Here are some things I LOVE about school being back in session...
*We are A LOT better about reading scriptures as a family. I don't know why it's so hard in the summer but for us it is. Sadly we average family scripture study only 3-4 times a week in the summer. Since school started, we've have 100%.
*I LOVE bedtime!! The kids are in bed at 7:30pm on every school night except Wednesday nights. As a result of this early bedtime, out whole family...give or take Ken...is up and moving and HAPPY at 6am. I got to bed between 9 and 10 during the school year, typically closer to 9 and I get up at 5. The hours of 5 to 8am are my most favorite of the whole day. I LOVE THEM!
*During the school year we eat breakfast 5 days a week as a family. I love this extra time together. Once again, I don't know why we don't eat our morning meal together during the summer, but we don't. And I'm actually lying. We don't eat it together because I am too lazy to get up and cook it. I feel overwhelmed cooking 3 meals a day. For this reason, I have commissioned Ken to cook breakfast during the 2009-2010 school year. He's made it 4 times since school started...not such a bad average. That's 4 more times than he's made it the last 12 years!
There are more reasons, but I'll just start with these for now. Stay tuned because I will have MANY quotes to share with you from my class...which my class alone can be another reason I LOVE SCHOOL!
