Sick Sick Sick

Well, I havent posted for a little bit because everyone has been sick off and on for the past week and a half. First Ian, then Addie, now Denver. Gotta love the first week of school. Everyone picks up everyone elses germs and it seems like you stay sick for 3 months. Anyway, Denver was up all night throwing up and everything else....Im actually feeling a little clamy myself right now and am praying that I dont get sick too.

So, nothing to report really.... I just started weight watchers yesterday. Now that I am working full time, I dont feel quite as guilty spending the money and it seems to be the only thing that works for me. That is my main focus right now is losing all this extra weight. Not only for vanity purposes but for health reasons too. My short term goal is to lose 10 pounds per month which definitely doable considering I have to lose about 90 pounds altogether. Anyway, my main goal for the year is to lose 35 pounds by Christmas which is a little less than 10 pounds per month but I am considering the holidays..... If I accomplish this goal, be prepared to see a new me! I have a plan that I wont reveal for now but I am excited about the prospect of carrying it out.

Evan got a letter in the mail from his new Kindergarten teacher. He was VERY excited. His school starts Sept 4th and he can hardly wait. Her name is Mrs. Spiegel and I really hope she is kind and patient. Teachers make such a difference in the success or failure of students...getting a bad teacher in the first few years can be devastating to a child. So, we get to meet her on the 27th and I will get a feel for who she is. Ian is progressing in school as expected. He is reading 'The Boxcar Children" which was one of my most favorite books when I was young. Im excited to be reading it with him as it brings back a lot of memories. He has had more homework than I like to see but that just goes along with the program he is in. Lots of math, spelling tests, reading with excerises afterward. Its enough to make me nuts. I guess the teacher doesnt realize that all moms dont have the luxury of spending 3 hours a night on homework. Oh well. Addison continues to be a joy! She is such a dancer! Any music at all, and she is moving. I LOVE IT!!! I hope she continues down that road and loves it like I did. I plan on putting her in ballet as soon as she is 2 or 3. I have signed the boys up for piano lessons and those start the day after Labor Day. Also, we have signed them up for soccer as well. It is going to be a busy year!

Well, we are getting excited for our trip to Las Vegas. We are going over Labor Day weekend. The kids cant wait to see Gma and Gpa Ries and swim in the pool. I cant wait just to get away for a little bit. Its alway nice to be away from your own house for a couple of days.......

Well, I guess thats it for now. Maybe we will have more to write about next week.....
