We begin the day with a yummy breakfast, golden brown waffles hot off the waffle maker. Yummy. Troy is usually the breakfast chef but he decided to go sit on the ice and see if he could catch some fish. Lucky for me, Megan was here to fill in. Seeing as how I was nearly comatose this morning. I don't do breakfast well. So if Troy happens to be gone in the morning the kids usually get cereal. (don't worry, they are actually happy about that)
|Don't be fooled, he's not that excited about school. But there are some fun parts.|
Then, after much wiggly silliness while consuming the above mentioned breakfast, they finally got the dishwasher unloaded. I was
|Working diligently, except at keeping his space clean. Maybe I should let him check out some of my organization blogs?|
With no time for a towel to dry off those dishpan hands, I use the next best thing, my pants. (They have so many uses, besides just covering my white, white, legs.) Of course, we were supposed to be logged on to the computer already and my computer is still off. This may not be a problem for some of you, but I happen to have a slow computer and a slow internet connection. Not as slow as dial-up, but still. Those of you who are accustomed to high speed would have a hissy fit over what I deal with on a daily basis.
The phone rings, fortunately I had already had Tate bring it upstairs for me, and I am still not logged in. Mrs. Kidder is a sweet lady and a good sport and says she'll just pour herself a cup of coffee while she waits for me to log on. So I do, and guess what? There is no link to Seth's online conference. Ha! Here I felt all bad for running late and making the teacher late because I was all slow of brain this morning, and it turns out that she forgot to send me the link. Of course, I was very sweet, and accomodating, so we have rescheduled for this afternoon.
|This is how Wyat feels about school today|
Is it wrong that I felt so much better about my blunder after we realized that her blunder was the greater blunder? Yes, it probably is. I never should have been late in the first place.
Stupid, foggy, monday morning brain. So much for writing things down three times to help me remember it. Now my sister is going to remind me about her 'plan ahead on Sunday night' philosophy again. And she's going to really feel justified in believing I need to do it.
|Sometimes they help each other out and are so sweet to each other|
|Sometimes this is a more accurate perception of how 'helpful' brothers can be|
And so begins our week of home school. Never sure what we're going to encounter on any given day, but we can always be sure it will be an adventure.
|Saying the Pledge of Allegiance|
|Don't they look excited to be working on their school today?|
Here's to Mondays. I hope you have a happy one!
