It’s been so long, I don’t even know where to start. I never planned on taking a blogging hiatus, and yet… here I am, writing for the first time in ages. The truth is, I am not even sure what led me back here in the first place. Life has been crazy hectic and I guess I just lost the thing I did for me. Maybe I am searching for this time again, maybe I need the therapy that writing provides, and just maybe I miss all of my bloggy friends who may or may not still be out there. Maybe.. It is a little of all of the above.
This blog started because I was losing myself. I needed a release on everything I was feeling. I needed to hear from other’s that they were going through the same thing. I guess, I stopped needing that for a while. I don’t know. I’m not even sure if I am any good anymore. Yeah.. I’m whining a little and a little rusty. Keep scrolling if you don’t want to read, I’ll understand!
School starts on Monday, and I just cannot believe it! Where has the Summer gone? I will tell you, dedicated to my Master’s degree that’s where! Graduate school has sucked big time this Summer, and the only good thing I can say, is I passed and with A’s in both classes! I have never spent so much time on writing research papers ever!
This year we have a 5th grader, 3rd grader, and kindergartener! I mean.. I’m trying just typing this! Monday is going to be a mess, and this momma is going to be crying the big ugly cry tears after school drop off! Never gets easier, ever! How is it I have three school aged children? Time needs to slow down a little please.
We met the teachers on Thursay and the Kindergartner is blessed with the same teacher the oldest had when she started Kindergarten. We prayed and hoped he he would get her and he did! She is such a special teacher, and we are so thankful! The oldest seems to have a great teacher and i am really impressed! Now, the 3rd grader, jury is still out on that teacher. Time will tell i guess.
The truth is, we are blessed she is going to the third grade and evey year is a struggle. The more years we are in the public school system, the more i learn how ill equipped the school system is to handle kids who have ADHD or any other disability. These standardized curricuum and ways of learning are not the best for every kid. Last year, it wasn’t until January we decided to get her a tutor that truly made a difference.The medicatins help and has done wonders for her, but she still needs a creative learning environment. My prayer this year, is that we have teachers who will teach each of our children to his or her individual needs and create a fun, and safe learning environment. We have been blessed with some awesome teachers, and hope we have just as awesome teachers this year!
Okay, that’s all i have for now! Maybe i will write again and turn this back into a routine!
