Just a quick little update...

Hello, bloggy friends!

Not a great deal of time today, as Abby had her basketball medal ceremony at 9:45, and Kate has a ball game at 12:00, but I thought I'd try and give you an update.

We're doing well here at Casa de Killian.

The new schedule is quite an adjustment, but I think we almost have it figured out. I think the adjustment has been the roughest on Grace... She loves Ju Ju, and she loves staying with her, but she's also used to seeing ME. A LOT. And she hasn't had that the last few weeks. She's acting out a little bit... she decided to give herself a haircut last week, and gapped it up pretty well right in the front. We're all a little sad about that, because, REALLY, she has BEAUTIFUL hair... so thick and long and gorgeous... I haven't taken her to get it fixed yet, not just because I haven't had time, but also because I am trying to decide if I can bear to cut it off. I don't know yet. I may just have to trim it, and let the gapped part grow out. She has also been sick this week. Nothing major, just a nasty cough, but it's hard on her AND on Mama to not be with her when she's puny. Hopefully she will adjust soon and get back to being a happy little girl.

School is going well for me. I REALLY am enjoying being back in the classroom. My students seem excited, and, well, I'm pretty excited, too. My own children are LOVING me being at school. They think it's pretty nifty to walk down the hall and see me and give me a hug at random times during the day! I love being able to see them and be near them. I feel at home.

If you've been praying for us, keep it up. I'm pretty sure God is listening!!! :-)

I'm so glad that teaching is going well. I knew you'd be great at it. I'm glad you love it. I know how the girls feel. I loved having my mom up there at school! I hope you get some good time with Gracie this weekend! She'll get used to it and before you know it, she'll be up there with you too!

It's so hard to leave your babies! I stayed home when my older ones were little and it was hard for me when I left Cari to teach 20+ years ago...I think I cried every day for a year! Even though I was at school with Derek and Hillary...I was away from Cari and she was 4! Then I had to leave Dillan when he was only 6 months old...but he was in wonderful hands with Sheri LeBlanc! We'll keep praying!

You know I am sure this does not actually help however Brianna cut her hair!! Just in time for Michael and Melanie's wedding... Melanie did quite well at covering it up for it to grow back... I am pretty sure she will never make that mistake again.. she was so embarrased.....I am glad that you are enjoying your job. I come and check on you all the time!!!
