Do-Over!

Well that worked out well--NOT! Today was supposed to be our first day of the new homeschool year. It didn't happen. About 11pm last night, I realized that our very first day was going to be "nuts" before we ever hit the books. I'd STILL not gotten the opportunity to organize Kelsey's schoolwork to my satisfaction, we had an appointment at 9:30 in the morning, and the house is not up to par thanks to my little toe-breaking incident (let's not go there, shall we?) last Friday and again on Sunday. YES, I broke my toe twice in three days. Hey, I said I don't wanna go there, okay?

Kelsey also threw another wrench into the works this morning. Ten minutes after getting out of bed, she told me that yes, she DID want to trade bedrooms with the baby. Her room is a wee bit too small for her tastes, and she is finally getting tired of having her bedroom on the bottom floor of the house, right in the middle of everything. So....by lunchtime, she was moving furniture.

We're starting school next Monday. It works out better for all of us. Pete's work schedule kind of got us off track when he got Monday and Tuesday off for Labor Day instead of Friday and Monday like we've always been accustomed to. There's just something about starting something in a halfway-finished week that bugs the you-know-what out of me. So we're not starting mid-week. We have time to rework schedules, heal toes, and get these bedrooms done!

After all, one of homeschooling's greatest assets is being able to work the kids' education around life and not the other way around, so we're working it!

Well it sounds like you have had a busy week! And your poor toe!!! I'll be thinking about you this weekend as you get geared up for starting school next week! As my experience says, the third times a charm (but maybe your second one will work!)

I hope the third time is not a charm with the toe breaking, lol.

I'd put school off, too. Kelsey should be able to start herself off, and let you catch up a bit later when you are more up to it.
