It was not the best of mornings. To be honest it was one of those mornings where you question whether you really ought to be doing what you're doing and isn't there some easier way to get things done.
Well, there may be easier ways to do this but overall I do love our homeschooling lifestyle. There's just some days that are just not so great.
Trying to homeschool three kiddos, and potty train a two year old is just not happening quite like I thought it would. And did you notice that it's winter and it feels like the walls are crowding in around us?! It's not really that bad but today it felt like it. So in hopes of keeping some semblance of my sanity I'm dropping the potty training for now. Summer time when schedules are more lax and the weather is warm seems a far more conducive time for that kind of activity.
Our afternoon was much brighter. We played a rousing game of lumberyard with our cuisinare rods and then spent some time just building with the rods. We followed that up with hot chocolate and Mary Poppins.
In the evening I enjoyed a lovely visit with a wonderful friend. We sipped coffee and worked out plans to help each other to make healthier choices and hold each other accountable to exercise each day. It's so easy to fall off the wagon when you're going it alone and so much more fun to have a friend along for the ride!
