Thursdays are evil as far as our homeschooling schedule goes. As a busy family, we have several commitments during the week that eat up our time. Since I am not one of "those" homeschool moms that let their kids slip and slide around school work, this makes Thursday our day to accomplish not only all our regular everyday subjects, but also those extra things that I want my children to have in their education. Like piano lessons. Like writing class. Like art. What would the world be without art, the written word, and music? Dull and drab is what.

Our usual Friday art has been moved to Thursday this year. Today's lesson was very uninspiring - draw hammers. Ok, the fact that you can draw them funny, crazy, etc. just didn't cut it for me. I usually do art with the boys, but today I tried to slip out of it by telling them they could draw while I read a book to them. They were rather disappointed. "What? You always draw with us! Come on, Mother!" (They've taken to calling me "Mother". Sounds so formal, but whatever.) Oh all right! Hammers. Mine were very blah, until I started drawing nails along with them. Nails are more fun to draw than hammers, so my Thursday art session kind of took on a shape of it's own. I am banning hammers! They are evil.
