“How was your day?”

   I laughed so hard at how LONG it took five kids to answer my question, “How was your day?”  They had completed their first day of school and all had lots to report.  But TWO HOURS later I had to call an end to it so I could get dinner going and get them started on their homework.
   Having six children is just SO MANY!  Think about how many collective hours it is when we are all spending 8 am-3 pm in different places/classrooms, etc.  Ron at work, 5 kids in various classrooms, and then Sebastian and I together: that is approximately 7×7, plus a few more for Ron who doesn’t get home till later.  That is over 50 man-hours!  No wonder it takes so long to de-brief!
