While walking with my friend, Tabitha, this morning, I commented that I needed to take my new camera with me so that I could take some pictures and update my blog.  We talked the whole time and I failed to take pictures.  Guess what?  You're going to get a post with no pictures.

I actually do have some pictures to post and some cool videos but I am still having technology issues.  Part of it is my netbook want allow me to open up my blogger profile because it is intertwined with my son's google account that he has for school.  Another part is I am having troubles finding the pictures I uploaded to the Apple computer in our room.  Ugghhh!!!

So what's new?  Well, I talked to my Aunt and Uncle's niece, Lori, on Thursday and we are planning for our families to meet on next Thursday for dinner.  I am looking forward to it.

It is the end of the semester for Brian so he is in the midst of semester projects and preparing for final exams.  I still have one teacher that I would love to have words with.  I really need to write a letter to the school principal.  Brian's English teacher once again has strayed from the school calendar and changed her plans.  She told the students last week to ignore their grammar assignments.  There were quizzes scheduled and two semester exams scheduled for this week but she told them to ignore them.  Then in her announcement page she told the kids to follow another course of action for this week.  We, or I should said I, did not clue into what was going on until Friday and Brian was now a week behind.  You see I have Brian and I print off the monthly assignment sheet and go by that.  Oh...this teacher also decided to make the switch to the school's Google address this week and has chosen to start to communicate through that site.  Of all weeks to decide to change over, semester exam week is not the one.  It is bad enough that the virtual academy has decided to change to a Google site, but what makes it more confusing is that only a few teachers have made the change so you have to two sites to juggle and manage. Within those two sites you have multiple pages to check and manage for each subject.  It is a lot and personally, for me, it is overwhelming.    Oops, there I go again....venting my frustrations with WAVA.  I know, Sue, I know!

Bonnie is off working at Camas Meadows Bible camp for the second weekend in a row.  Hopefully, she will manage her time there better than before and not come home dog-tired.  My sister-in-law Debbie came over Thursday night and took some awesome pictures of Bonnie.  We will use the pictures for the local newspaper to promote her as Leavenworth's Distinguished Young Woman.  Bonnie is set to compete in the At Large program in April.  She is starting to get nervous.  She really needs to find a dramatic reading for the talent portion of the competition.  I hope she does well and sticks with it.

Well,  that is all you are getting for now.

  1. lol You know I TOTALLY get it. I remember way back when I was using WAVA with Baylee, at one point I vented on my blog and I titled the post "Send in the Clowns." It was the same sort of deal...just a lot of the-right-hand-not-knowing-what-the-left-was-doing disorganization on their part.
