I hate homework!
Okay. That might be a little strong. But, that’s what my kids are already singing and what I was dealing with as of last week. I’m not a huge fan of piles of paperwork or reliving elementary education. Of course, life isn’t always about what we want, is it?
Where is THOR!!!
Before I fill you in on the joys of “homework,” let me update you about Thor. I know you’re all standing on pins and needles waiting. Our strapping god landed in the UK earlier this week. I understand his arrival took a few by great surprise and then left him fighting for his life. 😉 To hear his story and follow his journey, head over to CC MacKenzie’s blog for the latest gossip. And while you’re there, check out her books. She has some fantastic romance reads available! Don’t miss out on the opportunity!
Back to homework → HOMEWORK : school work assigned to be done outside the classroom , work done at home.
Wonder what I’ve been up to lately? Where I’ve been? Besides synopsis hell? My kids’ first week of school was chalked full of work right from the word “go.” Thing is that it was all for me! Paper after paper, form after form. Duplicates from the office and from the kids, all required to be kept at the office for this and that. Letters to the teacher so they could get to know my precious little ones. More stuff for the PTA. It never ceased. And like the slacker busy parent I am, I missed something and let it slip through the cracks. Not even seven days into school and I (not my kid) got detention my first note from the teacher. Ugh. It’s CRAZY I tell you! 😀 *Hangs head low* This week started the actual homework fun. And fun it has been. 😉
Favorite quotes from my little monkey during work time:
How much do I haaave to draw? I caan’t taake it!
It’s sooo muuch! It takes sooo long!
I’m trying to be good, but it’s sooo hard.
And not a quote but favorite action: so confused she looks for her eraser under water bottle.
Do you have any good homework stories?
Don’t forget, head over to CC MacKenzie’s and check in on Thor’s progress!
* It’s not too late to sign up and participate in Thor’s tour. All you need to do is drop me a line or leave a comment and we can work you into his schedule.
Friday’s post is coming to you early to account for Thor currently operating on UK time.
