This year we are trying something new. A four day school week, Monday through Thursday. Friday a day off. Getting the house ready so that we can enjoy the weekend or a day for field trips. Or, like tomorrow, a day going grocery shopping. Friday will also be a day of catch up if the kids need it to finish their school work for the week.
We are easing into things this year and so far we are enjoying school. So much so that they kids are thanking me everyday for teaching them. This melts my heart. There are times when I question if I am doing a good job or if they are getting it. Is this really what I am called to do. Then I have little moments like this.
Their favorite subject so far? Science!
This is thanks to the amazing people from Apologia.Their Science is amazing.
This year we are going through Anatomy and Physiology.
Here is a glimpse of school this week.
The hardest issue so far is handling the toddler while we do school. We try to involve him as much as we can but when it comes to certain things I need to give the others my attention. That's when he strikes. Getting into anything and everything he can think of. Most of this week he has been learning how to be calm and sit while we do school. And most of the week this has been his face.
Here's to another great school year!!
