Today was the last day of school for Ben. Kindergarten is over and now summer begins. He is very excited but finished a little behind so he will be having a tutor come work with him a little each week. He has big plans for this summer including the water park, a vacation, playdates with a friend from school... I hope I can keep up!
Caitlyn finished up with preschool yesterday and if she had her way, she would have started kindergarten today. The girl loves school. Litte momma is such a good girl and a great helper with baby boy (who we now call Bean. long story.)
Amanda finished. not as well or as far as I would have liked or had planned, but there is no point in trying to get her to keep doing school if Ben & Caitlyn are home. It would be one fight after another. She is going to volunteer at the animal shelter this summer about 3 hours a week. really gross, hot, smelly jobs she would never do at home. I hope she makes new friends and learns something. She is definitely headed back to school for 8th grade and I have a meeting set up for a tour with the special ed coordinator (who I really like) I cannot even begin to guess how next year will go. *sigh*
Bean is growing so fast. Visits have been cancelled already since mom has been a no show for four consecutive weeks. If and when she shows up again, they will make arrangements but until then, no bi-weekly trips into town for me. (yay). I found out that he did test positive for one substance at birth and I have no idea how that will affect him, but we will cross that when we get to it. The caseworker told me they have court at the end of the month and she will call me after.... not getting my hopes up.
I am job hunting again. I have enjoyed being home, but now it is time to get back to the grindstone, lol. I have a few leads, but I am just praying that God will put me in the right place and I am not stressing too much.
Until then, I have to think of something to do with four kids every day of summer! Yikes! Let the fun begin.
