2016 – A year in review.

2016 was pretty crazy. Normally on the last few days of the year, I write about my resolutions proposed accomplishments that I achieved throughout the year but I decided to add little something to my annual post. I want to look back and write some of the things that happened this year. I am going […]

Moments Peace

I have a few moments peace right now. The boys are in summer school. I am doing laundry and cleaned up the kitchen this morning. Yesterday was interesting. Mikhail woke up with the moans and groans, and of course, the growls. He didn’t want to go to summer school. Lovely. He was super excited about […]

School Year Complete.

Well, another year has passed. It will officially be summer break as of 11:20 am tomorrow. I will have a 7th grader and 2nd grader. Can you believe it!? I surely can’t. It’s surreal that we’ve lived in this house for one year now. It’s unbelievable that entire school year has passed. Wow!  They did […]

Conferences were this week. Mikhail’s teacher requested that we don’t have a conference for this semester. I requested from her that she, at least, updates me with a progress report on how things are going via e-mail or the phone. I’m giving her until after spring break to contact me. Overall, Mikhail is doing really […]

School nonsense.

Today was just fun-filled with nonsense. First, I checked the school’s app and got notified that Nick was marked absent for a class called “Reading Intervention” which I didn’t even knew he had! So, I checked his schedule and sure enough his language arts and reading classes were switched around and instead of taking “Read-180” […]

Brain Dump

This will be a random post. I have a lot of randomness to talk about from my previous weekend. Not one thing in particular I want to talk about but rather multiple little things. This will be one of my many brain dump posts. This will be all over the place. Be prepared for a […]

It’s hard to say that one of your students is struggling while the other is performing well above average. That’s the conflict I am feeling. We had Mikhail’s conferences last night. After waiting about 45 minutes his teacher was finally ready to see us. We walked in, sat down, and she looked us and suddenly […]

Extended Conferences

I was going to write this yesterday, but I never got around to it. I had a trying day yesterday. First thing in the morning, Mike and I awoke; he went in the bathroom and I took off the bedding. I was carrying the laundry basket down the stairs when I got to the bottom […]

I contemplated writing this yesterday but decided to wait until I had my coffee, some music, some time without any interruptions, and a clear mind. I think I prefer it this way. I like writing while the boys are either at school or while they’re in bed. I can concentrate so much more. I also […]

Good Day

Today has been a good day so far. I woke up and got the boys awake. Once they were stirring and I got some coffee in me I ran downstairs and got some chicken from the chest freezer and threw in a load of laundry while I was at it. Let me just say I love […]

Grounded And Weekend Stuff

This is going to be a hodge podge of nonsense. I just want to update everyone myself what’s going on. I mean, I am the only one who reads this so what’s the point of saying anyone anymore, right? Actually, I wanted to talk about that. I am contemplating deleting my old entries from being online but […]
