I love a good Day In The Life Post, mainly because I'm super nosy. ;) I loved when Erika did her photo an hour post and so here's my take on that! (except with more than one picture an hour... because I'm a habitual over-poster. hahaha
Little Miss Early Riser crawled into our bed pre-6 am.
We snuggled, snoozed and watched some Sofia with Daddy.
Working on some Slightly Askew stuff and sneaking in a little Gilmore Girls
Finished up my makeup and second cup of tea :)
Gel, jackets and out the door!
I got a little carried away with how much Slightly Askew I could get done and didn't have an outfit planned so I threw on this comfy sweater and lace layering top and called it a win.
(THANK GOODNESS I skimmed this post before calling it a night - no one needed to see a bra on the floor of my bedroom. hahaha)
There was horrendous traffic on the way to school (a medical helicopter had to land - so scary! Update - the student involved in the accident is going to be okay!) and we had to take a pretty major detour and ended up getting there after the bell rang. I like to have time to get organized and gather my thoughts before teaching from 7:45 - 1:15, so walking in after the bell to a room full of 7th graders threw me off my a-game.
I taught a section of Math 7 and one of my three PreAlgebra classes. Today was Function Rules and we wrapped up our unit on geometric measurement. #thrilling ;)
9 AM/10 AM
It was class picture day today... and this was before the entire 8th grade had to line up in height order. It's always fun to watch the boys jockey for their position in line. hahaha
Mid-morning snack and some last minute prep for my Honors Algebra 1 Class.
I got to see Mason's class in PE! He's the one running with the coach :)
This is my first break of the morning after teaching five back-to-back classes and I was able to have a few quiet minutes (praise Jesus! hahaha) and make a few phone calls.
After lunch I teach one more section of 7th grade and then I have two planning periods. This is when I try to get papers graded, lessons planned and copies made. Today I worked on answer keys and tests.
After school tutoring happening! Lots of kids with questions and/or trying to skip basketball practice :)
The boys and I picked up Griffin and the first order of business when we get home is 30 minutes of kindle time while I get dinner prepped. I used to feel guilty about this - but it's better for everyone ;)
And this happened...
Jack Bauer hasn't been feeling like himself the past few days - it's been rough.
Small victories, friends. Small victories.
Meatloaf is prepped and in the oven and Daddy is home!
We're stopping to smell the flowers...
... and Griffin insisted on being rocked like a baby. Yes, ma'am.
Dinner is over, kids are changed and ready for Wednesday night church.
Kicks for Christ, here he comes!!!
Home right before 8 pm. And yes, he picked out his own clothes. And shoes.
We found a lizard in the hall! In one motion Luke was on the ground and caught it! NUTS! hahaha
He chatted with it for a bit, looked it over, and then found a great spot for it in the ivy in the front yard.
Bedtime for Little Miss ;)
And letter practicing time for this sweet boy.
A few rounds of arm wrestling and then it was teeth brushed, stories read and back rubs for these crazies. It was later than a normal school night because of church - but they were both in fantastic moods.
Finishing off a tea, pondering painting my nails and working on this post!
