If you think that name change was bad, you should hear some of the titles we say to replace the word "school"!! My kids grumbled at me one day when I said "Time for school." So to make them laugh I started trying to make up titles to use instead of "school". It made them laugh for a day, not so much anymore. What do you think of these new titles for school? - "Learning Love", "Brain Juice", "Mental Enhancement", "Educational Play" and my personal favorite, "Anti-Starvation Preparation" (That one is referring to getting a job when they are older so they can buy food.).
After the chart was laminated I added magnets to the back so we could hang them on the fridge! That works really well for us! We use a dry erase marker to check off what they have completed each day.
Dry erase marker typically wipes off easily, but if your laminated sheets begin to get messy looking from the dry erase markers, just use a napkin and a few drops of rubbing alcohol to wipe the sheet off. That will normally make it look almost like new!
Personal Update: SHOCKING NEWS! I did get to the doctor to get the test results about the lump/cyst which they removed last week. I'm not sure if the news is good or bad, but it was NOT something I wanted to hear. I have endometreosis! I was truly shocked! Well, it could be a lot worse, but sadly, my pain is not going away anytime soon. It looks like I'll just need to figure out a how to live with it. Please visit my family blog to read more....
Thank you, everyone, for your prayers, comments, emails, and support! It has been so nice knowing I have such a great group of people praying for me and supporting me on this journey.
Thank you, again.
