And here's where my snuggly little girl had found to be cozy in with Mommy and Daddy's laps missing:)
Yesterday we headed into town at 7:3O ish and spent all morning running those errands that HAVE to get done.... grocery shopping, doctor's appt, things for the house, and "my favorite" getting the replacement part for my dishwasher (I'm totally spoiled by the dishwasher and washing by hand is getting OLD!).
When we returned home... everyone was hungry and exhausted PLUS we had plans to have dinner with some of our church deacons. To make our evening "work"... everyone (except Dadddy) laid down for a much needed nap:)
On a day like that, WHEN does school get done?????
I always feel bad that we "miss" days of school when we have appts or errands... but I would have NO groceries and none of our errands/projects would get completed!! I guess we could do all that on Saturday... but on a day Brian tries to spend with the family, it would stink to be in the car or running in and out of stores... not quality family time at all. Oh, and many evenings are out b/c of activities OR just getting back sooo late (we have 1.5 of travel time to get to the big town)!
I do have a couple of solutions.... one is to bring our work with us! Another is to do the work when we return home (won't have worked yesterday)! But often times we have Saturday school:)
And so when we get moving this morning, that's what we'll be up to for a little while:) We have a bit of math, a spelling test and writing following a prompt, reading practice and momma reading aloud, and we need to put together our digestive system for our "bodies"!!
It actually sounds perfect for this wet and cloudy Saturday morning;)
I was encouraged yesterday by one of my favorite blogs- Preschoolers and Peace:) Kendra shared a piece of "real" homeschooling in her house!
Have a GREAT weekend:)And don't forget to Spring your clocks Forward tonight!!
