The first week of school consisted of the following...
Eve had a little accident with her bunk bed dismount the weekend before we were to start school so we started off the first day of school by going to the doctor's office at 7:30 am to get her foot X-Rayed.
It is indeed broken. Of course it's broken. That's how we like to start off our school semester/year.
She is currently in a boot like this and clomping all over the house.
Heaven help us all.
Bob's best friend in the entire world (okay, one of his many friends) left the country last night for 4 years with his family on a missionary assignment.
I have been having trouble getting him to do any sort of work, because he wants to spend every waking moment with his friend because "MOM, He's leaving...for 4 YEARS". I know I should be more sympathetic, but we've know they were leaving for 4 months and that excuse has been used to garner permission to have extended sleepovers, weekends camping at the lake, and many, many other usually not allowed escapades culminating in them going to see a midnight movie last night...a school night.
Will has started his classes out at the Community college, but because we were not here when sign up started, he has to take one of the hardest classes he has this year, Applied Human Anatomy and Physiology at a college 30 miles away and it's a Flex Term class which means they squeeze it into 8 weeks. Needless to say he's ever-so happy about this.
The only one who is not having issues this week is Ann, but she's just so happy not do be driving downtown to attend the Scottish Rite Dyslexia Lab school like she's had to do for the past 2 school years, that nothing could spoil her good mood.
Also, I decided to teach them Latin this year...Yeah. What the heck was I thinking?
So...how's your first week of school? Did you send them off? Do they like their teachers? Are they homeschooling? Is it going well? Are you wishing you could send them off to school? Is boarding school in Switzerland already sounding like a viable option?
