So what did the mice do?

Yesterday the kids and I ended up doing some of Alex's eye exercises, raking the leaves, eating at home, working some on video, working some on church. We took the boring, responsible route. :(

Cat's away... what should the mice do?

Debbie's out of town scrapbooking with her old friends from Dallas.

So what should WE do?

1) Do Alex's eye exercises, work on my upcoming video project, work on church stuff, cook three meals, take down Christmas tree, rake the yard.


2) Eat out three times and play all day.

I guess #1 is more responsible... but #2 sounds like a lot more fun.

Working from home

Today the kids were still home on Christmas break while Deb had to go to teacher training. I was working back in my bedroom on my computer for a really long time this morning while the kids were watching TV, playing, watching a movie. Then I received this email (from the other computer) from my 7-year-old.

Reading with the kids

I like to read to the kids, but often I've not been making time for it. This week, I'm trying to start anew reading with Susie one book a day.

Today was this one...

The next book I need to make time for with the older kids is a condensed, illustrated version of this...
