First Term Almost Done

My first "term" at Kaplan is almost over.  My last day of this term is October 5.  My next "term" starts October 13.  This term started out as a bit of a challenge, but it got better.  When it started, the kids hadn't started back to school yet, so I had 3 weeks of trying to take care of them while attending my online seminars, studying, and doing my work.  I was able to get through it by doing school work before they woke up, and then again after they went to bed.  Once they started back to school, it was much easier since I then had the 2 hours every day that B is at school to do.  I have also had the trouble of knowing at times when to just walk away from school work at times.  But I have learned that I can not spend all of my free of the kids time studying, I also need some of that as "me" time.  With only a little over a week to go of this term, I am still keeping my "A" average in both classes.

One of my final projects is to interview an attorney, then write up a summary on that interview along with my thoughts on it, etc.  I had one attorney agree weeks ago to the interview.  But after he agreed, I never could get through to him to set up an appointment to do the interview.  So I had to call around to several other attorney offices to find one that would agree.  Out of the 20 or so that I called and/or left messages for, only 1 called me back.  Now I need to actually write up the summary.

Like I said before, my next "term" starts October 13.  My next two classes will be College Composition I and Introduction to Legal Technology.   I am so not looking forward to the Comp class considering I hate to write essays.  The Legal Tech class may be okay though.

Kids' School & Mine

All 3 kids are in school now.  R is now in the 4th grade.  School is school to him.  He doesn't want to go, but he knows he has to.  C is in Kindergarten.  She doesn't want to wake up in the mornings, and throws a fit every single morning about not wanting to go.  The only thing she says she likes about school is her cousin, J, is in her class.  B is in Early Childhood.  He doesn't want to go in the mornings either, but once his ride gets here he is ready to go.  And comes home everyday saying he had fun.  So far all 3 kids are doing good in school.

I have just a few weeks left in this term for my classes.  I survived midterm week with a B on both my midterms.  Even with the B on my midterms, I am still carrying an A average in both classes.  Of course, that is always subject to change in the next few weeks with finals, but all I can do is my best.
