Eme began walking this full throttle this week. We even had to make a stop to the specialty shoe store to try to find a brand that fits her teeny tiny feet. Her heels are the size of my thumb and all the shoes I have for her just slide right off. We ended up with the only pair of shoes in the entire store that fit her, pink and white Stride R*tes. They were also the only pair that were 50% off, a deal to good to be true! Eme is using her feet to get herself into all sorts of trouble. She is 'naughty very much.'
Between the grabby hands, the always in motion feet and her fascination with everything, she just can't keep herself out of trouble. My child that could not even roll over, sit up or feed herself 3 months ago is running through the house, destroying all things in her path. She takes no mercy on anything. The week ahead will be very difficult on me and I am already looking forward to next Friday....
We completed one full week of school and it was a total success. Though I have a few
not-so-kind words for our Superintendent who apparently has the brain of fly and has decided that no homework will be graded to count for our middle school students. Kudos to the teachers that are still sticking around and doing their best to 'teach' our kids. It's so unbelievable. This rule affects G, but I have to say on day 2, he was doing his homework at the dining room table. For what reason....? I have no idea, but he is a motivated kid and in the brainiac classes and is working on a full scholarship to his school of choice, but not to many kids have that motivation and drive and I can say that if this rule is still in place next year when C rolls into middle school then it will add more struggle on us to make sure that he knows the work and will certainly not help in preparing him for high school.
In other news: I have been juicing for a full week and I love it. I've had some pretty tasty drinks and some others that I had to choke down. I certainly feel better and have more energy.
I'll try anything once and even if I hate it, I'll drink it up for the health benefits.
W & his starfish. He wanted me to take a photo before he let him go. These photos were taken off my iphone, which turned out better than I expected. Emerson sleeping in her starfish float in the gulf.
