We started out the New Year watching the Chicago Bears lose miserably. Quite upsetting for dear hubbie! He was devastated his team lost after Finally making it all the way to the Super Bowl. We had a fabulous day with our dear friends and celebrated the New Year by going to bed early! It’s icy in Chicago and the kids are enjoying the snow outside. My son is back at the Academy after the holiday break and loving it and his friends. He still continues his Kumon lessons and is just beginning to read simple words. His Math skills are AMAZING. The girls are at home with me and we are having a great, girly time.
