  • It is sure hard in the mornings when I have to walk up the stairs to wake up everyone. It does rarely happen but gracious me, if Whitman didn't have to go to preschool, we might have all just slept in this morning.
  • After Whitman left, the kids found their cereal and I read and read and read. We were a bit behind, from last week, on all of our read aloud work so we used this quiet morning to catch ourselves up. 
  • Then everyone started on their school work. The little girls were pretty needy today getting back in the swing of things, and I do believe that Anderson plays a game to just see how slowly he can finish his school work. I think that this bothers me so because I was the complete opposite-do it fast and turn it in even if there is mistakes. Anderson, however, is do it slow with no mistakes at all. The boy only missed 2 or 3 math problems today-he is the epitome of slow and steady wins the race.
  • It was 12:30 when we finally ate our lunch. The kids are still in to making their sandwiches into paninis. Keaton still loves the toaster oven so when we finish lunch, we have lots of appliances to put back in the cabinets.
  • Next up was chores and there seemed to be lots of them to do today. Now, from about 1 until 3, I have no idea where the time went. I did manage to mark a lot of things off of my list today but I was shocked when I looked up noticed that it was already 3.
  • Pops and Nonna brought home Whitman and he was so excited to show them his Christmas tree. By this time, the boys were outside with their remote control cars. Everyone soon went outside and the neighbors eventually came out. I walked on the treadmill for a bit and then helped Robby some afterwards. He put lights on the wooden Christmas trees that Tony had made for us last year.
  • It was cold outside so I didn't last too long but the kids were outside until almost 8. They had supper and showers when they came in. Then there was a bit of downtime before bed. No one turned on their Christmas trees tonight since those bright lights just seem to cause a commotion.
