Once I got them through the first hour or so, they picked up momentum. We've gotten quite a bit accomplished.
I had to be a little extra patient with both children this morning until they kicked in. Their tolerance levels were very low from feeling sleepy. I had to especially be mindful of my adhd child. If I push him too hard, then the whole day will be shot out of the water. We worked through his frustrations...patiently (sometimes not so patiently). I allowed him to work 15-30 mins at a time, and take small breaks in between. This gave him motivation to see the progress, and to realize that it didn't take as long as he thought it would! ;)
We got through Bible, Math, Vocabulary, Science...then moving on to Reading after I finish my lunch break. They are both taking a break upstairs with music.
I've been doing laundry all morning in between getting them on lessons. It had piled up BIG time!!! If you miss it a couple of days around here, it will really pile up!
Today I plan to begin some spring cleaning. Starting with the children's rooms! I'm going to sift through items again...ie, children's toys, clothes, whatever they don't use anymore...hoping they will let go of some more items that they haven't even picked up in the last year!
We have got to continue with simplifying! David finishes up his residency in Aug. 09, and this may mean another move for us. That is, unless God opens a door for our family here. As it stands, there are no chaplain jobs available at the hospital where he is doing his residency. Therefore we need to be flexible, and ready to move if God moves us. :) The life of ministry...
I'm so ready for spring/summer! I was getting to the point where I was almost feeling depressed or something. Does anyone get that way? By the time end of winter is upon us, and spring is approaching...I am SO ready for the sunshine! It is like a lifting for me! I guess the creative side of me just longs to see color...green trees, and pretty flowers!
The past couple of days have been absolutely beautiful here! The sun is shining, and right now I show the temperature as being 77 degrees. ☼ ☺
