Thankfully, with Emma starting high school this week, I was able to jump on the opportunity it gives to get back into a routine! Yes, only 1 out of 3 kids is back to school, but what the hay....they can all go back on school routine, right? Works for me. Beds at 9, and they are up at 6:30. We get Emma off to school at 7:30, and are on the mountain at 8. The first few days, Myles was not that enthusiastic...but he quickly got on board and is really enjoying starting our day off with an hour hike out of Mitchel Canyon. Then it's home for Myles to do an hour of school work on the computer using the program he uses at school. Sophie and I sit at the table with him and play cards while he works. He sometimes needs help, so that way I'm right there with him, but able to spend time with Sophie, too. Then he has to write me a paragraph, rough and final copy. After that, they do xbox for their 1 hr a day that they get on it, and then it's darn close to lunch time. After that, well it's chaos......but I'm happy to have at least half a day of routine!
Here's some pictures for you, starting with my day school clothes shopping with Emma. This was the first year she and I went alone, and made a day of it. We started at Pete's for breakfast, and then shopped till 6 that night. It was a blast : )
|This was at the end of the day, we were showing Brian everything we got. He looks happy, no? Yes, she's taller than me now.|
