Liking getting up early?
Forty is weird.
I know some of you are natural early-risers and have blogged about how wondrous it is, but I never bought it. I used to think the world would be just about perfect if I could get up at 8:00 every morning. When I was in high school, we slept until 10am at least every morning of the summer. Ug. I would hate to sleep that late now! S and I have been getting up around 6 or 6:15 and I can't believe how much I get done and get this: I'm actually tired at a decent hour and ready for bed!
Now, moving on to other less nerdy 40 year old topics.
Here is the completed dollhouse.
Here is the inside of our old TV cabinet/my new homeschool cabinet.
Today, friends are coming over to play and later in the week we are going to a splash park with our homeschool group. So see? That good night of sleep totally got me in summer fun mode.
And of course, we'll be going to the library. Each girl has read over 50 books so far. Most of which were from the 1,000 Good Books list. And so many of them really have been good books!
|This was a book with very few words, but excellent illustrations. They pored over it for so long!|
They are so much better than all the bright, colorful paperback books that the kids are drawn to because they are from some Disney show or movie. These books usually have boring covers. But inside--that's what counts. I think Little Bit truly has learned what the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover" means this summer.
I'm off to be productive with my early rising self. (Gotta pick up some before the friends get here!)
Have a great Monday!
