  • Whitman crawled in bed with me and asked if he could eat a "fast breakfast" in the living room. That would be fine except that meant that we had to hurry. He had a bit of trouble picking out a "fast" breakfast especially since I wasn't too sure what a "fast breakfast" because my suggestion of a pop tart was turned down.
  • He figured out something to eat and was soon on his way to school. Ms. Stacy wasn't there today so I am sure that school was just a bit different for him, but he still enjoyed it. I then ran upstairs to start waking up the girls.
  • Campbell and Keaton have been sharing a bed for almost a week now. I have heard that Keaton is scared, and Campbell sleeps better with Keaton next to her. I don't really care as long as they are quiet, sleep and as long as people know that they really do each have their own beds.
  • School went very well today even though it seemed to take forever for some of my people. Anderson is a pretty slow typer so typing his 3 paragraphs took him a while, but he finally finished. It was around 12:30 when we finally had our lunch. Everyone ate different things but most everyone used the panini maker today. I had some of Robby's leftover meatballs from last night, and they were still delicious.
  • We started on our chores after lunch. My little girls had acted a fool during our read together time so they earned some extra chores. I don't know what I hadn't thought of this idea before, but it will be my new go to! I enjoyed getting a few extra chores accomplished without having to do anything.
  • We were pretty busy this afternoon. I was able to work on my crazy school room closet, and hopefully by the end of the week, it will a clean, clean closet. I was even able to get on the treadmill before Whitman came home with Nonna and Pops.
  • Before Whitman came home, Graham made him a fort in my bedroom. Every time Whitman comes home, he wants for Graham to make him a marble track so today, Graham beat him to the punch and made a fort instead. Whitman was pretty pleased with it and spent a good deal of the rest of the afternoon in it-reading a book with Reagan, doing his school work with me and watching movies on his ipad.
  • We didn't eat until after 6 tonight. We had leftover chili for supper, and it fed everyone. I am still so proud of my instant pot beans that I made for our chili. After supper, the kids and I played an indoor game of soccer. Thankfully, there were no major injuries other than a bloodied toe. 
  • Afterwards, we watched some tv and ate a few cookies. Everyone but Anderson started on their school work tonight. This is helpful but it is also a problem because tomorrow they will be finished early with nothing to do except for bothering Anderson! 
  • Tomorrow is another school day for Whitman, and then skating for everyone.
