Pretty much we get up and I make breakfast while the others sweep their rooms and make their beds. Then we all clean up the kitchen. (Rick and Tyler leave by 6, and the rest of us don't get up until 7:00-7:30) We have a quick devotion time, then do exercises and hopefully get to the nearby park that has a walking path. We see how far we can get in 30 minutes. That's as long as we have because Jasmine had/has band camp last week, this week and next week Monday-Thursdays in the morning.
While she's gone, the twins work on the Bridge book they are doing. It has activities especially for kids going from 2nd to 3rd grade. You can get them for each grade. If Kayla gets a spot in 3rd grade at the charter school, they will expect her to have done this book during the summer. So we are just going ahead and doing it. Kaleb is doing it also because he needs the review too.
Jasmine has assigned summer work too, and she does it after band camp. In the afternoon they do whatever their jobs are and finish up any work from the Bridge books. We are trying to go to the pool 3-4 times a week to work on swimming. Other than that, they have free time to play inside or outside.
In the evenings we play Wii or watch a movie. After the twins are in bed, Jasmine has started watching "Murder She Wrote" on DVD, and we watch it with her. She's pretty good at figuring things out. Anyone watch that?
|I had my half-birthday July 7 so now I'm officially 51 1/2!|
|Max turned 14 the same day, and we celebrate Scrappy's the same day because we have no clue when his is. He is about 14 also. But Max we've had since six weeks old and Scrappy since he was about 2.|

|The twins are doing an activity from the Bridge book. They had to try and blow up a balloon that was inside a bottle.|
|They found out you can't do it unless you cut a hole to let out the air already trapped in the bottle.|
|We haven't had a cooking schedule. The kids have just helped or cooked as needed. We'll get back to it in August.|

|I did Jasmine's hair in big, loose corn rows last night, and today several people have told her she looks like Jaden Smith from Karate Kid. What do you think?|
