Apple Orchard

Yesterday on my day off we went to Miller's Big Red Orchard in Romeo. I have heard a lot of talk recently that Miller's was going down hill and that they are not worth going to. This is not true. Everything I expected was still the way it was when I was a kid. Well things were updated a bit but the feeling was still the same. The kids had a lot of fun. This was Liams 3rd year there so I think he had a definite understanding of what he was doing. Jude seemed to love it as well. Gabi was a sweetheart though I think she felt left out with the 2 boys and Sean being there didn't help either. There was allot of assuming the boys were being watched because every time I turned around someone was saying "where are the boys?".

Friday was awesome. In the morning I woke up thinking I had to work like normal at 12pm. I realized at 10 I didn't have to work until 4pm. This fact changed everything. I now had 4 extra hours to play with my boys. We had so much fun and really caught up on the time I miss while I am in school and at work. On Sunday we are going to the apple orchard so I will get some time with Gabi. I realize how much I truly miss those kids. When I am at work and I here a kid in the play area scream it makes me miss Liam. Working at the mall I see babies all day and it really makes me appreciate the time I get to spend with them. Silva told me today that Liam was acting out a scene from Go Diego Go in which the monkey BoBo Brothers do something bad. Liam ran up to a pile of folded laundry and threw them around going BOBOBOBOBOBO. Silva saw him and said "Freeze BoBos!" and he stopped, said sorry and walked away. I am sad I missed that. I love those little monsters.

First Quiz

Last week I had my first quiz in my College Success Skills class. It was also the first quiz this semester. Today I got it back. I am happy with the score, a nice 46 out of 45. What I was upset about was the fact that I did 4 extra credit questions and ended up with one extra credit. I have always been bad at test so I now know that I need to concentrate more on the answers. What I did wrong was I answered the questions but didn't elaborate enough. I knew this was a essay Quiz I should have answered all of them in complete paragraphs. Like I said I am not upset, just more aware of an area of improvement. Tonight I have my first Math Test in 6 years. I'm confident that I know what I need to in order to pass. My biggest issue is copying the equation, I will put a wrong number or make a 28 a 2 or an 8 for example. I will definitely need to pay extra attention to this. I can really ruin everything if I don't.

First Post: Back to School

Those who don't know me should know I am a lazy person. I have a natural tendency to do nothing. Sit me at the computer and I will click around for hours and not accomplish a thing. At the begining of 2010 I decided to stop being lazy. I am going to go to school in the fall semester. This was no easy task of course. I have 3 kids. I am 25 and I have a 26 year old wife, a 8 year old daughter (from a previous relationship), a almost 3 year old son and a 1 1/2 year old son. Oh, yeah and my wife is pregnant...Again.

I decided to take the vast goal I set and break it up into smaller pieces. First, find financial add, with this many kids there is no way I can pay for it myself. Second, reapply to Oakland Community College, I took 2 classes in 2004 and never went back. Third, find out what I want to do! I decided on becoming a Chiropractor. Fourth, map out my classes I need to take to get into Chiropractic School. Fifth, apply for classes and finally juggle school and work and kids and life into 168 hours a week...Oh and some sleep, of course.

I am now in my fourth week of classes.
