The tooth has settled down, so I convinced the dentist to just let it be for a while. Good news.
The rainy season has made the acres verdant and abundant. I bought a pole saw (electric) and electric hedge trimmers and have been busy cutting down scrub trees, dead branches, and beating the hedges back into submission.
I must begin planning next school year, and find I have lost most of my enthusiasm for homeschooling. And yet I must. Any suggestions for relighting my homeschooling fire would be appreciated. Seven students next year. Eeeps~
So to keep it real, let me assure you all that life is not all peaches and cream. I am really struggling with schooling. The attitudes of my kids are horrible, and I don't know what to do about it. As soon as I sit them down to do school, they melt. They don't try. They don't care if they ever get finished, or maybe they feel they never will get finished. I don't know, but this is a rough patch to be sure, and I don't know how I am going to straighten it out.
So anyway, I have to get back to the schoolwork. Til later.
