Today is a late start for Natalie, which unfortunately means that both kids start at about the same time….which puts me in a real bind. A friend is helping us out and taking Conrad to school while I get Nat to school, so thank goodness for help! Moving forward, we’ll make other arrangements so that we’re not left scrambling.
I have my first assignment due today and it’s been a wild few days for school. I’m still figuring out how to juggle everything and most days I honestly feel (and ok yeah, it’s only been three days, but still) like I’m just completely overwhelmed. I know it will get better and that the first week is tough…it’s been a long time since I’ve had to write research papers and divide polynomials! Though I am quite thankful for James, because not everyone can have a James in their life to quite literally turn to, read the math problem, and have him explain it on a dime! He should market himself as a math help robot for home!
Humphrey is doing quite well too, and the older dogs have settled down a lot with him. They still put him in his place, which we’re supervising, though it has generally been mild. He is quite a chewer though, so we work on this with him daily. I spend a lot of time teaching the kids how to redirect Humphrey and for the most part, they do a really great job. Those puppy teeth can hurt! It’s in everyone’s best interest to be on the same page with the littlest Park.
Well, I’m off to start today…. Happy Hump Day!
