Let me try this again

It has been really long time since I have posted anything on here or even checked any blogs. But I think this might be a good thing for me to do from time to time.

My household has changed a lot since I was last on here. Shawn and I broke up and him and Natalea moved out. Kirsten is still living with her mom but close to us. Kylea has gotten into a lot of trouble and is locked up in a state facility for juveniles. I hope the program they have in place will help her. Devin is on the sports fast track. Just finished football and is now in wrestling. He is still doing Karate and will be starting an after school skateboarding program.

So smaller household but still busy busy.

Update for the day

Kylea has been playing tea party with Natalea this evening and that is after she cleaned all the kids shoes.

conversations over fruit

Devin "Wouldn't it be cool if Santa Claus fell through our roof right now?"

Natalea "Yeah"

Ok, now back to work for me.

So this is what we did last Friday when we were bored. I think we will be doing this more often.

This is just the first pass and not the final edit, but it looks great!

For the first time ever, a tie!

Kylea and another girl both tied for the win of the new school design. So the school decided to combine the two images since they were of similar style. We are all very excited about it.
Guess I am going to have to follow through on my deal with her. If she gets good a drawing and writing her letters I would get her spray pant and take her to places where she can graffiti. Anyone know of any places where it is legal to spray paint?

Open house tonight

But for two kids in the same school. Natalea for Kinder and Devin for 3rd grade.

I sent emails out to both teachers to try to figure out how it will work tonight. Shawn has to work so it will just be me. And I refuse to let Natalea's mom take her to her class without me.

So no matter what, things will be interesting tonight. Wish me luck.

Kylea in the finals!

All the kids in art class for Kylea's middle school were asked to submit a design for the schools new shirts. Right before Kylea switched out of Art class she submitted her design.

She drew it out and then had Shawn put it in photoshop so he could email it over to her teacher. The school is now down to 10 submissions and Kylea's is one of them!!!

I will update everyone once I here the results, but win or not it is still way cool to make it in the finals.
