I Have Nothing Interesting to Say

I haven't updated for a couple days, because well...I really don't have anything too exciting to share with you all at the moment.

Here's a quick rundown of my past week:

- Last week, I pulled my daughter out of school for the day and took a little ride to the school district office, where I grabbed a packet of information for yanking her out of the public school system since I want to home school her for the rest of the year.

My daughter is being severely bullied at school by several children (yes, she's only in first grade. Frightening that this crap begins so early, isn't it?). It's been going on for the majority of the school year, I've had several conferences with her teacher about it, and she is genuinely concerned about Teagan as well...but there's only so much that the staff can do. She is so miserable that she starts crying nearly every day when I pick her up after school, and every morning it's a battle to get her ready since she's busy throwing a temper tantrum and begging me not to make her go.

Why is she being singled out and picked on? I don't really know. Actually, I do. It's because they're jealous. She's a beautiful, smart, funny, and kind little girl...and they're all just a bunch of h8rz.
That's my girl on the left. Isn't she gorgeous? Why yes, I did cut my mother-in-law in half when I cropped this to share with you.

So anyway...all of this has taken up a lot of my time lately: preparing to finish up her school year with myself as her teacher (I plan to start her homeschooling next week), gathering advice and information from friends and the local homeschooling association, etc.

- Sunday my mother-in-law took all of the children for the day, so my husband and I had approximately 10 hours to ourselves. We had a long day full of activities planned, but we ended up just eating out for lunch and then opting to come home to take a nap.

And yep...that basically sums it up. I haven't even had time to craft. I've received some awesome fabric in the mail over the last few days, but whenever I have the time to choose to sit down and sew, I'm just too tired and would rather lay down and relax with Netflix.

So that's what's going on, just in case any netizens have missed me!

Holy crap, that is so crazy! Being bullied like that so young. I'm glad you're pulling her, even though Homeschooling isn't an easy road to choose.

I can't understand why on earth they would single her out like that, she's a beautiful little girl and everything I've heard about her she just seems so sweet. Kids can be so cruel and it is scary that it's starting so young, Matthew is in 1st grade and I'm amazed at some of the things he tells me other kids say to him and other kids in his class.
