Such a great couple of days!!

Saturday, April 26, 2008
I'm so excited to be at the correct steroid level right now! My head is clearer, I'm sleeping better and I just "feel" better! I've started working with the puppies again on their manners. I just didn't have the energy, desire or drive to even want to try for the last couple of months. But, we're now back at it. I think it also helps that the weather is so much nicer, so they are outside a LOT and are a bit more tired. Plus, they are getting older and are calming down "a bit."

Anyway, on Thursday I worked at school and had a fantastic time! The first grade teachers had asked if I would mind doing some reading tests with the kids. It's called "text leveling." You just basically listen to the child read while the teacher records any errors. This lets the teacher know which book level, or degree of difficulty the child is able to read. It has to be done one-on-one and is very time consuming. So, it's difficult to do with 24 other first graders in the room. I was a bit nervous about doing it since it had been 3 years since I've done any text leveling. But, it was just like falling off a bicycle! I honestly don't think I could have done this a few weeks ago when I was on a higher dose of steroids. So, it was a good day! Of course I had to reward myself with a Starbucks Grande Caramel Frappacino Lite on the way home! ;)

Last night we had the 1 st Annual Mother/Daughter/Friend/Sister Gala at our church. My sister drove up from Lincoln to attend. We had dinner, entertainment, worship and just plain fun! I always love the opportunity to show off my wonderful sister!

Well, that's about it for now. I think it's time for a nap!
Thanks for reading.
