Celebration .....and I may have fallen off the wagon.....
Turn this on, turn it up...an get your BOOG-IE ON!
SOOOO I FORGOT to mention something...In all of our celebrating the districts decision to put the English Second Language program back in the regular schools. I forgot to mention something spectacular!!!!
I got an email from Papillions sub-teacher yesterday, we use a Home School program, so that we can still get all the State testing, and really having a good understanding for where we are.
Papillion exactly twelve months ago tested at a second grade level when she first came home from Haiti. I knew we had (and still have) a LONNNGGG way to go!
Here is what she said:
Just wanted to let you know that Papillion met her goal for the 5th grade M-COMP so I’ve moved her to 6th grade probes. Great job!!! She is closing the gap!
WE HAVE MOVED PAPILLION FROM A SECOND GRADE MATH LEVEL TO SIXTH GRADE...FOUR GRADES IN ONE YEAR!!!
YEAH-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Miracles happen everyday!!!
Sooo to celebrate...we may have had a Pizza-Ice Cream-Movie Party for the kids...and if Hubbie had brought home something like Neapolitan Ice Cream, or Bubble Gum, or even Cookie Dough I would have been able to resist (Hey I have been on the no sugar kick for 5 days straight with NO PROBLEM)...but he didn't bring home, Bubble Gum or Neapolitan did he, nooo, nope he. Did. Not.
He brought home this:
So I ask you…what is a girl to do when her Husband brings home her two favorite flavors combined in the form of Ice Cream?....I hope you shouted “EAT IT” at the computer screen! ….Cause folks that is JUST what she did….and it was WORTH. EVERY. STINK’N. BITE.
I’m back on the wagon again….just a lil confession time…. Ya’ll understand!
Me an Scoobs are headed out for a lil mile er’ two run this morning.
We are finishing up our basement purge….hoping to work in the yard, and garage today.
Snow is melting, Sun is shining…Hope ya’ll have a fabulous day!
