Wow, it really has been forever since I posted.  I even let my paid account expire and now I don't have all my icons.  I never even knew I cared that much about my icons, but now they are gone and I care deeply!

Between the PTA and grad school, life has been keeping me busy.  Erik has one more week of school and I have one more PTA newsletter to write, then it will be me and the kids alone all summer.  I only have Erik signed up for one camp.  I don't have Elsa signed up for any because she is a homebody who doesn't like new places.  I hope I'm not making a huge mistake.  In about three weeks I'll be begging someone, anyone, to take these kids off my hands for a few hours so I can get my homework done.

I got a Fit Bit a couple of weeks ago and it has increased my movement because I am super competitive.  I didn't want to get one because I was afraid it would publically show what a fat, lazy person I am.  I was quite shocked to see that I am more active than a lot of the skinny people I know!  My problem has never been excercise.  It's always been food intake.  I love food.  Yum yum.

Erik bought a FitBit with his allowance and it arrived this afternoon.  He's going nuts with it--he's had it for two hours and has already hit the goal of 10,000 steps.  I think it will be good for him to have this to get him a little more active, though I am sure the shine will wear off sooner rather than later.

Erik has been playing goalie for the last couple of seasons.  Mike put him in goalie clinics all winter so he's actually pretty decent at it!  His team had 7 wins, 1 loss for the season.  The games are often not even that fun because his team totally annihalates the other team. They usually outscore the other team by at least 6 points.  The worst was 13-0.  It's fun to win, but hard to watch the other team get thumped so hard.

Elsa has been taking her incoming kindergarten summer homework very seriously.  It's amazing!  I am use to endless, hours-long fights about homework.  If Erik touches pencil to paper I call it a win, nevermind the quality.  Elsa, on the other hand, wants her work to be perfect and spent almost an hour doing her homework tonight: "draw a picture of something you did today."  She was very upset because she had no idea how to draw her little friend's black braids. She was not pleased with my solution (Do the best you can) and wanted to learn real technique.  I can barely draw a stick figure so I'm not the person to ask.

We went to a birthday party yesterday that was a total fiasco.  I think I need to write a birthday party handbook and widely distribute it.  No one would read it or listen to my advice.  No one cares.  But I know everything and could help everyone acheive cosmic perfection.  I'm such an INTJ. 

Ok, gotta get Erik to bed.  Maybe I'll write more later.  I miss LJ!
