which brings on warm, fuzzy feelings and reminds me of why I homeschool. Unprompted moments of togetherness like this almost make me question their sin nature. Almost.
Inevitabley the next scene I stumble upon will be more like this one...
Mind you, we have an entire cabinet full of preschool activities and puzzles that she could be playing with, but no she climbs up into the pantry to reach the macaroni. In her defense, she did put every one of those little buggars back in the bag, close it up again, and return it to its rightful place in the pantry. I'm not sure how I should feel about that.
At least it was better than discovering my preschoolers doing this the other day.
Not that there's anything wrong with swinging, I would just rather one of them not be naked.
So how do you keep your preschoolers busy while doing school with the big kids? I ordered two more games last night and am hoping they get here REALLY soon. (I'll be sure and get some pictures when they do arrive.) I did manage to squeeze in a reading lesson with Prince today and a FIAR. We're not exactly reading each book five days in a row, though. We're lucky to hit each one three times in a row. At any rate, Prince seems to be greatly enjoying our special time together each day. And Queen manages to steal me away from school about a million times each day by saying those magic words, "I need to go potty, Mommy!" which are often followed by an emphatic, "Let's run!"
It gets a little crazy around here at times, but there's something to be said for never having a dull moment! We thank the Lord for each and every one of our children- even the one that likes to strip off all her clothes at every opportunity and dump out all the macaroni.
