Not this week. I woke up on time on Monday, we got started on time, and the day progressed perfectly for once! I even marked it on my calender because this NEVER happens ... EVER!
There were no real major meltdowns over doing our book work this week which was completely shocking. YCJ of course had to give me a little bit of a hard time but if she didn't she would not be herself and I'd worry that she was ill. She also spent most of her time this week trying to avoid my camera ... and it didn't matter if it was pictures or videos.
We of course spent some of our time "getting the wiggles out". I have a few of these videos but this one seems to be the best one.
We tried to compromise with Peanut who wanted to watch her Strawberry Shortcake and was tired of doing school today... yeah, the worksheet didn't get done. Though she will finish it this weekend along with a few others.
ECJ absolutely loves his new mattress and was caught several times this week reading on it. This is great and since he's reading Little Women as his first Lit. book this year and I always caught him with the book in his hand I really didn't complain that he didn't get all of his lessons done. Although he too will be finishing his book work this weekend, again it's not a new thing that this has happened with him. It's just that this week I decided not to stress out over it since it was his decision not to apply himself today to finish all of his work.
|YCJ's noun sentences ... not sure I like the language but it was entertaining at least.|
So, yeah the kids have a few lessons to get done this weekend but nothing that would be considered major (except for possibly ECJ). And my OCD has poked it's ugly head out at me and jabbed an accusing finger at my lesson planner. However, I resolved myself to not being stressed over it.
We'll spend a good part of our weekend having a Harry Potter movie marathon complete with popcorn and trying to relax. We'll also be giving most of the animals a bath this weekend.
