8:00 AM – Stayed up too late the night before (story of my life) and am purely exhausted. I get up when the girls do, and realize we are on our last bit of oatmeal. I gotta go to the store…
9:00 AM – Breakfast is done, dishes are done. And Zachary is already ready for a nap. He’s so cranky lately! I blame teeth. I ask the girls to go play upstairs so I can finish the last few edits of a post-partum hospital shoot that I did a few weeks ago.
10: 00 AM – I give the girls some crayons to color with and some Goldfish to eat while I finish up. It’s taking longer than I thought. But they are turning out awesomely! So I guess I shouldn’t complain.
10:15 AM – Both girls come downstairs with pens in hand, and wave them at me in unison making “wand” noises.
10:30 AM – Bribe the children with cookies while I print off the CD label. And recheck another order that I had to make sure it was perfect as well.
11:00 AM – Girls are rewarded for their good behavior. And we have lunch. I check on Zachary to make sure he’s still alive. He’s alive and wake, just chewing on Batman. I bring him downstairs so he can eat something more substantial.
NOON – I help the girls clean their room, during which Audrey has a melt down. Time for her naptime!
12:15 PM – Audrey is down for a nap. Or rather she’s kicking and screaming. Sydney and I go downstairs to start school. We only have a few subjects today since it’s Friday. Zachary happily eats rolls while in the highchair.
We start every day of school with a prayer, and the Pledge of Allegiance.
While doing math I am reminded, yet again, how much I would like to buy a bead holder and use it for the Math-U-See blocks.
For gospel we watched a NEST movie, to illustrate what we had been learning about. I love these movies! After she finished the movie she took their DVD quiz.
While she was watching her movie I found a sticky note from her in my New Testament binder. I love that girl
After she finished her few subjects for the day she got to do her favorite. ART TIME! She finished her water color painting from last week. I adore Home Art Studio, it’s really the best for elementary ages. I love all the projects!
Fridays are a great day of school. They are usually very easy light days! Sydney was thrilled when she finished her All About Spelling reader and understood that she had read every page of that book, all 146 pages! She felt SO proud of herself!
Now, I’ve got to find my bee stickers that Audrey has run off with!
(Am I allowed to say I’m proud of myself for finishing this challenge? I hope you all enjoyed reading about crazy days!)
