Noah's first day of School

Noah started his first day of 4 year old preschool on Monday!! He LOVES it!!! He has the same teacher that Kate did. Mrs. Tanner is a wonderful teacher. She is so great with the kids. I think she will be a good fit for Noah. She has already told me that Noah is great at puzzles and that he is a smart one b/c of how fast he can put them together!!! It is always nice to hear good things from the teacher. This is going to be a great year for Noah. I really hope that she is around for Mags when she goes to school at McEachern UMC.

We are so excited for Noah to have a sport all for himself. He has gone to three years of Kate being in ballet. So this is his turn. Little boys don't have many options before the age of 4 for a fun sport. He did have gymnastics for a little while.

This is definitely something he is loving so far. He has been practicing his blocks and his punches and kicks. He is doing pretty good. I will try to catch it on video.

First day of First grade!

Kate started her first day of first grade yesterday. She was a beaming when she got in the car. She had a great day. She loves her teacher. Mrs. Cunningham (Mrs C) is her teacher this year. Kate was also fortunate to have many of her friends in her class again this year. I hope that every year starts off this great.

Quick weekly update

So we have been without a/c for a week now and we have survived. We bought two window units. We put one in the family room and one in Mags room. I am amazed at how well these things work. They are not really loud just a little white noise. The kids are doing great through it all.

Noah started Karate and he loves it. This is the free trial week, but I am pretty sure that he will want to continue doing Karate. We have only been one day, but I can tell this is going to be the best thing for Noah. They really teach the kids to focus and to have respect and discipline. ALL things sweet Noah needs. We can take him once a week or three times a week. It is really great!

Speaking of sweet Noah---he got up early this morning and made breakfast for himself and his siblings. It was just cereal, but it was so sweet of him. I helped with the milk. I am just amazed that he did this on his own and he is only 4.

Kate is getting ready to start 1st grade next week. I can't believe the summer is coming to an end. Maggie is crazier than ever and is really learning how to do so many things. She can now get in her booster when it is time to eat...and when it isn't time to eat. She can even fasten her belt on the booster. We have a gtg with some friends and I will post some updated pics of the kids after that.

13.8 more lbs to go!!!!

So I FINALLY did it. 2.8 today!! I hit the 25 lbs. I actually hit the 26.4 lb mark today! I can't believe it. I have less than 15 lbs to reach my goal (13.8 ti be exact). I think for the time being my short term goal will be 30 lbs and than I will think about the rest. I think I can hit that in about three weeks. I hope. It seems the second half of my weight loss is taking a little longer than in the first half. It has been 17 weeks and I am really proud of what I have accomplished so far. So here is to the next few weeks flying by. I think living in the sauna is helping. :)
