First day back

So today we are officially back on schedule. The past few months have been unstructured. So as we walk through these next few days we will tweak and fine tune our time to fit the day. I did not get as much accomplished before lunch that I wanted to, but one day at a time. We finished everything except math and that can be caught up on this afternoon.

As for this morning, I laid Eve down for her nap at 10:00 and we all sat down for morning devotions. We read Proverbs 6 and talked about the 7 things that The Lord despises. Then we read about being a peacemaker in
Little visits with God . Then all the children did their reading and spelling and writing for the day. We had lunch at 11:45. Then I got off track. LOL I have been needing to run an errand and haven't wanted to get started on another subject until we returned. Thing is Eve is still asleep and its 1:30. I guess it takes a lot of sleep to be that beautiful! One thing I have noticed is she sleeps a lot more than the boys ever have. My boys tend to need very little sleep.

Tomorrow we will get started a bit earlier and have certain things "Lord willing" done by lunch.
We did read two really great books today that my boys love. I would recommend them as fun high energy reads, with humor that boys really seem to like. They are by Tedd Arnold. The books are
Parts and More Parts . Great read for boys, (girls too) and silly mom's!

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
