What would be a better day to get back in action than Friday the 13th. And an easy catch-up with some lovely ladies for Five on Friday
Five: Summer School
This is my second summer working on my Reading Certificate. One class in and I still am enthralled with everything we're learning. I have walked away from every class with something I can use in the classroom or in my new position. This class is specifically on working with teacher's and staff. This book has quickly become an amazing tool!
Four: Chicago, maybe
With my 30th this fall and our 5th anniversary this summer, the Man and I were hoping to get away sometime. Chicago is close enough not to spend a lot of time traveling, but close enough and fun enough to get away. So it's time to start looking at what we want to do, where we want to stay, and most importantly, where we want to eat! I'm so excited just to have one-on-one time with the Man, that's all I need!
To help out our close friends, I'm watching their daughter(Baby B) for a few days a week for the next few weeks. Today is our second day together and our first day venturing out of the house. Besides getting to hang out with this cutie, I'm also trying to get a feel for what it might be like with three babes.
First lesson learned is that we will have to have a double stroller. While I had Baby B in her car seat/stroller combo, Ryker was allowed to walk around. He did fine walking from the parking garage to library but once we hit the kids section this mama got to play chase. While he didn't get too far away, it was tough to help Tucker find his book, keep Ryker close, and Baby B from losing it. It was a quick visit and I learned! Baby B has a different disposition than my boys had so it's been a bit of adjustment. We'll see how the next few weeks go.
Two: No more gluten
After school let out on Thursday, we had Panera delivered on Friday for teachers. I did a little experiment and sort of stopped watching what I ate. I'm not saying I pigged out and ate junk, but I just didn't limit what I choose to eat to gluten free. I lasted until yesterday and decided I didn't like the changes I was seeing. My skin was not so lovely, my energy level was bbbbaaaaddd (as in wanting a two hour nap everyday), running felt harder than ever. It may just be in my head, but I didn't like it and saw that skipping foods was well worth it.
One: It's Summer!
