I am finding our week slightly boring this year! LOL! I guess we have finally found a rhythm! (I wrote this around 2 or 3 when I was catching up on emails. I think that I spoke too soon. The afternoon was a bit nuts.)
6:30 I woke and headed to walk with my friend.
8:20 I came home to find the kids doing their chores and school work. Sawyer did her spelling. Sims did his math. They all had eaten breakfast and finished their chores. While I cooked and ate breakfast, I sat ad listened to them as they played legos. They have very intricate stories with their lego characters and buildings.
9:05 Everyone cleaned up their area. Today was vacuuming day.
9:25-9:45 Logic of English together
9:45 Sims read aloud while Sawyer and Parks did math.
10:15 Parks decided to cook macaroni and cheese (no idea where this idea came from but suddenly, everyone was hungry). Sims helped Parks as needed while I jumped in the shower. Sawyer was still working on math.
11:30 All three kids rode horses today. It was a good day at the barn. Parks and “his” horse had a terrific connection. Sawyer cantered all around with only a kiss, kiss sound which thrilled her (the horse that she rides can be a bit ornery requiring a lot more than a sound to move-let alone, canter). Sims finally trotted again and ventured into some of the obstacles. He is starting to get back to his normal self with the horses since his fall.
1:30 We arrived back home, and everyone ate some lunch.
2:00 Everyone had some “quiet” time. I journaled and went through some emails. The kids played in their rooms. Sawyer invented doll furniture with boxes.
By 3:00 everyone was out of their rooms and Parks was doing everything that he could to get some attention (aka-drive everyone around him nuts!). So we convinced him to go outside. Sims laid down on the couch (he is fighting a cold). Sawyer played with her dolls.
4:00 We all sat and counted coins from the coin jar. Mindless activity. They were going stir crazy.
5:00 We all sat and watched The Ellen Show-well, sat is far from the truth. Parks was still crazy hyped up. He and Sawyer went out and jumped on the trampoline during commercials. Of course-during the last commercial break, they collided. Sawyer chipped her teeth and now we have a dentist appointment in the morning. Yeah!
6:30 Everyone ate dinner. It was a fend for yourself dinner night due to the drama of the tooth.
I am finishing this post up early. I am not sure what the night will hold, but I am hoping we can calm Parks down and get him to bed early. 🙂
