As my previous post said, I had my plans all laid out for today.  We were going to have a good day.  Well, we did have a good day, but it had nothing to do with my plans!

Pete had to get his plane back into town and pick up his car so that meant a trip to town for me.  We got talking and it was so tempting to head out for coffee but because I’d made plans I decided to head back home and carry on with whatever we could.

I wasn’t home long before we got a phone call from a friend who was able to drop in to help Nomi with a craft project she is making for my Christmas present (which is why I couldn’t help her!).  So there went Nomi’s study.

Then Pete needed help down in the paddock and Daniel was the best kid for the job so there went Daniel’s study!

Josh was processing mangoes and listening to an audio and Jess was busy with her studies.  After lunch Jess took over with the mangoes and Josh took in a little study.  Then there was “Bedroom Bless” the time when the kids deep clean their bedrooms, and then we headed over to a friend’s house for swimming practice.

While I was in town the kids all (except Josh) worked on their independent work so their basic skills were covered today but the Bible lesson, the character lesson, and the living math lesson I had planned just didn’t happen!  But lots of good stuff did and that is what we have to remember when life happens – that if it is good stuff then we need to make the most of it, if on the other hand it is drivel that happens we need to get control of our day – but for us today, it was good stuff.

Tomorrow is a new day!
