Yeah, we’re almost done with the first quarter of school and I’m just getting around to posting this. Whoops. So this is the homeschool part of our university style school and it’s a bit different than I thought it would be. I think I thought it was just going to be like doing homework with your child and it’s not. It’s not at all. You’re a teacher two days a week. Now eight weeks into the school year, I feel like we’re getting our groove and it’s not nearly as scary or time consuming but it’s definitely not the equivalent of “here, do these worksheets” twice a week.
Thankfully, I don’t seem to screwing up too much. Marion still is super excited to do school with mom and Eliza even has her own little “homeschool” we do on days Mar is at “big school.” The teacher hasn’t emailed me to tell me to step it up and Marion and I haven’t ended up in tears, so I’ll take that as success!

That first week of school really was challenging. Eliza’s preschool was still closed so I had all three kids home with me.
Sam wasn’t super helpful either.
Eliza had a table full of crafts to occupy her, thankfully.
And Graham had the sling.
We all made it through though, with even enough energy to spare to make the optional “All About Me” booklet.
Eight weeks later, I’m still so very thankful that we have this kind of education choice available to us and what a blessing it is to our family to be able to do this and how grateful I am that I continue to get to spend this kind of time with my children.
