Race Change

I was digging through old photos for a school project Mini Me had. A friend of ours was over and flipped through with me.

When he came to the top photo, he asked who the "Arab" family was. I told him it was me and my older siblings. When he got to the bottom photo, he asked how it was possible for us all to change race to become "Spanish."

Never really looked at it like that. But he kinda has a point....

It's Worth It

I LOVE my job!!! That said, sometimes my job as an admissions and marketing director can be frustrating, heart-breaking and thankless. There are times when I work really hard for a family to attend our school and it just doesn't happen.

The other day, one of our students gave me this drawing. This makes it all worth it.

Ready for Swim Meet!

My kids work really hard at swimming. 2 hours/day, 4-5 days/week. They swim, do their homework and don't complain. They LOVE swimming and get mad when they can't go to practice.

All ready for their first swim meet of the year!!!

One of These Days

One of these days, I'm going to have enough time to blog. Right now, my days are consumed with work, taking our kids to swim practice, family dinners, hours spent helping my kids with their home work, musical instrument practice, therapy, and reading before they get ready for bed. This year, we have had to extend bed time by an hour to get it all fit in each evening. By the time I'm done that, I am exhausted. Blogging is not high on my priority list. But I really enjoy it so I should make more time for it. And make more time for reading, yoga, and time with my dearly beloved.
