It really has flown by.
Sure we have had some tough days, weeks even.
Our Sunday plans were recently ruined by illness and the depressing too much homework disease.
But overall we have mostly survived the first 4 weeks of school.
Good job kids!
Before school started I had really big plans for how I would be spending my days. My youngest is now in a full day program. That means I am usually home by myself from 9-2:30 every day. I thought wow, I will be getting so much accomplished! Yeah right. Funny one.
Somehow I have been busier than ever the past 4 weeks, accomplishing very little.
The other assumption I made was that my little girl of 4 years old would be so tired from an 8 hour day of school that she would be going to bed much earlier. HAHA she said. Since school started she is going to bed a bit later than usual.
I guess the lesson I learn from this is, never try to figure things out in advance. Always go with the flow. Play things by ear. Enjoy each day as they come and do not try to make too many plans in advance. All that free time I thought I would have is consumed by helping in the kids schools, helping with homework, shopping, doing dishes, taking people where they need to be, and occasionally finding time to post on my blog.
I hope you have enjoyed your first 4 weeks of school!!
I think I forgot to post a video that I made with my oldest son.
We were asked to make a video with back to school tips for teens. HP and Walmart sponsored our video. The outtakes from this video were hilarious. Our bird was flying around, then refused to get off the top of the fan, and different kids were crying, all while trying to shoot the video. Diane wanted to be in the video, then not be in the video. It was really a lot of fun ;). I should make videos with the teens more often, it sure does keep them quiet as soon as the camera starts to roll.
Anyway, if you want to see our video, here it is:
