Today has been a day full of many well lets just say challenges, (van troubles, wallet falling out of the van (at home thankfully) when we were out and about Then after we got home, the boys kept causing mischief so I put them to work helping me around the house and working on their lifeskills. Andrew washed dishes, and helped me load the dish washer, DD7 cleaned family room then worked on typing skills with a typing game, then telling time. Others? Well still working on getting them to finish cleaning, and learn cooperation. So it has been a pretty stressful day so far. HOWEVER... it WILL get better today.
