This week has been a hard week for some reason. I've been tired and grumpy and fighting those two things all week. So I didn't know if I was up for Friday school today. But everything went well!
It started off with Mass. I've been trying to get back in the habit of going to at least one daily Mass a week with the kids. I somehow stopped doing this back after last Lent. My plan this year was to go to the 9:00 Mass at a nearby parish on Friday mornings and then go on to our 10:00 co-op which is just 15 minutes down the same road. But I didn't manage to get my act together to do it the past two Fridays. But this morning we made it to Mass. And it was lovely. Thank you, God!
Then we proceeded on to the Co-op. The kids classes are: American Sign Language, then Cultural Studies (they were in Puerto Rico today), then lunch (I get to visit with them then) and lastly they have Nature Studies which I help teach. The day went very well. The kids like all the classes. My schedule is: first period teaching a darling group of little 3 and 4 year old boys and one little lady in the preschool group. Then I get to help out at the nursery, then lunch and then Nature Studies.
Right after Friday school is tennis lessons with our TORCH group. The afternoon was a beautiful one, full of puffy clouds and a temperature hovering around 70 degrees. The teen class is at 1:00 and the littler kids at 2:00. So I got to sit and chat for a couple of hours with lots of lovely Catholic homeschooling ladies while my kids ran around the tennis court.
Now we are home and everybody is decompressing in front of a screen! Becky and Will are watching cartoons. Josh is on the computer (as am I!) and Sean is playing his beloved Super Smash Brothers. In a couples I'll get up and clean the kitchen (which is a disaster, I am sad to say!).
Hannah and Will got up this a.m. and went to the 6:15 a.m. Teen Mass at our parish and then had breakfast. Hannah spent time doing her Spanish Lab at the community college. Will vegged at home. Hannah had to come pick up Josh early from the co-op to get him to his tennis lesson on time and then we followed a bit later.
Anyway, it was a satisfying day and I am pleased with the way the co-op is working out.
