Some of the kids goofed off a lot this last week and consequently had tons of make up work to do on Friday. The weather was beautiful, but I remained hardened to their pleas for time in the sunshine and fresh air. The kids did a great job, so I'm letting them complete the rest of their make-up work over the weekend.
I think that I've reached a point where I no longer enjoy homeschooling. Too much nagging and constantly trying to get caught up on house work or school work is wearing me down. It seems almost impossible to have a good school day, a clean house, and a healthy meal for supper in the same day. Due to my work-out schedule, there is one less hour each day to devote to the family's needs. My daily exercise is not something that I can set aside. There have been too many years of not taking care of myself in the past.
At various points in our homeschooling past, we have tried different chore charts and schedules to get everything accomplished. I haven't quite found the right way to organize my time and tasks. Until then, we will continue to muddle through, one day at a time.
