Long over due update

A Day Off
I have finally given myself a day off! I've been working overtime for so long now. Some nights it's only a few hours but it still drains me to pick up work 7 days a week. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with my time--except sleep! Wednesday I was only able to pick up 3 hours so it will almost be like having 2 days off.

Jordan is Starting to Read
Jordan is really into sounding words out lately. She finds words everywhere and tries to sound them out. She was reading everything the other night from the words on my t-shirt to the words in her work books. They haven't learned any word blends but she can do the individual sounds for most letters. At night when we read a bedtime story she picks out the words she knows like: the, one, to, a, at, but, can (there are some others but I can't think of them right now). It's so fun to watch her sound the words out but also sad because I know my baby girl is growing up.



Courtney Has Decided to Move Back to South Dakota

Courtney has decided to move back to SD at semester. She is going to help take care of her great grandmother. Her grandma is not doing well health wise and she needs someone to stay with her so they don't have to put her in a nursing home.

It's good to see an update from you. I hope that you have a WONDERFUL day off! Congrats on Jordan's learning to read. Calista's doing the same thing. How do you feel about Courtney leaving?
