Adventures in motherhood... Mom versus the red CoolAid.

Never a boring moment.  We were happily having lunch, the 5 of us, at Costa Vida.  As it approached time to leave, Mom and Dad sprang into action... because no movement is accomplished without a little prep work anymore.  Dad refilled Braden's drink cup with red CoolAid.  Mom sat the baby carrier on the table and began to strap Peyton back in.  Everyone ready?  Good.  I'll just sit back down in my seat so I can reach the diaper bag from under the table and.... CRUNCH!  What the...?  I totally just sat on Braden's cup of CoolAid that he sat on my chair for who-knows-what reason.  Now to figure out how to get out of this restaurant with red CooAid on the back of my white-and-blue plaid shorts...

I'm strongly considering homeschooling David next year.  He's not doing so great at school.  I know he's smarter than what he's showing at school, but he's too distracted there to really get into learning.  The school is doing fine, they just have too many kids in each class to give him the attention he needs in order to learn.  He's all for it because I told him that we could do more science and history than what he gets in school, which is what he really likes to learn about.  Of course we still have to do the basics, but it'll allow us to explore his individual interests a whole lot further.  He's also excited that I told him he can help plan the field trips.  This is going to be a huge undertaking.  Excuse me... I've got some research to do!
