I wrote this last Friday to sum up the craziest week ever! I am just now 5-25 getting around to posting this whinefest!
Like I said earlier, the weeks towards the end of school are the busiest ones. Add to that the work I am doing on my Masters this year, and I am just overwhelmed. To make it even better, add on a little bit of the sinus yuckies and a sore throat, and I have the recipe for the perfect week.
Just so next year at this time I can look back and say, nope, I was as busy last year, I am going to do a little run down/whining about my week so far.
Monday - spent all day at school preparing for IEP meetings (IEP's are 20-25 page documents on each student that detail their special ed services)
Tuesday - IEP day - meetings with parents and teachers ALL DAY - Dance after school with Ava - Supper meeting with NHS officers to plan next year's activities - Went home and baked 2 batches of Oreo-Stuffed Choco Chip Cookies - Kids up late!
Wednesday - Read End of Course English I test to students (OMG! SOOOOO LONG!) - Finish IEP's - Retirement party set up - Retirement party after school - Helped Bradley in the garden. Wrote a 1500 word paper in less than 3 hours
Thursday - Read End of Course History test to students - Work on more sped paperwork - Have worst night with kids - Kids bathed and in bed by 7:45 and yes, it was still light out! :)
Friday - Dance recital dress rehearsal right after school with Ava. We still have to get new tights and black shoes at some point.
All throughout this week I have also tried to straighten up the house and put things into some semblence of order, but it hasn't really happened yet. Oh well.... dance recital and final soccer game/awards tomorrow. I am soooo tired already....

This is sort of a catch-up post. We have had such a crazy couple of weeks for me more than most. The last few weeks of school are always the busiest and by the time I get home, I am just wiped. Here are a few recent happenings here at the Rogers' house.
- Ava has one soccer game left. This coming weekend will be the last game and while I have enjoyed watching her play, I am ready to have my Saturdays back!
- Harrison's daycare celebrated Cinco de Mayo with some Mexican goodies and music. Harrison just loves playing with hats...
As messy as always...
- Harrison is loving the ipad. He loves to play "Barn" and he and Daddy spend lots of time playing "Peek-a-Boo Barn." We are going to miss the ipad over the summer when I have to turn it in. :(
- Mother's Day breakfast was a delicious breakfast of biscuits and gravy...

In April, Bradley's sister and her husband welcomed a new baby into the family. A couple of weeks ago we made the trip to Nashville to meet him, but our visit was cut shut when Harrison came down with the stomach bug. I hate the stomach bug, but it is even worse when you are away from home and you have a little one who doesn't understand what is going on.
Even though we only got to see him for a couple of hours, Ava was instantly smitten and we think he is a doll.
