Then the school year started and she really got busy.
She's taking like 19 hours and playing volleyball and traveling practically every week.
Plus inspections, learning random knowledge (that she has to know at any given moment), different personalities all around her, clean uniforms, and maintaining grades.
Nothing about this school is easy.
She is so homesick and for some reason (I can't even recall why) we made the decision that she would stay in NYC for Thanksgiving and come home for Christmas. Don't even ask me why we thought that was a good idea. FOR. THE. LOVE.
It will have been 6 months when that girl finally steps back on Oklahoma soil. 6. Six. Months. (that's too long)
She's embracing the suck, and getting it done. For the last two years, she has multi-tasked as hard as she could with volleyball, work, high school, vo-tech and concurrent college, so they say the hardest thing about being a plebe is learning time management. She had that down to a science before she went, so she has really just embraced it, and trying not to be a procrastinator (which is our middle name).
I will just be super glad to have her home in 6 weeks. Cannot wait.
On the other coast of the USA, you will find my pregnant daughter, Kip. I was CERTAIN this baby was a GIRL. I just KNEW IT.
WRONG. They called me and yelled "It's got a PENIS" and I almost dropped the phone. Then I was sooooo OVERJOYED because I LOVE me some grandsons!
The only one NOT thrilled with the news is my diva granddaug, Brielle, who believes she is a human.
I'm pretty sure, she will come around. She liked DD, ok, even when he tried to eat her tags on her collar.
I love me some little boy humans, and big old diva granddaugs.
So, life is pretty fun with grandsons. I'm looking so forward to meeting the newest one in April.
But first, let's get that Plebe home for Christmas, and get that Kip and Brandon here, and move to the ranch, (oh, did I tell you we GOT IN and are FOR SURE MOVING!?) Yeah, that too.
SO, 2017 has turned out to be a pretty good year for the family. 2018 is just going to be over the top.
I Mean, fo' reals.
God is certainly good, all the TIME.
