The heat should have been a dead giveaway that summer was here. Maybe I was trying to ignore it? Hoping it would disapear in a portal and spring would exist again in North Carolina? No such luck. Spring fled from this state years ago. If anyone knows where it is, please let me know. Tell Spring how much I miss her and want her back.
The kids aren't thrilled with summer either. For my Princess, it means that we go back to the 60/40 split. Which is confusing. For the Drama Tween, it means she's still ground for the Facebook debacle. The debacle where she had a secret FB account for 5 months, with the help of a neighbor. She's now banned from all electronics. To see the eyeroll when you yell at her to drop her brothers Leappad... It's majestic. The majestic eyeroll of scorn! I'll take it as a badge of honor. If you're not rolling your eyes, I'm screwing something up.
Both the girls were accepted into the brand new charter school here. I was screaming with glee over the fact that they no longer have to attend school in this district anymore. I think we have the worst district in the state. Or at least Tweens is the worst school. With a principal who tells me that a child threatening to physically harm my daughter is protected by freedom of speech, who can blame me for thinking that?
The Demanding Prince is demanding as always. It's worth it though, when he smiles, hugs you, and kisses you. His sisters adore him more every day, and that's something that keeps a smile on my face. For now. One day, he'll become that annoying little brother, but for now, he's sweetness and love.
Me? I'm just counting down the days to the Disney trip.
