Back in the Saddle Again

It's been a little tough to get moving this morning. It's not so much that it's Monday, it's more the fact that Danny and I have had 9 days off. Nine days of not taking Alex to seminary, nine days of no math, nine days of no social studies, language arts, p.e., science....and only a little bit of piano. I was going to have him do more during spring break - but I was pretty wrapped up in Nathan getting home. We all were to some extent.

So far this morning we've spent an hour on algebra, an hour on syllogisms and other language arts stuff, 30 minutes reading, 30 minutes piano practice, 30 minutes working out of the social studies book. Now Danny is building "The Great Wall of China" - I'll give him another 1/2 hour or so. Science and P. E. are all that we have left, plus our regular Monday advisor meeting at the school district office. I'm looking forward to getting the WASL testing schedule - since all the testing is done at the district office I will have hours of free time that counts towards our weekly school attendance.

It almost makes me wish he was back in school. Almost.

The time off is nice, but it's soooo hard to get started again. I love the implied laziness of Summer, but it's also good to have routines.

Syllogisms, I love syllogisms. I went and bought some paint at restoration Hardware. I'll start priming tonight--puke or no puke.

You go, girl.

I told Nathan that we were probably going to be going to your house around May 1st. I think he might come.
