to sleep or not to sleep!

Thursday, September 20, 2007

Tom is laying down to rest before we leave for school… he is still feeling the after affects of his surgery. It is taxing for him to do more than one thing a day.

Tom now has the church key and is responsible for locking up after the AA meeting on Wednesday night. That meant that yesterday was a long day for him. He had school from 1:30 to 5 and then we came home ate dinner and he had to be at the church at 7. He came home after 9 and was pretty wiped out.

Spencer is also feeling the affects of working long days. He is up each morning at 6am to do his home school assignments. Then on Monday and Wednesday he needs to be at work at 9:35 am and on Friday at 9am at KIS, the new international school here. He is helping out with the pre-kindergarten class. When he finishes work at KIS he has to get over to New View Language School for our Russian lessons. He yawns a lot but does not want to quit any of the things he is involved in.

I just hope he is not taking on his brother Nathan’s philosophy… “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”

That is so unlike their dad… even before he had surgery his favorite part of the day was nap time!

  5. At least your boys are learning responsibility and not laziness. I struggle daily with laziness and I HATE it!
