Morning musings

There are certain phrases you just don't want to hear first thing in the morning. "Can we just skip our lessons today?" is one of them.

You see, if you had stayed up all night preparing lesson plans, you'd be pretty pissed off too. The girls seem to think that biology isn't worth their time and effort. They just want to do the "cool" stuff (though I don't know how many teenagers think human osteology is cool). I explain to them that they have to learn the basics first, that they can't fully understand the advanced material with out it. They never listen. It's always, "How much longer until we can learn this?"

At least the littler ones enjoy it. You have no idea how hard it is to teach a "class" when you have two 19 year olds, a 17 year old, a 16 year old, a 13 year old, a 5 year old, and a 1 year old (granted, Raven mostly just plays). I can't wait for Toni and Aria to move in so we can have some more kids Vivianne's age. And having a boy or two would be nice. Maybe we'll adopt one. Though, I doubt any adoption agency would see our family as fit to adopt.

Well, that's all for now. It's biology time.
