just another manic monday

well as usual we always have grand plans for the week on Monday. Get everything clean from the weekend. be amazing unschoolers for the week. learn all there is to learn and be better people for it. And as usual cannot fit ALL of that into any given day. Oh well all's well that end's well!

Today got off to a BANG with waking up about half hour later that I wanted to. as did all of the kids and hubby. Maybe I just need to change my schedule to fit in with a later start huh?
M decided yesterday that she wanted to make bfast. scrambled eggs and Cinnamon toast for all. After cleanup came devos and bible. With a segue to find the right chapter in the bible for the lords prayer to see which kid was right. Does it read sins, trespasses or something else? turns out it depends on the version!

After was Monday chores. thanks flylady! kids thank her too! yeah right! then we learned about St. Simeon from MoH, good lesson! faith that could REALLY move a mountain! The kids were still into china from last week. So we pulled the DK eyewitness book about china out and read through that. learned about the song dynasty inventions. compass, earthquake monitor, paper, and printing press to name a few.

then we discovered a really cool website about kids geography.
