I stayed up late last night working on homeschool stuff and was hoping I would get to sleep in. Jim woke me up at 5:45 because he couldn't find his car keys. I went back to sleep after he left and didn't wake up until 9:50! I heard the TV on downstairs and thought Jim had come home early from work. I got downstairs and Jordie had the TV on her cartoons, was playing a game on the computer, had let Jesse out of his kennel (which she normally never does) and had eatten breakfast! Normally she would wake me up and whine about being hungry, want me to turn the TV on for her (it's cable so she has to turn the TV and the cable box on) and find a cartoon channel. She knows how to turn the computer on herself but I was surprised that she had done it. I asked her what she ate for breakfast and she said the rest of her oranges. Now granted that was about 3/4 of a can of mandarin oranges so she will probably be pooping all day but the point is she had done all of this on her own, without waking me up and whining. I praised her profusely and am hoping she will continue to be more independant now.
We had a lazy moring and now it's after 12 and I told her we need to get moving and get the house cleaned up. After the cleaning is done we are going to work on our map of Alaska. We are doing a homeschool project of following the Iditarod this year. There's a whole email group/website set up for this. We are really looking forward to it.
