Home-School...Day 1 Let the challenge begin!
CHEERS TO THE FIRST DAY!
Welcome to day 1 of Home-school!!!! The boys had a good time. Keagan tried to be a little turkey like and throw a tantrum, I quickly let him know I wasn't having that and he had to be ready to work! And that he was!
Little trooper did AMAZING! At the end of the day everything was accomplished, all 3 boys were tired for the day, and they were successful. Home-schooling is NOT an easy adventure. I have to turn from mom into teacher and teacher to mom at the same time. They have to know I mean business and its not playtime or game-time. They know this now and things seem to be going smoother this year. I was greatly surprised at all the amazing fun the boys had with different things. Keagan, when done for the day, sat and worked some more on numbers and things he was doing-just because! They had lunch and then recess, but they came in from recess asking to get back to work on home-school. James is understanding that his work is a lot harder this year, there is more of it to comprehend, and he has to work harder. Keagan on the other hand-told James he needs to be quieter so he can concentrate! haha. It is not always like this, and I won't lie here-because all who home-school need to know the reality, it is hard. BUT....our first day was a great success.
