Oh, Monday slayed me this morning. I was downright discouraged first thing this morning. I have to agree with Benjamin when he told me Saturday night that he didn't like Sunday because it was Daddy's last day off. I agree, the weekends go too quickly.
If you have read anything around here for any time you probably know I am not a morning person but I do want to be one. I just struggle to get there.
I also allowed the fact that I wasn't a get up and going person keep me from being an exercising person. Then it hit me that I just needed to change my mindset. Now, I get up and get school started and then I exercise. Not my favorite schedule but it is working for now.
I found this picture of Elisabeth taken by Benjamin.

Being five in a family of older siblings must be challenging at times. First of all, the five year old often forgets he is five and attempts, often very successfully, to keep up with older siblings. Secondly, when everyone is busy with school work there is no one to help occupy the time. Thirdly, Mom is not okay with a five year old being occupied with television and other screens all.day.long. Fourthly, well, sometimes older siblings help out too much and our little guy isn't all that independent. And that is okay, he is growing up, learning and living a very happy and healthy life. Lastly, sometimes you have to drag out a game and play with Mom.
This afternoon, while all the older Blessings were busy with school work, Benjamin drug out Bowling Bunnies after a series of no answers to screen options. And we played and counted knocked over bunnies, added up scores (he won, by the way), and just had a good ole time playing a game. The time was passed and school work could move forward.
Photo taken from Amazon website because well, I just wasn't leaving the moment to go get my phone to take a picture.
Benjamin is drawing on the whiteboard while we are having out after Bible reading time discussion. Good times.
We used to read and then pray but we changed out format to praying first so Benjamin can get up and move around while the teaching and discussion goes on. Constantly changing our ways to adjust to our family needs.
