I can't believe all that this year has brought our way:-) Our oldest has managed to survive middle school and so have we. It really shouldn't be called middle school but rather the three years of adolescent hell for the kids, the parents and the staff that works there. It is in my opinion the three most difficult years of school life. Socially, physically and emotionally awkward. During the course of these three years my child has morphed back and forth between my sweet child and moody teenager about ten times...thankfully that seems to have leveled out and he has decided to stay at moody teenager who on occasion is nice to us all;-) Seriously though I am so proud of him...he has came through this stage of his life with flying colors and is moving onto to high school (this would be where the feeling old part comes in). Here he is ready for his end of the year 8th grade formal....I realize I am partial but he is one awesome kid!!!
This has been a big year for our second oldest. Blondie had quite that the crappy 2014 so we are very happy that 2015 has been much easier on him. He is our old soul...he loves being at the barn with his horses and really doesn't care if he ever does anything else. He will be starting third grade!!! That just blows my mind but I am so proud of how far he has come. He isn't really a school fan;-)
