It's Just Another Manic Monday....

Come on and sing know you remember The Bangles if you were a child of the 80s..... "oh oh oh...Wish it were a Sunday...." LOL

Kids are home from school today - destroying my house so now I am forced to play maid all day long and try to find something to keep them occupied. This means limited time on the computer today. Plus I am just not feeling well enough to sit still. Baby is in an akward position which means having to get up a ton of times instead of sitting to get him to move or switch position. Apparently poking myself in the stomach where he is at is no longer working to get him to shift his body.... LOL I understand he has limited room in there but I have to function so if he is pressing on my bladder all day long then I can't be running in and out of the bathroom thinking I have to pee. I know. That is most likely TMI for some. I apologize. Onto a better subject....

I did get to read through two of my homeschool books I purchased which were both just awesome and I can't wait to use some of the things from both. The Ultimate Book of Homeschooling Ideas; 500+ Fun and Creative Learning Activities for Kids Ages 3-12 by Linda Dobson. I highly recommend this one! Excellent ideas. Yes, I am new to the whole subject of homeschooling but this is excellent compared to others I have read so far. And then there is the unschooling handbook; How to Use the Whole World As Your Child's Classroom by Mary Griffith. I think both of these books, even if we decide against homeschooling Bam-Bam, will definitely help aid us in working with him at home more.

One other thing to mention... I talked to Bam-Bam's teacher Friday after school about Kindergarten for August and she has asked me to go and observe one of the Autism classes for Kindergarten sometime this week before his IEP meeting on Monday. So tomorrow I will schedule that and see what I think about their class model for him. Will let you know how that goes.

Better go see what the little ones are up to. It is suddenly very quiet over there. Quiet is never a good thing unless they are sleeping....
