The start of the school year can be a tough adjustment after a summer with no schedule. A lot of people ease into it. Nope i tried jumping in with both feet. And why not, it worked previous years.
There were some changes though, including a fuller work load. They are getting older, and with a few years under our belts I think we are ready to add a few more academics. So I made a schedule and we struggled to finish, first week issues.
Then I thought I'd like to try a later starter...massive fail! So I tried a new schedule, same massive fail. So I made another schedule and went back to a 9 am start. We had a great day! And we got everything done. Woo Hoo! I feel like we are back on track. Had our day done by 1:30 and an afternoon of play!
