Play Dates

Am I the only person in the world who hates the term, 'play date'? GAAAAH, it drives me crazy.

Anyhow, after school for this entire week, K's friend A is coming with us, because A's mom is in the hospital for chemo. So K is essentially having a week of . It has been kind of cool so far. We sit down and have a snack at one of the picnic tables in the park, the girls do their homework, then they play for an hour. K has been getting her homework done in record time. I think the change of scenery with the homework has helped, along with the incentive of some unfettered play time. K got her math workbook page (both sides) done in 15 minutes today, when it usually takes her 20 minutes each side. Her spelling was done in 10 minutes. Not bad, 25 minutes, I know that she can do things quickly when she is focused. The struggle is getting her in the focus zone.

K's friend, A is such a sweet girl. K took a little longer with her homework yesterday and A waited patiently for K to get done. Today, K was done first, and I had to remind K to wait patiently for A. I am just glad that K is being compliant so far this week. Because K can get really stubborn, especially when it comes to homework.
