Hi friends! Be prepared for the total randomness of this post.
Thank goodness my bestie Michelle is having a linky that is PERFECT for my random thoughts...
I set several goals for myself this summer, and today I want to talk about two of them.
Fitness has been a big goal of mine this summer! I feel that I get in such bad habits all year with as much rushing around that I do... that my body gets the backseat. In May I started a Beachbody challenge where I use Shakeology (LOVE) and use a video series called Chalean Extreme (Double LOVE).
I also am getting back into running (don't love quite yet)!
Can I tell y'all...I actually have biceps now! Ha. The funny thing is- I played college soccer, and I genuinely feel like I am in better shape now than I was back then! I know it is because for the first time I am actually eating right and working out right. Hopefully one day I will feel comfortable enough to share before and after pictures with y'all.
I really wanted to spend some time working with Nash and Emmie on school stuff. Emmie has one more year of preschool, and Nash will be starting Kindergarten!
One of my smaller goals has been to work on getting Nash to attain to a task for longer periods of time. I know in Kindergarten this will be an important skill for him to have. Water Colors have provided a great tool for us to do this.
We also started good old fashioned D.E.A.R time! I ordered Nash some BOB books off of Amazon, and Emmie is reading pictures and telling herself the stories. I also make sure that I am reading during this time!
....yes, bed head and all- we worked on Teeny Tiny Teacher's Kindergarten Morning Work!
THIS version was PERFECT for Nash, and THIS version was JUST right for Emmie! Look at that- I'm even differentiating on summer vacay :)
Please don't think I am a mean mommy who believes in all work and no play! Look at these two---
---we are thoroughly enjoying our summer!
