The Weekly Smile

It’s been just too busy for me to keep up with much lately. with the kids’ activities and my daycare I’m just worn out.

Over the last few weeks, I finally took hold of the school situation with my daughter. I called the dad of the boy who’s been picking on my girl since first grade. Come to find out, the school had never told them. NEVER. As if I was already not unimpressed enough. That led to a second not nice letter to the superintendent which in turn got me to someone who actually oversees the principles. Fortunately I had a phone meeting with my Pastor before I spoke with her-I’m so grateful. Because it would have went very very bad had I not. So from this point on, we are taking it day by day. Just so you know, I prayed before calling the dad, I was not hateful, and he was very open and receptive. We (boys parents) are working through it as a team.

My middle son who has hit puberty, and has adhd and has been struggling with anxiety is making me nuts. At home anyway. I did happen to overhear him telling a classmate that they and others need to get their crap together in class and quit being rude to the teacher and causing trouble for the rest of them. That is exactly how he said it. I’ve always said he’s gonna give it to you straight. See those with adhd have a filter problem. I’m still working on it, but there’s only so much I can do. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 🤷🏼‍♀️ But he’s handsome in his uniform. #88

I took my daughter to do a practice photo shoot and for the most part it was good. The wind was crazy, so while it was difficult it was a learning opportunity. Here’s a few I got from it.

The weather is getting cooler and I’ve been letting the cats have some outside time and they love it.

I have the Spirit of Christmas Fun Run Fundraiser this coming weekend to photograph which is always fun. I really am just honored to be able to be part of the community.

I’m still having a rough time trying to wrap my brain around the loss of our friend. He went from being on the road to recovery to instantaneously taking a turn for the worse and then he was gone. I still don’t quite believe it. There was no goodbye. No hugs, no nothing. I’m at a loss.

    Beautiful photos! I’m so sorry for your loss. Hopefully the issues at school dissolve! We’ve also had a few issues at school already this year 😒 It seems like that’s usually the case, school employees need to remember empathy, I’m grateful to the ones who do!

    Death is always hard – even if you do get to say goodbye. But your daughter is beautiful. And you son, even though in puberty, has a good head on his shoulders. You are doing something right mom! Great pictures.
