"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

I was surprised when I got up at 6:30 this morning and my middle son was up already! Apparently his little sister got scared and went to him and he told her she could sleep with him however he didn't know how much she moved around. After talking for awhile we ended up playing Uno. About half way through the game Dora woke up and joined us. By 9:00 all three of the kids were up and moving around! This may not seem like a big deal to most of you except that this NEVER happens, Dora is usually up around 9 or 10 and the boys are up sometime between 12 and 2 on a normal day.

After Uno, we had breakfast and I cleaned and mopped the kitchen while the kids all played games on their ipods. Bret and Dora also worked on teaching the dogs how to jump through a hoop. Then, Bret and Dora took turns hula hooping. Every time Bret would hula hoop Dora would say, "Hide your eyes, children!"

Today was Saturday so that meant Bubba and Bret would be spending the day playing Yugioh at the local card shop with their friends. They worked on organizing and perfecting their decks and I had them there around 12.  Other than checking in with them to know what I could bring by the shop for dinner, which ended up being Chick fil a. They stayed and hung out with friends until 10:30.

Meanwhile, Dora and I went to Mcdonald's and got ourselves some Frape's and just hung out and talked for awhile. When we got home she watched a couple of Disney shows and played with the dogs while I got together a shopping list and we spent a few hours riding around clearance shopping and picking up some things we needed for the house.

When Dad got home he surprised me wth some early Valentine's roses and then the three of us went to Chick fil a for dinner.
