<3 February <3

February was a little bit more exciting than January. Scott and I started the Atkins diet on 1 Feb. To date, I have lost 7 lbs and Scott has lost 6 lbs which is reassurance to continue. We’ve been allowing ourselves one cheat meal a week and so far it’s working out great. Damien received his report card from school where he is doing well. He needs to work on rhyming and his conduct during art and music class, but has otherwise received Satisfactory and Outstanding marks in the rest of the areas.

This is a small park they built in one of the shopping areas.
02
It was a nice break from shopping for shoes…to which there weren’t any that Damien liked because they bothered his heel…
03
This is Damien’s new favorite thing–the Minecraft creeper. He plays with it, sleeps with it at night and wants it in all his photos. He’s sad he can’t bring it to school with him because he “misses” it. 
04
That face lol. Pure bliss
05
Damien filled out Star Wars Valentines for his Kindergarten class. I even had him write out the other boys’ and girls’ names.
06
We woke up to snow on President’s Day so Damien got to play in the snow for one day before it melted. I need practice building snowmen…

07
Damien with his Kindergarten class for the second quarter awards ceremony.
08
Damien had perfect attendance and was a SUPER star student–so proud! He insisted the creeper be included in the photo…
09
After WEEKS of being wiggly, Damien finally lost one of his front teeth last night. I may have helped push it out…

So excited lol

Today was beautiful outside so we had to go to one of the local parks. It was 66 degrees out! Damien thinks he’s smiling.

January Came and Went

It’s been almost two months since I posted anything so here’s what we did in January. It went by so quickly!

01
Damien working hard to get the gems out of the block. It was a lot of effort!

02
Damien and Scott playing Minecraft together 🙂 (Notice Damien’s creeper shirt)
03
Damien wanted so badly to use my colored pencils and coloring book. He’s so focused to make it look pretty.
04
Damien is finally able to play Catan Junior on his own team–he did so well!
05
We took Damien to Chuck-E-Cheese to have some fun. It was WAAAYYYY too crowded to really enjoy it.

Cashing in the tickets to get some prizes.
