First Day Of School....Part 2...With Extras

About 2 and a half weeks ago, my 10 year old and my 7 year old went off to school. Not such a big deal, I guess...

BUT, this was the first time...ever. All of my kids have been homeschooled since 1998. My oldest went to kindergarten and first grade. She came home for second grade and we've sort of been camped out here at home since then. Until now, that is.

Both boys are doing well in school, but I think the shine is wearing off a bit. The 10 year old wanted me to just 'go back home' this morning. That makes me sad. But, I know he really is enjoying the day because he is happy and talkative after school.

Anyway, my oldest two kids are still at home and yesterday was their first day of school. It was quiet and easy for them to concentrate all day....a first. We had a very good day and look forward to many more.

So, things are going well for us in the area of school. However, I am a bit torn. I prefer our old way of doing things. But I'm trying my best to keep it under my hat. Not easy for me to do!

My little one also started OT therapy today. He will be going to a rehab center for three hours of therapy a week. OT for one hour, S/LT for one hour and a combined OT/ST/feeding therapy for one hour. I am so happy that this is finally happening! He truly needs this therapy. The downside....each therapy is on a different day and the rehab center is an hour from home. They are trying to help us by getting all three therapies back to back, but their schedules are so packed with other little kids. Amazing how many little kids are in need of these therapies....

Now I'm really wondering how I am going to fit LPN school and studying to all this?!?! More on this subject later....
