Getting back to normal?

Alex seems to be getting his energy back. Which is lovely because I had no idea how difficult it was going to be to get motivated around here when my dear husband was laying on the couch. It is SOOO much easier to snuggle up and watch a movie with him then it is to do the dishes or change over the laundry. But today we managed to get quite a bit done. I even took Levi outside and had him stacking wood while I chopped it. Hannah stayed inside and did the dishes enthusiastically. If only her attitude would stay that way. I remember the days when they used to be excited about folding laundry. About five days into realizing that this was their job now, laundry got boring and induced almost unbearable whining.

We even attempted a bit of kite flying with the other homeschoolers today. There was very little success but plenty of fresh air to make the effort worth it. After a bit of shopping, Alex's check up, and a visit with the pastor we are now at home, settling the children into bed and settling ourselves into comfy chairs to watch yet another movie. I suppose one more cant hurt........

What's the movie? Coz that makes all the difference. If you're stalling and watching Rambo again, you need to stop that! But another viewing of The Princess Bride - that's a different story!
