4pm monday-friday

So this is us. Monday through Friday. At 4pm. You ask, why 4pm? Well Anne is in school all day until 2:00. I feel like if she has to do homework she should get some down time first. The kids have their "quiet time" which isn't usually quiet since the kids have taken to being together for this time. Then I get my time to work on primary, scrapbooking, blogging, and most recently sewing. I know, I know. Both mom and Anjuli are shocked at hearing this but I am dabbing my toe a bit as of late. But back to homework. We sit at the kitchen table. Andrew colors or plays, I read through the mail, and Anne does her homework. Just the other day I realized just how far Anne has come this year. She now does full page book reports, is counting by 5's and 10's, tells me just how much money I really have in my purse, and her handwritting is amazing. What can I say - once again I realize just how much she really growing up. Before long she will be doing algebra and I will have to refer her to my better half....but until that day we will work on those floating a's and counting by 5's.

So what are you sewing? That is a great picture!! It is amazing how fast they grow. Colin has started picking up letters and is now drawing pictures that actually look like something, mostly Star Wars things. Gone are the days when he has to explain the picture to me.

I can relate! My kids come home around 3:15, and I always let them have a snack and chill before getting back to work. With three kids with homework, it can take the rest of the night!

Wow, they teach them a lot in kindergarten!

I agree with Megan, that's more than what Kennedi is doing. Her homework is reading every night. Sounds like a good teacher! Lucky Anne!
