Changes and adjustments...and sad mom heart

This is a big year. We knew a year of change, adjustment, and flexibility.
The decision to move Jack from one school district to another, so he can eventually attend high school where Ken teaches, seemed like an easy one.
Jack has been with me, at our awesome family-feeling school for 7 years.
Yesterday, he moved to a 5-8 school as a 7th grader. He doesn't know a single face. New campus, new routines, new expectations. New friends.
My heart is heavy. As my confident as happy kid is anxious and teary about the one place he's always felt good.
In 2 weeks, he will be in his groove. 
Joining lunch clubs and making more friends. 
Until that happens.
Middle school is hard. 
For him and my mama heart.

Keep your head up, my son.
We know you will continue to soar and thrive, and will do whatever we can to get you there.

2nd grade...and a new normal

Again, this blog is a sad neglected space...
But, I can't seem to just quit.
Molly started 2nd grade at my school....Here she is with her best friend
and his little sister.
Someone is missing from these pics.
Jack will be starting 7th grade in Tustin and has a few more weeks
of summer to enjoy. I am still adjusting to not having him with me.
I will continue my new position in the STEAM Lab.
Happy 2015-1016!

spring break

Well, this poor blog. 
I still think about maybe it's time to just shut it down...
I feel like with Facebook and Instagram, things are "out there" enough.

Well, until I officially change my mind...

The kids are I were on Spring Break this week. 
Our last break before Jack heads to middle school.

We did a lot this week...
1- spa day for me
2- Disneyland
3- sleepover for Jack here with two buddies (belated b-day)
4- Legoland (with Jack's friends)
5- park with friends
6- tidepools and beach

My kids had never been to the tide pools and so I figured why not...

This picture sums up our week.

we ended our morning in Newport and had lunch at Rubys on the pier

Now, there are 9 weeks left of school.
Which leaves me with every emotion possible. 
Jack's last year with us at Richman....
