dyk and I think Deklan is dyslexic and am having trouble helping him space and size his language sentences.

dyk he's struggling with a few of his words too - -the shorter ones like "of" and "an"

dyk meanwhile, I find it curious with our garage sale that we don't have very many "large" items, like carseats, baby stuff, (other than a stroller) and furniture

dyk I am not sure what that'll mean for proceeds but it always is more than we expect to make!

dyk on the training track --- I haven't run in a week, too stinking hot

dyk but the temps are cooling next week and I am going to do a couple 4-5 mile runs

dyk I am down about 20 lbs --- which is now noticable to the general public and my bras are all too big. Oy.

dyk the other is weekly -- the Backpack program for homeless and low income children they get a backpack each Friday to take home and it has food for the weekend and they bring it back Monday
