stretching in a good way
it is really helpful, as there is still a clear structure to thea's day, and that keeps her well. she is such a "hans guck in die luft" and can easy forget that she has to eat or go to school or start doing her homework. forget about sticking with a task.
the mornings are working out fine too. as joel and i leave at 7:30am, the gib kids are either already out of the house or leaving later on their own. the kitchen timer has been working fine for thea. she is usually all done with chores and brushing her teeth, sitting at the kitchen table reading or coloring until the alarm goes off. it has been going fine, which is great. she absolutely loves this freedom of hers. being in charge of her time, makes her proud! what a great little benefit.
it stretches my mama being, but in a good way, o those kids are growing up so fast!
