As much as like having them over I really enjoyed just schooling my kids. We did school in the living room---not our school room!!! We stayed in our jammies. We did school on the couch. We didn't start until 10 some mornings--11 on others. And Thursday we didn't do school at all! I had a bunch of errands I had to get done and by the time I got home at 3:30 I was POOPED! Today was so much fun. Typically my girls are in a completely different room than we are and I have to run back and forth between everyone. But today, we were all in the living room and dining room and I could see everyone without needing to go upstairs and through 2 other rooms to get to them.
We sat on the couches and lounged around a bit, but we got our work done. I loved our day. I loved getting to sit around and not be confined to our schoolroom. Next week we will go back to the day to day routine. I pray that we are able to easily go back to the routine and that I am able to enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed my past week (minus the sickies).
