Check Cubed

What a nice day. Really! A really nice, easy-going, much-accomplished day.

Everyone's lists completed from start to finish?
No crying or complaining about the validity of the work assigned?
3 children actually learned something NEW and held the material from the day before?
Quality of work of all 3 was outstanding?

Check! Check! Check! CHECK!

Between the above and the fact that my kids fell asleep watching Finding Nemo to the sound of the rain on the rooftop, tonight ended on quite a lovely note.

I'm all geared up for tomorrow, when Justin learns that Daddy will be doing the P.E. training class (Navy style) again. I do believe he thought it would be a one-time deal. Heh. I need to remember this happy place of peace when he's fighting the work-out again. (Yesterday was a day I just cannot retell. It's too painful to recount my son bucking the physical work we were asking him to do!)

Crossing my fingers for another Good Day on Friday...

A slow morning...

How many times do I say "Evan" ? How many times do I say "Keep working!" or "Focus!" ??

First person to answer correctly gets the privilege of coming over and being a teacher for a day! You lucky, lucky person!

Note to self:

Be prepared for your monthly week of communing with the universe and all its wondrous glory. Because having your period and NOT having the school week planned out isn't the best combination. Maybe "winging it" isn't a good choice when your hormones are on a trampoline and the mortgage is due.

Just a thought.
