Back into the swing of things!

We are already half way through January! Crazy how time flies. I have set some New Year's Goals for myself. #1 is to drink less pop! #2 is to run 3 times a week. So far I am doing well and hope to achieve these goals in 2014! I will keep you posted.

I am sure you have seen on the news the cold weather that I have been having in Minnesota. This week I will be see above 0 temps and I am really looking forward to that so the kids and myself can get out of the house some!

Terms 1, 2, and 3 be reflecting on your school goals and we will discuss in our upcoming conferences.

Here's to a wonderful year together!
