Hey, so on the bright side, thanks to homeschooling, "Friday" actually means something again! The concept of time is BACK, baby! Two whole days off from pretending my children are actually learning anything via a patchwork jungle of videos and apps and more videos! (And also from pretending that I can find Japan on an unlabeled map or do ANYTHING fraction related without cheating with my phone.)
I sense that Ezra feels similarly.
His teacher responded that yes, yes, it is indeed all-caps ANNOYING but alas, the only way through it is through, 15-20 ANNOYING minutes a day, until...
Yeah, there's still not really an end for that sentence.
Ike is currently completing his Health class assignment, which is an animated video about washing your hands featuring a robot. That seems unsafe! Especially considering that Ike accidentally microwaved a metal spoon just this morning! And two nights ago I had to remind Jason to unplug the toaster before using a fork to dig out a stuck piece of sourdough! And an alarming portion of the country has decided that masks and a lack of dine-in brunch options are violent assaults on MAH FREEDOMES!
SCIENCE IS REAL, PEOPLE! DON'T PUT YOUR ROBOTS IN WATER.
Sorry. This is supposed to be the stress-free portion of our blog programming. I'm fine. I'm really fine, everything is fine, except for that fucking Lexia Core 5 and her fucking bitch-ass lectures.
Jason and Ezra have both had at least one at-home DIY haircut. Noah and Ike both have almost infuriatingly good hair that manages to look thicker/wavier/shinier/more on-purpose male-model tussled the longer we neglect it.
(I've trimmed my split ends and there's a big bag of henna powder under my bathroom sink but I've still let my color fade and my quarantine roots grow free so far, for no real reason. I feel like they pull focus from my feet, which are truly horrific-looking at this point.)
Lizard toes aside, let me end (another) week by stating the obvious: I'm really grateful that of all the people on earth, I get to be stuck at home with this particularly wonderful four.
UPDATE: Ike has finished his Health assignment, including answering the question "Why is proper handwashing so important?"
