We have had three weeks of term 4 here so far and school has been mediocre at its best. I start out well on Mondays and we get a lot done. As the week goes on I start to not put in as much effort.
Up until today, I kept going to church for a prayer hour each Friday morning and when I thought about my week and what I wasn't happy with from it, I always thought, I haven't put as much effort into home school as I should have.
This morning Sam wasn't home to look after Christopher and Joseph so I went and had my prayer hour last night. I had a conviction. Since making the decision to send Christopher to school next year, I haven't been as dedicated and have lacked in motivation to give him a good education. I believe God wants me to continue home schooling right up until the end of the year so I have to do it with the dedication that I was before we decided to send him back. I decided that I need to get a new mothers rule written up and put it into action.
This weekend, I am going to prioritize and work out what is important and what isn't. Right up the top, I have diabetes care, speech therapy for Christopher and physiotherapy for Joseph. Speech therapy has been neglected all term and needs to become a higher priority. This week was the first week that I took Joseph to do his exercises everyday. I think the physio is what is going to make a big difference to him in the long run so that needs to be a high priority.
Next week, I will let you all know how I have gone with our first week of a new rule.
