While Samantha and Garrett are happily sleeping away I am fighting with my teenagers to get up and get ready for school. I have heard their alarm go off twice, but still no movement.
I have run up the stairs three times already to remind them that IT IS TIME TO GET UP. None of our kids are morning people, no matter what time they go to bed. It is 6:30 a.m. and I am already exhausted from this ritual we seem to have to play out each morning.
On my next trip up the stairs I will be spraying cold water on them to force them out of bed. Yes, I am that mean.
Is their seriously a reason that 1st period has to start at 7:36? Haven't those in charge heard that teens really aren't fond of the early morning hours?
Well, at least it forces me to get up and get some stuff done before the other kids roll out of bed around 8:30.
On another note; Here are Samantha and Garrett doing an experiment on flight. They each built two different airplanes with different body styles to see which one was more conducive to flight.
Launching their aircraft.
Fixing a broken nose on one of the planes.
Working together to measure the distance.
Calculating data in her head.
Now if only my older boys could use this same work together attitude to get out of the house on time in the morning.
I've offered to home school them but the look of horror on their faces pretty much gives away their true feeling in this area.
I have been diligently praying that Tyler would change his mind. We have a private Christian school near bye that has a home school program for High Schoolers. They can take a few classes at the school and do the rest at home. They can also participate in all the sports and other activities the school offers. I thought this might be a good compromise for him. He didn't seem totally opposed to the idea so I am praying hard that we can go with this option next year.
My heart would be singing for joy if I only had one more school year at their current High School. The reasons I dislike it so will have to wait for another day as it will be a VERY LONG POST.
Have a good day my friends, I'm off to throw water at some unsuspecting teens.
