It's Spring time, and around here, that means it's spring clear out time! We are getting ready for (another) move. Despite our best plans to stay in this house all 4 yrs. of med school, nobody mentioned to our rental company our desires to stay here with a resonable rent, so alas we begin the spring clear out to get ready. we will move in july across town to a place half the size of our current residence. CLS has already caught the bug and it seems that everytime i turn around she is dumping something else in the trashcan... today it was sippy cups, socks, and the dinner she didn't want. In big news... I finally weaned her!! this is a huge accomplishment and to celebrate, she slept through the night last night. We aer over joyed, to say the least!
Jo turned 9 earlier this month! I did wrap his present in candy can wrapping paper left over from the holidays, but he didn't seem to mind to much! the lego kit stayed together less then a week before being shattered. this is the last kit he will get for a loooookng while.

we met with his teacher mon. who has been expressing major concern for him recently. He is not doing well in the classroom. He is a B/C student, but is not speaking in class and is struglling in a few other areas. We have decided to pull him from our beloved school. He and i are attending the open house for the local catholic school in town, but he (and I) both are planning to homeschool next year. the open house is so we can say we explored all options. And I am totally excited abt having him home next year! I put in notice with my job that I won't sign a contract to return, and have already begun building lesson plans involving many art [projects and hands on science, since that is really how he learns best. We are also having him tested for some food allergies to see if some of these issues are dietary.

CLS went to the Dr. this month for several flus and FINALLY hit the 19 pound mark! I am so excited, as this has been a long time coming, but her attitude is becoming stronger by the day, even if her weight isn't....

looking forward to spring break next week!!!!
