I just wrote out my schedule for the coming school year and looking at it was overwhelming!

How on earth am I going to do this and not lose it? How do you get it all done with outside obligations? I have a couple there is not an option to stop doing. I am starting to wonder hoe I am going to get school done with 4 different levels this year, plus all my other responsibilities. It sort of makes me want to sit down and just not do anything. = ) That does not accomplish much!

So, the rest of you that do this, do you just keep going every day, all day at top speed? Do you ever get to do slow activities with your children that are not school?

    You know, I honestly don't know how my mom did it, but I remember that most days we were done by noon. Or at least I was lol Michael was a different story sometimes. I always wanted to get outside and it was great motivation to buckle down and get it done first thing. I am stressed about one though soooo. I hope that everything goes well with four.

    So long time no talk! I am not on PW that much lately. I wanted to say don't feel bad because you aren't going full-tilt homeschooling every single day. Somedays I need to take a day off too! When this happens I have a "reading" day where we can all veg out with some cocoa/tea a blankie and a good book and go to town! Did you get all the curriculum you need? I have some I am done with… – Briana

    Hi Martha,
    I have 5 girls ages 17-8. For the most part the younger grade girls are done by noon. The older girls work by themselves. Sometimes I need their help ;-)After time, things just seem to work out.
    I have used boxed curriculum. It really seems to help. I gave the pages, made sure they understood their work and then it was up to them to get it done.
    The two youngest girls are not doing well with that curriculum. I will be doing my first unit study. I have the year kinda mapped out but I will only focus firmly on 9 weeks at a time. Then we break and I prepare another 9 weeks and so on. We also school all year so we can break when we/I need to.
    Reading through your posts I see such a devoted heart for the Lord, your husband and your children. With that, who couldn't grow and learn!
    Keep on keeping on.
