School's almost out

I am shocked at how quickly the 2008-2009 school year has gone. I can't believe Nicholas will be in 7th grade next year. He was inducted in the National Junior Honor Society this past week. He also tried out for symphonic band for next year, we won't know until during the summer whether he made it or not. Next year will be a busy year for sure. We are thinking of putting Daphne back in school in the fall and starting her out in 4th grade again and also at a different school. It has not been decided but we are thinking on it. Otherwise she is excited about summer too and going swimming.

Daph and I have been playing with resin lately, we have been making all sorts of goodies and fun things with it. I'll post pics later.

Tomorrow we start dog training classes as Sadie needs some leash training in a major way. I hope she does well. We took her out for a long walk today and took her to a field and let her run wild, she loved it. What was so funny was a bird for some reason started to dive bomb her. Sadie would run by and the bird would swoop down and chirp at her. I wish I had a video camera for that one. Sadie didn't seemed bothered by it, it was just a bird. lol

I know, I'm behind on catching up on my shows but I finished watching The Celebrity Apprentice and was so disappointed that Joan Rivers won. I would never have wasted my time watching it if I had only known. What a set up and rigged show. We also watched Lost last week and that was pretty good, very exiciting ending. I can't wait for next season. I am all caught up now. Harpers Island still has several episodes to go and I like that one, I can't figure out who the killer is on that show.

Okay, I have a gripe today. People who drive cars to fast in neighborhoods just irritate me to no end. Daph and I were out walking and I see this man in a white Mustang going at least 45mph down a 30mph street. He kept going back and forth and when I was at the end of the street and I yelled at him to slow down. I know lots of kids play around here and sometimes they do run out in the street. Is he just waiting till he hits a kid one day? argh!!
Okay, rant over.

We also got some guinea pigs, a few weeks ago actually. First we bought one at Petsmart and it died within 4 days, we were all so heartbroken. The kids wanted another one so we got from a local pet store who only gets one in at a time and so far so good. We have 2 girl guinea pigs and they are so fun, more than I expected.

Time to watch WipeOut with the kiddos. Bye for now.

I can't stand people who drive fast in residential areas either. It is so irresponsible and with 4 little kids it freaks me out. Good luck deciding what to do about school. And your new pets sound like a lot of fun!
