Matt, however, put all things aside (and the kids were good) and gave me a break. I geeked out on a new website I am designing for a friend. Ahhhh! For some women, it's a nice shopping trip, or a luxurious bubble bath. For me, it's pair of knitting needles or a great computer program. The world needs nerds, too!
The 4-hour refreshment has carried me through into today. Plus, Matt was home much of the day to help me balance homeschool:
Reading: I had the girls spend time reading to each other.
Writing: They each completed a couple of pages in their spelling books, and spent some time on a writing project. Xander also practiced her typing lessons.
Math: They worked in a section their daily practice books and a page in their skills books.
Social Studies: They did the work they were supposed to do yesterday (but didn't quite get to) with their dad.
Art: Eden had art lessons.
Music: Xander played piano.
