Now that it's getting a little cooler out, I have been racing to the park right after breakfast. I let little Noah run to his hearts content! When we get home he seems a little less rambunctious and it seems to lessen my mommy guilty.
My next weapon is assigning one of the kids to play with Noah while I teach the other. It's a good chance for them to bond with Noah or to stuff him in a container :) Just kidding, he climbed in there himself.
I have also switched from McGuffy's Eclectic readers to Headsprout Early Reading. This has also been a huge stress reliever for me.
We review almost all of our CC materials in the car by listening to our cd or I have my kids do the tutorials on the computer.

|Noah is putting twist ties into this bottle, he did it about 20 times before he was ready to move on to something else. |
|Noah can't do this one yet but Hannah had a good time stringing the noodle pieces, Noah enjoyed taking them off.|
