I haven't had time to write as often as I like, we have cereal for dinner, and I have to take all three kids grocery shopping (and I mean, we were out of food, had nothing left to eat, and we spent 3 hours going through my long list because no longer would a quick trip inside for milk and bread cut it). And when Adam is away, I always think I'm going to get some big project done. HA! I feel like a superhero if I can keep the laundry going, feed the kids three times each day, get some school work done, and shower. And let me tell you, there are days one or more of those things don't get done.
Anyway...I just wanted to say
Fortunately, this weekend will bring some relief. A lovely holiday weekend and the opportunity to spend time together as a family and hopefully with some friends. I could use the time to connect with others. :)
Is it Summer Yet?
Ok, so how was school this week? It was kind of difficult. The neighborhood kids are all on spring break and we got several little knocks on the door each day that it wasn't raining asking for the boys to be outside. And the answer was always yes. Even when they have chores to do or school work to finish, the answer was yes. Maybe it shouldn't have been. Maybe I should have insisted that they complete everything FIRST, but all work and no play makes for a very boring childhood. :)
This week, Adisson finished up his Science unit of organisms and also started a new unit in Social Studies on geography (one of his favorite social studies topics). He worked on his handwriting, very very reluctantly, and his math lessons. He also climbed trees, played in the dirt, participated in a rousing game of viking wars with his little brother, and spent a ton of time on their new outdoor toy.
Zander has found a new love of Time4Learning when I was able to get it on his tablet! Ohmygoodness! He can do school ANYWHERE! I think his favorite place so far has been on my bed when I'm working on laundry. (I hate laundry. Just wanted to say that. IT.NEVER.ENDS.) Between the new app, his Spelling City app, and some free puzzles online, he was left with just handwriting practice and reading to do "the old-fashioned way."
Upcoming Plans and Blog Posts
I also have some things I want to talk about here on the ol' blog next week like Adisson's entrepreneur venture, Co-op news and info., and a review of the play we saw last weekend. I would have loved to have written all of those posts this week but I was busy ....with life. :) You get it.
