Our girl has quite the eye, doesn't she? Two more photo candidates for the student art show. Hard to pick just one.
The rigor in fourth grade just escalated. Four nights a week Grace is to read a chapter in two books, write a summary for one and prepare for a next day test on the other. Then there's spelling words to study, math quized to correct, multiplication tables to learn and start planning to build a replica model of a California mission (every 4th grade kid does this). Whew!
Yesterday we helped Grace with the first assignment of reading and summarizing. She's a quick learner and in no time will complete these type of assignments easily.
These photos were taken last week in the backyard.
Okay, new meds: Did they do anything. I'm smiling cautiously. Yesterday's average on meds was 101/59 which is pretty damn good. The medication pamphlet explains that the drug relaxes arteries in easing the flow of blood. This is funny. Most of my life I've been anything but relaxed....tense, stressed, driven. It's most logical that the arteries need relaxing. Ya think?
Why the caution? Still still to be determined is the cause of my high blood pressure or will I be like many middle age adults and remain medicated for the remainder of my "tour of duty."
At ease, Bob!
