At around 10:30, it was apparent we were going to need a little more encouragement to get kid #3 up and contributing to society. So instead of nagging him to get up or anyone to be productive, I started to just take pictures of each kid and what they were doing - I was gathering evidence to use during the evening reconciliation event when they would have the opportunity to report if they were good stewards of their time. I went to each room and took a picture of them, just to document so that when they reported at night to their father, I would have proof to the veracity of their statements. So, at 10:30, Hyurm was playing with Owen and Daniel, Ethan was sleeping on the floor in my room (where he went in to "watch" Daniel) Mel was filling out her planner, and Joseph was practicing piano.
And that is where we're at. Taking pictures every 15 minutes was good to keep us all on target, but a bit disruptive to me keeping my work rhythm going. I'm hoping it will go better when I have everyone home.
