I may switch out laundry or run the swifter during school time..but I try to keep my mind on school. At 1:00 our family has quiet time. Priscilla still naps everyday and Lucy sleeps 2/3 days a week. But even if you are not a napper, you are in your room for 1-2 hours for quiet reading/play time. I try to NOT do school during this time, but most days I have to do some sort of schooling and it can sometimes take all of the quiet time. I really try to plan the morning to have that time free for whatever I need to do. And lately I have used that time for some knitting and reading..for me!!
p.s the colors here are amazing right now and I have taken more pictures of leaves than I ever thought possible...fall rocks!!
and another p.s...notice I did not say much about cooking. Right now simple is my main course. I do not spend a lot of time or money on food right now. We eat chili, taco's, chicken breast with rice, pasta and chicken with broccoli, steak with baked potatoes, chicken soup, sausage with pasta, red beans and rice...stuff like that. I have like 10 things I make OVER and OVER again with little variations that I know people like. One day I hope to have more to add to that list but right now eating is a job to be checked off the list so I can move on to other jobs. I know one day it will not be like that...but this season simple is our dinner of choice!!
