Tree Runnin'

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Today has been such a busy day. We are just starting to get into the swing of things and it is very exciting! Since it's my first time homeschooling, it has taken me a while to get organized because I just didn't know what to expect without actually doing it, which has made it really hard to get in to. I have to say, after just a few days I am TOTALLY OVER THE TOP PUMPED about this! I honestly don't remember the last time I was so excited about anything! I spent half of my weekend just planning in my mind how I was going to set up our school room. Yep, I am going all out and making the "sitting room" half of our dining room our school room! I actually went to the teacher's store on Saturday and was totally bummed that they were closed for the holiday! It's sad, I know. But now that I've got a plan, I'm just working out the kinks in our routine.

J "decided" to sleep in this morning despite her little brother's consistent attempts to get her up, and then she freaked when she almost completely missed our morning devotion time because I didn't give her enough time to eat and sleep and blah blah blah etc etc etc. Yes, it was right after this that I posted on Facebook how I needed to start a coffee IV. It was truly amazing to see just how fast she could actually clean up her place at the table, make her bed, and do her 3 things (use the bathroom, wash hands, brush teeth...they are not allowed to socialize with the rest of us until these 3 things are done, because they suck their fingers and it literally stinks). Seriously, after all that frantic dashing around I don't think she'll be sleeping in anymore. I won't bore you with the details of what the rest of this day was like, but I do have one more little thing.

Hubby, aka Dad (or "Mama" as L, our 1yo, is currently calling him) is in charge of athletics, so when he got home, he took them outside. The first thing he told them to do was to go run around the trees a few times. Ok, so I know we're not a family of geniuses or anything, but J, our 7yo, takes off running all around the yard, lapping around the trees. Then E, our 5yo, runs to the first tree and begins to do laps.

Around that one tree.


I mean, I know J is fast and all, but I don't think she becomes INVISIBLE to the human eye when she takes off running. Surely he saw that she was running ALL AROUND THE YARD? But no, he runs around each tree individually. Around and around and around he ran. I have trouble interpreting vague instructions myself. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
