- First, we have decided to cancel the summer vacation in Gatlinburg and have re-scheduled for the first week of October. The kids will be on Fall Break then, and will only have to miss a couple days of school. I feel good about the decision, and have already made plans to do a couple things with the kids that are semi-local. I am looking forward to us all being together for vacation in the fall.
- Secondly, we got the kids achievement test scores back on Wednesday. Yay! My kids all did well. Sometimes, I wonder what in the world I worry so much about! There were some minor gaps in a couple subjects for one of my children, but we have devised a plan to take care of that this summer! I'm excited about that. They will be ready when August comes and it's time to head off to school--ahem...for the very first time.
- And thirdly, it is time to discuss the past week's successes and failures in the May Day Weight Challenge. Start weight: 137.9 This week: 137.1
I am not completely sure about my weight loss, but think it is down 1/2 pound. My new scales aren't as great as I thought they would be. I was very good this past week with my eating--in spite of a special Mother's Day German chocolate cake and my husband's birthday key lime pie. I stayed under my calorie goal except for 2 days--and I had exercised on one of those. I was able to exercise 4 times. I am running/walking and going to Curves.
