I thought today was going to be tough work on my part...

We had a big project to do in science, and I thought it would be a tough day (lots of hands on from me)... but they participated in everything so well... even chores and such.

We did English, serious review for competition coming up on Saturday, science, and found time to go clean up the yard a little.    Now they are watching a documentary and we will take the day off of math to practice for choir and the Christmas play and hit back on our practice for competition (bible knowledge)..   I think I'm going to ask them to do one other thing... I just haven't decided what.   They need to write something...

Any suggestions?

 Have them write their Christmas list! Or have them write about what they dreamed about last!

Maybe they could write a comedy?

I say you had an awesome day!!!  Especially compared to the difficult time they have been giving you lately.

That's great!!  Have them write about the transition to fall, fall activities, Halloween, apple picking, daylight savings, Thanksgiving, etc?

They ended up doing a little math, and then split up... one went out to play with friends and had a little WII time, the other two busted out my craft box and I have ghost and pumkin garland decorating my dining room as well as glittery glue sea shells drying on my table.   

Then we had a late dinner of cauliflower, watermelon, yogurt, and grilled chops while watching Madagascar 3.   It was a good day....

Yes, the past few days have been better.   I've had to get tough a few times, but overall pretty good.   Abby is still my obstinent beautiful little distractable 5 yr old... but she is learning.. so it's all worth the effort.

I like this idea.   We've never tried to write our own play yet.   I'm going to jot this down for those dead-of-winter, can't-play-outside-much blues.
