We're probably the last of homeschoolers to officially start up, but we did just that today.
Bob woke me at the ungodly time of 6:30. Oh man, was it tough getting up that early. I showered and did my hair real quick then went to wake Thomas. He was awake! That early! He was getting dressed. Most importantly, he was in a fantastic mood. (Did aliens come into my house last night and steal my child, replacing him with a morning bird???)
After much debate over our breakfast dilema, we decided to go to McDonald's. Half the fun is being out and about instead of waiting for a school bus. Thomas had McDonald's hot cakes and I had an Egg McMuffin. Yum.
We started school at 7:45. In the morning. Thomas and I. Pinch me, I must be dreaming. Thomas worked hard today and he was cheerful to boot! He worked fast, too. I'm hoping that continues through the school year! By 9:30 we had done all of our language arts, which is a lot this year as that's the major focus, logic, reading, science, and US history. By 9:30 this morning we were both yawning and about to fall asleep standing up. So we snuggled up and put a SOTW CD in. We both passed out.
An hour later we both woke up and hit it hard again. We finished up math, I read aloud, and watched a show on United Streaming.
Bob came home, we all had lunch together. We watched another United Streaming show and Thomas is reading a book on Concord and Lexington.
Holy cow. This isn't like us!
I hope this early morning rising and hard working theme continues this year!
