Update on the Costa Family...

Alright well, I guess I should update on us.

We'll start with John. He's been in school now for almost 2 weeks. He's going to school on base. I can't remember what it is called (he'll probably be disappointed for that lol) but its because he made rank that he has to go through a 6 week schooling. He's been super busy studying and has homework like crazy. That's pretty much taking up all of any free time he has. He does breaks on the weekend to breathe and relax a bit though so he doesn't go insane.

Tristan is still loving Kindergarten. He just can't get enough. They actually shut down the school two days last week because of bad weather and he was so bummed he couldn't go to school. He's reading better and better. He's getting much better about taking his time to sound out the word and not guessing. He is on level C reading right now, which is where they are supposed to be by the end of the year so he's doing just great!

Jacob is doing well also. We didn't send him back to preschool this semester so he is home hanging out with me. We have fun spending time together and running around. I have a good friend who has a daughter his age and they come over quite often to hang out and play so its fun for them. We've been having attitude bootcamp with little Mr. Cubby lately and he's getting much better about the testing. But of course we all know Jacob and he can't lose it all... I think that attitude is here to stay even if its just a little lol.

I'm also doing fine. My health is pretty much stable, little glitches here and there but nothing we can't deal with. I'm surviving :) Keeping up with the boys, animals, John and the house my time is pretty much taken up completely. I did go out the other weekend with a couple of my girlfriends though. We just went to dinner and to a bar to have a couple drinks and get out of the house for a few hours. It was alot of fun!

That's about it for us. I hope everyone is having a good start to their year and I'll check back in soon with pictures :)
