quick ‘n dirty .. yeah baby :)
this post will be quick and dirty – which is pretty much my life these days.
i’m on day 27 of Greco. … i never thought i’d be able to say that! it’s been an incredible ride. i feel so much better! i’m sure it’s in my head, or partly, but i can do so much more now – i even did 28 pushups today in a row!! when i started i could barely do 1. take that upper body muscles. the best part – i crave going to classes … i get excited to go! i’ll weigh in friday and see how i’m doing … stay tuned! hardest part – coming up with lots of high protein meals!! there is only so many – eesh.
hannah had a huge moment today at Oxford … she finished her Alphabet Soups! I know if you are reading this and your kids don’t go to Oxford it’s really confusing, but here is the deal – you get the Alphabet Soups when you start to read (basic words/sounds), then there are 5 of them as you go through the learn to read … once you finish Alphabet Soup 5 – it’s an indication that you are a very confident reader – and great at it. Well, Hannah’s done!! And I couldn’t be more proud. However, she’s costing me a fortune with books … she’s at about 50 pages/day – i need a library membership!
now jakey on the other hand – wow – he’s quick quick quick! he’s already on Alphabet Soup 3! and he’s 4. wow. i’m in trouble! he’s reading my phone texts now. … he’s a monkey!
