1. I totallly cheat. I do the girls in the AM (preK, 1st) while the boys play with baby and the boys in the PM (K, 2) while the littles are down for a nap. So we have time for many tangents in history and science projects.

    This year I’m adding brother with learning disabilities to the mix, so we’ll see how that goes! He’s in the same grade as my other boy, even though he’s older.

    Looking forward to how it goes with 5!

  2. You can SO do it! I’ve got a 6th grader, a 4th grader, a 3rd grader and a would-be 1st grader whose mother is taking her time in finishing Kindergarten.

    And I’ve got an Angela, who’s more 3 than most 3-year-olds and who does her best to keep life interesting.

    We are here for you!! You are giving them the best education you could–and from a teacher who cares more about them than any other. Yay!

    Ahem. I’ll just go calm down now.

  3. Thank you, thank you for the comments! As I mentioned in the update, it was a messy day, but we managed to get through it.

    I talked to a dear friend today who gave me some great advice (namely sllllooooowwww down and don’t try to teach them all at once) that hopefully will help.

    May God bless us ALL as we take on the task of teaching our little ones!
