Homework With Momma


So I was in my bedroom doing homework (reading and taking notes) when Madylin walked in the room and said "buck?"  That means "up" in the twins' language.  They both say it just like that.  So I let her up on the bed and she grabbed a pencil and started coloring all over my notes. I gave her her own piece of paper and got back to work and then in walks Morgan.  She also asked "buck?" and got on the bed with us.  I gave her a piece of paper and Russell brought her a pencil and they sat like this with me for at least 15 minutes just making little marks on their papers.  It was really cute and Russell even took it upon himself to take a picture (good job, honey) .  They ask to color every day, but they prefer pencils to crayons.  I dunno- weird.

Are you finishing up for your degree? I didn't know or hadn't heard that you were going back. That is so funny that the girls are sitting so well with you. Way to go Russell for taking the picture!

Well since the girls kinda ruined my graduation plans last year I have had to wait to go back ( ; But I have just a few classes left to get my bachelors in child development so I started back in September and am slowly getting the last requirements done. Mostly because Russell and my mother kept bugging me about it. Those 2 gang up on me all the time.

What a really cute picture. Isaac loves pens, but he's starting to branch out to crayons which is less messy :)That's so neat you're finishing up school, I can't imagine it's always fun to spend free time doing homework.

That's SO cool that you are finishing school! And look how studious your study buddies are!

I Love that you are finishing school! I really want to do that someday... Unfortunately I have a ways to go (I have my AA but nowhere near my BA) But I love how the girls wanted to study with you! That melts my heart!
