Because My Kids are Kind of Awesome
We started out President’s study this week. We kicked it off by putting a timeline up on our living room wall and I told the kiddos the first one to memorize all the presidents will get to go to Sky High on the next homeschool day. They also only had two weeks to do it.
“But MOM there’s like a hundred of them….” they all whined.
“I’m not doing it I don’t care about Sky High.” Said one defiant teenager.
” What if we DON”T get them all done?” asked a nervous 8 year old.
“Well if only the first person get’s a prize I’ll just quit memorizing if I’m not the first,” said one way to smart for his own good 10 year old.
grumble grumble…went the kids
public school public school…whispered this mommy,and her head may have just been filled with thoughts of kid free days,lounging around with Adrienne,sipping coffee and writing awesome blog posts.
Then I remembered how much I would miss learning and teaching,the giggling,lazy pajama days….
And I think the kids thought the same thing.
As of Wednesday the two oldest could say them all and the two youngest have made it to Coolidge.
What they don’t know is because they all stopped whining and buckled down to tackle the list they will ALL be going to Sky High as long as they get the list memorized.
Even when they’re whiny brats….they still end up being good kids.
Just don’t ask me how the all house clean up is going to go today….
