Journal 1/12/09

  • Got up early but somehow managed to fritter away the time doing nothing. Only got a decade said. Took a shower.
  • Will got up to do lots of math homework he didn't do last night when he should have.
  • Josh only had a little bit to finish up.
  • Josh and Will worked with math tutor this a.m.
  • Both Becky and Hannah did not get up until after 10:00. Hannah needs to clean her room, read Little Women and go to work. She's got a long shift today.
  • Had a fun morning with Seano. He copied over a little RLS poem. We reviewed his Latin sayings and 1st and 2nd declensions and 1st conjugation. We also listened to the Latin for Children vocab cd for review. We got silly attacking each other for oppugno and such. It was fun to giggle over Latin. He finished the chapter of Henry Huggins in the reader. He also practiced piano a bit this a.m. Then he wanted to draw. He's decided to be a cartoonist after the Pearls before Swine guy. Spent quite a bit of time working on his cartoon drawings. I worked on drawing faces. Can't do chins.
  • Becky got up and started right in playing with Molly. It is 11:54 a.m. and I've yet to do a lick of work with her.
  • Tidied up basement and two loads of laundry
  • Did a bit of Greek after lunch. Becky did some copy work.
  • Did a bit of math with Sean but he was not focusing so gave up.
  • Read 1/2 of George Washington by D'Auliare's to Becky and Sean
  • Josh did his Kolbe Vocab and grammar; he's thick into his book Marlfox. I love the way he just hides away and reads. That's exactly how I was!
  • Took Sean to piano lessons
  • Interesting conversations: Will told me I should punish him more. He's convinced that only punishment will motivate him but apparently I'm falling down on the job. I just get mad or disappointed but don't actually punish. I tell ya, you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't! Sean: He's decided he wants to have a beautiful wife and lots of kids when he grows up. He's looking forward to growing up, he says, because kids are immature and tend to be jerks. He reasons that grown ups are more mature and therefore behave better. I didn't bother to burst his little bubble!
  • Did some Latin homework with Will and Josh.
  • Rick called, he was coming home early and he's been craving this grilled salmon at a restaurant at the local mall. So instead of making dinner (which is just as well, I forgot to get the meat out to defrost again!) we went out to eat!
  • Took Sean and Will to music theory while Rick took Becky and Josh to B&N to find the next Nicholas book. Hannah's at work.
  • Came home and finished up Latin exercises. Still need to do reading in the a.m. before the class.
  • I'm doing a 30 day flylady challenge at the yahoolist for unschooling catholics. I didn't really do anything today though except that my kitchen is wiped down and my sink is clean.
  • It is 10:16 and I am ready to hit the sack. Wish I had a Georgette Heyer to read but instead I'll read my Paul Johnson Am. history book. He really makes it read like a novel.

Kitchen wiped down and sink clean? That's enough!

And I can't do chins, either.
