Our regular daily schedule has just started up again. Although we don't have that much practices this month it's still crazy schedule. There is never a dull moment...
I was just thinking I wonder what it would be like if a stranger came in to my house earlier today. You see in the beginning of the year we always talk about strategies that will help our children with their homework..
Provide a permanent quiet place to do homework assignments...(and you should)
but... my house is a zoo... Today we had our i pod going to Pandora.. Salsa was on connected to the stereo. (if you are on the computer you might be able to hear one of the songs we were jamming to from my playlist). Javi was working on dinner, Lala and Papos where at separate tables working on the homework. The babies were well.... everywhere. And I was just running around. Helping out with food, homework, babies etc..
In the middle of walking from one place to another.. one of us would stop and dance to the music.. to the beat.
Cause our house is a zoo...
and it worked... it worked for us at least... If you are not use to a zoo.. I don't recommend it. Because you do need quiet places to study and work on homework... but for all our animals... it worked. (here are some pics.. of our zoo... ) Lala breaking it down.. Santi and Papos in middle of a jump.
and Ama... Ama... eats.. plays and eats... she decided that turkey meat and crystal light mixed together is well.. yummy... sweeeeeeet... :)
