Well, we made thru the first week of school. Getting up hasn’t been easy for Gracie. She’s tired by the end of the day which makes it easier for us to go to bed earlier. Routines are hard to get back into though.
She works on some of her homework in the truck on the way home. She always does her spelling in the truck. The iPad calls out her words and she types them in. She writes the ones she misses. As soon as we get home, she finishes her homework. She hasn’t had that much yet, but that is a given at our house. Having internet service has helped out with homework in the past. I could download programs for her to practice with. It really benefited us in the end. I hope that I can find apps to help again this year.
By the time she’s done with homework, she’s starving! I send a good lunch to school, but it’s worn off by then. We always eat an early supper because she is hungry early. It’s fine by me, I can work on supper while she’s working on homework. At least this year she eats at 11:10. Some of the kids at school eat at 10:30. I’d be starving by the time I left school too.
We are also trying to walk again. Actually, Gracie is riding her bike and I’m the walker. She has the pretty pink bike and I’m the old woman trying to keep up. She’ll go all the way down the end of the street and come back and meet me in the middle. She can ride that bike fast! She’s having a blast doing this every night and really missed doing it last night when it was raining. I did too, even though I am sore. I think she is trying to kill me!
By the time the bike ride is over, we can watch just a little bit of tv and we are off to bed.
We I Love to go to bed early. It’s the best thing of going back to school! I miss going to bed early during the summer time. We may may not like the getting up early, but at least one of us likes going to bed early! By the time she get into the routine of going to bed early, it will be Thanksgiving break. This is life with Gracie
