School has my kids WHUPPED this week. They've been going to bed sans complaint a little earlier each night this week and arising a little crabbier each morning. They've both had quite a bit of homework right out of the gate, and I've been proud of how hard they're working to do a good job. I feel like I should meet their school buses this afternoon with the kiddie equivalent of a martini in hand as a reward for a tough week, but I'm not sure what that would be (Kool-Aid? Popsicle? Twinkie and milk?).

Anyway, we are all looking forward to Family Night tonight: movie and hot fudge sundaes, followed by sleeping in till whenever we darn well please tomorrow.

As early as the girls have to get up for school, they have no choice but to go to bed early in order to be well rested for school. Next week their extra-curricular activities will be starting, so they'll REALLY be whupped by early evening.

Friday nights are wonderful for getting to sleep in until you wake up on your own Saturday morning...or afternoon, depending on how tired you are!

Glad to hear the girls are both taking their school work seriously and have gotten off to such a good start.
