My great idea was to spend a couple of hours each morning working on a writing lesson, and then fill the rest of the week with play dates and crafts, and then go out with a bang with some Halloween trick-or-treating on Friday night.
That was the plan anyway. My intentions were good.
But then children are unpredictable at times, and our light school load ended up being quite heavier than I anticipated. I won’t go into the details, but let’s just say, it was a hard homeschooling week at McKibben Elementary. That still happens from time to time. When the children are learning lessons about their character along with their studies, it makes for a difficult week.
Thank goodness, we finally got ourselves together, our attitudes in check, and enough of the work done so that by Friday afternoon, we were ready for some trick-or-treating.
