School has started with a bang this year... for me and the kids. We played hard all summer...putting school as far away from our minds as possible. All of a sudden I realized I MUST order school books or school would not even be happening for my little second grader at all. I was relieved to see the books arrive quickly and safely in the mail...Kenzie, not so much. :)
This week so far has gone wonderfully well. Altho if you ask the rest of my house, I am pretty much MIA from 9-noon. You will find me upstairs with the girls saying abc's and teaching math. I am surprisingly enjoying it.
I of course, am kidding when I say this, but Sometimes I wonder if a kid even needs schooling with google around. I did not even realize this until tonight, but Kenzie has learned a crazy amount about animals just by googling facts with her kindle. Did you know that 7 out of like 10 deadliest snakes live in Australia? I don't know, just google it. (please don't google it, because I'm not even sure that I got the facts straight on what SHE said, but i'm too tired and lazy to look.) hahaha.
I learned a new trick that I hadn't tried before. Give the kids a job when they are fighting. Obviously it was a 'new' punishment because it worked awesome. My kids got along SO SO WELL this evening when they figured out that every time I caught them arguing they got handed a job. :)
Well I am kinda just rambling here. Jeff is cozied up next to me, sleeping away. And I am just putting off going to sleep. (If I go to sleep the morning comes to quickly, of course!)
So many things a lady/wife/mother could be doing to keep peace, love and happiness in the home. May God help us.... everyone. Blessings to you this week!
p.s. here are a few pics from last weekend.
