school, new bikes, fences

Well school is going well. Tomorrow is the end of third quarter. I can't wait till this year is done. Don't get me wrong, I love having my kids home all day and being able to teach them, but there is so much I just don't seem to have time for because school takes up such a huge part of our day. Nothing major but things that need to be done around the house that we just run out of time to do. But we're working through it.
The older kids all got new bicycles this spring so they've been riding around the neighborhood every chance they get. Emily is especially taken with biking. I think we have another cyclist on our hands. Jason is very happy about that. Jonas is still wanting to run more than bike. Although he loves his bike he's working up to running his first 10k this summer. Adrianna and Preston are both... well, they like anything that lets them be active and get out of the house. Plus if I'm letting them bike or run that means they are not doing school so they are happy. Lydia is still running with the older kids, but we're still looking for a bike for her.
Adam and Maggie want to run with the older kids but are now under house arrest by me until the fence gets done ( it's being put up as I type) because they managed to get out of the house and tried to follow Jonas and Preston and got picked up down the street by a police officer who lives here in the neighborhood and was on her way to work. That happened the day the materials for the fence were delivered, isn't that always the way.
Yes, the adventures never end here at the Guffey's.

Ah the joys of homeschooling and kids. Know what you mean about not having time to do other things while homeschooling but so worth it. Be nice to enjoy the summer when schooling is done. Hope the fence is up I'm sure by now.
