Winter fun

We have done some fun things  this winter since the weather hasn't  been so bad. Jack and I always have a blast at the monster truck show. We have been having lots of family  game nights.  My fellas are super competitive with each other . Jack and I also finished our winter reading logs and celebrated with new books,dvd's and cd's from the library,and we played Legos and picked up some crafts at the craft table. I made an oragami bookmark while Cathy was reading her story  from speech class to me,then we worked on math,not her favorite, but she gets  it done. I went to the Bunco dirty Santa party and then a few weeks later a Bunco party, so fun to eat,drink,chat and play a game with the girls.  Jack graduated from white belt to yellow belt in kungfu. He was so proud and we were too.  He went to his friend's swim party at the Preston center on WKU campus too. He loves that campus. He can't  wait for his STEM-TASTIC class to  start soon. This will be his first WKU Super Saturday's classes for talented and gifted kids. This kid amazes  me every day. You always worry that  you are failing as a parent and/or homeschool parent,but when he knows  things that a 4th grader shouldn't  know yet but does,it makes me happy.  He has even started asking me if he can read over the required 20 minutes per day and to do extra science and Spanish.  He wowed my Mom this past  weekend  when he beat her at the game Hangman and with the word plasma. Then he went on to tell Nana that plasma is the 4th element of matter. I'm  so proud of him. He also did real well during Star Science Camp at the library and few weeks ago. 

Lastly,it is hard to find clothes for my size,I'm at the cusp of being plus size.  12 is too small and 14 is sometimes too big. Thank goodness A-line and baby doll clothing made a comeback and it doesn't  look like leggings and boots are going  anywhere. I love  this online store called the Mint Julip Boutique and I get  a lot of my clothes there.
