It seems like most homeschool families have it all together.
They have their workboxes and lesson plans and time schedules, and they all work for them. I say seems, because I do know better. People think WE have it all together too. They think that since I have a blog and I write about what we’re doing from time to time, we must be doing everything right.
Let me tell you about my family.
We lose things. More than once, D1 has lost his math books or other curriculum. As I type, we are missing his entire set of Teaching Textbooks Math CD’s. He is on the second CD, and has not been able to do any of his regular math since we started back to school a week ago. Sure, we are filling in, but I’m stressed because we need to find those CD’s! For the time being, it is Timez Attack to the rescue. 🙂
We have lost lots of things.
Camera cards, small dry erase boards, flashcards, math books, pencils, notebooks, and library books. Oh yes, THOSE little babies cost money if you lose them! Then there are cell phones, car keys, glasses cases, phone numbers, and birthday money. Lost is a Being Verb. OK maybe it’s not but it should be, because it IS a state of being in this house!!
I’ve come close to losing my marbles too. Recently. Still overwhelmed with the clutter I have allowed to build up, I just started on it. Just. And I’m sure that somewhere in the piles of papers and books and stuff, either in my room, or in the school room, is D1’s set of Math CDs. And I am also pretty sure this won’t be the last time something like this happens, since it isn’t the first time.
