I am thankful that school vacation is over and the kids are back at school. I seriously don’t know how people can home school. If you’re a home schooler, then you must have an abundance of patience. I had tons of patience to teach classrooms full of other people’s kids (kids who didn’t speak English), but my own kids? No thank you.
I am thankful that Stella loved going to school. She was nervous, but mostly excited. She had a great time while she was there and apparently met a boy. The high school girls loved her, seriously how can you not love Stella and all her flair?
I am thankful that my kids get along (most of the time). They are each other’s best friend; they always have someone to play with. I think that was why Teddy was so traumatized by Stella going to school while he was home; he has never been home without one of the girls.
I am thankful that Stella has begun to put her clean clothes away without a grand mal tantrum. Considering I have done loads of laundry that consist of 98% of her clothes, you can imagine how much work she has to do when the laundry basket is brought up to her room. Her next step would be to get them in the drawer a bit neater, but right now I’ll take it.
I am thankful that the kids’ rooms are upstairs and I don’t have to see the destruction unless I go up there. They must to have set a speed record for messing up three bedrooms and a hallway. At least the dog can easily find a quick chew toy when she wants; there is an abundance of Barbie shoes and crayons for her to choose from.
