I was trying to get a silly pose and Ms. A was not having it.

Dustin ran an errand
Q started crying, he hadn't been feeling great all week, wouldn't stop
Gaby had to hold the baby
Kendal and Mia were not listening
I cut my finger
Trying to get spelling words looked at
It was the longest 33 minutes ever... however I took Kadyn lunch and her treats at school for her birthday. Having her happy made my 33 minutes last night a distant memory.
I am so glad Kadyn was having a great day for her birthday and I was able to be a part of it. Every crazy thing that happened last night was worth it when I saw her face light up when I walked into her classroom, when her class sang HB to her, and when she received comments on her treat.
Can't wait for the bus to come so we can celebrate the rest of the evening.

Last week I received an email that 6th graders are enrolling for middle school next month and there is a parent meeting. Lets just pause here for a moment. First of all, am I really that old? Second of all, is Gaby really that old? And third of all, WHAT? I am so not ready for middle school. I know whatever it brings, she will be fine. I will be too, maybe by the time she is in high school.
Happy Tuesday. Hope this day is blessing you somehow!!!

Speaking of bedtime... I hate it. I hate the routine, the meltdowns, and well, I could go on and on. But I do the mornings, Dustin does bedtime. D was out fixing a computer issue and I was getting kids to bed. I was feeding Qman and getting him down. After I was done with him, I went downstairs and saw this happening. Kadyn Dee reading to her sisters a bedtime story. *heart melting*
Since Christmas break, we have been encouraging Kk to read more independently at home. We have been having her read one book on her own before bed, then chapter book with us. She has been doing very well. And to see her reading, out loud, with confidence, well... it's just awesome. She has come such a long way! *sigh*
I am kinda over the snow- I am ready to play outside again. I'm kinda over being cold all this time.
I am so excited that I have worked out 7 days in the row. I can't tell you the last time I have worked out 7 days in a row. I am so excited to have my workouts back on my daily routine again. The scale was even nice and moved down for me. Yay!
Guess what??!! I found out I wasn't perfect. Yep. That's right. I'm not perfect. I found this out as someone was so kind (but really not kind) to point out a mistake I made and seemed to have gotten great joy while doing so. I know vague, vague, vague. But all I can say is that I don't like mean people and spend a great amount of time surrounding myself with not mean people. I know I shouldn't let things like this get to me but is did. Oh well. Like I said, I'm not perfect. And I'm okay with that. Nuff said! Movin' On.
The kids brought home progress reports yesterday. And while I *think* everyone did well, I am still uber bummed at our grading system. I just doesn't get it. I like old fashion, "A" and "B" grades. I know the teachers are doing their best and it is a lot of hard work for them but I wish their was a happy medium on how the kids get graded. I am just so grateful to have 3 teachers plus support staff that communicate very well about the progress of our girls.
Well... tomorrow is Friday. Then it will be the "real" Saturday. I am happy for a laid back weekend and Gaby's first indoor soccer game. Looking forward to more family time and kids reading books out loud. It's all good!!!

Another personal goal is my weight... I have to sort out the bottom line of what is holding back from the healthy lifestyle I crave. I have 6 beautiful reasons I want to live a long, strong, healthy life now to make it happen, no more excuses.
Other areas in my life to "sort" this year:
home workout plan
put my guard down
give more hugs
play more games while shopping Wal-Mart
random acts of kindness
As I look at my list of things to sort, I pray I can be a better person this year. I hope you can find one word that will help you set goals for the new year!
