Homeschool Day 2

Homeschool Day 2

Today started out good…everyone was eager to make their own beds, get dressed and brush their teeth – wow!  As usual, my middle one took a bit longer to eat, but other than that our new morning routine was still hanging on. We all got into the school room a little after 9 and they both wanted to work on their daily morning binder (it teaches about the calendar, time-telling, handwriting, weather and so on.) so we tried doing that first. WELLLLLL… 5 minutes in and D starts to pitch a fit. Ha! Well, this is when I realized, Lindsay, what are you thinking, this poor boy has never done school, let alone every day… so after a time out and a talking to, he got to watch an Alphabet Animal show for a bit, then come back later to join in some singing at the end of our school activities. Lesson learned…now I’ve got to figure out what to do with him (besides TV) on the days he needs a break from school. Any suggestions??? In other news. Today was also our first day with the amazing Lindsey, our new nanny! (McG now calls us the Lindsays.) Side Note: Yes, we do have a nanny. I firmly believe that if mamas are gonna work, even from home, they should have childcare. I’ll go into that another time. She got here right after we finished school and I got to get some work done! Hooray! And the kids went outside to draw a whole city on the driveway. I love it! Did anyone else ever do this? I did! Stop...
