The last 10 days have been a little slower, more relaxed, but still busy.
Jocelynn's first horseback riding lesson was canceled on the 17 (due to weather, it has been pretty much nonstop rain here), she was disappointed, but understood. Thankfully the weather held out last night and she was able to complete her first lesson!!!!
Riding Mo for the first time!
She is very excited about going back each week. I love the lesson she is learning about caring for a horse and how much work it is! Also we will be entering a few competition, I am a very proud Momma right now!
Dance lessons are on the back burner again.....John is not working steadily. Once he gets a new job (which is applying for new one every day) or his current job picks up on work we will sign her up.
John and I are still making it to the gym every other night. I actually look forward to going to the gym now....what a change in my attitude. I am excited to see what the end of the month brings, how much total weight we each have lost and how many inches!!!
I am also excited about celebrating our Anniversary (2 weeks from Friday). I can't believe I have been married to this wonderful man for 9 years!
Jocelynn is coming to the end of the school year. I am so proud of the progress she has made and everything she has learned. I am excited to see her final report card, spending the day with her at Fun Town for the end of year field trip (6/3) and watching her graduate from Pre-School (sometime around 6/17).
Also Jocelynn had only 1 accident for the month of April! So proud of her! John and I decided to take her bowling! It was so much fun!!!!!
Jocelynn's Turn! The Bowling Ball was a little to heavy....lol
She also had a Dr. appointment this past monday. (5/9) Nothing to worry too much about, basically a weight check. In December the Dr. was concerned with her weight, we had an appointment with a nutritionist, and have been trying to have healthier options to eat and snack on and get in more activity. Dr. A just wanted to see the progress we made, and check her weight and height. I am happy to say he is pleased, also I am "upset" to say that Jocelynn has grown 1.5 inches since December....... WOW.....what happened to my little girl? We will also go back in at the end of summer to see how she is doing.
As busy as life is right now, it is only going to get busier.....Along with her Daisy meetings, this week Jocelynn will begin horseback riding lessons and I will be calling this week to sign her up for dance classes (starting early June) at Northern Explosion Dance Studio. She excited about all these activities and it will keep us on the go!!!!
May......I can't believe it is May already! Were did the 1st third of the year go????
Not a lot has happened in the last few days.....spending a ton outside enjoying the nice weather! Jocelynn was finally able to use her scooter she received for Christmas////she loves it, she is frustrated that she didn't know how to ride it immediately, but I told her that will come!
She has also been able to ride her bike and her power wheel, both of which she will have outgrown by the end of summer......I really wish she would stop growing! She is much better on her bike this year than last, her legs are stronger and she has a little more confidence.....she still likes to keep it on the slower side, but i know that will change as she gets more comfortable. She has learned how to use the breaks (a foreign concept last year) and I know that will help her.
John and I are still going every other day to the gym.....and we love it! For the Month of April John lost a total of 18 pounds and I lost a total of 12.8.....not to bad, and we are keeping with it which I am so proud of us for doing!
Jocelynn is going through a rebellious phase.....she is determine to get her way at all time and I have news for her....NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!! She has also started crying when it is time for John and I to go to the gym....mind you, she will either be headed to bed in about 15 minutes or is already in bed, but she breaks my heart with her "Mommy I will miss you" through tears......
On a positive note, she managed to only wet the bed 1 night in the month of April! WAHOO!!!!! I am super proud of her and we will be doing something fun in the next 2 weeks to celebrate this achievement! We have decided to go bowling! It should be fun!
