#2 headed off to a scouting high adventure early this morning. Before he could go, though, I had to take him to the grocery store to get a few additional food items. He woke me at 5am. I'm so surprised at how good I felt. YAY!!!
#1 is nannying and is very happy in her position. She gets to work with two sweet girls and run them around to do all kinds of fun things in the area. She works for them Monday through Thursday and works her other job on Fridays. It works out so well.
I'm getting really excited about this new chapter in her life and ours. Thank you to everyone who has helped employ her so she can earn the money she needs to get her safely to Idaho and in school come September!
Everybody's got their goals for the summer. Here's how they stand right now....
#1 - earn $$ for school (This is her ONLY goal. That's how important it is).
#2 - finish Eagle Scout award, run 400 miles, Portland to Coast
#3 - earn $100, get on one of the high school soccer teams. She also has her own "bucket list."
#4 - swim, advance in scouting
#5 - swim, read everyday
#6 - learn to tie shoes, ride a 2-wheeler
#7 - potty training - FUN! FUN! FUN! (I haven't ever been forced into this one before, but if she's going to be ready for preschool in September, it's got to be done. YIKES!)
My goals for the summer are listed above. I mean, seriously, is there really any room for me to focus on anything else right now? Once school starts, I'll be able to work on my own stuff. For now, my goal is to help my kids have good memories and to feel successful about the summer of 2012. So glad to be getting some health and energy back in order to get some things accomplished.
