Back to School

It is that time of year again and I am a little late on getting this up. The kids started back to school over a week ago. It was a rude awakening with a hard adjustment from staying up all night and sleeping all day (one of the joys of having older kids).
Noah is in sixth grade this year and Harley is in seventh. They both are loving it so far and can hardly stand waiting to get their laptops. Noah enjoys having many teachers and getting to move a lot more often. He is making new friends and getting to know his second cousin Kody Farley a lot better (they hang out and eat lunch together). Let's hope the good year keeps going. He is currently going to ABQ once a month, but if he continues to do well he will start staggering that off to every couple of months. This year he also will be participating in Hip Hop class and two Hip Hop competition pieces. We are also looking in to gymnastics (or gnastics as he puts it). He is also in Scouts.  Harley is loving the fact of being back with all her friends and can only describe school as a love hate relationship (love the social, hate the work). She seems to be much happier and at peace this year. She will be participating in ballet, jazz, lyrical, private lessons and performance group. She also has mutual one night a week. We are busy and happy around here.
