I have recently felt motivated to get back to my blogging. More as a journal than anything else. I love looking back over old posts, and I want to print out a book of them.
We are now (as of July 2013) located in Albuquerque, NM. Never thought I'd be here, but it's a good place to live. Weather is milder than Denver and cooler than southern California. It has a small town feel, even though it is a city. We bought a home in the NE heights and remodeled it, perhaps I will post pictures of that later.
Today I made three morning trips to the schools. One for Emma, she had to be at school at 7:30 am for a band festival she is doing today. Two for Ashley, who has student council on Wednesday mornings. And three for Ashley, who forgot today was "sprint for spring" day and didn't wear running shoes. Ahhh motherhood. The kids are involved in many good activities and I am beginning to be a taxi mom. I remember my mom telling me she should have a license plate that said TAXI, because that was all she did.
Emma has soccer on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and stays after school for show choir on Tuesday and Thursdays. Camille has drama club after school Tuesday and Thursday, and piano lessons on Friday afternoon. Ashley has student council on Wednesday morning, and gymnastics on Wednesday afternoon. Nathan has soccer on Saturdays and Taekwondo class on Tuesday evening. Add to that activity days, mutual, scouts, homework, dinner, and keeping a house in order and it keeps us plenty busy. I am very grateful to have the means to let the kids try all these fun things. I think it is good for them to have these experiences. Plus, Nate is so intense about Taekwondo and so cute in his uniform!
