HEY Y'ALL! I apologize for the delays in my post, LIFE gets in the way at times and other priorities are necessary. Where to start....
So Spring Break was the last time we were out in public enjoying life as a Family! Immediately after that Coronavirus came flying thru the U.S. and schools were closed for 1 week, then extended to 2-3 weeks. We are not at Week # 6 or 7 and school is now closed for the remainder of the school year.
Now comes 'Distant Learning" a whole new lifestyle which will become my new norm for the next month or two.
Talk about a whirlwind of STRESS! Not only do my husband and I have full time jobs but with two elementary school aged children, What are we going to do!! We are blessed to work for an amazing company that understands work life balance and are currently equipped to "work at home". I am time time off to care for my children as we do not have child care for them through all of this, unfortunately they are at that age that if left alone, someone is going to get hurt, but also to young to understand.
So Schools out, took leave from work to become a Homeschool Teacher or at least the best that I can be to mold their young minds and WOW! It's rough! Teachers are AMAZING! It's not something i'll ever take lightly not that I ever did but more so even now. On a side note, both of my kids have been expelled from "distant learning" at least 3 times this month alone. No Joke! Teachers have so much patience!! Bless their hearts!
As you all know I'm an Erin Condren Influencer aka #ECSQUAD and was so LUCKY & GRATEFUL that Tori Johnson sent some help!! I received a TEACHER LESSON PLANNER along with some helpful accessories from Erin Condren. What a GODSEND this was! I have many planners for other things but for school, I was not prepared! Huge Thanks to Erin & Tori for their love and support during these trying times. You can check out the video down below! Check out Week 2 and How I failed! Seriously, it's hard trying to find something to work these kids. Not all kids are alike... find what works for them.
Right now, it's working smoothly.... My son is the early riser, and likes to get things done, he's also the oldest so I work with him in the mornings and during that time my daughter has free time. After lunch It's her turn to start work, she's not a morning person so this helps out to give her time to wake up etc. So far we are on a good schedule and things are getting done. Teachers have lightened up the load a bit too which is EXTREMELY helpful!
Good Luck out there Parents! Your not alone!
Here is Erin Condren's NEW Teacher Lesson Planner !! It's available in Notebooks & Binder !
