I am a little groggy and very thankful for coffee this morning. Our town does a fabulous job at snow removal but this morning I was not feeling the snow removal love. They had the front end loader out there at 7 a.m.! Now that we are all awake, he left.
I could not fall asleep last night either. I stayed up to watch Apolo Ohno and the short track relay, I was glad that I did. But the Olympics are killing me, it is on sooo late!
As I was walking up the stairs I heard Kevin snoring. I didn't think much of it until I got in bed and it kept me awake. I tried all of the usual tricks, coughing loudly, shaking the bed, kicking him. They weren't working. So I started to get creative and think about what would make him stop that incessant noise. I could jam miniature marshmallows up his nostrils, cover his mouth with packing tape, scream "Fire" or I could simply wake him up. None of those things happened because all of that brainstorming wiped me out and the next thing I knew I was asleep.
Yesterday was a great school day. The boys are doing so well and we are having fun and learning. Who knew! Putting them in school for a short time has proved to be a great thing, I never would have discovered Saxon math otherwise. Saxon has revolutionized math and the troubles it had previously caused for us are virtually non existent. Math is now, dare I say it, a fun subject for us. Again, who knew!
We got some science in as well. We are studying astronomy using Apologia's books and I can't say enough about this program. It makes everything so easy and the organization is already done for me. Again, it's fun and the boys are learning.
Packing is still a part of our day, as is keeping Joe out of the boxes. Life here is interesting to say the least.
Look to the finish!
