  • I was pretty stressed last night when I went to bed thinking about what all the day held today (just school, really), but thankfully, things went as well as I could ever expect. I woke up in plenty of time to empty the dishwasher, take the dog out, brush her, and fold 3 loads of laundry so I was up fairly early for our school morning.
  • Reagan had already convinced me to not work with them this morning which was good because I was rushing to work with people all day long. We still managed to accomplish everything except all of my reading aloud with Campbell, Keaton and Whitman.
  • Instead of our normal 15-20 things that we read, I picked the one thing that I am trying to finish quickly, and then let them each pick something. Well, don't be surprised, but they picked the things that take the absolute shortest amount of time. That was fine with me since really, I knew that is what they were going to pick when I gave them the choice.
  • After working with them, it was lunch time, but I worked with Anderson some on the ACT before working with Whitman. He did finish his grammar book today so that is one less thing that we have to do together each day. 
  • This afternoon a few of us played Whitman's upside down goggle game. Anderson was the winner, but this game involves you putting on goggles where you can only see upside down. One of the tasks was drawing a tree. I could not do it at all-even though I could see that my pen was going the wrong way down the paper, I could not make my hand go the opposite way. It was a little bit concerning.
  • The rest of the afternoon was filled with more laundry-it really just never ends and some straightening before I joined Robby on the couch. It is a holiday after all! I ended up taking a little bit of a nap before Robby and I walked Bentley for a few miles.
  • Robby, Keaton and I went to On the Border tonight to eat supper. We couldn't get anyone else to go with us-or maybe it was becuase we told them that we would bring home ChickFilA too. Before we did get their suppers, we ran to Sams and Walmart to pick up a few things to help us get through the week. 
  • Once we made it home, the kids ate and I made Whitman his grilled cheese (that was his choice). And now I have settled onto the couch, but I can't decide if I want to watch a movie or read my book.
