I have so much to write about.
It has been such a full, hectic week.
I have not written the last two days, and I must write today. I will write more on these topics later, but for tonight, here is a snapshot of what has happened in our family this week.
Tuesday night (Wednesday morning) I went to bed at 1am…end of the semester, so I was up doing homework. At 4am my Honey cat woke me up to let me know she was ready to have her kittens, and she wanted me with her! She had 4 beautiful kittens. We love them so much, but taking care of the mama and babies is proving to be more difficult than I expected. She keeps trying to hide them inside our box springs!
Yesterday, M`s glasses came in. Today she got to wear the to school for the first time and said she was able to see better and her eyes didn’t hurt as much. They look amazing, too. Hopefully this is an answer we have been praying for, to make school easier and more enjoyable for M.
Also yesterday, A had her first soccer practice. This is her first time participating in a sport, and I am a little worried about her asthma. Yesterday was great, though. She loved it, her best friend is on her team, and she did a great job. Maybe she will be a super star like her sister! Then again, she sure enjoyed socializing and goofing off. I do love that she is her own unique, wonderful person.
And tonight we got to celebrate K by attending the Carson Scholar’s banquet, as she is a 3 time scholar (she has been recognized every year possible.) This year she even got her picture taken with Dr. Carson and he signed her copy of Gifted Hands. He is such a wonderful, inspirational person. This scholarship takes into account academics (scholars must have at least a 3.75 gpa with recommendations from teacher and principal), extra curricular activities and most of all, “great humanitarian work”. I am so proud of my first born daughter.
So that is a highlight of the biggest events of our week. It has been quite exciting at our house. We are hoping for a calmer weekend!
