My kids…they mean the world to me. I have a 16 year old daughter (whom I mentioned yesterday was her birthday) and a 13 year old son. They struggled so bad in school the past few years that I ended up trying to homeschool them, which didn’t go well at all for either one of them. So their dad and I talked and we decided to have the kids go live with him for the school year. He lives about 2 ½ hours away. The schools are a lot better in his area than in mine anyway. Well the kids are doing really well in school over there and I am just so proud of both of them.
So basically I went from having them with me all of their lives to them living with their dad. It was tough, it still is really tough. But knowing that they are being taken care of and are safe I know that we did the right thing.
Anyway I said all of that to say that the kids are here for the weekend to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. YAY!!! So we are going to dinner pretty soon and I am just really grateful for every chance I get to spend with them.
