Thats what explains me the last few weeks and honestly its starting to get to me. Im trying so hard to keep the house perfectly clean, keep the kids happy and get our work done and its starting to drag on me. Im gonna have to tweak our schedule some. I plan on trying to clean the house at night right before we hit the bed then when we get up the house will be clean. Aside from my personal stress level going up simply because I dont like dirt everything has been going great. I havent been posting much have I do have pictures and such that I need to write and share with you all and I will. When I get the extra time but right now extra time is not something I have much of and when I do Im in the shower. I am "just" a SAHM but I cant believe how busy I stay!
I am starting to plan out our United States notebook that we will be starting in a few weeks like I needed to add something else to do to my plate but its all for the education of my son so I am not complaining.

Had been going okay [if you dont count our horrible Monday where we was in school for literally all day because Jonathan didnt want to do his lessons.] then it sbeen great. Possibly its because after Mondays episode me and Jon both had a talk with Jonathan and let him know school is NOT an option one way or another he has to get an education. So he's been doing better. Today was a very good day. It was Wacky Wednesday so we made a tornado in a bottle and he really enjoyed that.

Great. It went perfectly. Though it was a introductory week. Next week will be the real test. It will be the first week of actual school that includes all our subjects and more than 4 hours of school. We shall see. One thing I do need to do is find Lily more things to do during school. Shes not happy with her small amount of work each day so I need to add more. She is really enjoying it even more than I thought. Yesterday she cried because we didnt have "ghoul" =) I hope she keeps her passion for learning.

You are probably wondering what the heck that means. lol Its a thing that I made up for Jonathan to do every Wednesday in school [obviously] its something FUN never paperwork or any other "boring" school thing, Wacky Wednesday can be art, experiments, cooking or anything else that we decide to do. Since this is just introductory week I wasnt planning on doing anything but then I thought better of it and we made oven smores and they was really good. We also had a math test to show what he will need more help on. He found out he needs to be polished up a little more on subtraction and fact families but all in good time. Now on to pictures of our smores!

Yup. Day one went amazingly I couldnt have ask for a better day. J was attentive the entire time. He even raised his hand when he wanted to ask a question [obviously not something I taught him, its something he's picked up from playing school with his cousins] if everyday goes as good as today I will be an extremely happy momma. Of course Im not expecting that but still day one was great! I cant wait to watch them grow and blossom in their education this year. I have a really good feeling about this year.
