We had so much going on last year. I felt like I was out of the house way too much for doctor appointments and errands.
This year Allan’s been doing a lot (the vast majority) of the grocery shopping. Doctor appointments are less often because of the answers we got for Payson during his endoscopy.
So life has slowed down a lot. The kids and I stay home a lot more and everything feels more peaceful.
Today during breakfast I read to the girls from this book called “My Father’s Dragon.” They really loved it and so did I. We read half the book! The book is one I got from Sonlight last year.
Breakfast was oatmeal (certified gluten free for Payson) with blueberries and agave nectar, and some fruit. Yum!!
All three kids were a sticky mess after eating so they got a bath.
After their bath we headed into the front room to do some school work. While I was printing Sierra’s reading lesson off the girls played (and it was cute because they were acting out scenes from “My Father’s Dragon” with their toys.)
We do all of our reading on the futon in the front room.
Payson made a mess in the corner.
Payson got a late nap today and ended up only sleeping for a half hour or so.
During the half hour he slept the girls worked on handwriting while I folded laundry.
In between teaching the girls their lessons I’d text. My friend Arjhana (pronounced uh-ron-uh) texts me a lot during the day. I don’t answer most of them (because I’m with the kids.)
The last pictures I took before I got tired of dragging my camera around was of snacktime.
Toast with jelly and pretzels for the girls, gluten-free cheerios for Payson. Pear and cashews for all of them. Cashews are a huge favorite for my kids.
