Housework, Homework

It took us all morning to unpack, disinfect bottles, clean, and disinfect children.  Laundry is still going, and we will put it all away at once.  The first graders practiced piano while the preschoolers played, and then did homeschool (reading, English, math, and music theory, because they had finished social studies and science yesterday) while the preschoolers slept. They worked so hard, and then got to play outside while the preschoolers did homeschool.  We are ready for playing after working so hard today!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  1. I like how your doing school work with your kiddos. I never thought of music theory. What a great thing. I have two grandsons living with me and I work with them on their school work. I’d like to include some music theory. Could you make a post with a description of how you do it?
