Well the schedules are all entered into homeschool tracker for the next part of the year. I am ready with books, worksheets, science kits and more. I have each day planned out and it should run like clock work. Should being the key word. Everything hangs in the balance of the children's (and even mine) attitudes. You know those days where you have a perfect day planned out only to have it ruined by a sulking kid not wanting to write their spelling words or dead set on forgetting every math fact you ever taught them. And the tears oh those big tears...
But that is not the reason for this post. I can handle that and have even come to expect it like clockwork.
My biggest challenge is dinner. If only win a years worth of food gift certificates and we could have fast food and hoagies, I would be fine with that! Not seriously - I could in all good conscience just be blessed and enjoy :) But that is not the case. And I have to find healthy meals and more than just chicken nuggets and pizza each night.
I am horrid at it. I stink. I have no creative cooking gene... and my poor husband is awesome at it! But he is off to work and left with me cooking for him.
So this new years - instead of resolutions that I will NEVER meet of loosing 50 pounds... I am making a goal to TRY to have more home cooked meals. And actually decide on dinner before 5 at night and then be messed up because things are not ready before Dh is out the door to grab yet another Sheetz hot dog.
So how do you do it? How do you fit in school and baby naps and still come up with dinner? And what are your families favorite meals?
