What plans lie ahead for May

Your kid comes home and says s/he wants to be homeschooled.  When you ask why she says because she doesn't like going to school anymore..  What do you do/say.....

If you were granted one wish what would it be

Mother's Day, Duh, I forgot!  I plan to keep my feet up that whole day, Lol.

Thank you thardy and I wish her needs were that simple. But I'm a huge advocate for her education and needs and school is pretty aware of where my defenses lie.

What plans lie ahead for May

Last day of school for the kids & me, pool opens.

Sucks to be you.

That my sister lived closer. My kids miss their cousins desperately.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

1.  May is always the busiest--dd1 bridging to Ambassador level in Girl Scouts.  Rehearsal/Recital weekend--busy busy!  Dd1 is in 3 classes & is doing 4 dances in the recital.  Dd2 is in one class, one dance.  My nephew is graduating.  My aunt is visiting to see the dancing & graduating.  School ends, so we'll get into summer mode.  I'm really planning on the snow to melt, it's getting ridiculous here.

2. There'd be plenty of discussion to see if it was a real problem or just a bad day.  If was a huge problem we'd try to help fix it.  Going to homeschooling to do that probably be unlikely.  Dd1 has actually expressed interest in going to a boarding school--not going to happen!

3.  5 billion dollars sounds about right.

OH yeah! The pool opens!

 

And you could just move closer to your sister ... hint hint.

5K with DD3  Sat morning. Ball game Sat night.   DDs coming for dinner on Sun. 

Memorial Weekends, 2nd Annual BBQ at a veterans organization we are active in, really looking forward to it, we missed it last year because we were on vacaton.

Tomorrow DH has appointment with oncologist.  Mid month DD1 has appointment with plastic surgeon and her weekly chemo treatments start.

We may make a trip up to Dallas to meet with a friend who lives in OK. When we met him 25 years ago he was a young lieutenant straight out of Officer's Training School. Now he is a colonel. Hope to meet up before he leaves to his next assignment later this year. 

At this point homeschooling is N/A.  But my kids would have never said that to me anyway. 

That cancer did not exist.

"Dd1 has actually expressed interest in going to a boarding school--not going to happen!" --------- Really? I offered dd that option several times. She had no interest in going, it turned out, but I wanted her to understand that she was not obliged to stay home for our sakes.
