I'm Back with my Sanity Mostly Intact

It's been awhile but hopefully you will understand. It feels like it's been such a long time since I've been on here, and I'm a little worried that I may have lost my "voice" so to speak. I guess I should just dive in, so here goes...

We decided that we needed to move to a bigger house; we found the perfect house; closed on the house and moved - all within 3 weeks! It has been a CRAZY time I tell ya. We just finished with our old house this weekend and now can concentrate on fully moving in to our new home. Which means I may be able to stop living out of the suitcase someday soon.

We moved from one side of the city to the other which has been a huge change for all of us. Alek started at a new school and it's been a hard adjustment. The new school is about triple the population of his old school and is freaking me out too, so I can understand where he's coming from. He's having a hard time making friends and the boys in his class aren't being overly welcoming, which is very hard for this mammma to handle. So please, cross your fingers for me that they will soon see what an awesome kid he is.

Lukas is now in a big-boy bed and the transition has been surprisingly easy. Although I find him curled up on the floor almost every morning. He told me this morning that, "me not fall out of bed, me just like it here." Ok, whatever floats your boat Lukas.

Mikah is almost four. We are having boundary issues daily. I can't wait until he is old enough to be mostly reasonable. Seriously; I can't wait.

School has started back up for me as well and I have a full plate of math and language arts students. I've got a nice mix of new students and returning ones which keeps me on my toes; but I wouldn't trade it.

There you go. A short and sweet post. How did I do?

Yeah! You're back!!! Your right about grade 4, remember that's the year that Heather & her 5 fellow friends joined back into their grade from the split class - huge adjustment for everyone. Hoping things turn around for the better.
