My new black beauty
Well this is my new black beauty. She made her big appearance last night after it got dark out but that did not stop me and my six kiddies from jumping on our bikes and going for a spin.. I tied on a flashlight to the front of my bike and off we went down our country road.... We did not go far but boy did we have fun.. This is going to create more fun stuff for my kids, hubby and I to do.. My son with autism also got a new bike and my hubby. I will slowly be buying each of my other kiddies a new bike. My oldest daughter is riding my old bike which she able to do but the bike looks huge for her. So she will be next in line for a nice new bike.. I am so happy we did this.
On band news I am down 1.6 lbs this morning. I almost a a 2 lbs loss but will take this. That means I am 1.4 lbs away from 40 lbs. Ohhhh that might be next week.. So excited.
So this weekend my friend is suppose to be coming over to see us. She will hopefully stay a few days. I want to go take her to the new little casino an hour away to play bingo. I love bingo. Rarely get to go but love it.. I find it is a great way to sit and socialize and basically get out of the house.
On a bit more of a frustrating news my 8 year old has mild autism. I have been having so many issues at school with him I hate the phone calls home and being asked and what is going on in the home right now.. Nothing I know my son, I know when he is shutting down, I know not to push certain buttons.. I maybe judged as a parent when I say he is not going to be able to do the things other grade 2 students do I do not expect him to. He has his strengths he loves to build, make things out of paper listen to music and so on. He may not be a c student but he has his strengths. I know I am rambling on here but I just get so upset with the way education is setup.. I was ready to pull him out of school yesterday because he refused to get on the bus so my hubby had to go pick him up. I am just tired. Any suggestions from all my banded mommas out there????
Well anyways I got a nice shiny bike so need to smile it up... Hope everyone has an awesome weekend...
