Ross is taking SAT's this week. I tried to explain the importance of the testing to him without stressing him out about it. He was worried that it would be hard, but after I told him that it was all things he had already learned he felt better. My main concern is that he focuses and pays attention to what he reads. If he does those two things, he'll ace them!
Well, just wanted to do a quick post and not get behind. Just gotta remember that it just takes a few minute and some actual thinking to do a post that is meaningful. Love blogging. So glad I decided to do it.
Have a happy hump day!

Spring means new beginnings and renewal as well as many other things. But new beginnings is where my heart is at right now.
I have lost to date 30 lbs. !!!!!!!!!!!! I am ssssssssssoooooooooo HAPPY! But even more I feel like I am actually getting somewhere and my goals are able to be seen at the end of a very long tunnel ahead of me! Next will be 40 then 50! F*I*F*T*Y! I can hardly wrap my head around that. 50. That's almost what my son weighs. I have a long way to go, but after tonight's weigh in, I feel like a new person is emerging. Actually it's not a new person. It's a person that I remember. A person that I liked to be and felt good about myself. I felt pretty. I am seing that person come back to life and it is AMAZING.
I feel for the first time since I had my son-almost 7 years-that I,me, myself is coming back to life. I LOVE being a mommy and a wife, but I put ME on the back burner for to long and my fire has been rekindled!! I lost myself for a while and it was okay to be where I was, but I wasn't happy with how I felt. I need to be that happy person FOR my son and husband. I'm getting back there, and it feels WONDERFUL!

I am SO proud of Ross. He is such a smart boy. Not that I'm trying to be partial. I'm just really so very proud of how hard he works at his school-work. He is so good at reading, writing and his spelling is just stellar. It comes so easy to him. I am so glad that he is blessed to not have to struggle. He isn't exactly "fond" of school. There are certain aspects that he enjoys ( playground of course), but math is more of a challenge. He really has to "work" at it. But he did get a 100% this week on his math test!!!!! WOO HOO!
I just wanted to get it out how proud my boy makes me. We are so fortunate that he can go to a good school with great teachers. I hope that he finds school and it's challenges something that he will look forward to and want to do good.
Hope I didn't ramble to much. I'm just really a proud momma today.

This makes me SOOO happy!
For others to notice is big for me. Anyway I'm thrilled!! Had a great walk this morning with my pal Lynn.
Ross went back to school today after his spring break and was not excited about it. He woke up crying at 5:45 saying he was going to miss me way to much at school! AAWWW! My sweet boy! We got past it. I love every stage that he grows into, but some days I really long to hold that "little" boy that seems like I held just yesterday. He has always been a momma's boy, yet he is all about being JUST like daddy.
Hope you had a happy Monday and a good week ahead!

Looking forward to walking again Friday. Gotta get my metabolism kicked back up where it was! I haven't gained any since I was I on the mend, but I only lost minimally. I've got some ever close approaching weight goals and I am feelin' the need to burn some calories!!
Gonna go have a picnic tomorrow with my sweet boy by the water. Spring break is flying by! Can't wait until Lynn gets back from San Diego. I forsee retail therapy in the very near future!
Hope you had a happy hump day!

We had SO much fun today! The Imaginarium was awesome and we look forward to going back soon! Ross got do everything, even touch snakes and a baby alligator! He was so brave. And when the man was telling us about the Ball Python, he explained that she was expecting babies soon. After each presentation of an animal, he would ask if any of the kids had any questions, and Ross did about the python.....how did the babies get in her?!!!!!!!! Well the man handled it well and I guess we will be having an in depth talk about animals mating soon. Yay!
It was a great place! Lots of different hands on things for the kids. We picked a good day. It wasn't crowded at all. I think it was a great spring break plan.
