It is a constant fight in this house. Constant. I'm tired. The kids are tired. We keep trying to get back on schedule, then something gets in the way like doctor appointments, therapy sessions and so forth. We HAVE to keep plugging away because we are so behind. But when we do, something ALWAYS fights the idea. Either an emergency comes up or an appointment or Hannah's special needs get in the way, or the kids simply fight even DOING the work... or they take FOREVER on ONE subject so nothing else gets finished. I feel unsatisfied and discontent with our progress. One of my ds's cry and fuss during the whole process, complaining he just can't get it. He in 2nd grade math and age 10. All this makes me fight feelings of failure and lack of accomplishment. We struggle especially hard when I try including Bible or devotions of some kind which we are really lacking. Is this all a spiritual battle? Or just lack of coordination of our days?
I am getting ready to have a personal planning and praying retreat for thinking through all our school work..etc. I keep fighting discouragement, as you all well know by now, probably. I have used consequences over and over as well as rewards.
I am hoping that as soon as the pool opens we can make that another reward for getting chores and school work done... but I fear even that won't always work. It GRATES on my nerves to have my 10yo crying through his work. It wears me out!

"How and Where to Teach" ... It was as if my heart was squeezed tight and, like a soaking wet sponge, a flood of tears was released that I could not stop. My tears literally fell onto the floor. This reaction is not an everyday occurrence to me, but I know that I was tremendously moved by parents with a heart to teach their children.
