Day 10

Today wraps up our first two weeks of school! Public school starts here on Monday but we'll be taking the next two weeks off to finish packing the house and get settled into our new place. Ibis was a bit of a hard case again today but we had a long discussion with her last night and all agreed that if she chose not to do her work during the day, she would lose privileges for the day (tv, computer, playing with friends) and not be allowed to do any arts or crafts that day. Plus she would have to complete any missed work on the weekends with daddy while mommy takes everyone else out to have fun. I think we finally hit the nail on the must-do-school head with that one! She started to protest today but eventually came around and finished all of her work. That child is going to cause me some gray hairs!
