Christmas Eve night I got up to go to the bathroom. I walked around our bed, past our bedroom door to get to the bathroom and when I looked up who should be standing there in the hall by her bathroom door but 11 year old Sweetheart.
"What are you doing?" I asked sleepily.
"It's after 8:00. We can get up now!" she said.
OK. Folks, it was actually 1:40AM.
Can you see the dilemma?
I know. She was really excited to get up but it was funny. I made a joke to my family about how we might need to review telling time when school started back in January. (Ya think?) My dad bought a simple looking clock at Wal-Mart for the girls. It's hanging in our homeschool room now.
Sweetheart walked by a few minutes ago and told me what time it was. Then she said, "I think I might need to memorize the minutes so I don't have to count by 5's every time. Just like I'm memorizing my math facts."
***Insert Hallelujah Chorus here.***
And also, our new schedule for school is working out great!!!! OK so it's only been 1 day. I'll tell you about it later today. Gotta teach spelling right now. It's time.
By the way, the clip art for those clocks came from this site and it's awesome!
