Survival Is The Key!

First day of school picture.

Well, we did it! We have successfully completed our first week of homeschooling. David was pretty much a trooper through our first couple days...when I wasn't really sure how to do this. I think now we have developed a schedule that is working for us....which is good, because I love schedules!! (and lists...irrelevant point, I know) We try to get the bulk of our work done in the morning and the rest we do during Braydon's nap. It is much easier to do the more tedious curriculum with the three year old at rest.

Braydon is also doing well with his schoolwork. We have pretty much conquered the shapes and colors and are moving onto letters and numbers....he really does not have that much enthusiasm when it comes to this part....WAH! I am able to get him to do a few things, but his mind is very active and with that comes 3-4 minute sittings....then he is to the playroom. Oh well, it will come in time. He does love to sit at the computer and play toddler games and is rather "handy" with a mouse. A friend of mine let us use a computer game of hers and he absolutely loved it. Yes, big shocker, I wrote it down on a LIST to buy next time I go to the "Kana".

So, after the first week I still have all of my hair, was able to sleep at night, and I kept up with all of my other chores. It makes a very full day, but my kids are worth it.
