Fizzed Out On the Countdown

Well, as you can see, I fizzled out on the countdown. Things just got so busy around here, I didn't even have time to get on the computer. DISLIKE!!! But, like everyone else now, we are in full swing with the schooling. No, my classroom isn't done!!! I didn't really expect it to be, just wishful thinking. The money seems to run our before the ideas do. OH WELL.

We are trying something new this year, online schooling for the two older boys. So far, so good. It's been an absolute time saver for me. It's so hard to get 4 different grade levels all taught in a day. The boys log on in the morning and have about an hour of work left after lunch. The girls and I are usually done before lunch unless baby sister is a big interruption, which sometimes happens.

Mr. Gamer doing his online schooling. Looks thrilled huh?

This is our second week and I think it will be a good year. It's going to take some getting use to for the boys, but I think they'll like it in the end. And, of course, I've already had one person say to me,"I just don't like sitting my kids in front of the tv or computer for hours at a time." Well, the instructions are online and they do have a couple hours of listening to the instructions. The rest is hands on work just like regular school. The only difference is I'm not the one standing there reading the teacher's manual to them like in the past. It just saves me some time. When you work part-time and homeschool, you are always looking for ways to save school time and get in more family time. Nothing wrong with that right?

Well, I hope everyone has a great year!! Again, sorry for the fizzled out countdown. I should have known I wouldn't be able to get on the computer every day. I get computer time in spurts. The good news is, at least now we have another computer to fight over. That'll be a different post. HAPPY FALL TO ALL!!!!
