A Day in the Life

It's been a long time since I've done a day in the life post.  I figured today would be as good as any-so here we go!

6:29am  My alarm goes off and I totally snooze it in my sleep.

6:30am  My second alarm goes off and again I sleep-snooze it.

6:40am I finally realize that I NEED TO GET UP!

7:30am I'm dressed and ready for the day.  I get the kids breakfast while I work on getting all of us ready for school.

8:00am Justin takes Jax to school.

8:20am Julie and I leave for school.

By 8:30am, I'm working in my classroom while Julie is running around and playing at the preschool playroom.

9:00am  The preschool doors are unlocked and we are ready for our students!  It's letter C week and I have all sorts of crafts for my two year olds.

12:20pm  School is done for the day.  Whew, the two year olds wore me out, yet again!  They sure are cute, but sometimes it's like herding cats when I need to transition them to the playroom or to the music/art room.

Julie and I come home and eat lunch.  We run boring errands such as the grocery store and the library.  But when we come home, Julie and I practice her Bible verses for Awana tonight.

In case you didn't catch all of that with her hopping, skipping, and falling-here are the Bible verses she was talking about

God loves us and sent his Son. 1 John 4:10

All have sinned. Romans 3:23

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

For God created all things.  Revelation 4:11

I'm super impressed with her.  Awana has this app for the iPhone that sings the Bible verses.  She loves this app and sings along with it all the time.  

Afterwards, it was time to play.  Every day she asks me to play with her.  And while playing Lalaloopsies is really not on the top of my list, I somehow get roped into it.

Lalaloopsies is very messy.

3:30pm Luckily, I'm saved by the bus!  Jaxson's bus to be more specific!

Isn't it nice that he is dropped off right in front of the driveway?  When I was a kid my bus dropped me off at the very bottom of the street and I had to walk UPHILL all the way to my house.  Which was the very last house on the street.  In 5 feet of snow.  Without snow boots or a jacket.

Oh, I kid.  But seriously.  It was a steep uphill 10-15 minute walk.  Kids these days have it too easy.

After Jax has his snack it's homework time!  Specifically, reading a book, practicing reading words, and spelling words.  Ugh.  I hate homework.

4:15pm  After his homework, I make some sugar cookies to take to the preschool tomorrow for them to decorate.  C is for cookie, you know!

Julie paints while reminding me that she is starving for dinner.

5:00pm We eat dinner.  I just heated up leftovers from last night.  I try to make more on Tuesdays so I don't have to cook on Wednesday with Justin being at the church for dinner and Bible Study and the kids heading off to Awana.

After dinner, the kids sit down with the iPad and watch a movie on it.

6:00pm Jamin picks them up for Awana.

I work on planning the next Cub Scout Den meeting, my lesson plans for tomorrow, and my Sunday School lesson.  I'm in a season of having to be really organized or else I will forget something.

8:30pm  Jax and Julie come back home. I get them in the shower/bath and ready for bed.

9:00pm Bedtime for the kids!

I try and relax but really I just want to go to bed too.  I get so tired around this time!

Here is the Week in the 2012 that I did.  Jax and Julie are so tiny and cute!!!
