As promised in the Goals post, here is today's Homeschool Report.
I am so relieved to be able to report--and before dinner, no less--that we have completed all the items on the Homeschool schedule. Today.
It wasn't seamless. It took effort. I had to confiscate a game and a dvd. It got ugly more than once.
A lot of my problems come from not paying attention. I suppose that's not particularly unusual. Like anyone, when I'm interested in something, I give it my full attention. I know what's going on. I do whatever it is I need to do in order to stay on top of it.
But, since my daughter started attending public school last fall, my heart for homeschooling seems to have gone with her. It's wrong. It isn't fair to the student I have with me still and, thus, I have to change it.
I sat down with the work he did today to go over it and see what was what in order to write up this report. Let me just say that I am so glad I did. My inattention has caused him not to pay attention as closely as he should. My inattention has meant he hasn't been accountable to anyone for how he has been doing his work.
I am hanging my head in shame.
We'll do the corrections.
We'll do the work scheduled for tomorrow.
And I hope we have a happier report tomorrow night.
