1st day of co-op

Four of the children attend a co-op at our church once a week. Yesterday was their first day. I usually teach art classes but since I'm due to have this baby (he will come one day, right?), I'm waiting to begin till the second semester. Abigail & Emily will take art lessons with me then and they can hardly wait! It isn't fun to be home without Elizabeth! It was a little weird to have a day with just littles (+ Patricia, who is focusing on dual enrollment classes instead of co-op). Enjoy this peek into our day!

Mornings start a bit earlier on co-op day:

I made the children look at me & smile so I could snap a few iPhone pics:

Bubbles & chalk help to pass the morning:

Waiting for lunch is hard when you're starving (& mama already has hers):

Not going to lie... it was kinda nice to have quiet time where everyone took a nap:

This girls hasn't napped since she as two (but she does wait on her bed). She was beyond bored & ready for Elizabeth to return:

So I had an epic mom fail... I guess I so impressed upon Elizabeth the need to be with Benjamin during study period that when she couldn't find him, she cried. Twice. Yeah, way to go me.

Thankfully, we were able to end the day with some cuddles, playtime with siblings & dinner:
