Well this last week was the first week of SUMMER..and thus the summer program I have planned. I started out with ED Hirsch's "what your....needs to know" and planning a curriculum around that.
Monday: 8 - 10am school. playtime after (I do some computer tasks), lunch, NAP time(thank goodness for naptime), Daddy comes home & we walk over to a close beach, come home, eat dinner, & end the day with FHE. What a day! It was crazy but filled to the max.
Tuesday: 8 -9 am school. Drive to town, drop Klai off at Gunstock Ranch to play with a friend. Walmart & Costco Run...drive home...kids sleep on way home - meaning no nap at home (bummer for me..no sanity hour). Pick up Klai on way home(this time no eggs were brought home), outside playtime, kids asking "Can I go to a friends house" EVERY 5 minutes!
Wednesday: 7:30 - 7:45 school. Veggie pickup & sort day, finish by 9am. 9 - 9:50am ride bikes in the street with Tanner Tueller. 10am Story time at Kahuku Library, pick up some books. Home, snack, Went to the Beach with Tanner as my helper (thank goodness..I don't think I could have survived without a helper). Lunch, Nap, Kids asking again "can I have a friend today?!" Run over to Gunstock Ranch for Girls Camp, help out. Come home make dinner, Go back to girls camp to help perform skit. FUN FUN FUn....exhausted.
Thursday: 8 - 9am school. 9am - go to the Ranch to help out with Girls Camp. eat lunch there, go down the zip line there. Come home at 3:30pm...kids FINALLY can take a nap. make dinner, go back up to camp...sleep there(not really sleep, chat till 3:30 am....leave to go home to feed baby at 5:30am)
Friday: feed baby, sleep, put movie on for kids, sleep some more, give kids food, sleep some more....sleep...grumpiness...sleep..make pizza for dinner, go back up to the ranch to help out again for girls camp..FUN FUN FUN & games! (everybody loves "big booty")
Saturday: come home early again at 6am to feed baby. Daddy goes fishing in the morning, brings home an EEL...YUCKY!! Kids watch saturday morning cartoons..a tradition. eat breakfast. Walk to neighbors house for yard sale...got bags of rice, flour, sugar & brickettes...for CHEAP (finally getting some food storage). play, eat snacks, sleep somemore, kids play in sprinklers, nap time...sleep again for me, eat leftovers for dinner, watch "Prince of Egypt" (learning about that in school), eat popcorn & SLEEP!!
