My kids LOVE the electric worker who came by...

I'm not myself today... a little scatterbrained and down in the dumps.   I actually slept in til almost 10 and let the kids watch TV.   LOL!

Anyway, upon waking and getting moving, I felt guilty about letting the kids be so lazy (11, almost 9, 5, and 10 months)...  but I'm still not feeling up to par to be a very involved teacher.   ..

So, we did chores and then lunch with the agreement they would do 3 hours of time4learning.com.   They sit down and did a little over an hour when the electric guy came by to work on the power in the backyard for some reason.   He said it would be shut down for a while.. (30 minutes at least)...

So... after cleaning up and getting ready to go outside, they got to go play (in the front away from the worker and lines)...

They were chanting how much they loved the electric man... LOL!   Then.. about 5 minutes after they went out.. the guy was done and gone.    I don't have the heart to bring them back inside!!

     Hahaha, letting them play outside can be educational too!

    That is too funny. I wouldn't have the heart to bring them in either.

    What's not educational about that?  They just learned that electricity can shut down a school!!  LOL

    Hope you feel better.
