We are making some changes. Rearranging our schedule a bit. I was trying to do a little science and history everyday but that isn't working. Will devote two days to history and two to science so we can do more things.
Also figured out I had taken the fun out of school by not doing projects and hands on stuff-was too worried about getting the workbook done. So, I've changed that around a bit too. I'm going to switch around weeks of doing activities. Like this week, we're studying Westard expansion in history so we'll be doing some fun stuff with that-building a wagon from a kit I got from www.bitsandpieces.com and drying apples and such. By the way, check out the website if you like puzzles-they are wonderful! In science, we'll be finishing our animals lessons. Next week, we move onto book work in history and we'll be doing experiments with levers and pulleys in science. I'm hoping this will make things a little easier.
Any ideas or thoughts? How do you do things?
We were going to do much better this week, then my son got strep and threw a wrench in that plan. I'm hoping tomorrow and Friday will be better.
Take care, Mrs. Lee!!
January marks my first attempt to hs three at once. In the past, I did no formal K program, but my youngest boy is ready to read, so I added his phonics lessons to the mix. Once he gets going, its okay. Now keeping the two-year-old occupied is the tricky part.
The older two are doing okay, especially my oldest who does the most. She's the most bookish at 9 yrs.
In some ways I miss those days you are in right now. Your children actually think you know something! Right now I think I could teach my teens better with a bat than a book. :D That's not said to make you dread the future, only to enjoy the present. I do remember the days of teaching my little ones as being physically exhausting, but a whole lot of fun. Hope you are loving it.
I can't wait for teenagers! Bring 'em on, I say.
On the other hand, they drive themselves to most of their events now, and on the other hand, they drive themselves to most of their events now. Yikes!
Another day, there were underneath the kitchen table spoonfuls of chocolate chips and sugar. Another yummy snack.
Cutting hair and drawing on every piece of furniture is another favorite.
Oh, and do your girls change clothes fourteen times a day? My goodness, I'm constantly doing laundry it seems. How do women with many kids (I have only four) do all this laundry? I just want to know the secret!! I'll pay good money for it-well okay a quarter.
I know the teenage years will be difficult too. I pray everyday for peace with my kids, for patience and understanding, the strength to be a good mother. Sometimes it works, somedays, I'm a screaming crazy lady-at least that's what I see in the mirror.
Blessings to both of you!! Its good to know I share the wonderful blessing of kiddos with others!!
Of course we all know we wouldn't trade our kids for anything (at least most days), but isn't it fun to whine with each other a bit?
Mrs. Lee, you win: teens are more work than toddlers!!
