Yesterday I made a schedule for the summer. Everyday we would work on for Jill reading fluency, handwriting, and multiplication/division. Emmi will be working on key phrases, letter recognition, and sight words. I set up times for each day, as well as lesson plans. I am super organized. Or I would be, if I stuck to the schedule. Instead......
Woke up with Kenny at 6:30. Had coffee while checking my email. Quietly. No grumpy child complaining about being awake or asking for more cereal. By 6:45, my workday began.
Fed my kids popcorn for breakfast. Went well with the movie I let them watch at 8am.
Didn't iron the clothes they put on today. Sundresses require little ironing. Tied no shoelaces. Both kids wore flip-flops.
By 11am, both errands for the day checked off my to-do list. Balloons, ribbons, and ice cream for party tomorrow purchased. Let kids have ice cream before lunch. Kids super happy as they normally don't ever get ice cream.
Heated up pizza rolls for lunch. Let kids eat in front of TV.
Going swimming in ten minutes. Swimming + hot sun = very worn out kids. I am thinking another movie time might happen this afternoon.
I love summer.
