MoTR Monday – Bedschooling and Detoxing

This has been an awful day. There I said it. I was ready for the day to end before noon! My kids have been watching waaaaay too much TV lately and it has rotted their brain, turning them into monsters. No more TV in this house. The detox isn’t pretty but I know it won’t last long.

My plan was to start school today but on Friday I pulled something in my neck and could hardly move all weekend, therefore, the school room is not ready. (We’re turning R1’s bedroom, which is actually the playroom, into the school room.) In addition we are rearranging the house – switching the living and dining areas. So the house is in disarray, to say the least.

As a result we had school on my bed today, and probably will tomorrow, too. :) It was interesting, that’s for sure and I wish I had taken a picture. I pulled the girls princess table up to the foot of the bed and they did their work there while R1 and I sat on the bed (while the girls took turns walking/jumping/climbing over us). It’s going to take me some time to figure out how to engage the girls while teaching R1 without using the TV. Pray for me.

Fell Off the Wagon

I’ve been slammed editing sessions and haven’t been blogging, and I was doing so well!

We kinda started school yesterday, more of trial-run to see what I need to adjust since the girls will be doing stuff this year. R1 surprised himself by reading the Pledge of Allegiance on his own!

When we finished I told him he needed to read for 10 minutes, and he chose Curious George. R3 climbed up next to him so he read it aloud to her.
