The first day in pictures:

To say today “went well” would be a lie…

The pictures are misleading.

Today was hard, long, exhausting, painful, nerve-wracking and “take-me-to-the-nuthouse!!” crazy. There were distractions, and issues with not paying attention or following directions, problems with butting in on each other’s work, you name it. We’ve been out of session for over a month, so we’re gonna have to get in our groove.

To make it *even better*.. I was suffering from a sensory overload day and my 5 year old sensory seeking child Would. Not. Sit. Still. Not for a minute. She was wiggling, and sliding, and bouncing, and tapping her pencil, and rustling her papers, and spinning her pencil, and humming a tune, and getting up and getting down, and… that enough? Imagine what it was like for FOUR HOURS.

My nerves are shot – this is a catastrophe!” (Name that movie.)

But we survived. Mostly. I think I lost a few more brain cells. But tomorrow is a new day, right?

“Of course, right.” (Name THAT movie.)

SO…my fellow homeschoolers: Proof positive that planning isn’t everything. After all, there are some things you can’t plan for!! 😉

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
