One week down!

Sam said "You aren't going to do this everyday, right?"

Ah, no.  Isaiah kindly reminded me this week that I hadn't cleaned the toilet yet.  I won't be writing nightly about our experience for the day homeschooling.  Right now I have a basket of clean clothes that are screaming my name to be folded...I won't even think about putting them away for awhile. :)

I greatly underestimated the time commitment.  When people would say, "Oh sometimes the housework has to slide."  I would think to myself, "Seriously?  I wasted so much time when the kids were in school I don't think it could be worse."  Oh it is so different than I had imagined AND I have Sam home with me this week to help.  Plus next week will start our history program plus Isaiah's reading curriculum. 

Today went well, even with spilled cereal in the living room during Isaiah's lessons.  :)  Note to self: cereal with milk in the living room is a big no-no.  We took the kiddos to the skate park and the playground.  What are we going to do when the weather gets cold and they are cooped up inside all day?!?!?

Oh, April! There are days I would say, 'schooling-done, house-cleaned, or woodstove going, but I can't do it all.' You learn to adjust and focus on what's important. The house isn't a disaster, but it's not white-glove clean anymore. Have the pizza # on hand. :) Enjoy those kids!!!!
