Homeschool Happenings: Fall Break?

Katie King Katie King

So this week…we’ll call it Fall Break. Unplanned. But we’ll be excited because we did two days of school during Fall Break! Whew.

Monday: A full school day, and our last day before PJ came home from a week in D.C. We went for a walk and got what were probably the last snow cones of summer!

Tuesday: Not such a great day. We didn’t even make it through our morning routine before getting derailed with serious heart issues. I did manage to get out cold weather clothes for all four kids and myself, so the day was not completely unproductive.

Wednesday: School! And choir—Emma, Vernon, and Brooklyn are all able to participate in our church’s choir. It’s a great opportunity for them to see friends and learn music skills that I couldn’t teach at home.

Thursday: In which I completely gave up on “doing school”. Seth woke up with major issues in his diaper area—we’ve been battling severe diaper rash since a round of antibiotics a few weeks ago. We took him to the doctor first thing in the morning. When we got back, I was completely overwhelmed by family needs other than school, so I tackled those. Grocery list, lesson planning, and cleaning the house all got done. We got to enjoy the cool fall weather outside, as well.

Friday: Hey, I know! Let’s go to the doctor! Seth has a well-check this afternoon, making our third pediatrician visit in 10 days. We hit the grocery store this morning, and I continued to catch up around the house. PJ is at another conference. Man, these weeks. So busy.

So, homeschool? Well, we read some biographies from the World War I era! This is why we start in July—to get a running start and allow plenty of time for life’s interruptions. I battle major guilt every time we get sidetracked, but I’m learning to do school faithfully every day that we have a chance and to breathe easier when life gets crazy. With four kids, a husband in grad school, and running a school, the reality is that things will come up on weekdays that take precedence over schoolwork. On to next week!

Linking up with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers!
