*Just a reminder, or if you are new to my blog, I use my daughter’s middle names when talking about them here.
July 10. We have been done with school for less than a month, but at the same time, summer is speeding by.
The girls did beyond amazing on their standardized testing at the end of our school year. Both Sue and Caitlyn scored significantly above grade level. Math is still an area of struggle, but just for fun, we are resuming our math studies as of today. Sue is thrilled (or not).
My running is back. After weeks of worrying about recovering from my injury in May, I ran 10 miles without stopping on July 4!!!
Caitlyn and Sue started Cross Country yesterday (yay!!). This makes mama very happy. I love seeing them get active, it is the one sport I can relate to, and I love the family that runs the program.
Our family has made some new friends that we are spending time with a time or two each week. Friendship is not always easy for me, but God is reminding me if I open my heart, I just might be very happy with a new friend.
Hubby is growing a wonderful garden again this year. He has expanded it again so we can share the extra with others. Why not do something you enjoy and bless others at the same time?
The girls have been reading like crazy this summer. That is actually what they are doing right now. They have filled up one booklet of 50 squares (20 minutes of reading or a reading activity is one square) and are working on their second.
Patrice tried her hand at some skateboarding. She was very safe about it.
Sue got to wash the car last night with daddy and today is just a lazy day as it is predicted to rain all.day.long!!
But maybe, just maybe, there will be a chance for us to do some tie dye later in the week (Patrice is sporting last year’s project)…
Survive til you Thrive!
