so easy to forget...

When life gets busy, it's so easy for me to forget LJ is here. Facebook is so much easier to access and follow and post, but doesn't really give much substance. Eh... It is what it is, though.

Sophie has graduated kindergarten. She was quite proud of herself, as she should be. B and I both were very proud of her as well. We received her Bracken scores within the last week or two and it's basically set her at two years ahead of her age, which isn't surprising knowing how she thinks. She's started reading bigger books, including the American Girl books and Freckle Juice.

We've moved her into a new school since her previous school only went up through kindergarten. I would have kept her at Primrose for the summer so she could enjoy summer camp (part of me still wishes we had, too) but we're moving her to a Montessori style school and we wanted to get her a little used to the school prior to academics starting in August. I don't think she would have had any issues adjusting looking back, but hindsight and all that...

She's starting to develop a bit of an attitude, which scares me. I mean, she's only six years old! I think some of that is just age, some of that is other kids, some of that is us, and some of that is lack of nap. We're still trying to figure out consequences that work the best. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get there. She really is such an amazing kid.

Work is work. I still love my job, even through random drama and such. It keeps me busy, is challenging, and pays well, and I enjoy the people I work with. I've been given more projects that keep my busy and I couldn't be happier, really. It feels good to want to go to work every day.

And with that... I'm spent. My life is consumed by family and work. Scentsy has taken a back seat, but that's ok. I still love it but just have realized it's ok to not devote every waking minute to it. I think family is so much more important than that. This is one of the main reasons I'm not online much. Family is always the most important thing.

Oh, and Pinterest. It is a total time sapper, but so useful! I actually use many of my pins, too. We've tried lots of recipes, have made a few crafts, and tried a few household hints. There's so much I want to try...

I saw the pictures on Facebook and Sophie is incredible! I hope she gets the challenges she needs at the new school to keep her interested in learning.
