Today April and the children did school a little differently – they had been up late the night before, so she thought that she would do all the manipulatives today. It went well and John got all the way through lesson 12 on Tucker signing. He then read two books – excellent! Lydia said that Philemon was going to be late, and he didn’t show up today – hope he is alright. I had an eye appointment today to get contacts again; while there I found a book of short stories to read to the kids in lieu of watching movies. John didn’t even make it through the first story before falling asleep.
