Only Three More Weeks!

Only three more weeks and school is OUT for the summer! I think I am more excited then the boys are. It has been a long school year for me too. Elijah will be going into the fifth grade and to a new school next year. Jacob will be in the tenth grade and his second year of ROTC. I went with him to his award's banquet last night. He was recognized for the ribbons he earned first semester and he said he has earned several more ribbons for this current semester. He really likes ROTC and it was a fun and informative night last night.

We really aren't doing much this summer. We have several doctor's appointments for the summer, including the endocronologsit and the audiologist. I want to have Elijah's MAPs checked to be sure his left one is mapped correctly and try to figure out why he lets it dangle so much. We may take a trip to Fredricksburg for a few days and then go and see my sister who lives near San Antonio. Jacob and Elijah really enjoyed going there a few years ago! I may also try to have a garage sale.

Before you know it, the time will come for school again. What is everyone else doing this summer?
