Homework Blues

Carleigh is in the first grade. Although the plan was to homeschool, we had to change plans after Emma was diagnosed. I didn't think I would have the energy or the time to dedicate to teaching her, as well as deal with everything involved in caring for Emma. So, we decided to send her to the elementary school down the road. It's really nice that the bus picks her up and drops her off right in front of my house. I will say I am worn completely out doing the homework fight with her almost every day. Yesterday she was telling me how unfair it is that Luke never has homework. He's in the 4 year old pre-K class for goodness sake! It doesn't make any sense in her mind that he doesn't have homework, and she doesn't remember or care that she didn't have homework in preschool! And, in case you were wondering just how much homework she had yesterday, all we had to do was study her spelling words!

Emma has the homework blues too. She's not all too thrilled about working with her therapists when they come. I think she feels better though after they have stretched her, massaged her, stood her, etc.

To be quite honest, this whole homework thing is kind of wearing me out too. :) I'm tired. All the feeding, burping, diaper changing, picking up, bathing, washing, and all the other homework I do is taking it's toll. I need a nap. Maybe the babies will both lie down for a nap at the same time this morning. Oh well, homework is better than the alternative...away-from-home work! Thank the Lord I get to stay home. Just thinking about working away from home makes me exhausted. Kuddos to those of you who are making that work for you.

I think I better get to's breakfast time. One baby down, one to go!

Happy Friday
