Daily Activities

Waiting in line to pick up school work packets 
  This is week 3 of homeschool and luckily my daughter has been off for the last two and a half weeks to lead the troops through their paces.
School typically starts at 9 AM with each kiddo signing on to their laptop to access a few online learning programs that have been assigned by their teachers.  Each Monday, I drive to their school to pick up grade level packets of work and to turn in the packets from the previous week.  This is an activity I look forward to as it gets me out of the house for a bit.

When my daughter goes back to work next week,  (she works nights) I will be taking the lead with the distance learning facilitation.  Working with the kiddos is much like what I did when I was a teacher assistant and I am comfortable with the challenge.

There are many breaks during the morning and typically we don't go past three hours for active learning.  You can pretty much tell when the kiddos are done, the fidgeting and lack of concentration is at its max. 

The rest of the day is meal prep and planning, trying to stay on top of daily chores and maybe clean out a cabinet or two.  Maybe a closet can get looked at too.  Lord knows there are so many things that need to get cleaned out. 

So, pretty much every day is the same.  School, meal planning, and possible cleaning of closets and cabinets. It certainly could be worse.

What does your day look like? 


  1. Since there are no children here, there is no school. I get up between 8 and 10, watch news, eat, and get on my computer. Today, I have to go mail a birthday card I did not mail yesterday. most of my thought and energy is spent on getting a meal done everyday or leftovers on the table. Since I awake exhausted, days seem harder than they should be.

  2. You are so lucky to have your grandkids close, or maybe you don't feel lucky? Bless you.

    1. I am definitely lucky to have the kiddos and their parents on the property. They make me happy and I love being a part of their daily lives. There are moments the I need a break, lol, but they are few and far between.
