This week has been a hard week, mainly due to a migraine which I don’t get very often but when they hit it has its affects. I don’t think I opened my diary once – so who knows what things I missed doing! I’ll need to do a big catch up this morning!
Interruptions like this have very little affect on Jess and Josh study schedule as they are predominately independent and they just miss the few things that I teach into. Nomi and Daniel though are still learning independent study skills and need my input on most of what they do. Therefore their week looked a little different. We focused on their discipline studies – the things that they need to practice each day and need minimal input from me. Nomi has piano, math, writing, and art. Daniel has math, typing, writing and his adventure box. The younger two also worked on the habit (on gaining the habit) of using their diaries to record what they did do during the day.
It is weeks like this that you start to appreciate all the things that our children learn outside of books. I particularly noticed life skills and attitudes. Some areas are doing well, some need my attention. So all in all though my week wasn’t as planned – life and learning goes on.
Live life with your Kids!
