There's not enough coffee in the world to take care of this one!

Last night Ava was awake off and on till 2am with a fever and nausea.  She only vomited once, thank goodness!

I sent Marvin to bed so he could take the early shift.  We swapped a little after 2, and Marvin got up about every hour with her the rest of the night.

Morning came WaaY too soon! So far, all three kids have had M.A.J.O.R. temper tantrums and we've skipped math with Benji, handwriting with Alec and I'm about to skip the rest of the school day and turn it over to principal Dad when he gets home tonight.

I'm so tired from last night, I can hardly think straight and don't have the uMpfH to get the kids straightened up.

Honestly, this is the kind of day I expected to have the first week, so I'm not surprised by it.  It's just that I don't know my curriculum well enough yet to be able to know what I can skip or shorten as needed.

Alec is just now informing me that he's ready to proceed with a science project.  Am I allowed to say that I'm NOT ready?

Thanks for you comment last week! Yes, I do think we have something in common. I'm sorry you're having a rough day. There are just hard ones mixed in with the good ones. It's OK to skip something every now and then, but I'm the same as you, I don't always know what I can tweak and what to leave alone!
Our day has been a little rough also. Not sickness, just tiredness and attitudes. It's going to be early to bed in this household. Looking forward to reading more about your homeschool adventures!

Oh...and YES, DEFINITELY you can not be ready for a project...just don't put it off too long because it will be spring and you'll be through your first school year before you know it!

It is the hardest part about homeschooling and keeping a good routine...sick kids. Yet, it's great too because you're able to pick right up where you left off with each child! If they're in school, and they're out with sickness, they've missed things, try to catch up and usually end up with some holes/confusion etc. I think homeschooling rocks; even in the hard ways it's still better!
