We pretty much did the whole road trip thing last week so I did wake up this morning with a mixture of trepidation and excitement. Usually if time is skipped, the dc have brain fog and whew it can be thick like pea soup. 🙂 Today was different – hallelujah! I eased into some things and both did great and dd did wonderful on her addition. There was a mini-meltdown before dinner when I had the audacity to ask her to actually think about reading a rookie reader book by herself. I let her know I was there to help while I cooked but after 3 pages of her only, then 3 pages of us, she just decided that crying would get her out of it. I just let her put it down and later when dh came home, I asked him to go through it with her. Of course, he does it his way (read not mindful of the phonics rules and the like) so I just let the 2 of them be and she finished the book. After finishing she and ds were doodling so she spells the word smile which had caused the meltdown. What in the world?!?!? 😮

Tomorrow will be another light day as I have to tackle some things in the house and grocery shopping since we were gone for like a week. All in all, it was a good day.
