Last night was different because Anna decided to stay at choir practice with Brian. I took the two little ones home and decided just to feed them instead of waiting for everyone.... to mix stuff up more, I fed them in the living room! They LOVED the change and had a blast! I wish a could post all of the pictures, but I'm still learning to use my camera; so some aren't the clearest :(
Today we officially started our "homeschool preschool"...phew..... I wish I could say that our day went soo smoothly and the kids just lapped up all the learning opportunities and minded me soo well.... the day was a struggle starting with the 5, 5:45 and 6:30am wake ups, the extreme poopey diaper leak and the emotional breakdown over the reading lesson....
Good thing Momma got in a little Bible reading and contemplation during the morning clean-up/bath playtime resulting from the diaper leak. AND I looked at what we wanted to accomplish today and we completed it ALL....except 1/2 of the reading lesson:)
I had a good estimate of a schedule but with having toddlers and preschoolers flexibility is REQUIRED.... but I think tomorrow I'm going to break the reading into TWO separate sessions.... one reason is so that Anna doesn't get overwhelmed with direction (which I think was the reason for the breakdown today) and the second reason is that it's challenging to keep Anna focused when after 15minutes or so of quiet activity the 2 little ones are back to wrestling and chasing each other around the house!!
