Alright, Checking in. Here's some stuff.
I don't know if you already know this but raising five kids and working and managing all my extra people and dealing with law schools and adulting in general is time demanding. So the blog falls by the wayside.
I've reapplied to law schools in Utah. I got into both of them. BYU (LDS school) has an honor code including parameters about hair. When I interviewed with them I went in head to toe pink because why hide the ball but after I got in and had to go to Admitted Student's Day I needed to address the hair situation.
This is my solution until I make some decisions. I've not decided which school I'm going to yet.
Got this wig in Las Vegas because errybody knows if you're buying a wig you go to where the black girls go. And as far as the style, go big or go home, right?
I'm not convinced I'm passing. When people look at me I don't know if they're looking at the most amazing hair a woman has ever had OR if they're trying to assess if it's a wig and why. I feel really conspicuous when I wear it. Believe it or not I feel as uncomfortable looking "normal" as the people who say "You're so brave" would if they had my style.
See? Totally comfortable. I yam what I yam. And I yam a little bit nuts.
That's my update. Bit nuts, worrying about law school, still having fun.
And here are the kids updates.
Mimi's update is that she is doing great in school, has moved to share a room with Lou, sold a ton of Girl Scout Cookies, and is still playing with her American Girl Dolls and it makes me so happy. She is interested in making money so here are a couple of photos that Niya uses to send her on modeling jobs. She's helpful and doing a lot of cooking, but she's suffering with allergies and is currently planning her post-high school culinary school life in a "less dry country like Fiji."
Jude is in a macho phase, as is evident in his pictures. He's a tough guy. He's really into his Scout program, baseball, reading, and spending his life in the backyard. He prefers to be outside.
Jude's hair color of choice is turqouise right now. Tough guy though he is he definitely has a weak spot for the babies.
The children helped Robyn with this painting which she then submitted to her school's art show. The kids were so surprised when their names were up on the wall!
Parenting these last few months has come with a lot of politics and horror. The chaos of the current state of American politics added upon the chaos of having five children cooped up indoors during this rainy spring leaves me feeling overwhelmed.
Oh, and we went to Danville to see Pam's play. We're a busy fam. Self explanatory pictures.
