September 7 - Coding Camp

Well yesterday was Lyric's 5th birthday, and you know how we do... It's hard to say no to someone on their birthday. So long story short, the kids stayed up late (in bed at 9p) and, as always, were up early (5:30a). This made for tired and cranky kids this morning, which was sub-ideal for restarting morning activities. But restart morning activities we did!

Today was Coding Camp, and there was an exciting new video available on Hopscotch called "Subway Surfer", but Lyric was too cranky and fussy to sit for it. Zephyr made an attempt, but kept leaning on me, both to do certain steps of the coding for him and quite literally resting his head on me. I tried taking a candid photo of us coding together, but he found me doing it and tried to smile. I think you can get a feeling for his weariness from the photo:

Trying so hard to act natural. It's exhausting.

We got about halfway through before Zephyr told me he needed a break. We'll try to finish it tonight.  

SELFGRADE: C. I blame myself for the sleep thing, but we tried doing something at least.  That was positive.
