had to have a meeting with my son's math teacher and we came up with a plan for him to study just 2 hours a week this summer (with 3 weeks off) just to get him up to snuff in time for 8th grade math this fall. But despite being nice for the teachers (albeit completely not engaged), as soon as we left school he said pretty much, "despite whatever I said in there 'No!'" I realize it is frustrating to try harder and do better and for it not to be enough but life is life and it isn't always free time and roses all summer long.
I'm not really dealing with it today however. I'm saving that for another day after school is out.
Then there is my daughter who has begun to push her homework closer and closer to her bedtime and I can't stand it. Again, despite grumbling at her quite a bit tonight, I'm done with it. Things are gonna evolve over the summer and we are doing things differently come fall.
As far as my shop, I'm excited to finish up my first wedding sign ... which only needs a trip to the craft store for some appropriate ribbon to be complete!
And now this Mama has to go and attempt to figure out what we are gonna do for Father's Day this weekend.
Ciao for now,
