Homeschooling Halted

When my relatives came (Mom, cousin, sister and another cousin) from abroad, all routine and rhythm went out the window... add to that the fact that our helper eloped.

I got preoccupied by chores and then all the holiday merrymaking, and then illness, a trip to Bohol, illness again and now... the backlash of all that partying. Needless to say, homeschooling has taken a backseat.

It wasn't all bad though. I did teach Yakee about camouflage (which led to his desire for a chameleon pet) and let him loose on pens and notebooks so he's been writing more words. He's also counting better now, adding and subtracting numbers (10 and less). We also finished the Ball-Stick-Bird book last December.

Yakee's also more intent on reading signs emblazoned all over the city now.

So... it wasn't that bad even if it wasn't good. And this week, I should add more intentional activities again to our days.

Heaven help me.
