We start our day at 730am. thePinkDiva loves to wake up early in the morning when I would really rather sleep in. But somehow this nightowl gave birth to not one, but two morning people. At least the little one likes to sleep in! I digress.
thePinkDiva rocked her math, and finally seemed to get the whole “Tally” thing which was good, because I’m not sure I could think of any more ways to explain it. I’m sure the M&Ms we used didn’t hurt.
GeekBoy woke up just as we were wrapping up tPD’s lesson, and practiced his handwriting. He wrote me a letter to inform me that he was angry that he did not have any m&ms. So of course he got a few before breakfast too.
Lil’Chicano woke up just as the older two were breaking out the bus donuts, aka entenmanns popems. Great timing kid! He practiced counting as he counted out 5 donuts for himself. Then he ate 2, grabbed 3 more, took a bite out of two more, and asked to be excused.
GeekBoy watered the grass seed in the back yard. Then he watered his little brother. Then, after a new set of clothes for the little guy, it was off to the library.
The library is an almost weekly trip. Normally we do this on Monday. Thanks to Lego League meeting, this week’s trip was postponed. It never ceases to amaze me at how many books they find that they absolutely must take home. Every week the amount we take home grows, and yet we are usually done with them all by the following Monday.
It’s a sight to make a momma’s heart swell with pride. This week’s total is 18. In all honesty, two of those are Mom’s wedding photography books… but since GeekBoy is doing the wedding photography with me, technically, they count since I’m teaching him a crash course in photography and all.
We’ve already read 6 of them. and they’ve only been in the house since noon (it’s 745pm now). We’ve also read 2 other books that we own. So that brings the total to 8 books read, in the last 8 hours. Wow. We do ALOT of reading in this house. And that’s a very good thing.
