whew! how are you? i'm good, thank you.

so i told you a funny about the youngest. now, one on the girl.
she's 6 and in the first grade. in her school there is a color behavior chart. at the end of the day, you end on a color accordingly. they begin every day on green and move up to purple and then blue for good behavior, or down to yellow, orange, and red for being naughty. every day after school they (my 6 & 4 yr olds) climb in the suburban all excited telling me how they day went. on this day, Xavier was on blue and very excited about it. Elizabeth was only green. so she started to whine and complain about how she "never gets to move to blue!" so Xavier over and over is singing "i was on blue". Elizabeth turns to him with fire in her eyes "YOU. ARE. NOT. HELPING!" he he heee oh man, i laughed out loud!

well, had a conference at the school today with my oldest's teacher. egads. that was no fun. but i believe we got a lot worked out and have high hope that things will get better....

Next time you're found, with your chin on the ground
There's a lot to be learned, so look around
Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant?
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant.
But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes
So any time you're gettin' low'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant.
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant
When troubles call, and your back's to the wall
There's a lot to be learned, that wall could fall.
Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam.
No one could make that ram, scram.
He kept buttin' that dam'
Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes
So any time you're feelin' bad'stead of feelin' sad
Just remember that ram.
Oops! there goes a billion kilowatt dam.
All problems are just a toy balloon
They'll be bursted soon.
They're just bound to go, "pop".
Oops! there goes another problem
