Return of normality and a family truce!

OK OK i have been really slack lately! But i have been doing my own studies, working, assisting with homework, listening intently to Davids hourly birthday wish list updates and the household chores!
The first week back at school has nearly come to an end. All 3 kids are really happy and are doing well!
Becky is getting merits left right and centre from her new school. Rachel is having an audtion for the gifted singers choir at school. And David..well he surprised me the most! This time last year i was told that he had the reading age of a 5 year old....he worked really hard last year..he must have! His teacher tested him this week and now a week shy of being 9 he is a free reader! He can read any book in the school library and is off the reading programme! I am so proud of him! His current book is by Sandy Toksvig, called Hitlers Canary. He is really enjoying it!

And to top it all off, when i thought my youngest two would be fighting each other for years to come..a truce has arrived! No words needed.... If Becky bends down to his level to talk to him...this is what she gets.....

Awwww! Hurray Truce! Sounds like the school year is off to a successful start--what awesome news about David's reading! Sounds like a great mom helped make some great progress last year!
Blessings!

I am finally getting around to visiting blogs! I am so far behind!!
Glad to hear that the kids all had a good first week of school. I can't get over how old they all look! Extra "YEAH" for David on his reading!!! I had to be in a special reading class in second & third grade, but by the time I was in 5th I was one of the top readers in class and still love to ready today. :) I know he worked hard to get to where he is today, and I know Mummy had lot to do with it too :) WAY to go Mum!!

A truce! So there is hope of that some day? :) The pictures of Becky & David are so sweet.

Came over to your site from Octamom my good friend. I loved your post today. My two girls were not close when they were little but in high school became closer. Now at 20 and 23 they are very close, hang out together socially and call often. What could be better than seeing that bonding!!
Congrats...you are experiencing a real gift!
