Week 4: Full Term

Well, we made it. I am officially 37 weeks pregnant which means the baby is full-term and could potentially come at any point.  I haven't ever had a baby come early, so I don't expect to have this one before September 12th or so.  I am scheduling school to go through September 7th and then we will fill our days with fun yet educational activities after that until the baby arrives. The goal is to get 30 days of school in by the time we go on baby break. I think we can do that.

Week 3: Just Keep Swimming

This week has not been easy. The kids were not as excited about school and their attitudes showed me how much they don't care to put effort into their school work. Unfortunately, three our of five school days ended up being recorded as "mopey" and "disrespectful" days from the kids. The plus side is that we ended the week on a high note. I guess I will take that. Because of the impending birth of a new sibling, the air in the house has been laced with energy. All three kids are bouncing around and now that I am in the home stretch, I don't have the ability to control them as much as I wish. Life will continue and I have to remind myself to "just keep swimming." I look forward to Oliver's arrival and a few weeks of low-key readjustment to a new family dynamic without worrying about getting any school work done.

Week 2: Go BLOO!

This week we completed our second week of school! For the most part, school went well but the two kids swapped days for who was going to behave poorly. Are we already in the "I hate school" phase at just week two?  I hope this doesn't become a struggle. I am hoping to get in six weeks of school before the baby comes and I need them to buckle down and give me a good attitude for these six weeks before we go on baby break.
