Really quick blog
Sunday, November 23, 2014
Hello to my Spark friends! I thought I would write a super quick blog today before I get on to my packing and tutoring. Packing because we are moving in two weeks to Dubai and tutoring because the kids need to take entrance exams for school and Norway is a bit behind scholastically. (Truly...Quin's teacher even admitted it.)
We have been doing a bit of "brushing up" for Quin in English and Math. It turns out that at this point with her reading and spelling she is kind of an "English as a second language" student. We had had to teach Liam to read in the past few weeks as he will be entering first grade if all goes well and here he is still in the barnehage system (daycare). It takes a lot of time, all of it. This is why I have not been here on Spark.
Sadly we have had some struggles with our stupid car an probably have to junk it as it decided this past week to fall apart! This whole driving thing in Norway has been a real trial! The good news is I have a drivers licence at least because I will surely need it in Dubai.
I have really been struggling with eating right and hit rock bottom this past Thursday with a day of eating so badly that I was literally ill in bed that night. Friday, Patrick and I decided to do a cleanse of sorts. Nothing drastic, just full of super healthy foods and lots of water. I am feeling a lot more in control now that we have a plan.
OK...gotta go...Patrick needs the computer for Skyoe. (getting some things finalised)
I miss you all and will be back soon!
