In Full Swing (sort of)
We began school (third grade whoo too!) on August 15. We had two full days of motivated diligence and then I had a social work conference to attend or lose my license forever. I left some independent work for Briggs to do and he did it without any prompting from Granny (I think). On Saturday- we finally left for the beach trip we had been looking forward to since the beginning of summer! We had put it off due to the cast on Briggs' arm, which he got off on August 3. I'll save the details for another post, but we had a wonderfully relaxing time together!
So after the beach, we struggled a bit to get back going with school. We were off to a great start three weeks ago, but it seems we've lost a little steam. But we are powering through and it's getting better. I was a little worried about the workload, but it seems fine. Even Latin! Actually, the boys love it! Yes, I typed boy-s. We listen to a CD of chants in the car and little Max sings along, "amo, amas, amat, amamus, amatis, amant." He'll probably learn it better than the rest of us!
And good news for me, I am getting some help with my work responsibilities! I have basically been doing a 40 hour job in 20 hours, albeit poorly. Thankfully I have a little more help now and will not be teaching foster parent classes every week this fall. I am very relieved, but still having difficulty managing it all. I've gotten behind on typing some home studies and currently have 6 hanging over me (that's about 180 pages). My sweet honey tentatively agreed to getting some help every once in while for me in the cleaning department, so I can't wait to get that worked out! Maybe it will even help with more posts around here;)
