Starting a new school year with a new curriculum that is much more thorough than the slap-a-daisical home schooling we've done these past years has got me feeling like the guy at the circus spinning mulitple plates (after a lull, everyone will have questions at once and are not shy about interrupting each other, sigh).
And I've heard "this is too haaaaaard..." from so many mouths today, that I just can hardly believe that our school day is over. It's 3 pm. We started at 8 a.m.
It could be worse. We could have HOMEWORK! (Which we do not have, thank goodness!)
I'd love to de-stress by going for a walk, but we have painters here painting our newly fixed upstairs (fire damage, remember?)
So I blog instead.
There's just nothing much to write about when my day is filled with workbooks, checking homework, giving "motivational speeches" to my kids about their school work (he he he) and doing chores.
Hopefully we'll settle into a routine and the stress will lessen.
Too bad nobody pays me for all this work.
