I didn't have the heart to tell her otherwise. After-all - totally on her own, she had the whole scheduled day off school all planned.
She started the day with a bucket full of papers on which were written things like......make a band, make crowns (as shown), do a puppet show, make bracelets, do each others hair (that proved tricky with her short haired brothers), pin the tail on the donkey. Every time I turned around they were making another mess doing something different. I slipped a few pieces of my own into the bucket - see how fast you can clean your rooms, sharpen all the pencils, play outside - but they caught onto me pretty quick.
It was a good full day.
I'm having a hard time keeping track of the days this week. Monday = snowday, Thursday = scheduled day off, Hubby is working all weekend and my oldest has a full day of confirmation tomorrow. No routine this week at all.
I'm already anxious for Monday - and hopeful for a routine week next week.
Hope is good.
**** fingers crossed that my oven gets fixed tonight.
