Corey took Mel and Ethan skiing on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining. Even here in the valley the sun was bright and the smog had cleared. They had a great day skiing and thought they could get in one more run before the lift closed, but alas, it was cut short when Ethan took a nasty fall that ended like this:
Fun news is he's learning appreciation, getting injured always does. Amazing all the things we just expect to work everyday. Kinda like the kids in this video. He's very impressed with his Grandma. Don't they look cute together?
And on the Home front, I'm working on creating a Home Management Book (see Chapter 18 of Large Family Logistics - although I think it's kinda similar to Fly Lady's Control Journal which I started once but never finished)
I have started to type up my Days and Schedules and Routines, but haven't printed them up yet. But as I've had them in my head and am following them, this week has gone great so far (2 days into it!). Yesterday I started the day with my routine - up before the kids for some personal study time, then got them up at 6:30 and we all folded laundry cause Monday is Laundry Day. The lady who wrote this book homeschools all her kids, so everything she suggests isn't going to work for us like it does for her, but great advice. Today is Kitchen day, Abi has got her apron on and we're vacuuming out the crumbs from the drawers and wiping out the fridge. Fun fun!
