I actually needed to make myself a things-to-do list to get me through this morning. I had two packages to mail to out of town Avon customers. There were videos to return that we rented over the weekend, which were Brave and RENT. I had to take Avon books to a new customer. Then, I had to go to the bank to make deposits for both Avon and twirling. Then, I needed a few things from the store. THEN, I needed something to drink, because all of that running around made me thirsty.
As soon as I got home, we got ready for our homeschool Girl Scout meeting. At Girl Scouts, we worked some more on our magazine page bowls, and had a little planning session about the children's magazine that the girls want to start. When we got home from Girl Scouts, I took Melody to work and then we worked on Abbey's conservation course. In the process, we discovered that Abbey only needs to pass 5 more lessons and then she will be finished with this. She said that she wants to take the veterinary assistant course next. We read out loud from Mere Christianity, which opened up a great discussion about the birds and the bees. After that, Abbey worked on some of her other lessons independently. Then, it was time for Abbey to go to archery. While Abbey was at archery, Tarja watched Peter and the Wolf on youtube, and I heated up smoked sausage for supper.
While I fixed supper, Ivana had to be confined to her high chair, because she has figured out how to climb up on, out of, into, and on top of just about everything. None of her baby furniture keeps her safe except for the high chair, and I caught her as she nearly tipped THAT over. I know that it's not nice to compare, but my other children all could talk quite clearly by the time that they were as old as Ivana. None were as physically active as she has been. The only word that Ivana says is, "Num!" when she is eating something that she likes. The rest of her day is spent getting into, onto, out of, on top of, and under, everything that she can find. Needless to say, we have had some crazy days around here.
Have a Great Day!
