School is officially over for the year and Butch and Sundance have been promoted to 2nd grade (Year 2 in Ambleside Online). They started the year not even knowing all the sounds of the letters and now both are reading. We have already started the 2nd grade math book. We are going to finish some reading, math and free reading this summer (ssshhh don't tell the kids it is school work) I am so proud of the boys hard work this year!!
This summer will be filled with swimming lessons for all boys. Hopalong gets to take "big boy" swim lessons, that is, without Mom in the water with him. He is so excited. Butch and Sundance are taking tennis lesson, choir camp and YMCA day camp. It will be a fun filled summer. I love summer. I was made for summer. I love being outside, swimming, long days, fresh veggies, and a slowed down routine.
My summer will be filled with becoming Sugar Free. WHAT? you may ask. I have been struggling the past 12 months with stalled out weight loss. I just thought I was crazy. I am moody, irritable, binging, and plateaued on weight loss. I have struggled and struggled. I started working out 4 days a week back in January and still have not lost any more weight. Monday, I had had enough. I bowed my head on the treadmill and cried to God to help me find what was wrong.
I have begun to become sugar free. I am only on Step 1 (adding protein to my breakfast) but I know this is what I had been praying for. I already am feeling more alive and better than I have in the past 12 months. Let the journey begin!!!
