We have had 2 months of very comfortable learning, lots of visitors, lots of community happenings.  The time is coming – has come – though for a tune up of our routine.

 

We need to get back to getting all our Discipline Studies done – not just the writing (which we all love!)  Math, Latin for Josh and Typing for the others have to be added.  Also need to work on Speech for Daniel.

 

Our Discipleship studies have been very hit and miss too.  So much so that Jess didn’t think we were going to finish our studies on “Jesus’ Parables”.  We are going to finish it!   I also need to do some preparation work on Character studies/issues (Character First and Cornerstones)

 

I am concerned about the younger two and their ability –lack of – to find something productive to do.  I need to do some guiding here and they have been left to themselves a little too much lately.    I’ll have to be aware of options for them, give them the freedom to make a choice and if they can’t – don’t let them drift around.  At this point I need to TELL them what I want them to do.  I’ll get a list so that when they are trying to make a decision there are limited options.  (Daniel can get overwhelmed at all the things he could do).  I’ll also use the list so I can make a quick decision for them.

 

This term I’ll need to reduce the amount of times we are away from home in the mornings.  This always makes a difference.

 

The challenge for MY responsibilities is to develop a strong Afternoon Routine habit (a good one!)
