Random shots of our day...
Today was a pretty simple day, just really busy. DH got out of work early today so we ran a bunch of errands. We took the boys to the library (so check back soon for my next list), plus many more things. I got the boys working on their lessons this morning and started on my to do list for the day. Sammy worked on his states assignment and started learning about the water cycle. He loved watching the water cycle episode of the "Magic School Bus" (I love the magic school bus, so full of information) Gabe was working on some practical life skills. He started this morning with transfering beads from one bowl to another. After that I could tell he was not going to work well so I let him go play. I went to there room to check on him and I found this....

He thought elmo wanted to read, sometimes he is just to cute for words.
After supper we decided to finish off their school work. Here is Sammy setting payday to have a math lesson with daddy. So I had the fun of doing Gabes lesson with him. We had a .....
Tea party. This was more practical life work for him. He was doing all the work and pouring the tea for us. He is so funny. We had OJ for our tea so we pretended it was citrus tea. He told me that he grew the oranges for it in our bathroom, thankfully he said in the tub. Ok going to finish up my work real quick and then enjoy a movie with my DH. Good night.

I tried this earlier but my computer went wonky. I LOVE how Elmo is reading a book!!! SO CUTE! I think payday is a wonderful math game. I never looked at it that way before! I am going to go see if I can find our payday game today.

It looks like you had a great day. I'm amazed to read that your boys settle into their work while you work on your to do list. I'm looking forward to the day when my little ones can be so independent. Love the Elmo photo. Kids can be so cute. I hope you had a lovely evening with your dh.

Amber- Sam loves playing payday as a math lesson. When I am making his lessons he begs for that as his math lesson.
Nina- I am able to get my oldest to sit down and work a little easier because of his age (7). His brother though is a differnt story. He is younger (4) so I am working on his indepence so he will be able to sit and work on his own. For that I have things on my to do list that I can sit and work on next to him so that I am still there but he has some independence going on. I will gradually work on things a little further away so he can get better at that.
