I started school off today by handing the older two their math text books and telling them to throw them away. Oh how fun that was! I admit complete failure on the math front. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but nonetheless it was our weakest subject by FAR this year. I can DO math, but translating that with the patience and discipline it requires to drill these concepts into their heads successfully is TOUGH. I am excited for Teaching Textbooks next year…excited beyond belief. The kids did some sort of tribal dance around the outside garbage bins and 4th and 5th grade math is officially on our completed list as well now.
We had some friends over for pizza lunch today and had some time to play. I am thankfully feeling fairly decent these days until about 3 pm or so. We did a lot of art, penmanship, history, and Bible today. I also snuck in some homemade molasses cookies and got a 2 hour nap. Taylor made homemade lip balm and it was kinda yummy smelling. Cameron mastered Spongebob on Nintendo and had multiple nerf gun wars. Emma, a girl after my own heart, is snuggled in pj’s at my side watching Max and Ruby and playing it on my laptop.
It’s just another lazy, stress free day around here and we are enjoying what is probably our last rainy week of the season.
Now there is just 29 school days left until summer.
