Today was our first day using Time 4 Learning.
Big sigh of relief!
At last, kids were schooling.
The toddler was toddling.
The dog was dogging.
And the mama was staying on top of everything. Yay!
It lifted such a huge burden today. The kids enjoyed it and even did extra lessons. They even asked to do more lessons tonight. I fully expect that they'll lose interest in a few days, and then I'll need to enforce it as "school", but for now - they enjoy it, I enjoy it, and it is giving me a whole lot more freedom to manage and mom (yes, "mom" is a verb, here).
It especially came in handy today, of all days. My dad had a heart attack on Sunday and has been in the hospital. The fact that we were able to do a full day of school, pay attention to the toddler, and I was able to visit him in the hospital was HUGE. We could not have managed half of that with our old system of workbooks. We desperately needed a change and I'm so glad we did.
I'll keep on with this system for as long as it works:)
