We started school this week. I've been scurrying around trying to make sure I have sufficient curriculum and hoping there's a sale for the things I still need.
I've been reading Large Family Logisitics by Kim Brenneman after reading my friend Connie's excellent reviews on it, in hopes of learning better organization. I have realized that I have a large family now and I need someone to show me the ropes.
My friend and neighbor's husband is gone again and she needs a break. I couldn't say no. I TOTALLY understand the need to escape from toddlers. I didn't have the heart to tell her I wasn't accepting any extra committments this month.
The printer/copier and I have been bestest buds printing out worksheets and lesson plans.
I have a battery-operated pencil sharpener now. No more blisters from sharpening dozens of pencils each week.
I bought a 7 ft. by 3 ft. table at a yard sale for $8. Eight bucks! Yeah!! It's now the school table in our classroom.
Danny re-broke my toe on Sunday. Well, it wasn't intentional. His busy feet clad in church shoes and my busy bare feet met in the kitchen with an unfortunate crack. I think he may have laughed as I drooled chocolate macadamia nuts out of my mouth while telling him "uh caaahhhnnnt waahhhhhhk."
The kids start swimming lessons again today after a two week break. I'm going to strap Peach on my back and the twins into their double stroller and read a book or two to Hammy while the oldest three attempt to not be sinking rocks.
I endeavor to start dating my husband again.
