Boarding School

Okay, I have now decided to begin researching boarding schools. Why? Well this weekend we took 25 band students to Wild Adventures. 23 of these students were 7th and 8th graders. Should I say anymore? OMG!!! They just about made me crazy. Between the drama of the girls and the one couple that couldn't seem to stay apart. The girls were constantly at each others throats and fussing, to the point we had to reshuffle walking around groups. None of this, mind you, bothered my husband. If it did he did not show it. However it bothered me enough for the both of us. Really I can't stand the blatant disobiedence, the attitude, and the total lack of respect. 99.9% of this came from girls. There was only one boy who was part of the problem. I think Grace can hang it up hoping for a sister. Needless to say we won't be going on any more trips with Jim.

I also need to update our principal status. The superintendent has decided to honor our principal's request to stay at Jim's school. Yeah!!! So we have him for at least another year.

To tell you about our fun this weekend. My two big kids are real rollercoaster junkies. They rode anything they were big enough for. Blake rode the Cheetah which has some amazing drops and the Hangman which turns you upside down and such. Grace liked Bug Out which makes you think you are going over the edge way up high. Now Samuel was a sight! He would ride the couple of rollercoasters he was big enough for, but I had to hold his hands up. Overall we had a great weekend. I loved riding the rides with my kiddos and just spending time together.

So, your kids had a good time, at least.

And, girls with their drama. Wait until your boys start dating. Then, you'll really get a close up look at girls and drama. ;
