I really haven't fallen off the face of the earth!

What can I say except I'm sorry! I'm sorry I  haven't blogged in so long!!!!

The beginning of the year, both at school and with my own two kids, has been overwhelming.
In fact right now I should be putting grades into the grade book but I thought I needed to write a quick blog post to let you know I am still alive and kicking! :)

This coming week will be our 6th week in school.  Most of my students are adjusting to our routines and procedures, but as you know there are those few that still need some reminders every ten seconds every once in awhile.  I love my class and know we will have an awesome year!

My daughter is a senior this year and my son is a freshman.  My daughter goes to the high school closest to our house and has her own car so its really convenient. She is busy in school with not only academics but she is Secretary of Student Council,  an officer for Varsity choir, etc.  My son, on the other hand, doesn't drive yet and goes to a high school (Health Careers) that is about 10 miles away in the medical center.  10 miles doesn't seem that far away but as I said the school is in the medical center and the traffic is horrendous!  It takes 50 minutes on the school bus and about 25 minutes if by chance we can drive him.  Of course the school is the opposite direction where my school is.  Anywho, we make it work but it took us a while to get our own routines down.
On a side note my son Jake has his first High School golf tournament tomorrow!  WooHoo! Go Jake Go!

Did you notice my awesome "Melonheadz Me"? I love it!  Nikki got me!  I always have sunglasses on my head and a coffee in my hands and of course the frogs!   Don't you just love it?  I sure do!   Go check out her blog and see her incredible clipart or get a Melonheadz of your very own by visiting http://melonheadzillustrating.blogspot.com/.   Tell her Lorraine from Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies sent ya!

Now to go put in those grades.  I plan to start leaving most of my work at school from now on so I can dedicate more time to my blog. I promise to to leave you hanging again. :)

Hope your year is off to a great start!
