  • I was lagging a bit this morning, but we still started our reading time by 8:45. We were able to do all of our reading in time for Reagan to jump on her Monday zoom meeting. I will say that each week I am surprised that she remembers her class-I sure can't keep up with it.
  • School was fairly uneventful-well, up until the window man came in the bedroom where we were working and took the window out! Ha! We knew he was coming and it was just Whitman, Reagan and I working in my bedroom. I will say that doing algebra 2 and second grade math all at once can kind of give me a headache. Though I probably enjoy the algebra 2 a bit more.
  • For chores today, I assigned Graham to make some banana bread for us. That boy grinned from ear to ear when he saw that was his job. He sure does love to work in the kitchen. As soon as he was finished with the banana bread, he went to work making his grilled cheese. Cooking may be his specialty, but clean up is definitely not.
  • Reagan spray painted trim for her mirror while sanded some Christmas ornaments. Robby and I worked on our menu for the weekend before I decided to run a few errands. We first ran to Grannymom's house to drop something off. 
  • Then the real fun started-Dollar Tree to find things for a Keaton's syran wrap ball for her birthday party. Next we ran into Micheal's because Reagan needs a pink boa-there wasn't one there. After that, it was down the row to Academy. Campbell had some money that she had decided to buy a skate board with. She was tickled with her purchase, and I was more than happy to chip in some money for a helmet.
  • Finally, we ran to Target where Keaton and Graham both found something to buy. One last stop to drop off a box before we hurried home. At home, Robby had most of supper ready but was waiting on my to chop up the potatoes.
  • He fried us some potatoes on the grill, and they were delicious. They sure dressed up our chicken sandwiches that we had tonight. I do think that everyone enjoyed them. Whitman, Keaton and I worked on a marble track tonight for a good while before it was finally bedtime for the crew.
