The days keep going

I have com to the conclusion that no matter how long I put off blogging it is still there. My life will never slow down until kids are grown and living on their own. Now mind you my life would be so much smoother if my 15 year old did not have MENTAL Illness or teenager hormones better known as PUBERTY going on. SO I am going to do my best and encourage my children to strive to be their best.

The girls are ending there 14th week of school. They have come along way since we have started this LCA curriculum. I am not going to lie the girls are not so much enjoying it but I think once we get through this year they will be happy at how they are doing. Kenzee is actually making effort to work on her own. Independent learning is so important for any child. That is very exciting for them.

They are doing very well sounding out there words. Well Lileigh is catching on but she thinks she needs to sound out every word even if she knows it. She also is sounding some words back wards very strange. But going through this with Makenzee I know it is normal.

Makenzee is doing very well except for math she hates math she loved Saxon math but hates the PACE math. But she is doing very well. Actually yesterday she started multiplying and she is doing great. She hates adding and carrying  as well as subtracting and borrowing. What would take kenzee seems like forever with math when it came to adding and subtracting she take all day just to maybe do half a page. Well since yesterday of starting multiplaction she has done 8 pages... Believe me thats a WOW because I wanted to wig out on her..putting it nicely but we managed through it.. And look it paid off being mean..

Well now on to Jon-Jon I got him registared in LAVCA. I understand he wants to get his GED.  I have tried explaining to him that he needs to focus on his education to get stronger on his weak points so he can pass his GED. I also was explaining to him that a High School Diploma is muych better to have. Well at this point I am trying to stay positive. But it is very hard at times and way more then others.. But he will start August 17, 2011 and I will talk it up to get him ready. We can do this! =)

Abbigale is a curious 2 year old into everythiong nothing is sacred. She loves to be read to as well as she loves to draw, color, and pretend to write. She is very active but she is starting to sit down for longer periods and actually starting to watch little TV with girls when it is TV time. Now to get her to want to potty trained.

We have VBS at Calvary Baptist Church. I am going to help teach 4th grade Mission. We are headed to The Big Apple. Yep New York is our destination to share Gods laws and love. No we are not actually going to New York but we are going to pretend we are in New York. This should be so fun. I am so looking forward to being apart of it. Makenzee will be in 2nd grade for VBS and Lileigh will be in Kindergarten. Booth girl participated in VBS at Calvary last year 2010. The girls just loved being apart of it. VBS starts June 6th through the 10th. We shall be busy that week.

In closing I know I have not blogged in while my mind is just been in a wirl wind. My Mother in Law Susan Johnson passed away April 14, 2011. Our lives have been consumed with dealing with an incorrigible child to a old man who is lonely and not dealing with it so well. We are at a point in our lives that we are not able to breath at times. Mr. Ed and Ms. Sue would have been married 30 years on May 20.. The life cycle begins when parents raise us and let us go there comes the time when it is up to us to give back to our parents by taking care of them. We as humans do this natural thing. Some just get it more then others. I do not regret anything I have or have not done because when ever I do anything I DO MY VERY BEST!! Life is way to short so make it the best you can you know the saying life can be a bunch of sour lemons but I say make sweet yummy lemon aide out of it!!

“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating......and you finish off as an orgasm.”

24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
