1/18/14 kids in the car, and art supplies, Day 18/365…

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted lately. I’m back.

When the kids were little we were in the car a lot. We went on a lot of adventures on the weekends and a few trips to see relatives in the summers. The kids needed to all sit in the back seat because they weren’t tall enough or weighed enough for it to be safe for them to sit up front. All three kids always wanted the window seat, no one wanted to sit in the middle and have the bump by their feet. We started by having them sit in order, William by the passenger window, Maggie in the middle and Beth on the drivers side. Our first trip was short so they rode there in this order. On the way home William moved to the middle, Maggie went to the driver’s side and Beth went from the drivers window to the passenger window. On longer trips I tried to divide the trip into thirds each got the same amount of time in the middle. The biggest problem that we had was remembering where we left off. This did cut down on a lot of fights and bad feelings in the car.

Today we are going to get Maggie’s art supplies for her art class. We printed off some of her syllabuses last night because she has new classes. Beth will probably spend the day doing math. It snowed at least two inches late last week. There was enough snow that everything is white again, but not enough that we needed to shovel to get into the driveway. We do need to shovel the sidewalk. We need to do all of out weekend jobs today.

Thursday 10/10/13 crunch challenge, school pictures, Day 283/ 365…

We have been talking about working on our 90 day crunch challenge. It is a sit up challenge. We start with five sit ups the first night and every day for ninety days we add five more sit-ups. So the second day we did ten and the third day we did fifteen. We were supposed to continue but instead after the first three days we took a three month break. Also the first three days were not consecutive. We do have the chart. I made a chart so that we can cross the days off as we go along. This saves us from having to remember how many sit ups to do each day. We have decided that at this rate we may be ninety years old and be doing two hundred sit-ups a night to finish the challenge.
Maggie had her school pictures last Friday, Beth has her pictures this Friday. When we get the picture forms I always know that we have made it. The kids are in school, we have school supplies, school clothes and back packs.  We can relax now.
