Core 5 (+ necessary additions such as math, LA and foreign language) seems to take this family four and a half hours. 270 minutes.

I'm not saying it's not worth it. I mean, hey--if you can spend ten minutes watching hula dances on youtube and call it school, life's not all bad. But ohmygoodnesswe'reonlyonweektwo ... anditwillonlygetmoreinvolved.

Deep breath. Composing myself. O.k. ...

Wow! I can't recall when it took us less than 6 hours of work a day. It's funny how your perspective changes. . .

Hang on, sista! The current will even out . . .the river will smooth - a couple more weeks and . . . Yep. Smooth sailing is ahead. good thing, too. There's plenty of other matters to pray aobut in your world, I see.

I'll take an arm, Aaron style. The load is always easier with two.

Lord help me, we're only on week 5 of core K and we're already behind.

Hang in there, Mary Grace! I know school takes a while. Although, it is odd, because I seem to remember school only taking until 10am and then doing Read Alouds after that.

I guess is the "good ol' days" problem again: All school was as short as Kindergarten, right?



Hang in there. Deep calming breaths. You're doing fine. You'll be fine. And when you're not, there's grace!

You got me to doing some calculating. We average 4 hours and 45 minutes of school a day (this does not include outside activities other than the co-ops we attend).

I know you cover a lot AND you are homeschooling 3 children. I'd say that you're doing great!
