More update

The kids started school in August. They usually start in July but we decided to pull them from their public school and put them in a charter school. It is a little trek for them to school everyday. If they ride the bus which they sometimes do to school but ride everyday home from school, it is about an hour ride for them. But they have been good sports. They were not too excited at first to venture a new school and have a limited ward robe to school. But I think they warmed up to the idea after a while. There were some friends that were going to embark on this new adventure as well so they jumped in with both feet. They all have great teachers and seem to be doing well. It is a struggle every night to get Tatum to do her homework. It takes between 2 to 4 hours every night because of the constant battle. If any one has any ideas on how to get her to just "do it" it would be greatly appreciated. We tried the marble jar (she got marbles if she did it when asked once and when it was full she would get to go shopping) that did not work. She just refuses to do it. They are getting to learn Spanish at this school. Tatum thinks it is funny to ask me things and me not be able to understand what she is saying. I did take a picture the first day of school but unfortunately I am a little like the commercial where the pictures stay on the camera for ever. I will have to get it on my lap top so I can post it. More to come.

I am glad they like their new school. Our school went to uniforms last year and we love it! As parents AND as teachers. Good luck with the homework, we always just told our kids they were going to have to support a family someday and would have to make it into college! Ha-ha!
