This morning we had some friends over as their mom had an appointment to go to. It was a short visit, but the boys had a blast.
The boys found their kites again. The entire morning was spent out-of-doors running around the yard trying to get enough lift for the kites to go. Once I went out and was greeted by this fellow.
He was freakin’ me out as he kept watching me. . .like trying to size me up for dinner. (I’ve seen what these guys try to grab for dinner, so it is not as far-fetched as it may seem. . .talk about biting off more than you can chew!)
I spent the time indoors doing laundry and grading Tyler’s science test. He got a 100!
After lunch I called the kids in to do school. We managed to get the entire day’s worth done in 5 hours (with breaks).
Today our block time was for art. I know, I know they are taking art in co-op. . .
They haven’t really liked co-op art. . .
Anyway, what’s it going to hurt to have art as an extra?
Now, I have one guy that wants to be an artist when he grows up. . .
And I have another that is so not inclined. (In fact, we will have to work on his “directions” a bit more. . .) But the one who is not inclined to be an artist just loves to talk to his brother who is. . .so it’s all one happy interaction.
Oh, and you may be wondering about our house guests.
They’ve been rather busy.
And don’t look now, but it seems they have hatched an escape plan. (Notice that the corner seal has been chewed away. They’ve been working diligently at trying to escape.)
The breeze picked up a bit by evening time, so when we were done with school the boys went back out with their kites.
For some reason it seems much less entertaining to them if they don’t have to work so hard to get the kite up in the air.
The energy of youth!
