Home school week 857, or so it feels for the time being, and we haven’t killed each other yet.
Life is going great and I am once more thankful that we have a great, big yard these minions can run around in when it’s getting too much from being cooped up in the house all day, seven days a week.
The first week of this new adventure we spend sort of in Spring Break mode, getting used to the new normal and just prepping for the rest of the school year being spend at home, homeschooling and making the most of things to come.
The boys are doing really good 22 hours out of 24 and sibling arguments are just normal and bound to happen here and there no matter.
This week we have been busy with online schooling, online worksheets and a fun filled homeschool curriculum of arts and crafts, laundry 101, home economics with baking and cooking, yard work, and so on.
Teach these kids life skills while they are at home, car maintenance, teach them things they will not learn in actual school and prepare them for life after mom’s house.
Given I am mostly tired these days, most days blur together for me currently and I am trying to not let some things get to me, some thoughts bring me down, which is not necessarily related to this whole Covid pandemic but just boring life things and trying to cope with the fact that I am currently out of work like so many of you, and it then seems that everything that can go wrong will go wrong in situations like these. Penny pinching at its finest and we will always make it work.
I am just praying for some more sunshine these next few weeks so I am not totally scooped up in the house and get to retain some good Vitamin D during these times of stay in place orders and such.
How are you all coping with these times? What are your feelings and thoughts about everything that is going down currently? I’d be happy to hear from you about it all!
