Manic Mom turns 1#

What a week!!!
*First Skylar and I celebrated our Birthday on the 7th. We had a nice quiet Birthday at home. Last year was anything but quiet. Skylar surprised me with a Birthday party.
*This time last year was when I began blogging. Wow, it's been a year already, can't believe it. I guess I should celebrate a Blog Birthday too. Manic Mom is a year old!!!
*Skylar had friends stay over for the weekend and Mahala went to six flags with the Girl Scouts.
*Mother's Day was wonderful- I had seafood....been craving that for weeks.
*This week Thanh has been out of town for work. It's been lonely without him at home, but we also have been so busy.
*The kids dragged themselves through Star testing this week, today was the last day. Thank you Lord.
*Now we're cleaning up and trying to make the house look nice for Thanh. When he comes home he will be surprised that Mahala & Skylar did the front and side yard for him. It no longer looks like something from the Discovery channel.
*Summer is almost here, which means I can smell the sunscreen and taste the homemade lemonade. It also means more writing for me. I sent out a few letters last week to some local writers. I would like to find an agent that is in my neck of the woods, but I'm not sure how important that really is. Right now I'm picking out some key scriptures that I found important growing up. A few stick out as favorites and some my survival nets.
*Tomorrow we start our week of school work now that testing is finally over. Poor kids....I'm going to still squeeze in a good 4 days of work into the next 2 days. We will see if it gets done. We may need Saturday too.
*Thanh is here and all the kids are screamin'. Better help Dad out!!
