Been a While

I know I have not been around in a while I have been working at the Big E, which is a local fair in my area. I will write more about the Big E later.

Right now I am so tired I can not think. We only have 2 days left of the fair and it is going to rain for at least one of those days. I will not be there because I will be at a Radio Disney event, which I am very excited about.

Twilight Saga

I started reading this book mainly because I love to read and wanted something different.

Well let me tell you I LOVED these books. I read all 4 of them within 1 week and thought that they were great. I loved the characters and what she does with vampires. She takes some of the myths we think of and changes them.

I understand that these books were written for teens and when my Brother-in-law found out I was reading them he was like, "So you don't really need to think when you read them" he likes to read books were you need a dictionary just so you can get through them. I like to read for the enjoyment of reading.

So if you get the chance and you are looking for something fun and different to read try the TWILIGHT SAGA by STEPHENIE MEYER.

On a sad note about these books. Stephenie was going to right a book from Edward's perspective and sadly she is not. As least not right now. Some how the rough draft of the book ended up on the Internet and people were able to read it in its unfinished version. This makes me very angry because not only did they take away her rights as an author, they also took away our rights as a reader.

Now instead of getting another great book from her and seeing it from another point of view, we now have to wait. Sure I can read it over the Internet if I want, she even has it on her own website. I read the first 2 pages from her website and had to stop. The book sounds like it will be amazing and I am hoping someday she will be able to finish it.

So I want to thank Stephenie Meyer for a great series. I can not wait to see what else you write.


We made it through our first few weeks of school and things are going well.

Jared is in middle school and I can not believe this. It seems like just yesterday I was taking him to his first day of kindergarten and he was afraid he would not have any friends. Now his voice is changing and he is becoming more like his father every day. He is mouthy and stubborn so we have lots of fun banging our heads together just to get homework done. He is also getting up at 6:00 am so he is a bear most days and I become a bear if I don't sleep so he and I will have to try very hard not to be bears at the same time.

He is very excited about his first dance and he really seems to be enjoying school.
Devon is in forth grade this year and although he love his teacher I think there are some kids he could do with out. He is a perfectionist and he tries very hard to make sure everything is neat and exact. So he has already had 2 melt downs because he forgot his homework at school. At this rate he will be crying more then laughing this school year. He has also started the REACH program this year. I am hoping that this will challenge him so he is getting the most out of school.

Jordan is loving school, who won't when they are in 1st grade. She has the same teacher as Devon and she is very proud of that. She loves to learn and is still amazed at all the new things out there. She is growing so fast I can not believe that she is my baby because she is not a baby anymore.

Hopefully the school year will be a great one. I know that it is going to fly by and before we know it it will be over. I am going to try and enjoy this year and spend lots of time with the kids.
