Tomorrow begins the last half of the 2009-2010 school year in our home. Which means I can't stay in bed until 9:30 anymore. And our homeland security will reclaim tighter restrictions on video game, computer, and TV use. And a stricter bed time will be enforced. And which also means the children will probably appreciate the resurrection of the Hot Breakfast. Did I mention there will be no more sleeping in 'til 9:30 for me?
Speaking of breakfast and the kitchen and all...I've been perusing Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious again. I pureed some carrots the other day. Mark hid some of them in the burgers he made for dinner yesterday. The others went into the mac and cheese this evening. Boxed macaroni and cheese because that is the children's preference. Which makes hiding those carrots in there all the more important. I feel empowered.
They need the energy from the carrots because I have a very full, busy day planned for tomorrow. It's been great having 5 weeks to plan the last half of the year. One thing I've been working on is organizing our own little Keepers of the Faith Club. If you're not familiar with it, it's sort of like Boy/Girl Scouts for lazy people. And, no, you would never find that description on their website. It's just that I am lazy and do not want to have to take the children out anywhere for Scouts. So we're going to just do our own little club whenever we want, wherever we want. The kids still learn stuff (hopefully) and earn badges.
My plans are ambitious for the last half of this year. Here's hoping the kids rise to the challenge. Don't bother me at 6:30 tomorrow morning; I'll be pressing my snooze button.
