The kids are ready

Seeing that it is now the end of August, I thought that it might be a good idea to order our school books this morning. LOL! We still have a few things to finish up from last year, but I wanted to be sure that Kellen and Lydia had math books ready to go. They use the Key To and Miquon workbook series.

I asked them to pull out their workbooks to see where they were at in the current one and if we had the next one in the series. They did and I went about ordering the things we need for the school year. I glanced over to them, and they were both sitting at the table doing math! Then they pulled out their reading! Lydia even cleaned and organized her shelf of school supplies. (Now if I could just get her to do the same in her bedroom!)

I guess we have officially started back to book school routine!


  1. I need to get the kids in some sort of routine around here. I can't believe that Jude is starting kindergarten next Monday.

    I am having the toughest time getting things going around here. It just seems like everything is blah, maybe because it's a Monday.

  2. I need to get a bit of a routine going as well. The Queen will never survive kindergarten (she will start next year) if we don't establish at least a little while of sit-still activity. I'm going to check out those workbooks. A little pre-school activity at home is what I've been looking for.

  3. Jake,
    Mondays are like that around here too. I can't believe Jude is starting school either! WOW!

  4. oops Kellen is logged on this and the comment before is me, Stephanie! LOL

  5. mine are the opposite - they cringe at the mere mention of school. But they're bored and picking fights with each other so I deem them ready to get back to the routine.

  6. Wow, that is a good testament to their teacher! You go, Mom! That HAS to make you feel really good.

  7. It sounds like your kiddos are ready to get going again. Don't you love their excitement!

  8. How cool! I mentioned we were starting back and my daughter grumbled. My son ran and got the math supplies and insisted, "But mom, you promised!"

    He only caught the starting back part and couldn't wait until after the weekend.

  9. The Star

    Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

    How I wonder what you are,

    Up above the world so high,

    Like a diamond in the sky.


    When the blazing sun is gone,

    When he nothing shines upon,

    Then you show your little light,

    Twinkle, twinkle all the night.

    The dark blue sky you keep

    And often thro' my curtains peep,

    For you never shut your eye

    Till the sun is in the sky.


    'Tis your bright and tiny spark

    Lights the traveler in the dark;

    Though I know not what you are
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
