January 6 has been a VERY full day for me . . . can I just say, "I am WIPED out!"
The morning began early . . .
get out of bed
remind kids to get dressed
check on kids
head downstairs to the kitchen for coffee
wait for Katelyn to come upstairs to the kitchen
head back upstairs to "paint the barn" & blow dry hair
grab shoes, purse & Beckett
head off to the bank and then work
put the morning it at the office
Ryan was with Daddy - his school books had not arrived yet
at the office I balanced the checkbook
had a meeting
took care of a few phone calls and appointments
left the office with Katelyn, Ryan and Beckett
stopped at the hair salon for hair product
let Mia and Emma out to go potty
loaded back into the car with Katelyn, Ryan, Mia and Beckett
off to visit good friends ~ a surprise visit!
had a lovely visit with friends
time for school to let out soon
back into town to pick the boys up from school
once home, the telephone and door bell rang simutaneously
we took care of both
the boys unloaded school books
Ryan was THRILLED
After separating the books out, Ryan was excited to begin . . .
so we began . . .
we found where he had left off at school and went from there
We are only one day behind the other kids . . .
we will make that up tomorrow.
Ryan did very well . . .
the other boys returned time and again to "see" what we were doing
they wanted a piece of the "action"
they were made to leave the room
we had much to accomplish
and we did!
Here are some photos:
The boy is THINKING he is LOVING Home School! Look at that face!
Ryan did a fabulous job on his school work tonight.
I was very proud of him . . .
he is really good at Math . . .
he is a good reader and read to his mama tonight
we will work on a bit of reading smoothness and writing clearly
he is going to have a strong second semester
we are both excited
For now . . .
this mama is ready to relax
and go to bed.
