Just a quick hello!

I know, I'm the worst blogger but in all fairness it is the last week of school and I am SUPER busy with work so please bear with me.

For starters the kids are doing great! Both are healthy, mostly happy and so ready for summer vacation. Last week Maia's Brownie troop had their awards ceremony and my girl earned 12 patches! She was so proud and so was I. Her troop leaders organized a pizza and banana split party, and all 17 of the brownies had a blast! Micaylah's troop will do awards tomorrow and I'm hoping she has as much fun as Maia's troop did. Also last week I was elected into the Gonzalez PTA as Vice President. The idea of being on the board is exciting and scary but I'm definitely up for the challenge.

This week is insane! Between my job, the kids end of year activities, mom's appointments, and maintaining my sanity I'm having difficulty finding a quiet moment for myself. It's pretty bad when I look forward to going to the store for milk because I know I'll be alone for a few moments. Tomorrow Maia is going on the Accelerated Reader Mystery Trip ( Shh, they're going to Mr. Gatti's). She can go because she is a top reader at her school. Then Wednesday Maia will be getting a Principal's Award for Straight A's all year and then a surprise award, maybe citizenship or a reading award. Thursday both girls have Bulldog Blowout, which is like Feild Day but less structure, more craziness. The school rents jumpers, hires a DJ and enlists the help of parents to serve the kids all the snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn and pickles they can eat. It's a tradition at Gonzalez and all of the kids look forward to it every year. Thankfully Friday is the last day of school and I am officially on Summer vacation. I can't wait to sleep in and enjoy cups of coffee on my porch instead of cold starbucks at my desk :P

I hope everyone is well! Sorry for the quickie post, I promise once May is over I'll be able to devote more time to my 3 readers :)
