Thankfully the good days far outweigh the bad. All of the school work gets done and we have much fun and games in the process. We do a myriad of things that you wouldn't do at school like make balsa wood aeroplanes, gardening, regular cooking and this week we even did meals on wheels for our local area. And if we need to, we have a rest and know it will all get done some other time. Jack now has an outbox and an inbox, so once he gets through his tasks for the day, our time is our own.
I don't want to say it too soon, but I think we may be starting to relax and actually enjoy this home school experience.
