Hopefully I am doing this right. I guess we will see soon enough.
The family is doing good here. Donnie and Autumn are back to school. Autumn seems to be adjusting a bit better. She really loves her teacher! Donnie is still getting used to his class but is doing great. I think it is because Donnie's class size is bigger than Autumn's. Not to mention the fact that Autumn is in preschool 1/2 day and Donnie is all day first grade. Donnie has started soccer. He is so good at it and loves to play! Autumn will be able to play in the Spring. Donnie is in a more competitive group this year and they travel in the fall. I wasn't sure how it would work out with 2 kids in soccer since they would be in 2 different age groups. They don't travel in the Spring so it will be easier for me to have them both in soccer. I am still looking for an activity that Autumn absolutely loves. I may take her to the music store and she if she is more musical than athletic. She didn't want to do ballet again.
John is busy working as always. He is also taking classes so he can get his bachelors degree. I am so glad that the guard pays for that! Poor guy is always going. Whenever he gets free time he goes riding on his motorcycle with my Dad. I try not to nag him about all the unfinished projects he has at home. It's really hard at times.
I have been enjoying a bit of free time the last couple of days. I have 2 1/2 hours of peace and quiet while the kids are both at school. It makes it nice to get cleaning done in the house or to enjoy a good book. I love to read!! I have really been enjoying the Summer Olympics. I am still pretty behind in watching them but they are all recorded so I can fast forward thru anything I don't really want to watch. Well, I have probably bored you guys enough. Have a great day!!
