School Begins

I am so excited about start school again. I am taking all online classes for the first time and so far, I am enjoying it. I just hope I feel the same way about it in a week or month from now!!! My husbands family and my family have a tradition coming up next month, Blizzard Ball. We play softball in the snow for the weekend of Feb. 10,11. We are very psyched about it and can’t to drink some beers and hit some balls!!!!!!!! Too bad there isn’t really any snow! That’s what is going on with the Norton Family. Kids are getting so big and Nevaeh is going to school. It’s amazing how fast they grow up. when you just have them, people tell you that all the time, but you never pay any mind to it, until they are already in school and graduating!

Later,

Kristi

You Are Apple Green
You are almost super-humanly upbeat. You have a very positive energy that surrounds you.And while you are happy go lucky, you’re also charmingly assertive.You get what you want, even if you have to persuade those against you to see things your way.

Reflective and thoughtful, you know yourself well – and you know that you want out of life.
