Last night I spent an hour reading and planning for geography and science. I am very excited to start these two new programs this week. Today began at 6:30am to get both girls off for their day....

6:30 prepare lunches for school and nature class, get girls up, dressed, fed and ready to go

8:30 drop G off at school

9:00-9:30 drop L off at Two Coyotes. During drive listened to math facts on an mp3 player we borrowed from Library yesterday.

In between drop off and pick up I have to:

do a major food shop, hit the organic pet shop for dog food, get Greg’s shirts at dry cleaners, clean the house for the sitter tonight. Not to mention squeeze in a trip to the Audubon to pick up Lilah’s shoes from yesterday. 4 hours seems like a long time until you realize you have so much to do to get caught up on a week’s worth of errands that can’t be done during lessons....

2:30 leave to pick up Lilah. Stayed to enjoy a performance by the children. They sang a song about how a child's birth is connected to nature. The children held hands in a circle with the parents in the center. Beautiful.

4:00 Grace came home from neighbor's house

4:15 leave for appointment, drive time anywhere from 20-30 minutes depending on how congested I95 is.

5:00-6:00 - my appointment. Unfortunately I found out 15 minutes before I was leaving that my sitter was sick so I quickly packed a bag of supplies: nature journal, books, pencils, math workbook, Grace’s homework, etc. to keep them busy. On the way home we played our favorite story: Manuel and His Three Friends from yesterday’s listening for Grace.

6:30 dinner

7:00 showers and tick check and half hour tv

8:00 get ready for bed - we are all tired and looking forward to a good night’s rest.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
