After our breakfast and morning chores; we sat down to school. We actually finished up our chores in record time today and got a bit of an early start on school.
Children busy at work…
N. was practising writing his name out. He really wants to write letters to send to people, but I keep telling him, he first needs to learn how to write all the letters of the alphabet first. B. likes to be right where all the others are.
R. thinking hard.
Usually baby is sleeping while we do school, but she woke up after a very short nap. She is quite happy here as you can see. This year we are using a lot of A Beka for our oldest, most has been going well, but I don’t care for their spelling book. Here I was writing out some extra exercises for S. to do, so it will help her remember her spelling words. I’m hoping it works and she can get better marks on her tests.
Sweet little boy!
After a while, N. wondered if he could listen to a Bible story. This was given to us recently by some dear friends and our children have throughly enjoyed listening to the stories!
After lunch, since I had some dishes to wash, I decided it would also be a good time to make bread. The boys had fun watching the bosch do the work for us. 🙂 Anything that moves or makes noise the boys find interesting!
While the bread was rising, I tackled my messy desk!
After the desk cleaning, the bread was ready to shape into loaves. When B. saw me with the bread dough, he went and got the rolling pen for me. I let him help and he was happy!
I like to write up short to do list of things I hope to accomplish in my day. Here is what I wrote down for today.
~tidy my desk
~tidy main main level thanks to my dear children, this got done
~fold clean laundry
~change boy’s bedding
~wash baby items
~Enjoy my family today!!
I added the last one, because yesterday I was feeling really irritated with even the smallest things. I did not want another day like that! Today went much better, it is amazing how when the heart is right, everything else is right too.
I’ll end our day here with a few verses I read this morning.
