Last night we had parent teacher conferences. Kaitlyn is doing a great job this year! I am so proud of her, but that isn't the part I want to brag on....
At the beginning of the school year they take the IOWA test (which is an achievement test I think) and Kaitlyn got an award of scoring in the top ten percent...NATIONALLY in science!! What an honor for her.
Aaron and I noticed some grades starting to slip a little bit last week and have been stressing the importance of doing her best in school. It doesn't take very much for her to do well, she is one of those who can study for 5 minutes and have it perfect. (Oh how I wish I was blessed with that gift!) So, we had started tightening up around here making sure she was doing her work. I am hoping that this will give her the kick in the pants that she needs to really strive to do her best again.
Updates on the rest of us. We are all finally on the mend after all being sick the last week. I think Aaron and Kaitlyn had it the worst with a bad cough.
Aidan is doing well at preschool. He loves his teachers and he is working at home to try to learn all of the ABC's before he has his kindergarten placement test (we are not going to talk about Kindergarten quite yet though since this mom isn't ready for it!) He is also ready for soccer to start! It's his first time playing and he is really excited! We start at the end of the month.
Aaron went to Omaha a few weeks ago for work. He thought it was cool getting to see the headquarter for UP, but it was even too cold for him which is saying a lot. He is still enjoying his job and that is something to be said. Aaron is very involved at our church with his deacon duties, teaching Sunday school and leading a small group.
I have been busy, as well, trying to keep up with the housework, teaching my preschool class and trying to make sure that the kids are doing well education wise. Other than that I'm pretty much a taxi service around here...I think I live in my car. I'm to the point where on my days off I dread having to run any errands because I just don't want to drive anywhere. I'm thinking next year I'm back to limiting the kids to ONE extra curricular activity and AWANA's.
Girl Scout Cookie's are in, so if you ordered some we will try to have them delivered ASAP, that is the goal for today to get them all sorted and start delivering them.
