Blanket Time

Just an update on blanket time . . . still good.
The boys love to do it with Liv.
Once the blanket is out, she keeps it out.
She will usually only sit for 5 minutes at a time, but it is still 5 minutes of uninterupted time to work the boys. I guess she is leraning self-discipline. :)

Also, along the lines of self-discipline, we are reading "The Call of the Wild" (kid's version), and recently discussed how Buck developed self-discipline. We defined self-discipline and I left wondering if they grasped any of our talk.
Tonight Calvin said, "Mom, if a homeschooled kid knows that he shouldn't play Wii or watch TV in the morning before school starts asks his brother to play with him and that brother doesn't do it, is that self-discipline?"
lol. It took me a minute to understand what he was saying . . . but I realized that he did understand what we had talked about.
Another character-building moment for our family. :)

Also, if O grows up calling me sister bird instead of miss kelly, I will smack you!!
