That pretty much sums it all up :)
Life has been pretty good to us Walkers lately. No complaints found here! :)
I thought I'd take a minute and update you on some of the important every day stuff that's been going on.
Shaggy came through his surgery like a champ.
But he did have to wear the "Collar of Shame" for a bit.
The day after surgery was a bit rough. He laid around lot, which was to be expected.
But, after a week, he's acting like he's never even had a hurt leg.
Other than that, I've been doing a TON of reading :) Jayce took a picture of me engrossed in Mockingjay. Yep, this is pretty much how you find me lately :) I'm now reading The Time Traveler's Wife and am totally engrossed.
We've also been hanging out with our neighbors a lot. Pretty much every single weekend :) Brian snapped a picture of me and Jaina in their yard a couple of weeks ago.
The kids are doing marvelous in school, I'm happy to report!
Jayce had a bit of a rough start with his inability to sit through various classroom activities. After discovering that the typical behavior chart thing doesn't work on Jayce, his teacher came up with a way to instantly reward him for every time she caught him sitting nicely. It worked! And now, after two weeks, he has rows and rows of stamps and stickers on his sheet. We celebrated the first week with Chuck E. Cheese. I have yet to figure out what this past week's big reward is going to be. Now that he can sit, we'll work on him staying in line when walking. I love that his teacher is working so well with us!
Jaina continues to love her class, but is discouraged about her current reading level. Her teacher called me in for a conference to discuss a few things. Number one... lack of motivation. Jaina told me today that she could care less if she gets A's on her report card or on her tests. Umm..... I don't want to bribe her to get good grades, but I am sorely disappointed with her lack of intrinsic motivation.
Also concerning is her lack of enthusiasm for reading. Sigh. Is she really my child? But yet she doesn't like to read? I'm trying not to make a big deal about it and make her feel pressured. Its really hard!
In good news, though, her math scores on addition and subtraction have improved! Just in time for multiplication! Bring on those times tables!
So, there ya have it! Our life recapped. I have a billion blog posts started in my head and pictures to go along with them, yet can never find the time. Maybe next week!
Have a great weekend!
