It Sure Has "Been A Week"

Seriously is this week over yet?  So far the milestones of the last seven days have been me repairing a dishwasher and a washing machine, reprogramming the irrigation, replanting a thorny palm tree seven times because Miss Daisy didn't like it blocking her view to the busy street below... every bl**ping morning!!! And not so surprisingly I did not finish all the laundry.  I also did not fix the ice machine, even though I've made every possible attempt to get it working again... I mean, it's not a complex thing - but for some stinking reason it just doesn't want to work.  Ugh!  I also did a "Google" crash-course on the difference between formatting on a MAC and a PC.  And then the rest of the time I chauffeured my three kids and their buddies around the suburbs in a minivan like a good soccer mom does.

Now for the fun stuff - HIGHLIGHTS - from this past week... Buggy was one of only 17 students to participate in the Castle Fair this year.  She was not happy with her project outcome, but we won't get into that... she worked hard and that's all that matters.  She also had her final advanced orchestra performance of the school year - they worked on Bach's Fugue in G Minor for the entire school year - and it was outstanding. Monkey Boy got first place in his class for his carbon dioxide Science Fair project.  He did a great job and we are pleased with his outstanding efforts.  And earlier in the week Freckle Face was called to be the Beehive President in the Young Women's organization.  She too, has been working hard and we are so proud of her example.

XOXO- Jess
