I guess it's the homeschooler in me.
Look what I found at a garage sale this weekend!!
SCHOOL DESKS!! They were 5 bucks each so I figured if the kids didn't like them I could probably sell them or just get rid of them. But so far this kids are loving them. They are quite sturdy and comfortable. We are on summer break and so the kids have a very lightened school load. They must do a bit of math and read for an hour. All three waited until late at night to get their math done, so here they are. Sometimes they are more cooperative at night than during the day.
Even the little boys like to sit in them to watch their episodes of the Magic School Bus.
They also discovered it was fun to jump across the tops of them, but I had to put an end to that. My public school past forbids such behavior.
The little kids had a play dough afternoon and this is what Faith came up with. The green antenna things are corn on the cob pokers. Another thing I really like, although I find a little freaky, is Faith's arm muscles. She is working so hard on building up her strength so she can do her aerial. She is doing 150 back handsprings in sets of five every day. Pound for pound she is by far the strongest member of the family. Freaky strong.
