Natalie is now in a Christian school 4 days a week (LOVING it). Janelle and Riley are both taking several classes outside of mom and doing great. Yay for us!!
I'm pining a bit for those years of snuggling on the couch in a giant pile reading books together and using our lunch bits as math manipulatives. Algebra 2 and Chemistry are NOT lending themselves to chip piles and cheese bits. We all have to grow up sometime I guess.
Whatever. Frankly, I wasn't very good at that fun part of school anyway, although I admit to still being really proud that I once let Riley dissect a rattlesnake at the backdoor of our house and called it a day.
Anywho....We're now into October and are working our way into a rhythm. Some days it's AWESOME and others...more like that nauseous feeling you get on the high seas.
Our calendar looks like a rainbow threw up on it. I thought all those different colors for each kidlet were going to look so bright and happy. HA! At least I can tell everyone "Find your color to see what's up for you today." :)
Charlotte even gets in on the
It's great fun.
My crockpot is my best friend as is my washing machine and frankly, my love of routine and lack of clutter. If I didn't have that - you wouldn't be able to find my floor or want to use our bathrooms.
Everyone is freaking out a bit over how tight our schedules are running this year. I figure if we're totally hard core for a few months, when we add in a new baby in December (MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!) and everything comes to a screeching halt, it will all even out. :) Documentaries will become our best school friend.
Ahhhh....life schooling. What a party.
