Best: Got an A+ on reading & writing test, so now she's going into the 4th grade
Worst: When the power went out in the school house it was a little scary.
Best: Getting the new bunk beds, they're so cool!
Worst: Having to stop playing Lego Land, because it had been so much fun and she didn't want to stop.
Best: Being back home again after going to Chanti's house (not that she didn't like it at Chanti's house)
Worst: When she had a crayon up her nose, because mommy was worried (yes, that happened)
Best: Taking a bath with Scout and Jude at Chanti's house.
Worst: Getting a swat for chewing on her shirt collar.
Best: The excitement of grading Zoë and Jude's reading and writing tests, and that they had done so well.
Worst: When Claire's office flooded, because she felt sorry for Clair having to clean it up and lose out on appointments and experience all the stress of the day.
Best: Playing Lego Town with the kids. It was like being a kid again.
Worst: The week was too busy, between swimming lessons and doubling-up on karate and going to the store and dealing with incidents at work. It just felt like there was so much time lost and no time to do what I wanted to do, and I was running around all week.
We also do things like act out "what to do" and "what not to do" scenarios. Today's 7 Habits topic was "think win/win" so the scenarios that the kids made up were things like sharing toys or putting on a puppet show. I think they get the concept.
- Programming, finished writing a stop watch program for Gabrielle to use in school.
- Gabrielle and I finished reading "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" today. We could go on for hours discussing the good points and bad points of the book. Overall it was a good experience and we have grown from the lessons it taught. Let's just say that habits 1, 2, 3, and 7 were spot-on and habits 4, 5, and 6 had some issues.
- I did a home workout for about 45 minutes while Gabrielle read to me.
- I enjoyed some less-than-healthy food today but I believe I did it in moderation and I have no regrets.
