It has been a week since I've written anything. This has been the longest week too. What have I been doing?
School has started and I don't even have all of my books yet. How can that be possible? In the land of Manic Momma anything is possible I guess. So success has not been lurking in our classroom. We have started on a novel and Spelling assignments. We started out German lessons yesterday. Oh yeah, I forgot to tell ya. I don't have enough to do, so I decided to add German to our curriculum this year. LOL!!! We are actually excited about it. My father was part German and I thought it would be cool to dig a little deeper into the German culture. Anna also knows German, so while she is here I thought we could use her knowledge as well.
Gymnastics.....Oh how Mahala LOVES the sport. And listen here when I tell you that she is pretty damn good at it too. She has Never been interested in any sport. She didn't even watch the Olympics. So I have never pushed a sport on her, why make a fuss I always thought. Her instructor last night told me she was a natural and with her determination she thought she could make team. WOW, that sounds cool. So for an hour and a half I sit on the sidelines in aw as my baby girl tumbles, stretches and glides across the balance beam. And to make life even more of a joy Skylar is doing it too. Yep, you read right. Last week I asked him to sign up for at least the free class. And reluctantly he did, I had to push him out onto the mat. After class he was so excited and the instructor told me they were moving him up to a level 4. We can then decide if we would like to put him on a team or not. Level 4 begins the competitive level, but you can choose to stay recreational if you want to.
Thanh's Birthday is Wednesday. But, tonight I am surprising him with dinner. I have an extra something that I am going to surprise him with too. I can't say right now. He may read this and I can't let him find out until tonight. HE HE HEEEEE.
