Homeschool Mother's Journal 3 September

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

WARNING: Grumpiness here, no inspiration, read ahead at your peril!

In my life this week…

I really just don’t understand why the kids can’t all be sick at the one time.  Over the whole week, yes, spread over the whole week my kids have had a 3 day virus.  It is so annoying when I generally work with a few of them together on some subjects so I don’t feel I can work ahead with the one/s who are not sick.  I may just have to get over having a perfect schedule with perfect ticks in all the boxes for everyone.

On the positive side I have made it to the gym twice this last week.  Well I guess 2 is better than none.

In our homeschool this week…

Absolutely nothing!  There we go, first 2 weeks in and we have already “lost” one of the 4 weeks I had up my sleeve for life and its speed bumps.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

I have been homeschooling for years and I think you should know that even if you are an experienced mummy you still don’t always have it all together and you can burn out if your attitude is not right.

What’s working/not working for us…

Hmm, so far I can see it is my attitude that is not working for us this last week.

Things I’m working on…

I have 3 weeks until we go away for a big holiday and I need to spring clean this house in that time.  I am working on a big list for the cleaning, and another for the packing.  And I guess I better work on my attitude. :)

Best wishes
Jen

  1. You're allowed to have a grumpy week every now and again. I hope this week has more cheery days than cloudy ones.
