Today's been a good day. We went to the park for a hour and everyone had fun. I would've stayed longer but it was just too hot. Evidently, the schools were off today, so the park was crowded but everyone seemed to play well and I didn't feel uncomfortable with the crowds. After the park, we went to Larry's Giant Subs again because I was craving it and was far too tired to make my own.LOL It was really good and once again, everyone belonged to the clean plate club. I don't mind spending the money if the food actually gets eaten.
The older kids had some work to finish when we got home and they've already completed it. Eric has been amazed that our schedule has allowed the kids to not only get the work done but on Fridays they usually finish early. He asked me last night if they needed more work.LOL I said no, they are just getting the time they need to finish these complex subjects. What a blessing it is to have this area of our lives working again. The kids worked on part 1 of a pond experiment that they had in their Biology book today and it was pretty interesting. We happen to HAVE a pond in our front yard that I've been taking care of, so we didn't even have to find one.lol I have been growing different water plants in there and I have noticed quite a bit of life in the pond. I'm sure that they'll have the different creatures that they need to finish the project. They are really enjoying Biology and are getting really good grades so far.
I think that Genevieve is going to be a lot like her older brother Jon. She loves science and requests a Magic School Bus book every night before bed. She loves to find out how things work and she absolutely has to see in the microscope everytime the older kids are using it.LOL
I guess that's our day so far. I'm pretty worn out and my asthma is bothering me so I think that I'll be resting shortly to give my lungs a break. I'm glad it's Friday!
