Wow, I've been neglecting this..

No LO for you this time, sorry.

A LOT has happened in the two months since I came around this way last... mainly my job taking every last ounce of free time I had away (and my sanity some days like today). While I DO love it, it's tiring some days and I come home wanting nothing more than a comfy spot on the couch with dinner waiting on me, which I get WAY more often than I deserve.

In major news (well, for us anyway) I FINALLY got the school board to listen to me and we're accelerating Connor through Kindergarten.. What's that mean? Well, he's cursed with a birthday 8 days after the cutoff, but blessed with a reading level that's FOUR grades over where he should be and a math level that's three grades higher than he should be. PLUS an IQ in the 140s. SO we had his IEP meeting yesterday with various teachers, principals, three of his four parents and the special ed. coordinator with the district and majority ruled to move him past K-5 next year to the second start to the right and straight on into first grade. In the words of his daddy "if he was born a week earlier, we wouldn't be having this conversation" and he was right, but we did it, they finally realized my child's smarter than the average bear. PLUS his "pull out" gifted teacher taught me third grade and she's WONDERFUL so I'm really excited about that.

I haven't really scrapped anything since Christmas or so, I'm dying to do Connor's field trip to the zoo, it's coming shortly, but it might have to wait until my life calms down some. I get about one day off every week and a half to two weeks or so and that's for errands I can't get done during the week, so scrapping's been left behind.. I AM keeping up with my pictures, just not scrapping them.

Speaking of pictures... my dream of my own studio is slowly -ever so slowly- coming to life. The company's been named, we just haven't gotten the license for the name yet, my hubby is - as I type- getting a refresher course in Flash so he can make my website and the logo is pretty much done... when the big reveal gets here, I'll link it up!!

I do have a flickr for the time being: so go take a look over there and tell me what you think!

Right now, it's time for bed, so I'm going to get as horizontal as I possibly can and crash out now.

thanks for reading!
