Today was busy, yet extremely PRODUCTIVE...and I still got my workout in, without feelings of being overwhelmed or that I could be doing something else.
This morning, we spent time pulling out all the clothes that didn't fit the girls anymore. Once we made room, Gretchyn got a new wardrobe, compliments of a younger Corynn. Corynn made note of a few things she needed replaced, though she was pretty set with having access to some stuff I passed down to her.
This afternoon, we spent time organizing books in the new bookshelf that was long overdue and cleaning up the playroom.
I fit my workout in between, after grabbing a quick bite to eat and starting a rump roast in the Instapot.
Had I had an hour long + workout scheduled, I most likely wouldn't have done it, and may not have accomplished what I did.
The 25 minute workout was perfect and it was a blast lifting with Shaun T. Usually he's making me jump all over the place, but the circuit training was amazing.
I even had time before dinner to run to the book store and get the girls new study Bibles.
My message to you: Figure out what works best "for you", and do that, then you will be successful! ♥️
Martial arts is a great way to teach your children life skills. As educators, it is important to us to set our students up for success not only in martial arts, but in life.
In this video Instructor John works with the 5 & 6 year olds on control. Because this age group learns best by physically experiencing a lesson, their quest is to do their punches towards John without touching him. Watch as they get closer and closer to John but never touch! #awesome #selfcontrol #5yearold #6yearold #martialarts #karate #lifeskills #control #klcdojos #storrscenter #mansfieldct #windhamct

There was ice in the water tables this morning! It was a great learning experience talking about how the ice got there. Of course they got to see what happened when they threw it on the ground and then they tried to step on it to crush it. Once the pieces were pretty small they wouldn’t break any smaller... but one boy figured out that if you put the ice on the crack in the cement then step on it, it will beak again. #discovery #LetThemPlay
So I haven’t written an update on Chase’s progress in awhile. I guess it’s like anything – it’s been going so well that I think we have just gotten used to our new normal. It’s pretty rare these days for me to be thinking about problem behavior, aggression and/or excessive self stim- (constant rocking, yelling or loud humming). We had 17 straight years of these behaviors at home, at school and in the community and although he had made so many great strides over the years with his behavioral program these were still a daily occurrence in our world. As parents we often sat in fear of that dreaded phone call from the school telling us about Chase’s problem behaviors. He was not GIVING everyone a hard time- he was HAVING a hard time. He was struggling to be comfortable in his own skin. BUT today as we sat at his IEP meeting it all became so apparent. Today we read the words that we could have only dreamed of in the past - Chase has demonstrated NO negative problem behaviors!!! How is this possible? I am sure there are many reasons- he has an amazing team, a loving family, he’s in the right program and we have worked on these items for YEARS- but the reality is- the only thing that changed this year was CBD!! The power of a plant! I can’t unknow what I know now- I can only hope to help others on their journey. Imagine how much all of our lives have been impacted! #healthyplant #cbdchangedourlives #bestiepever #lifeskills #cbdautism #autismsupermom #turningovereverystone

We have a new kitchen staff member. Her methods are unconventional;hygiene standards low; and overall productivity is questionable.
