so, getting back to my system of checks and more checks . . . we did ok last week. the walking and thank you card making are the two most difficult to fit in. i had to fudge on both of those categories last week. on several days, i let g count swimming as his mile while i walked laps around the pool for my three. i felt like singing "joshua fought the battle of jericho" whilst marching. you can see on tuesday we missed the walk too as the po po came early to lock up the pool and it was too late and we were too tired from vbs to try anything else. did i mention we were pulling a vbs double header last week? yep. 8:30 to noon at the baptist church around the corner and 6:15 to 8:15 at terena's. good stuff, but hard to work in our work in the middle especially when we added in four play dates. anyhoo, i still ended up with 21 miles for the week. go me. then i got totally miffed when i got on the scale and it said i'd gained 5 pounds. lying dial. i put it in the goodwill pile. you can see that this week we're not doing good at all. sunday was a fail. what can i say, i was miffed and unmotivated. we were headed for a clean sweep today till g fell asleep on the couch while i was piddling on the computer. oops. i'm thinking if we finish up our lists in the morning before turning on cartoons it will still count. i'm totally playing calvinball with myself. i realize this.
here are the other teeny tiny ones from last week. even though they're small, they make me feel way clever. we made them for his pm vbs teachers. the theme there was "mission to mars" . . . ah, yes, those milky ways totally make sense now, don't they? and the star really works the theme. and those cute pom poms are asteroids. yes they are. :)
