Michael is determined to be at work on Friday (though the day will be broken up with labs, post op appointment and Good Friday service).  Since this is his goal, I began to enlist his help around here more, get him up and active.....we walked around the block today...and I nabbed him to help with school.  I've found staying home to care for Michael has been a BOON for school. This is only Tuesday and we've gotten 4 weeks of Tapestry of Grace done AND we have more time for the fun things too....for instance....

Have you ever tried to jump like a macropod (big foot) marsupial? We have.  First I had Michael show the kids how far 30 ft was from their starting a kangaroo can jump that far in one hop. 

Then I challenged the two to hop as far as they could....
Yes, we DO school in PJ's and shorts

Michael was exempt from hopping - he was our official hop measurer (I'm aware this is not a REAL word).  We discovered none of us can hop anywhere close to 30 feet at one hop. 

We also discovered Michael is bored - but he tires easily - I figure that means he needs to rest. 

Choosing Joy!
