Hey everyone. So far today has been productive. The kids have done some reading comprehension work. They read about bears and a fairy tale. My oldest daughter learned a few new words in her workbook. She had to write the words 10 times, memorize the definition and use it in 3 sentences correctly. One of the words was obstreperous, which means loudly or stubbornly defiant. Good thing it shows the definition because I have never used that word before! Lol. I got most of the chores done, dishes need to be done still though. (Yes I always leave those to do last because I hate that chore! Lol). I'm super tired, hoping to get a nap when the babies do. We shall see... Hope your day is going well. =)

@LovingMyBabies Glad to hear she used them correctly. I was wondering are your kids on different grade wise studies? Or they all learning same stuff together? Yeah I would have to agree with 7 people there would be alot of dishes

It sounds like your children are very bright. I never heard the word before but have seen it in books, but never took the time to look it up! Now I will know what it means in the books when I see it! I hope I see it again so i can say to myself i know what that word means!

@LovingMyBabies what other words is she learning that I have no idea what they mean? i hate how many words i have to look up as i don't know them. It takes me a whole dictionary for me to look up words when I am reading =)

That is quite a word to learn. I am going to mention it to my grandchildren. I remember when I came across the word sordid. I had fun with it. You are always so busy and your children always comes first. I wish there were more mothers like you in this world. Dishes, Ick!
