Keeping Up With...Family (School Updates)

I skipped this update last week because I honestly didn't have anything to write about.  We did our normal routine then last weekend we did chores around the house all weekend.  Our weekends are jam packed for the rest of the month and now June is starting to fill up as well.  So we used our one free weekend to do a bunch of stuff around the house.  We also relaxed because the month of May is going to be a marathon!

This past week was super busy with teacher appreciation at AJ and Daniel's school.  They spent the week dressing up with different themes, bringing in gifts for the teachers and telling them how much they appreciate all they did this year.  Since I volunteer on the PTO Board, I was very busy as well this week between making and buying things and volunteering in the school.  But it's all worth it.  Teachers do an amazing job and don't always get the credit (not to mention the pay) that they deserve!
Hats off! to our wonderful teachers
In the midst of this craziness, I finally finished all of the paperwork and officially registered Zak for preschool next year.  He will go to a different school than Daniel did because I wanted to find an afternoon program for him to make our mornings a little bit easier.  He will go two days each week for about 2 1/2 hours.  I alternate between excited to have some time to myself and upset that my baby is growing up.  He's excited and can't wait to start!!

And as if that wasn't enough excitement, Zak also started back at ice skating lessons.  We will be doing the parent and child class at least through the summer, probably the fall as well.  Zak really wants to learn how to ice skate and eventually play hockey like his big brother.  He had a bit of a rocky start but then he found his footing and by the end he was skating on his own!  He only did a few minutes without my help, but that was way better than last session.  I love doing the lessons with him!!
So that's what kept us busy all through last week!  The big boys have just under 3 weeks left of school, then we have about 10 weeks off for the summer before we start with all 3 boys in 3 different schools.  Should be an interesting year next year for all of us!
