Crazy Crazy Week

I know it has been a while since I posted anything, but you must understand the craziness going on in life. Every night I have been making lesson plans for tutoring and teaching. I tutor in Math for methods class and teach Reading on Tuesday and Thursday.

Connor has been so moody lately. I understand that he is two and it is bad, but I don't know what to do. If we tell him "NO" he whines, if we tell him "Yes" he wines. There is no pleasing him.  Oh well, we will deal.

Well off to write more lessons!!

Nap time is the best!

Things are finally getting back to normal around here.  Branden was in Tulsa for a training class for work, while I was taking care of the normal things back home. I am so EXHAUSTED from this past week. I have never seen a kid with as much energy as Connor. He has definitely kept  me on my toes. 

Not only did I have to take care of Connor, but I also had school. After Connor would go to bed around 9, I would stay up until 11 or 12, doing homework. I would go to sleep tired and wake up tired.  No matter how hard I worked to ware out Connor, he still had energy to play.  It's a good thing, but when you are stressed with school work it's impossible to see as a good thing. 

 Well off I go to study!! Bye!

Where has the time gone?

It is already September 5. Where has the time gone? Oh, I know. Work and school work along with taking care of the boys have taken over.  School is in full swing and by that I mean, tons of homework every night.  It is the make it or break it semester.
Connor is in the terrible two's stage. He hits us when he doesn't get what he wants and has gone so far as to kicking.  He throws his cups when he gets water instead of apple juice. At daycare, he bit a kid. We are trying very hard to stop this behavior, but it still happens. 

This past weekend Tropical Storm Lee passed through. Not fun at all. I thought we would be able to go to the zoo or the park. Nope, TS Lee had other plans.  After three days of rain, I am sick of rain. The only good thing about the rain is that it brought  cooler weather. We are all sick with this quick weather change, though.

Hopefully, we will be better soon!
