What to write about today...

I guess I can write about my munchkins today.

Kyler has really struggled this year in 7th grade. I'm really nervous he won't pull his grades up before the end of the year which is only 6 short weeks away. His father I are doing some things to see what the heck is going on with him...but that's a whole other post in itself. For now, I'm thinking positive that things will work out. He isn't doing any sports right now which I think was the best decision he could've made. Baseball is right around the corner, if he decides he wants to play.


Miranda has decided she wants to do cheerleading. How damn cute is that?? Since she's only in 4th grade, of course there isn't anything here in town to cheer for at that age. So we've signed her up to cheer in a league based out of 'the city'. She will cheer for our town's team, for her age group of boys that will play football in the fall. Kyler played football in this league in 6th grade before he played for his school this year. She has her uniform fitting tomorrow night and is so excited for it. Then she has a stunt clinic she is going to participate in on Saturday. Through out the summer there will be other clinics as well as some practices. In August the practices will become mandatory. The football games will be Oct-Nov I believe. Kyler told her he doesn't mind her doing this because at least he can watch the games while she cheers. What a good brother huh? LOL She has sat through how many of his various games for how many years??? hahaha!!

I was one who struggled with grades. Turned out I had a problem with test taking. I could do the work and knew the work. I just got too stressed before and during the test. Maybe, he could have his counselor test him for test anxiety. They could provide alternative tests for him that cover the same material, just formatted in a different way than multiple choice or T/F. Sorry to hear he's struggling. It's frustrating for everyone!

I always wanted to be a cheerleader. So please post about Miranda's journey. That way I can live vicariously through her. Ha ha.

Aww, sounds like they're doing good. Keep up the good work mama. Looks like good choices are being made though, and maybe that will help.

We started "mandatory" study time about 4 years ago and it really helped Stephen. Everyday he has to study or read even if he doesn't have homework to help him get familiar with the material. The only subject he still had trouble with was Spanish...even with a tutor he ended up with a "C". And that was okay with us because we KNOW he tried and gave a genuine effort.

Thankfully he's done with his 3 yrs of foreign language now!
