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!

Blessings,

Lisa

I hope your asthma is better now. Sounds like you're in a great routine at the moment, well done!

Your pond sounds fun and convenient!!

I sure am hoping you are feeling better by now.

It sounds like you've got things clicking along well. Isn't it great that it is cooling off enough to enjoy the park in the afternoon. We did that on Thursday - still have to remember the sunscreen but it's getting doable again.

I feel better today. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until today when I could actually take a deep breath. lol

The schedule is great. We're really accomplishing a lot and I feel confident that this one will work at least for the rest of this year.

The pond is a lot of fun! We've got tadpoles in there right now and can't wait until they become frogs. It's our own little ecosystem.lol

Yep, the park is finally getting cooler. We are so used to Miami, where it's cooler so it's been hard staying indoors for so long. We were very spoiled down there.lol
