Happy Blogaversary!!!!

I have been blogging now for the past two years! It really does not seem like it was long ago I followed my friends footsteps and started this little journal about my family. You guys have laughed with me and cried with me. Now I am glad to say i consider most of you all my friends. I know I have been slacking in this department and once again i vow to become more active. It is hard but I can make just 15 minutes to make a daily post. Hope all is well out there and I look forward to many many more blogoversarys to come!!!!!

A slight misunderstanding and My Roanas grades

I am going to say first of all I am very proud of my Roana and how well she is adapting in her new school. She has bountiful friends and wonderful teachers. I know she is trying her best and quite frankly that is all I can ask of her. She got 4 A's 2 B's and 2 C's on her report card. I was shocked by the two C's. Writing I could understand but not so much PE...

I let the days pass by and the more I thought about it the more I got pissed off. How can a child get an C in pe? One morning when I knew the PE teacher would be in I decided to go in and talk to her. I knocked on her office door and asked for a moment. I asked how I could improve her grade at home. She then informed me if I got her on a healthier diet at home and did more exercise then she should improve. She also told me her weight held her back and that I could make her lose some it would help too. I was flabbergasted but agreed.

After walking home and thinking about it I got pissed again. She is not my family physican and really should not be grading my child on my duties as a mom. The following morning I wrote the principal a letter. I got no response from the principal but the next day the PE teacher called me into the office. Finally she apologized and sat me down. She told me how she graded and we are better now. I am going to work on Roana's diet and for the last 3 days we have been playing 2 + hours outside. I am trying to take things to the next level and make our whole family more healthy.

My children are my pride and joy. Step on them and watch out, mama bear will be on the loose.
