3 in 30 - February Goals - Week One Check-In

My 3 goals for the month of February are:

Goal #1 - Lose 5 pounds
I used Leslie Sansone's Walk Off 10 Pounds DVD and walked one mile four different days this week. I was down 1.5 pounds by Thursday! Only 3.5 more to go this month!

Goal #2 - Read to my girls 5 days out of the week
On Tuesday, I read three books to the girls.  We read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst, Jamberry by Bruce Degen, and The Ugly Duckling as retold by Lillian Moore

On Thursday, I read two books -Jennie's Hat by Ezra Jack Keats and Have You Seen Louie? by Muriel A. Munro

On Friday, I read one book - The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper

Goal #3 - Organize my Recipes
Oops! I have not started working on my recipes.

I try to read to my children every evening before bed. We read a Bible story then a chapter or two from another book. They take turns picking the book we will read. A while ago we discovered a series of books you might enjoy. "The Martha Years" by Melissa Wiley, "The Charlotte Years" by Melissa Wiley, "The Caroline Years" by Celia Wilkins. Martha was Laura Ingalls great grandmother, Charlotte was her grandmother, and Caroline was her mother. Most girls enjoy the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, and mine have enjoyed these, also. Even Kendrick doesn't seem to mind them. Just thought I would pass that along. I have found them all at my public library. Happy reading!

Thank you for the book suggestions. I had forgotten about those books.
