I want to make sure he got a good foundation and he doesn't have any gaps in his knowledge before moving on.

Sorry yesterday was such a rough day. And, sorry to hear about your friends husband. I'll say a prayer for him. I'm glad today has started out better.

AFM - My day has been very rough so far. First off, I had a bad OB appt yesterday. My BP is up, too much up. They are talking induction. I'm supposed to be on modified bed rest today. My kids...rather my 2 year olds are really out of control today. They can be rambunctious and definitely cause issues, but for some reason today they are just insane. So far, they have broken my vertical blinds on my sliding glass door in my eat-in-kitchen, thrown a lamp down my stairs breaking it and the bulb (somewhat my fault, but they reached over a gate and pushed it down on purpose. It was sitting there waiting to be taken down to the basement. I knew I shouldn't have put it there, but I really didn't think anyone would purposely reach over the gate and push it over before I got a chance to take it down. Silly me. My husband left it on the couch last night after switching it out in our main level office. ), pulled all of the linens out of my linen closet and gotten up to the shelf with the bandages and lotions and such (which is too high for them to reach, still not exactly sure how they did it) and squirted Sarna Lotion (anti-itch cream) all over the towels and sheets. And those are just the big things.

No school as of yet. We may do some this afternoon while the toddlers are napping, but really, I need to pick up the linens and rest. I also need to make sure everything is done because I may be having a baby tomorrow if my BP is super high again.

Sorry to be a downer and I'm not really even talking about homeschooling. But, I guess all this indirectly affects our homeschooling. *sigh*
I'm soo sorry. As someone that has many 2 & under during the day, I can totally sympathize. How are they able to tear up some of the things the do? I hope the rest of the day improves.

So they are watching a leap frog while lunch cooks. I think we'll just take it easy this afternoon. I have cleaning to do. If the kids are still acting tired after they eat we'll have naps, if not we'll go to the park. They have some extra energy after sitting in a waiting room all morning
This cracked me up. I'm sure you posted at nearly the same time. It's the little things that get me.

AFM: We haven't done a lot yet. Last night, DD1 broke the screen on her ipod touch. She had it for 6 days. She's been saving forever and we finally made up the difference as a birthday present. She is destroyed. She was awake most of the night crying. So, she didn't get up until 11 this morning. I've been online looking for recs for a local place to fix it for her. Now I hope someone else gives her money for her birthday so she'll have enough to get it fixed. I feel really bad for her, b/c it was a fluke-she wasn't being irresponsible or anything like that.

DD2 got up bright and early with grand plans of knocking her work out right away and then got distracted. Hopefully we'll do better this afternoon.
