Regretfully, It's Day Two

So yesterday was our first day of "real" work. After our first day of school, the next day was our first Fun Friday. I'll be posting about that later. Yesterday there were tears, a proclamation of "feeling dumb", hugs and kisses, and lots of work done. Sweetheart forgot a lot of math since the spring, even with practice each day in June. So....we will begin back where she is and forge on. Hopefully today will be a better day.

Little Bit is loving Kindergarten, except it's not enough in her opinion. She clouds up each day when she is done. Talk about polar opposites!

So yes, Sweetheart said this morning, "I wish it wasn't a school day today." Obviously, we're off to a great start.

It'll be fine. We just need a few weeks to work the kinks out of our schedule.

This weekend is Sweetheart's birthday so I shampooed the carpets yesterday. Today I will rearrange and clean up the play room in expectation of 11 children playing in there on Saturday. She hasn't had a "friend party" in several years so she's looking forward to it.

Also, S and I are being very crafty and working to open a booth at a local craft mall for some extra cash. Well, actually it's not so much "extra" as it is "more." S has all his stuff almost ready to go and I haven't done one thing.

With all that said, I think I need to get off the computer now!


  1. Praying for your second day of school to go fabulously today! I am sure Sweetheart will come around-- has she SEEN all the fun plans you have? :)

    Looking forward to hearing of all of God's blessings He provides today in your home!

    P.S. Love the profile pic! :)

  2. Hey B ~
    I know Sweetheart will start to enjoy the school days again. Shampooing the carpets, wow, hope the kids don't mess up your new shampoo job. Maybe you should have waited till after the party to shampoo the carpets. 11 kids can make a mess sometimes!

    Mine are totally looking forward to the party. Big girl made a countdown to it on her calendar! : ) Hope you all do well with the craft booth, are you using the same place Sarah uses? That's such a great place! : )


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
