Day 8

We are finally on the mend! Only the blue-eyed offspring seems to have suffered from this cold/whatever and Ibis was feeling well enough today to do school. Well, well enough that *I* felt like it was time to get back to school - she was rather lukewarm about the idea. I won't pretend that every day of homeschooling is all sunshine and butterflies. There are days where none of us much feels like doing any work! But, you have to get through the bad days just like you would anything else. Today wasn't too terrible, I didn't wind up online looking at our local public school's website and informing the children of what they'd be enjoying at public school lunch the next day! LOL
