We are done with school for the year. Everyone passed their work and gets to move on to the next level. Silly Katy told us after only one day of no school that she was bored without school and wanted someone to print some math worksheets for her. I made a deal with the older kids. If they do a good job on their responsibilities and chores they will have more time to play. If they do a bad job, waste too much time, or complain too much they will get to work for me. If they owe me work it gets completed at 9:00 in the morning or 4:00 in the afternoon unless I tell them otherwise. So far I've gotten some doors, window sills and floors washed. I had some help on a short cleaning project I was tackling and the bookshelf upstairs is on its way to having the books look like they belong on it again. This morning Clark and Felicity were in the backyard at 7:30 picking yellow flowers for me. They are so sweet. Quinn has been up since sometime after 5 am and he even convinced me to give him some breakfast at 6:30. He'll be ready for a nap soon.
