Keeping the kiddos from killing each other during Spring Break was a difficult task. Keeping the kiddos busy during Spring Break was even more of a challenge. I found oddball jobs that I didn't want to do and had the kids do them. Organization is one job kids love to do so they did alot of cleaning drawers and such. When Monday rolled around this week, I was more than happy to wake up once again at 6 am and usher them out the door to their school buses at 7. One week was enough for me.....and I'm good to go again until Summer. That's a whole 12 weeks I have to keep them entertained and that's always fun!
As the kids get older I realize how much they really do need school and how I would never be cut out to homeschool. Sure we've always done workbooks, projects and other school type things before preschool and during the summer here but to sit them down for 2-4 hours a day to school, I think I may just lose my mind, especially with the bickering!
Other things have been going well around here. Damien has started saying "bee-boo!" for peek-a-boo. They are discussing our upcoming evaluation for next year's services and where we will place him. I have made them fully aware I want him at Early Intervention his first year. His Apraxia and tongue thrust are still so bad that even the director of the center knows he'll fail his eval. He's one of the worst speech cases they've had come through. We can't figure out why he can't talk because otherwise he's a super smart guy. Alot of people will ask publicly "does he have a lisp?" It's not a lisp, it's more that he can't control his tongue and where to put it so he sounds like Sylvester the cat.
Mia has been trying to stand and walk because of how fast she takes off when she can push her weight up with her leg. She's still not walking much, just when she feels like showing off and then it's back to walking on her knees.The kids had their first soccer game this season on Saturday and we nearly froze to death. I believe it was 30 degrees and a 20 mph wind speed. This swing shift weather is horrible. So we bundled up in blankets while our kids half freezing played their games then got into the car wiping huge loads of snot from each of their faces.
