I just weighed myself and it looks like I am only 16 pounds away from my goal weight! That is really exciting! When I originally started on my program on Sparkpeople my goal was to lose 40 pounds by March 23rd. Well March 23rd has come and gone but I am not disappointed that I didn't make my goal. I am so happy with what I did lose in these last few months.
Last week Jarret's teacher sent home a note saying that his marks have dropped from last term because she has higher standards? Apparently he needs to practise his writing. So I will be getting Jarret a journal so he can write in it before bed every night. I am not too sure why she informed us of him still having trouble a week before he got his report card.. ??
We got his report card yesterday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It wasn't great he did drop in a lot of the areas but its not what I thought.
So we talked about what he needs to do in school to pull up his marks. And also what George and I have to do to get him focused at home. We didn't yell.. we were calm. He is a smart boy and we told him that. It was more encouragement then discipline.
The thing that really sucks is my shift at work will be 12-8 probably right until school is out for the summer, and that means most of the time the kids will be coming home at 9 and Jarret will have to do his homework so late. Nothing we can do about that for now.. we will all have to adjust.
Amy received her first report card this week. She is progressing really well. We were all happy about that.
Have a good one!
