An Hour From My Day
I think I say it every week but Thank God for Monday!!! And Thank God for Monday Listicles! This weeks list fits perfectly with how I spent my weekend organizing all of our daily schedules! Yes Yes I sat down for a good 8 hours(amidst celebrating the warm weather and Nathaniel’s Bday.)and pieced the puzzles of our 8 lives together to fit perfectly into a 24 hours period….and I enjoyed doing it. I know I’m kinda sick like that.
Anyways…this week’s Listicle is also helping my other friend over at Stacey’s Mothering Moments kick off her new weekly link up, An Hour in A Day which happens every Tuesday.
So let me grab the darts and throw one at my daily schedule and see which hour it lands on Shall I?
AHA it landed on the magical hour of 9:30-10:30…this of course is after Trin is off to school and morning dishes are done and we are about half an hour into our school day.
Nathaniel should already be settled into his science or history work for the day but of course I have to remind him several time to stay on task and concentrate.if it’s History I have to answer the question of ‘Do I REALLY have to do this?” If it’s Science,he’s all good to go…typical boy.
I then go over Kenna and Lane’s lessons. Right now Kenna is learning a bit about ancient India’s culture while Lane is delving into the world of Odin,Thor,Loki and the Norse Myths surrounding them.
Both Holly and Dee are wrapping up their morning Main Lesson which lately has been animal fables so you could find them doing anything from rewriting the story to sculpting one of the animals out of clay to sitting outside and painting the fable.
I am still overseeing lessons of the three oldest while taking something out for dinner.
I am also reminding whoever has laundry day that day that they need to switch over their load.
I try and figure what to take out for dinner so it will be thawed in time(next on organizational list….menu planning.)
The two youngest girls are wrapping up their main lesson and Holly moves on to Math while I sit and work on Dee’s reading with her.
and yeah that’s about it…a one hour peek into my day. Doesn’t seem like much but I guess maybe I’m just used to teaching 4-5 grades at a time.
I know this is kind of a short blog piece for yours truly but B and I are headed to the hospital this morning. His Papa is having surgery. Please if you guys think about it keep him in your prayers.
