So we made it through week 2 of third grade! Whew! This week was a more true week. Field trips, melt downs, the whole 9 yards. We are officially back into a normal homeschool routine!
The week started off weird because I had to go to my three month follow up appointment first thing. Am I the only one that really doesn't like things first thing Monday morning? It seems to throw the whole day off for us and we never get back to what we need to do school wise. So we just invited friends over and had a homeschool pow-wow planning session. ;-)
We had our first field trip this week to Publix. It was our first official field trip of the homeschool year! We were all super excited. The teenagers weren't so excited about the hairnets, BUT they still had a great time. Our group is exploding and we couldn't more excited!
Boo Bear and I kept on with our curriculum for the three (more like 2 1/2) full days of school we got. I always tell myself to stop stressing because even if it's not bookwork, we're still learning.
I'm working on eating differently and so far have done well. It's always been an uphill battle for me to lose weight. I am a type 2 diabetic and I have a thyroid problem so it's like my body laughs at me when I say let's get rid of this. This week my blood sugar numbers have been amazing and I'm feeling much better. I have been working with Trim Healthy Mama more soundly this week and it seems to be doing some amazing things. I know many people love it and many people don't so we shall see how it works for us. So far,my sugar numbers are agreeing with it. :) I'm doing more of a Trim Healthy Mama/Paleo twist I think.
Here's something I ate this week. This smoothie was amazing and the only one I have had to fight my son over. He doesn't usually like them but this one was a sure winner. Who doesn't like Strawberry Cheesecake!!
