First Week of School

Our first week of school started this week. We studied the letter A, read How to Make Apple Pie and See the World, apple painting, visited an apple orchard and made homemade apple pie. It was a busy week but a lot of fun. I am excited about this school year.

My Morning

Good morning world…

Actually let me start around 1:00 yesterday afternoon.

I am sitting outside with Anna Kate reading the mail when Jake comes banging on the door..MOM!!!! Hurry Judd went to the bathroom on the floor. I take off running.

Poor Judd had been complaining that his belly hurt so I wasn’t surprised to see that he didn’t quite make it to the potty to “release his lunch.” He was able to get his clothes off but didn’t make it on top of the potty. He was very upset that he made a mess! I walk in the help him and clean up and I hear Jake behind me gagging. I tell him “go to your room, buddy.” I didn’t want him throwing up while I was cleaning Judd’s mess.

Ok, back to this morning….

I am brushing my teeth. Judd came in my room and said, “Anna Kate went potty on the floor.” I said “no she didn’t she has a diaper on.” Jake said OHHHH YESSSS SHE DID!” I am thinking, what are they talking about? I look at her and she has a diaper on and she is clean.??? hummmmmmm

Well, I tell the boys to go brush their teeth and I walk behind them to go check out Anna’s mess. GUESS WHAT? I had forgotten to throw her dirty diaper away so she decided to open it up and dump it on the floor. I just start cleaning it up and all the sudden I hear gag, gag, splat. Yes, Jake threw up on the floor after seeing Anna Kate’s dirtiness on the floor. At this moment, I just start laughing. Jake starts saying,”Why did that make me throw up?”

How has poop defined my life for the last two days?

School is in Session

This year we have decided to homeschool Jake for his pre-k year. He is very excited about learning and we decided that he was ready to begin some systematic instruction with him. We are partnering with a Veritas Classical Schools in the area. Our original plan was for him to go to class one day a week and homeschool the rest of the week. Our plans did not work out so well but we are receiving weekly lesson plans from his teacher so that helps me a lot.

Monday was out first day of school and we had a great time. Judd did a lot of the activities with us and I was very impressed with both of them. Today went well but Jake has been running a fever so we did not get to everything I had planned but that is ok.

I will update with pictures soon.
