Day in the life of Sweet Pea

As narrated by mom.


About 6:00 am Little Bird runs into my room and wakes me up. I am not a morning person, so I lay in bed and grumble for a while.

6:15 I venture downstairs for breakfast.

After I eat I play with mt sister and brother for a while, then mom tells me it's time for school.

8:00 am I finish math and science.

8:30 I make a batch of chocolate chocolate chip muffins. Mom puts them in the oven for me, but I do the rest.

8:45 Copywork and a written narration done while muffins bake- then I eat two. Yum!

9:00 am Mom sends me outside with a pencil, box of crayons and a sketch pad. I swing, draw pictures of ants and leaves, and run around.

11:45 am I come inside for a drink. Mom is making lunch so I decide to do some playdoh with my sister. My brother pulls all the pans out of a cabinet and bangs on them with spoons. My mom puts on a CD in French and I practice phrases with my sister.

Noon Dad comes home to eat lunch and see what we worked on. My brother is grumpy and instead of eating lunch pores it on himself and then yells. Naptime for him.

1:00- 3:00 pm I lay in bed somewhat quietly and read. I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. When I'm tired of reading I jump around my room and stare out the window.

3:15 pm Up from not so quiet time I run outside with a snack- more muffins, an apple, and a glass of water. I eat my snack while staring at the clouds and catch some ants.

4:30 Mom calls me in to read history. I narrate it back to mom and then run back outside until supper.

5:00 pm Supper with dad, mom, and my siblings.

6:00 Back outside to run more. Mom lets me play until it's time to come in for a snack.

7:00 Snack. Mom reads another chapter from the Little House on the Prairie.

7:30 pm I lay in bed and read for a while, then fall asleep.
