I was about to lose my ever loving mind if one more morning I told the kids it was time to start school only to hear, "just let me finish this level"! I'm sure your kids all greet the beginning of the school day with great joy, but mine became even more reluctant once they were sucked into the world of TV or itouches. The principal and I decided that the new policy at Dodd Christian Academy would be NO electronics before 4:00. Thus school would be over and they shouldn't be a problem. When we made the announcement at last night's family meeting Ashton announced she was moving out, but they reluctantly handed them over and never once asked for them this morning. Instead of coming downstairs to the sight of kids vegged out in front of the TV I found all 4 kids working together to build a monster truck land. Let me repeat that in case you missed the most important part of my personal little mini-miracle: ALL 4 kids working TOGETHER!!! So now they begged me a for a few more minutes to finish their land but that is something I can agree to much more readily!
