And to that I say woo hoo! I love the family and camaraderie of the holidays but they leave me feeling overwhelmed and anxious 😦 Thankfully they are almost over!! Jayden will be back at school next week, which makes me really sad! I am goinna miss my bug a boo 😥 but I know he will love it and we will be back to gymnastics which all the kids need and our schedules will be normal again, CJ hasnt been working much this past week leaving what mini version of a schedule I had self imposed flying out the window but it has been fun spending time coloring on the windows and playing farm with the kiddos! I am super neglectful of this here blog when I have such cute people to pay mind too! I love doing it though 🙂 Amazing! I am grateful for my family, for my time with them and for holiday breaks :love:
As I am sure y’all noticed I took a little break (this was from meal planning and any good cooking too) and it was def. needed and well, appreciated. I tend to loose sight of who I am and concentrate on what I think other people want me to be 😦 So I took a little break and went shopping with my friend Nichole and got Emmer a retro pbk kitchen for $20 (I’ll post pics in like ten minutes) and some new sweaters for myself and then I took the kidlets and the hubs and drove to Michigan which is where I am posting to yall from! I am originally from a small town in Michigan so we are here to visit for Thanksgiving and its just lovely to see all my awesome family (aside from Amanda whom should be here tomorrow)! Today we are lazing around at least for the AM portion of the day, thinking about heading to the mall to let the kidlets play in a few and then family time this afternoon! One thing I have noticed about Michigan is that it is really not easy to be a vegetarian! That is a okay though because I know how to work around it and I am going to making a yummy veggie dinner for everyone and butternut squash risotto for Thanksgiving!
Other things I have noticed about Michigan the oxygen rich air has provided me with the ability to get my mile down to 10 minutes from 11:47 when I left on Saturday! I am so psyched to go for a run tomorrow I am thinking a solid 3 miles (did 2.7 yesterday in 27 minutes) and then 4 on Friday! I was hoping to do 6 in an but its kinda hilly here and its wreaking havoc on my solias’ which is pathetic and tells me I need to run out side in Colorado because the treadmill is doing me a serious a disservice and I will never be able to finish tough mudder at this rate! Hmm well I think that is all that is fit to print at this point! More to come latter from our fun filled trip 🙂
I know from the title this sounds either very gun rights or elitist, it’s neither! I am doing a 6 week running journal on how the Accountable Kids program has or hasn’t worked for us.
Some back ground- I have been pseudo implementing this program for 9 months…9 months of failure…on my part and confusion on my kids part
So, I ordered a starter kit- the book and a board, the boys already have boards so I got one for Emmy because she is eager to flip cards like her brothers!
I read the book, well enough to know I may have chose the wrong career field, I had no idea kids computed things sooo differently than adults. But hey, better late than never…
Minimizing to start!
The boys set the table and cleared it without being asked!! They have flipped morning cards and are being much more co-operative and happy!!
