Well, we started our school last week. First day was definitely not what I wanted it to be, but we made it through alive! Ha! Barely! We were completely exhausted! Next day went better. Wednesday was more like Monday, but Thursday and Friday were more like Tuesday. Monday was pretty good, Tuesday didn't even happen. I woke up with a massive headache, so we didn't ever get going with school. Wednesday, we were back to school, but everyone was having trouble focusing. But, we managed to finish at a fairly decent hour. Today was a lot better! The goal has been to start at 9:00a.m. and finish by noon. It hasn't happened, yet, but Monday was the closest we came. We'll get there, but I think that by the time we do, we will move, and then we will have to start all over. LOL!!!
On a side note.......
We are moving! Lord willing, if everything goes the way we hope, we will be moving into our new home in about a month and a half. We are so excited!!! It came about just as we started school, last week. We should be closing on September 25th, or close to it. We found a 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home on almost a full acre!!
|Isn't it Beautiful?!|
Now, back to school! Ha!
We've been learning all kinds of fun stuff the past two weeks. I've been teaching everything from Ancient Egyptian Civitization to Traveling Around the World in 80 Days. Anatomy of the Body to The Earth's Crust. Spelling and Math, Reading and Grammer, Art and Music, and P.E. And Health.
While it is exhausting, I enjoy learning this stuff with the boys.
