My friend Teri has a blog. She is so interesting and she has the skill to write just how she speaks. It feels like you are actually having a conversation with her. I thought I'd try my hand at having a blog. We'll see how it goes.......
I called it fleur-de-more because if you know me you know that I love fleur-de-lis. It just seemed like a fun name. I am all about fun. A day without fun is very, very long.
Today, I worked in my boy's classrooms. I really like to be able to do it. They have great teachers and I'm so happy things are going so well. God was gracious to us this year with the teachers they got.
Today, I'm thinking about homework. At what point does the child's inner will decide for themselves to be motivated to do it? Right now, it's my will, and ,frankly, it drives me crazy!
Thanks for indulging me by reading this! I love you all, Janice

Hi Janice!!
thanks for sharing your blog with me. It's so great to hear about you and your life. Kyle's Kindergarten class is studying ovals this week so we're bringing a dozen eggs to school. They'll be taste testing differnt ways to cook eggs. Fun!
I just got off phone with my nephew Stewart. He's actually tutoring me for my next masters class. ALGEBRA!! I have a class called analyzing the numbers or something like that and we hae to remember how to do algebra. Last time I did this I was in 9th grade. Stewart was a huge help - hard to beoive he's old enough to know all this stuff now.

It was great to talk to you the other day and this blog is fun too.

see you soon --

Love you lots!

Hi Janice,

I typed this once but it must not have saved. It was great seeing you this summer. Oh, I saw tripletts today and they were about 3 months old. Don't you wish you had 3 the same age?

Love you!

Hi Janice,
I'm so excited you have a blog! I will check it all the time.
Just got back from Awana a while ago. Also, it was the first night of our small group at Ruddell's. We're watching "The End of the Spear". The first half was very sad.
How are the kids, and Andrew?
We're all good here...
