Just Another Wednesday

I woke up this morning and saw only 2 of my 3 kids still asleep on the family room floor (it was HOT last night, so we camped out). I figured Justin was in the bathroom or something, but he wasn't... Hmmm. I nearly passed out when I walked into the office area and saw him huddled over his schoolwork for the day! Before 8 am. Without being asked. Just.... working.

I think he's hoping that he'll get more video game time. Hate to break it to him, but the television STILL won't go on until EVERYone's work is done.

Maybe I'll let him in on that little fact AFTER he's finished....

It's a drippy, rainy morning. I am so glad we went to my parents' house last night. The kids had an absolute BLAST in their pool! Going to their house on a school night is definitely a HUGE perk in homeschooling. Another perk is this:Every single child got to hang out with their Daddy. On a SCHOOL day. Even though he goes to bed at 2 and wakes at 9. Even though he's never home (and awake) during the week for more than 30-45 minutes. This picture is the best reason for doing what we're doing. I think I need to blow it up and frame it as my Mission Statement, to be used on days where kids AREN'T getting up to do their work early...

Awesome. Hanging out with Dad is cool, anytime. But during the school week? just awesome.

I'm glad it's working for you! Shea wasn't as enthusiastic to get started on his school work today.

And I had a tough time concentrating after you said "pool". It's just the usual Gettysburg back to school weather around here- a humid 90.

I love your attitude and your determination to do what you think is best for your family. You are one fierce mama bear in the best possible way.

so glad the kids get to see their dad on the rare occasion because of homeschooling.
