This is the Very First Time

This is the very first time that I have done this as a parent.


I am not sure if I should be ashamed of myself.....or proud.

What did I do?


While the( to be named later )child worked on this assignment, I was cleaning the kitchen and discovered something else.  So, this assignment was added.....

I have never assigned sentences like this in my entire "career" as a mom.  It was sort of fun.  I will see today if it was effective.

My kids, are ready for school to start.  They do better with structure.  They do better when they haven't spent the summer watching T.V. shows where the kids all have attitudes and talk mean to each other and disrespectfully to their parents.

We were supposed to start on Monday, but all of our curriculum and everything we needed for school was hastily packed in a box last March/April and shoved into a friend's basement.  All with the thought that we would be moving this summer and any box that had books/school stuff in it would go to one bedroom to be unpacked and loaded on shelves.  Surely, we didn't need to label boxes or anything foolish like that, right?

Yeah, right.  Rainman and I, plus my wonderful friend, Sherri, whose basement storage room we have taken over, have spent hours searching and trying to find what we need to start school.  We have gotten about 80% of what we need.

So, Rainman and D-man are going over tomorrow to just remove every hastily packed box of school stuff and return it to our home and our shelves.  If someone wants to buy our house now, they will have to be able to look past our school stuff and not have things looking like a magazine.  We shall see.  Honestly, I am not too hopeful of that happening. 

I will keep you posted. 

Oh, do you want to know which child had to write sentences?

Anyone out there surprised????
