falling asleep are you?

Timothy, my kindergärtner, is bright enough that we are using Daniel's second-grade curriculum to teach him alongside his second-grade brother.  It makes things much easier, and Timothy loves the math, English, spelling, and reading curriculum.  But second-grade science?  Not so much.

Overheard at the teaching table this morning, while Daddy taught about fossils:

Timothy:  "You're making me fall asleep!"

Plan B for Timothy's science coming soon.

Why Saturday school?  Daddy works all night long on Wednesday night, arriving home at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.  I have to keep the kids quiet while he sleeps, so we decided to take Thursdays off.  When he wakes up between 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., I then go out and run our errands.
