It’s so much easier now that I just have kids in 4th, 8th and 12th grades. My son who is a senior is taking a couple of dual enrollment classes at the community college, so my teaching responsibilities with him are few. And my oldest daughter is starting her junior year at UK.
The hardest year for me (aside from every time we added a new baby to the family) was the year I had one in preschool, grade school, middle school and high school. I just felt a little spread thin that year trying to meet such a variety of needs.
I can’t say that we’ve done it all perfectly for the past 15 years (far from it!), but the journey has been worth it.
For all of us getting back into the school schedule – whether it’s public, private, home, college, etc. – many prayers for a year of adventures learning together.
One of my biggest helps during the school year, is printing the weekly menu and grocery list. No planning required and I know what dinner is going to be all week. I’ve also been training my oldest son to do the grocery shopping for me. He’s pretty good at it!
Here’s what is on the menu this week:
Enchiladas with Chili-Tomato Sauce, salad, chips & salsa
BBQ Chicken with Southwestern Cornbread Stuffing, favorite green veggie
