Homemade Pizza Night!
(click here for today's pictures)
  • I had to wake everyone up this morning.  Oh, I wished that they could have slept a bit longer but the cinnamon toast was coming out of the oven so it was time to wake up.  Keaton got herself ready and could not wait to go to school and again, Graham started working on his work as soon as he could.
  • This worked out really well for Graham because he was finished with school probably before 10 this morning.  Now on the other side of the spectrum was Anderson.  I try to walk around and check on everyone's progress between working with each kid and every time I would check on Anderson, I would end up saying something like this "it has been 45 minutes and you did 8 math problems?" (He understands everything but is so distracted)  Guess when Anderson finished his school work-during movie time this afternoon!  Amazing, how quickly he finished his work then.
  • We stopped school early this morning so we could have time to work together and do our science.  Then after chores and lunch it was time to take Whitman to the doctor.  It seems that he has something like what the boys had.  We were given the same medicine that the boys were given and my Whitman was so excited because he wanted to take medicine each time the boys were given some!
  • And speaking of the doctor's appointment-the appointment was at 1:40 and we were walking out the door before 2.  Love those after lunch appointments.  Then we went to Grannymom's house to pick up Keaton and since the day was nice, we ended up playing a game of kickball and having a popsicle before heading home.
  • Once at home, the kids started on their movies and I started on getting a few things accomplished.  When Robby came home, we started on our supper-homemade pizza.  The kids have gotten better at making their pizzas (less mess) and everyone enjoyed their pizza but mine was still the hit (cinnamon strudel)  
  • After supper, the kids watched some tv, played the wii and played some until it was bedtime.  We let them stay up a bit later than usual but that was probably good because everyone went to bed without a bit fuss.  Whitman was delighted that he was able to see 6 or so deer before going to bed-it made his bedtime routine complete!
