  • You know I had intentions of us doing some school at least on the way to Disney. I did wisen up before we left and didn't take anything. (Now Reagan had to do a bit for Comm Central while Anderson did have one essay to do on the drive back.)
  • My hopes in doing some school while we were out of town would have been to help ease us back into doing school. Thankfully, we didn't need to much "easing" today-things went fairly well.
  • Now, when I look back on the day-things probably went fairly well because Anderson and Graham were not here. Reagan wasn't here either but she doesn't cause too much of a commotion. The big boys didn't do any of their school for me either today (normal) so really their first day back will be tomorrow, and we will see how things really go then.
  • This was my first day back to wake up at a decent time. I know Disney was a decent time too-6:00 is certainly not the time I want to wake up on a school day, and it sure wasn't the time I woke up today. Now, if I did wake up at 6, I could be halfway finished with my chorelist and everything else when it was time to start school.
  • It was chilly on my walk with Bentley this morning. I even think that she was chilly becuase she kept moving at a pretty quick pace. We just did a mile and it didn't take long at all to get it done.
  • It also didn't take long for us to get our school done. I believe the reason Campbell and Keaton were working so fast was becuase they wanted to start work on the Christmas trees. First though, I had to finish school with Whitman after picking up the boys.
  • Robby even had to take the boys back to school today so they could go to their Christmas party. They all took gifts-Reagan ended up with the same gift card she took, Anderson had Graham's name so he got a decent gift since we bought it, and Anderson left with a 20 dollar bill and a gift card-so he racked up for sure. 
  • When Robby went to take them to their party, Campbell, Keaton, Whitman and I went to work on Christmas. I told them that our goal today was to just set up the Chrsitmas trees-2 in the living room, 1 in the girls' room, 1 in my bedroom, 1 in the kitchen and a super tiny one in the boys' room.
  • It took us about 3 hours but we were able to get all of that done and those boxes put away. The kitchen tree and girls' room tree is even decorated plus while I was at basketball with the boys' tonight, Reagan put up all of the kitchen Christmas pretties.
  • I have a bit more to do tomorrow-if I put up the Snow Village. And maybe I will....and maybe I won't. Don't you enjoy things more when you miss them for a little bit?
