Bullet Points

Fly by post - this week has been totally crazy!!!!

*No meal plan for this week.  We had a snow day on Monday and then I'm leaving tonight and while I had a basic plan in my head, it never made it to paper (or blog for that matter!)  Plus, I'm pretty sure that Mr. CrazyLife will ditch the meal plan when he's home alone with four children in favor of KFC and pizza delivery!  =)

*Having a great time at work this week - we're playing games!!!  I love playing music games with my kids.  They learn and retain so much more.  Plus - well, it's fun!

*Tonight I hop on a plane and head to Florida!!!!  I cannot wait!!!!!  Both for the trip and for meeting my long-time online friend Meredith!

*I'm nervous about the Princess Half this weekend.  I know I can do it and I'm excited, but still a bit nervous!!!

*I've never flown by myself before, so I'm a wee bit nervous about that too.  I know it will go well, but still . . .

*When I kissed the kids goodbye this morning before leaving for work, Thing #1 asked me to bring her something back from Disney.  I sighed, expecting the worst.  Her request?  A picture of the castle all lit up at night!

*Still having school issues with Thing #2.  He's a challenge for sure, but we're feeling like his teacher is just looking for trouble from him now.  Mr. CrazyLife is calling the school this morning to head things off.  *sigh*  The challenges of having gifted children.

*Last night the little kids were asking for homework again.  So we did addition flash cards with Thing #3.  Color/Shape flash cards with Thing #4.  Then I had some valentine sweethearts left over.  We did an estimating sheet and then a color graph with them.  I have some pics that I'll post on a later preschooling post.  The big kids did them too.

*I almost forgot to pack my swimming suit for the trip!!!  Tragedy!!  Thankfully, I saw this morning as I was leaving the house and it made it into the bag.

*Working on party planning for Things #1 and #4.  The Dora post above is still going, although we may have to make some time changes as my SIL is planning on coming in for the party.  Thing #1 wants a slumber party - is it insane to have a bunch of 8 year old girls in for a slumber party?

*Gotta run. . . . my 5th graders are waiting!!!  See you on the flip side with a complete Disney and Race recap!!!!!

Sometimes KFC and pizza delivery does make a good dinner!

I just found you through one of the Thursday blog hops. Have a great week!
