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!! 😉
