Even though I did not want to get out of bed this morning I pulled myself out and headed to the gym. Got a good workout accomplished. I am laughing at a couple of gals that have started coming a couple of the mornings I am there though as they talk more than they work. They casually walk on the treadmill for 5 minutes and then head to the machines very slowly. They take turns on the same machine and spend more time talking in between each switch. Deep down I say, "Good for you guys getting here consistently." but I also find it quite entertaining.

School got done once home, but Isaac's math had to wait for tonight with his dad. Tim and I have decided that he is stopped for now with long division until he develops some logic skills. He just can't wrap his head around the step-by-step process and this is something we learned when we had a "brain test" done. So my next thing to find is logic curriculum to help teach him logic and then it will eventually transfer to other things like math. Glad it wasn't just me seeing that math wasn't working for him.

Once that was finished we got busy cleaning the truck. Goodness but it was filthy inside! I was able to get a few things done around the house this afternoon, but once again it didn't go as I thought it would.

One bright spot...Kenzie (physical therapy worker) located someone to take her place next month! Will meet with her next month and get her paperwork done for payment. Kenzie believes she can take Isaac to the next level with his fitness as she is a personal trainer. Hopefully it works out!

Tomorrow...Isaac has a couple hours with Meg (habilitative therapy) and then we are all off for a co-op back-to-school party for several hours.

    Working out with a friend is what some people really need but truly you get out of a workout what you put into it. Good for them for getting there though.

    Glad to hear you have a replacement for Kenzie and a new approach to the math problem.

    Enjoy the co-op party today.

    I have suspected that Isaac's orneriness wasn't just being ornery for the sake of being ornery, but out of frustration and not wanting to admit he wasn't getting it.
