A Few Rough Patches in Our Week
So far we have realized we have 2 children this year dragging their feet to get their school work done. As a homeschool Mama you know how incredibly frustrating this can be. I have already made sure there isn’t too much work and that the work isn’t too hard but we still have a couple of children plodding through their work. 🙁
This year I have decided to make school hours sacred and we have done very little from 9-2 other then doctor appointments. I So on Tuesday although I planned to get a full day of homeschooling completed. We had two doctors appointments one to check on wisdom teeth, which were actually second molars, and the other for a kiddo who is suffering through hives. Then between the two appointments we had a visit from a friend that spanned the time between the two appointments. So we ended up not completing very much school work. <sigh>

Then later in the week I I discovered that one kiddo was still having a hard time in math and was not following the instructions written on her math tests to go back and correct certain problems. Thus leading to another bad test score which for Saxon is below 80% . Each test for this kiddo has been right there on the cusp of mastery. So we spent a considerable amount of time filing out here A Plan in Place Planner with VERY EXACT instructions on how to proceed.
Some High Points in Our Week
We were previously doing preschool in a very spotty manner here and there as we had time. I was getting upset with the big kids for not doing all of their work and then I realized I was also not doing all of my work I was not educating the twins on a regular basis. Since I flipped this switch we have done preschool everyday that we have done school for the bigs.
So on a high note we’re doing great, consistently preschooling has lead to little ones who are really learning their letters and numbers. I think their favorite thing is anytime we get the paint out, that is definitely over the moon for them. They really enjoy their preschool time and I enjoy doing preschool with them.
This week our co-op was moved to Thursday because the church we use is letting a small local private Christian Church use the facilities for a garage sale. This was a very fun co-op day in Science they got to work with dry ice! I would never do this at home and the fact that one of the Moms is ready to tackle these projects is one of the many reasons I love our bi-weekly co-op.
Thoughts about Our Week
My big thing this week was realizing that I have to keep my time sacred and focused on the kids spiritual and academic development. As if I have suddenly awoken from a dream we have three kids who are half way to 18 and I wonder if I have taught them what they need to know to be successful adults.
I feel like this week was not one of our most successful and that we lost time in it and several times I was trying not to cry. I am thankful that everyday the Lord gives us new mercies.
