Today marks the first day of “normal” that I have had in two weeks because of an ugly four letter word – SNOW. Since I have one child that still attends public school, it has been a struggle to get Ella to work on her school work while he has been home for two weeks. Yes, you read that correctly – TWO LONG WEEKS!
We aren’t used to snow really in these parts. We got hit first with an ice storm, then snow/sleet, then another snow storm over the weekend, and then more last week. Enough that it kept schools closed for two weeks which hasn’t happened here since I was like in 6th grade. That means it hasn’t happened in a LONG time!
I tried all kinds of things with Ella to get her to work while her brother was home playing Mindcraft for 2 weeks. I think I got her to work maybe 2 days of the entire time. So, I’ve been really looking forward to today! I dropped my son off at public school right when the doors opened and now I can get Ella back on track!
The only bad thing about sending my son back to public school is that by being home for two weeks, he’s decided even more that he wants to be homeschooled like his sister. Though I am considering it for him for next year, I don’t think I can have them both home and get anything accomplished with school or work for that matter. The last two weeks showed me that! So, I’ll have to deal with his complaints for the rest of the year and hope that it gets less as he gets back in to the groove of going to school.
