Third Grade

I know, I have been terrible about keeping things going on the blog... Going back to work full time has definitely taken a toll on my time for things like this that I enjoy.

Ayden Jane is still doing well in third grade. She does struggle some days in the afternoon with maintaining the energy demands of a full school day. Her teacher is awesome, however, and finds ways around it. If there are things Ayden Jane just cannot get done while she is at school, she sends them home on the weekend. There is no time during the week to add on to her current homework and extracurricular activities.

The plan was for soccer 2 nights a week and swim team 2 nights a week. The timing did not always work out so most of the time she made it to soccer just once. She also attends and after school club one day a week.

This coming spring we are looking to trade in the soccer for girls on the run. Ayden Jane is not entirely sold on the concept yet but I am hopeful. Basically, girls on the run is close to home and I think she would be very successful in it. Soccer is a bit of a drive and, I hate to tell her, not her forte.

Point of concern is that as we were walking on the beach with the dogs today, I noticed her crazy leg again. She ran with Tucker and that darn right foot was not aligned like we worked SO HARD on. Of course, the PWS momma in me wants to panic that her foot is a sign that her hips are internally rotating which is a sign that her back is crooked! We have a scoliosis check with Shriner's in February and hopefully we can get a quick check in with the amazing Mrs. Jen over Christmas break.

On the positive side, Ayden Jane is finally a totally independent reader! She sat and read 175 pages of a book in one sitting last night. Until then we would read chapter books, but she always wanted to read them together. More intersted in the time with one of us than in the actual reading.

Big things coming up for Ayden Jane over the next couple of months. Trip to FL to see Dr. Miller, labs and a trip to Shriner's.
