Our First Day of School Went Really Well……Except for……

Today was our first day of school. It went really well, except for:

An interruption to help my husband figure out the cell phone bill

Sending a son outdoors to run laps because he was frustrated over missing 3 problems on a multiplication speed drill test

Having same son write a paragraph on why he should do extra work on his multiplication facts since he didn’t respond respectfully when I made the “suggestion”.

Getting volume of a cylinder confused with surface area when helping my other son with his math

See---even a “veteran” homeschooler has daily issues to deal with. Maybe tomorrow will run a little more normal? Oh wait! That IS normal!!
