running a bit behind the 8 ball

With school just starting, I’m running a bit behind the 8 ball this week. And to be honest it’s looking like I’m not going to get much work done…well not until we get Ava Blu gets into a routine, including an after school program. She gets out of class at 2:15 and on Wednesdays they have early dismissal. As if 2:15 wasn’t early enough!!

We’re waiting for things to shake out a little bit more and my fingers are crossed that she’ll be able to get into the rec center after school program. It’s the same place where she went to camp this summer and right now we’re on the wait list :( We do have a plan B, but we can’t wait too long to make that decision. I would hate for it to fill up too.

And then there’s also coordinating Spanish Class, TheaterLab, Gymnastics. This is all new to us. And ALL this coordinating is a bit overwhelming and quite frankly a lot of work!!


For homework this week Ava Blu needed to learn how to tie her shoes. Now I know how to tie shoes, but how do I teach it!? It’s become so second nature that I don’t even think about it when I’m doing it. All I can say is Thank-goodness for the internet and youtube!!! I did a little search and it turned up this really COOL and super EASY way to do it.

So we both learned how to do it at the same time!! She totally got a kick out of that :-)
