Homeschool Vacation Recovery

I lost it yesterday... more than once. I wouldn't say 'lost it' means I was yelling at my kids, but more so letting the tears flow while explaining my exhaustion to my husband. Vacation had caught up with me. "Back to life, back to reality... (80's song...ha ha)" I had kids to direct, homeschool to begin, laundry soap and bread to make, shower myself, and make a grocery list and get to the store. I was tired by noon (with only a few things done). I knew it was because we just had almost two weeks off, but I still wanted my life to flow perfectly!

That evening, Sean presented me with a schedule for the kids. I was not offended at all because I want someone to tell me what to do! My brain was not working.

But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. 1 Cor 11:3

Today it began. No special rewards, no star charts, just this is the way it is going to be kids! Sean even had to wake two of the kids up this morning. It has been good for me. Even now I realize it's time to get off the computer because the kids (and I) only have 7 more minutes till routine change. I enjoyed the short break while they made Labyrinths for their History project. Maybe I will take a picture of them ;)

Anyways, be encouraged after 6 years of homeschool and many different schedules from year to year this is what we are trying (this week!) .. gotta go!
