And since I have been sick with a bad cold, I thought that we would have an “easy” school day and do our basket projects. Six basket projects soaked in my bathtub as we watched our ocean video. I completely expected that the children would need help, but in my minds eye I figured I would get six children started on their baskets and them let them got for it, while I sat and rested.
You are probably guessing that it didn’t go that way. In fact at one point I looked around at the struggling TWO children and the reeds that were drying out and thought “I am in way over my head!!!” And on top of that, the little darlings were being anything but “darling”.
I re-soaked the dried out reeds that the 2 children needed for their baskets, not even caring about the rest that sat on the floor. Then pulled out the big guns for the little guys...
...reading with Kalyn and playing in the rice bin.
In my fevered induced, sickened mind, I still had hope that we were going to do SIX amazing basket projects before lunch. HAAAAA. It is 12:40 p.m. and lunch is just now happening. Do you want to know how many baskets are done?
ZERO. Yep, 0. Landon’s may get done before the end of the day. However, we bought the suckers and they will BE made...
may be another day. Now, how do I put that mess of reeds that are not rolled into their perfect little circular packages back up?
