Let's start with this . . . GETTING OUT OF THE HOUSE . . .
As a mom this is one of the hardest things. It takes so much effort to get out of the house. That's usually when I lose my patience, lose my cool, and many times lose my keys. My kids ask questions like; When are we going? Where is my other shoe? Can I take 100 toys? Are we all going? I begin thinking things like; Maybe we should just stay home, Why didn't I get up at 5:00 am instead of 7:00am? How can I get things more organized so everyone is self sufficient? I'm pretty good at planning ahead and being organized but regardless of how prepared I am those last five minutes are just frustrating . . . . BUT once we are out the door it's ALWAYS worth it. On Saturday we decided to take our first SPRING hike!!! It was a beautiful day, there was no exception with our "out the door hassles" but the second we were out and my eyes could capture these moments it reminded me how worth it is to trudge through the hassles. Everyone loved the hike!!
Here's pics from last week's preschool activities . . . I think if I had to name our little home preschool (it's just myself, the twins, and sometimes Tatum if she's up) I'd call it NAKED PRESCHOOL. The twins are always in underwear!
The twins have really started asking about when they'll get to go back to preschool. I think they just miss going to school like Ian does and they miss some of their friends. I miss it too but am enjoying being able to use my creativity and do things with them. These years with them are flying by. It's also fun to see how they both do things a little differently when working on a project.
Just a moment ago they were all doing a Slime Science Kit that Ian had earned and they wanted to smell the slime they were making. I taught them all how a scientist smells something - they waft. It was HILARIOUS watching them all waft the beaker to see if it smells. Science is my LEAST favorite topic but I think it may become my boys favorite. AHHH!
I think I've covered enough topics for one blog. Time to get some things done on my list. More slime is being made I better supervise a little better.
