Hello, friends. I am trying to get back into writing some, but I'm having a hard time. I'm currently sitting at the soccer fields waiting for G to finish her soccer practice for the middle school boys' team. She and her friend D are the only girls and are having a great time. The season has been a bit frustrating, but they have enjoyed themselves. The wind is blowing so hard that it almost blew my iPad off the picnic table here. That would have been a sad day for me and a long evening for my family as I bellyached my time away about a cracked iPad. My dad is doing as well as can be expected following the loss of my mother. We all still feel as though we are living in a nightmare and are waiting to wake up and see her beautiful face...and smell her wonderful scent. But, alas, that is not to be. Since I last posted, my oldest has attended the prom with her friend. That was tough since I am the tomboyest of tomboys and am not one for dresses or makeup. She looked lovely I must say. The kids are now winding up their school year. Three-ish weeks left and then summer will explode. This week G goes to the county prelims for track. She has been a beast with the discus and will hopefully throw well again to represent her school. The boy is hoping to be a safety patrol next year, so I went to his meeting tonight to sign the paperwork. They find out on Friday, so let's all say a little prayer. I think he should get a spot, but nothing seems certain anymore, so I'm not getting hopes up until I hear the announcement. S is working hard to audition for drum captain and drum line again this year. She is drumming on everything she can. Good times.
I will try to post on a more regular basis. It just is going to take some time.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers during this time. We will survive this...somehow.
