All about Reading

I've been looking into tons of different curriculum for next year and I'm so excited about finding All about Reading!!!  It looks amazing and fun for Adam.  He has such a problem with comprehension, and I think this program will work perfectly.

All About Learning Press, Inc.

                                                    I'm going to purchase level 2

to finish out this school year and I'm hoping we will finish before the following year begins.  If not we will complete it and then start on level 3.

I haven't purchased the reading interactive kit yet, but I will be getting it next!! 

I'm so excited and cannot wait for it to coming..... hoping by the end of the week.

If you've used or are using All about Reading..... please let me know what you think about it.

Thank you so much,


Getting healthy!

I've been using the trampoline and treadmill everyday - tomorrow will be a week ��. Today I had a banana and yogurt for breakfast, tuna and crackers and an orange for lunch, dinner chicken salad and rice.  Lots of water!!!  


A new year - a new me!

I'm starting this new year with a goal to lose weight and get healthy!!!  I've been using my treadmill and eating healthy.  I'm loving it!  I join a beachbody club on facebook - my cousin is in charge of the group.  She had us all make sweat cash jars, when we lose a pound - put a quarter or dollar in!!  I'm hoping to get this jar filled and buy new smaller clothes!!! 
Wish me luck in my weight lose adventure!!!  I will be updating daily on my loss��

Here's my before picture:

Adam 10th birthday!!!

Today is my son, Adam's 10th birthday!!!! 

The time went so fast, but I loved every minute of being his momma!!!!  I'm sure the next ten will go just as fast :(  haha I can wait for the teenage years!!!!!!!  We will be busy most of the day preparing gift bags and wrapping presents then having dinner at Pizza Hut :)  My husband will be gone for a couple weeks, so we are waiting for him to come back to have the party.  I sure hope this doesn't confuse Adam, well I think he'll be excited to celebrate for two months!!!

Lazy Sundays

Having a relaxing Sunday with my family. Husband and son are busy watching tv.  I'm sewing Adam a couple pairs of pants for school.  I didn't know how to see until Adam needed me too!  He has such a sensitive problem with clothes.  I'm hoping he outgrows it or is able to wear jeans in a few years.  I can only make one style now an they remind me of my grandpa and his favorite pants haha!  They are comforable and easy to wear, but not in style at all.  But they are fine for second grade.  I might just take a class!!!

I'm also putting items in my wishlist for TpT!! Loving all the stores having sales this weekend!!!

I hope everyone is having a great day!
