Official year has moved officially!!!

Well the girls started there new core curriculum. It is has gone smoothly for the most part except for making everything work smoothly together. Meaning TIME!! There doesn't seem to be enough of it.  But we are working the kinks out. We made a Weekly Goal and we are going to tweak it  It will smooth it self out as we go and get use to it. I have also made Daily Goals Monday/Wednesday 2011-2012, Tuesday/Thursday 2011-2012, Friday 2011-2012, Saturday 2011-2012. Please take time and look let me know if it looks like to much or not enough. Having outside input helps so much!

Makenzee is an official 3rd grader if you go by grades. She is doing very well. Makenzee has a lot of reading she has to do in this curriculum which is turning out to be very good for her. Just since we started this curriculum Makenzee is already showing improvement with her reading skills. She is really trying to apply herself and watching her grow is awesome. I tell her that everyday she  is actually doing more and more on her own. She looked at me and said wow I am starting to do my work without you Momma that's awesome. Independence can be good.

Lileigh is an Official 1st grader. We typically don't go by grades but since we started new curriculum they have numbers that are for certain grades. Lileigh has completed two PACE books already. Well it was basic Math and Kindergarten. She Momma do I have to do these. I said Lileigh this is review yes because if you do not have it down then when you start doing first grade you will not understand. So she is very pleased with her self on finishing two PACE books. This is going to be an awesome year and Yes God is good we owe it all to him!

We are receiving the Girl Scout Cookies to deliver and collect money Saturday February 26, 2011. I will be so glad when we are finished with cookies. It has been a lot of fun but also tiring. The troop has sold almost 5034 boxes @ $3.50 comes to $17619.00.  So we should receive almost $2000.00 as troop proceeds . Will know more when we are through. The girls of Troop 463 wants to go to Houston to the Space camp they have there.  Looks like we have a good start to be able to plan for this trip. So proud of Troop 463! =)

The girls had there first game Saturday. Makenzee's team Mighty Sharks played well for not have been playing this whole time. Lileigh is on the Mighty Tigers teams had 2 games. They played very well. They are looking like they remember how to chase a ball not like bees flying around picking flowers like in fall! So glad girls are enjoying themselves. I love going to watch my girls play. We have games here on till the end of March I do believe.

Thank you stopping and pondering,

Be careful to obey all these regulations I am giving you, so that it may always go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is good and right in the eyes of the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 12:28

Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.
