My month

Long time no blog... What have I been up to you ask? Well honestly I've been pretty busy, that hasn't changed. So let's see... I went to the home school conference in Winston Salem and worked at the Classical Conversations booth. I had a lot of fun and was lucky to talk to parents with children who are about my Emmas age of 5. I felt comfortable with that but was still so nervous. I'm so bad at things like that. I get nervous and my nervous tendency is to talk. Yep, I talk and talk when I'm nervous. You might think that would be a good thing and that would make it easy for me to meet new people But... I talk too much! I talk about anything and everything. People start to back away. What do I talk about? hmm, I talk about kids, what ever it is I'm doing, I can even put myself down in hopes that the person I'm talkin to will see that I'm "humble" or whatever. Like that makes me humble, oh well. So I got through that and went the next week to Classical conversations tutor training. In that case there wasn't a lot of talking on my part more insecurity and quiet because that's how I get when... I feel insecure.
Also this month I joined a Crossfit bootcamp. If you don't know what Crossfit is go to I joined with my oldest daughter who is 16 and I'm enjoying spending he time with her. Crossfit kicks our butts! I also started eating differently so I have been eating Paleo. Paleo is based off of what hunter-gatherers ate in Paleolithic times. Basically meat, veggies, fruit and some nuts. No dairy, grains, sugar or beans. I absolutely love it and feel great! I've Lost 5/6 pounds the first 3 weeks. No one in the household has jumped on the paleo band wagon intentionally but we cut a lot of carbs out of our meals and they haven't complained.
Emma started swim lessons an is doing great. Cameron got her Stanford teat scores back and they showed me where she was struggling. The areas I already knew
About but that's ok at least it confirms that I was right. We are working on her lower leveled subjects which are math and reading. She hates both subjects so I'm reading to her at night and having her practice her times tables so she can master those.
My hubby was off of work for 10 days so the kids haven't done any work but hopefully after swim lessons are over we can start again! So that is my month in a nutshell. Busy, but so far going great!
