“This may come as a surprise but ….we aren’t on a routine.
I’m not homeschooling. The younger two have their packets and are completing them when they want to. The older two are doing it when they feel like doing it.
The packets are there to keep them busy and challenge their brain but it is nothing “new” I have to teach them.
We aren’t getting up super early to do it either.
Because the truth is, this situation is the pits. They are missing their friends, gym, art, after school activities and I feel like the last thing they need from me is forcing them to do “schoolwork” for an hour or so when the truth is THEY HAVE ALL DAY!
We have made cookies, been outside, played the WII, watched TV more than we probably should and they have been on their phones chatting with friends and I don’t feel bad about it.
My house is not a school.
