This one rode her bike almost every day.
She made the JV Volleyball team and is making friends.
She loves her classes.
She tries to explain her math to me, and I zone out.
High school all over again.
This one loves her teacher and is ready with stories every day when I pick her up.
She is also enduring mysterious stomach ailments and isn't herself.
The doctor said not to worry.
We'll give it a month.
I wish a band aid would make everything better like the old days.
This one can't decide on what to wear eh-ver-ree morning.
She too is happy at school.
But she likes to be home too.
She has become so independent.
And oh those teeth. They're killing me.
I'm looking forward to the weekend.
The Agronomist is home after a few days away for business,
The Sun is shining after a few days of heavy cloud and rain.
The corn is so sweet, and I have some in the fridge.
The promise of projects to be completed is in the air.
If I could jump for joy like this...I would.
But I can't so I will got my eldest to do it for me.
That is why I had children.
That is also part of the reason I'm missing them.
They are very good at jumping,
and dishwasher emptying.
I miss my girls when they are at school....
It's the hum of activity and the warmth they bring to our home.
It's empty without them.
And no I am not getting a dog.
Although I have been tempted by this breed:
picture of Meg Duerksen's Dog at whatever. Love him... and her.
But then I realized he/she wouldn't be able to dust and empty the dishwasher,
it just wouldn't be the same.
Have a great weekend.
