We are having one of those days, you know the kind of day where nothing goes right. The kind of day where everyone, including myself, isn’t motivated to do much of anything. The kind of day where one Latin worksheet causes this kind of reaction.
I blame the long three-day weekend. The kids and I left town to go up to the mountains for a while. We had a great time up there enjoying the outdoors and the cooler weather.
Kingsley had a great time too.
Now we need to switch gears and get back to our routine. It isn’t going quite as I had planned. The twins were late to their Tuesday morning work out session with their trainer. They weren’t a little late, they were a half-hour late, which meant they were late coming home and getting back to school. Autry’s computer broke, so she was unable to do her math.
The twins lost their history book, so they can’t read today. There is a good deal of teen angst in the house this morning, short tempers, and a few tears from my youngest. There is also far too many incidents of dramatic heads-falling-to-the-table going on.
I am calling it an early morning and giving the kids a few hours to re-group. This afternoon we will come back together and try to get as much work done as we can. What we don’t finish today we will get to later this week or this weekend.
Flexibility – another benefit of homeschooling.
