What's working and what's not:
What's Working: It is crucial to do reviews on Friday or Saturday for my sanity and so I know exactly where the boys are. Every one of them had "forgotten" to do things again this week, and some were huge. If I don't do the review, then we start off Monday already behind and it's downhill from there.
What's not: I was thinking that the Latin program would be a video/workbook class that I was miniminally involved in, but I can see that it's going to require more hands on for me and my youngest. Which is fine, as I'd like to learn too, but it will require more intentionality with my mornings and tweaking my routine.
What's working: Pre-Prep on Saturday. This is working AWESOMELY. I take a couple hours to pre-cook, mix, chop, and store what I'll be using for the week. It makes sticking to my menu super easy because most of the work is already done.
What's not: The boys cannot continue to cook on the weeknights. It just isn't working with school. I'm taking that back for this week and putting them on dishes duty until I figure something else out.
What's working: The Prayer Notebook by Gina Garland is working well, though I'm nowhere near done yet. It's nice to have some organization, and I REALLY REALLY love the small sized half binder. Crazy LOVE it.
What's not: It's not working to wait till I feel like doing Bible reading or prayer, or doing stupid things first, like anything and everything online. Last week was much better, but it is still a temptation to waste my precious morning time with stupid things. Still tweaking my morning routine to do the BEST first.
