missing my blog

I have been consumed by my Art 101 class and it is kicking my "hinny"! ( Your vocabulary tends to change when you have little ones!)
Since this is an online course I'm teaching and it started this week I have been overloaded with questions from my students. I fear that if this goes on, I may be growing cob-webs in on my blog site! Hopefully this is just the first frenzy of the beginning of school. Lets hope!
Tomorrow I have a full day to myself. School starts for my little ones and its the first time I will have basically 9 - 2 to myself. Its a little bitter sweet because I feel like the girls have grown up faster than I had planned. Since Quaid was a "singleton", (that's multiple-mother talk for a child that is not a twin or triplet) I naturally spent more one on one time with him when he was little. He also tends to still be attached to me even though he is going on 8 now. Literally some days he hangs onto my leg in jest when I have to go do something. Talk about a Mama's boy! He asks me all time if I would just home school him so he can stay home with me. ( He also tends to wear me out quit quickly because he has ADD and likes to talk ALOT!) Anyways, I'm sure tomorrow I will be a little teary-eyed when my two little matching kindergartners go into to school. They are a funny pair and everyone knows them when they walk into school because they are very bouncy. Ok..enough about my kids...
I do plan to spend the day cleaning my studio and getting ready for the next batch of shows coming up.
I need to clean because I can't seem to find my camera anywhere!( Its most likely lost here on the desk under all my Art History notes!)
Stay tuned....

Hey Jen, You must find that camera to take a picture of your girls going to school! My six year old, Evelyn just started first grade this week, at our Montessori School. It's all very exciting. Hang in there!

Hey Micheal!
I could not find digital camera so I had took my regular camera. Very cute day.
Is Evelyn going to the same Montessori as Mark Peters kids? I wish we had a Montessori here, it is great program!
Take care, Jen

Laura,
Wait till Jud gets to be Quaid's size and wants to give you a hug. I get knocked over daily! You all will do good in Blowing Rock. I've had two good shows there. I have lots of other things in Sept and Oct around here so I will not be joining you. Good Luck! Jen

Yes Evelyn and Lillian go to the Spruce Pine Montessori with Wren and Sadie Peters. We're VERY lucky to have the school here, started by awise group of parents about 30 years ago here. Evelynis in the first grade and lillian is in her third year of preschool.
Have a good one!
