The kids did really good this week. I however had a slight melt down mid week. I'm still trying to figure out the reason. I'm not sure if it was because my sister/sister-in-law asked me if I'm pregnant. (I'm not.) The subsequent frantic digging out the workout video and daily work out. (The dreaded Shred) Or the vegetarian diet I've been on most the week. (We had no meat in the house and I didn't feel up to grocery shopping.) Or if it was simply getting settled into a new routine.
The jury's still out. (Is it bad that I'm talking about myself as multiple people?)
So today, the kids worked hard in school. HARD. When the (figurative) school bell rang they put their minds to it and settled into their seats and worked hard for several hours. They read science and identified the parts of an insect using insects they collected, Tyler did double math, history was read and an oral review quiz taken. Reading assignments accomplished. The weekly Bible verse and poetry memorized and recited. Grammar and art work reviewed and proudly displayed. The required penmanship work was written and self corrected. What was lacking?
And for that we headed to a well deserved recess. At the sprinkler park. After all, the kids need socialization right? We called another homeschool family in the area who is starting their school year next week and headed out. The kids had so much fun running out the wiggles from the week.
Tyler and Becca were so busy running around and making new friends along with the friends we brought that I could only get posed photos of them.
Hope on the other hand was a more daring this trip, but still stuck close to the edges. She is getting brave about sticking her face in the water. Surprise, baby, it's cold.
