Since our co-op started last week, our school year is well underway around here. The Big Kids had homework in addition to the daily schedule and chores I have for them. My big First Grader is reluctantly learning to write, spell, & add. She's seriously contemplating this idea of sitting down, being still, and paying attention. The biggest question in her mind is, "Why in the world are we doing this and what does it have to do with having f-u-n?" ~ sigh~ Anyway, I float around between the three while doing all sorts of other things Mothers do.

But thank the good LORD for Saturdays! None of us really stirred until 9:00a.m. Sarah said she'd been reading for two hours. I believe it; that girl's always got her head in a book. Laura woke in the wee hours of the morning and managed to wiggle her way beside me. She was dead to the world in that position. Phillip is working today and left way too early for mankind on a Saturday. Poor guy.
We're going grocery shopping later. How's that for interesting?
Hope your day is great!

Hi, Angela!

Love your new blog! The pics from your garden are great!

I hope you all have a great week!

Your sweet Laura sounds just like my Titus. He does the same thing, crawling in our bed in the wee hours of the morning. Somehow I just don't mind. I want to cherish it because I know when he's 16 he will have no desire to snuggle anymore!

I do love Saturdays too. It's wonderful to get up and not have to go anywhere. Hubby does for a church meeting and occasionally work... Poor guys huh. They need a break I think.

Hugs to you!

I just told Mark last night that I can't wait for Friday AND Saturday when I can actually sleep in!!

I have been getting up every single day at 5:45 for the last 2 weeks because of Co-Op and because I am keeping a little boy. It's catching up with me!!

It might not be exciting, but I bet there were lots of little interesting, sweet things going on all day.
I had one that didn't quite understand why she had to learn things. At 11, she's finally admitting to needing some of it! It will come.
